When I was pregnant with Olivia I started doing Wednesday Bump dates. . .Like Hump Day but Bump Date! lol And guess what day it is??? (said in my best camel voice!) Yep! Today Olivia and I are taking it slow, enjoying a fresh set of crayons and box that held my new maternity pillow<----- Which made my night so much more comfy!
Next up on the to-do list, I have got to finish up my meal planning and grocery list for next week. I'm trying super, duper hard to not gain t00000 much pregnancy weight this time around. When I was pregnant with Olivia, I was working out and doing amazing! Then at 20 weeks my belly button herniated. I was doing some crazy things during my workouts that probably would have had my doctor and midwive's head spinning. Eeek! Think pull-ups, abs, planks, pushups. I had NO idea I wasn't supposed to be doing those things. :(
I woke up at 20 weeks pregnant to a purple, bruised belly button and in so much pain. It really put some serious limitations on what I was able to do in my every day life and at the gym. So, I just gave up, purchased a really comfy chair and sat there for the remaining 20 weeks. I gained 60 pounds. Yikes!!! And I was so miserable. Everything hurt. I don't want to go down that road again. So, of course that means, I gotta set some goals and put a plan in place to keep me on track! ;)
- Continue to meal plan.
- Work out SAFELY three days a week. No matter what!
- Drink a gallon of water a day.
On another note, my doll baby, Olivia is about to turn THREE! How?!?!? Her and I have been planning her birthday party and her photo shoot too. :) Can't wait to share!
The big question everyone keeps asking me. . ."Do you know what you're having yet?" And when I reply with, "No, we aren't going to find out this time around." Everyone's eyes get huge with disbelief. lol We are totally at ease with our decision. I don't feel like I have this overwhelming need to know if it's a boy or girl. Although, I keep referring to this baby as a girl I honestly don't know what it is. I think it's just out of habit because I have two beautiful girls already.
Happy 16 week Hump Day Bump Date!
Olivia said, "I'm loving on my baby with my foot." She's too cute!
