Get Extreme with ChaLean Challenge Group – Day 3

14 Nov

Hola 🙂

I started participating in a new challenge group on Monday!  So far everyone participating is TOTALLY awesome and dedicated!  I decided I wanted to track my journey with videos throughout the 90 days 🙂

Here is my first one – Day 3.

Contact me if you’re interested in getting involved in something similar!! I have some other challenge groups starting SOON!

11/26 starts my 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge

12/3 starts BRAZIL BUTT LIFT 🙂

Happy Wednesday!!

Week 15

5 Oct

Week 15 


How far along? 15 weeks and 2 days

How big is baby? According to thebump.com and my phone app – the baby is the size of a Naval Orange.

(side note:  I have had an orange in the fridge at work for a couple days and ever since I read the size/fruit comparison, I feel weird to eat the orange as it represents my baby!!! LOL)

Total weight gain/loss: I weighed 130.2 on Wednesday.  However, I was wearing heavy wedge sandals and the Nurse refused to let me take them off!  SO I think my total weight gain is 4 lbs. at this point (Yes, I’m deducting a lb. for the shoes!)

Maternity clothes? a mix…I’m wearing dresses (regular, non-maternity)  more now so that my “pouch” is not as noticeable.  I have been wearing a pair of black maternity pants w/ the “secret fit belly” thing and while they are a little too big right now, they are super comfy!

Sleep: I sleep fine…Hubby “claims” that I snore….hmph.  Also, I keep waking up late for work.  I hear my alarm and turn it off instead of snooze, and then my body wakes up at 7 AM on the nose everyday.  7 is WAY too late as I”m supposed to leave the house by 7:15/20.

Best moment this week: When my proactive shipment came!  My face is still totally out of control and I’m freaking out about it.  I made a dermatologist appt, but its not until the end of October.

Movement: Still waiting!

Food cravings: Nothing in particular.  I can say that I am NOT a soda drink what so ever – never have been.  But I keep getting so THIRSTY that I feel the carbonation of soda will quench my thirst…plain H20 is just not doing the trick…. but since I don’t care for the taste of soda – I bought some of those flavored sparkling waters instead… Hopefully that will help.

Food Aversions: None really.

Gender: Whats YOUR prediction?

Labor Signs: NONE!! Way too early for that!

Pregnancy Symptoms: Have I mentioned the acne?

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: still sushi and wine 🙂

My favorite roll at Nama – Soy Joy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What I am looking forward to: Our anatomy scan and our first 3D/4D appt (Week 20)

Upcoming appointments/events: Week 16 Checkup on 10/11.

Weekly Wisdom: I have none – I’m new here!!  Please feel free to comment below a nugget of YOUR wisdom though!

Milestones: Had the first person at work tell me that I “look pregnant”….”cute, but pregnant”.  I don’t know how I feel about that…lol

Bump Picture: coming soon. 🙂  Hopefully the bump takes a little more shape soon as right now I still just look like I gained a few lbs.!

Dear Pregnancy Boobs:

27 Sep

Hello!  I’m glad you decided to show up!  I just wanted to let you know that you are MORE THAN WELCOME to stay with me even after your jobs are done in the next year or so.  Don’t run away and head south once the nursing is over!

Love,

Your New Home

Week 12 – LAST week of the 1st Trimester!

17 Sep

Week 12 – Tuesday, 9/11 to Monday, 9/17

Baby is the size of:
 A Plum!
Symptoms:
Headaches galore!
Still dealing w/ acne
Emotions:
Moody
Overly Sensitive
Cravings:
Still ‘preferring’ carby foods like bagels, cereals, etc….
Oddly enough, I CHOSE my leftover steak and sweet potato OVER a pumpkin donut from Dunkin’ Donuts the other night.  I am really surprised how un-interested I’ve been in sweets….Not complaining – but just opposite of what I assumed it would be like 🙂
Also – I’ve been craving Shakeology as my ‘dessert’ before bed.  I usually like chocolate best, but I’ve really been wanting the Tropical as well 🙂

Milestones:
I grew out of my first pair of pants….My regular go-to work pants – Size 2 Express Editors in black.  Oddly enough, I still have other pants from Express (same size) that still fit (snugly)…although I have a feeling that won’t be lasting very long.
I bought my first items of maternity clothes – got 2 shirts and a dress on eBay for $3.25!!
Next appointment: 10/16
