I planned on writing to you all a lot more this week, but neither of my jobs let me do that. Ah well, guess ya don’t need to hear me talk about clean eats and working out every day, right?
Baby Toma is 23 weeks and is about the size of a grapefruit or papaya. (depending on what you read)
Here’s what Baby Toma has been up to this week:
- He is about 11 inches long and weighs about 1 lb. In the coming weeks he will grow and mature at a fast rate. (This has been said the last 3 weeks, ha!)
- His blood vessels in his lungs are developing and his lips are becoming more distinct.
- His eyes continue to develop but still don’t have any color.
And here’s what’s been happening with me this past week:
Workouts: I did a workout with my friend Stephanie on Monday.
We didn’t go out to eat afterwards this time. We talked about it, but I was exhausted so I planned on going home to nap. After eating lunch, I felt horrrrible. I had a shooting pain coming through my teeth, and it actually hurt so bad it gave me a throbbing migraine. I trained one more client before calling it quits and sitting at home in misery.
First thing Tuesday morning, I made an appointment at the dentist and come to find out, I have to have a root canal. Wah wah. Big thumbs down to that news. I’m on an antibiotic right now and the procedure takes place next Thursday.
I did, however, get in another workout yesterday.
Side note: Is that bump growing or what?
I lifted some shoulders and tris AND wore my heart rate monitor for the first time since being pregnant. I wasn’t sure if it’s safe to wear or not so I’ve been putting it off but I really really wanted to use it so I figured one time wouldn’t hurt. I have a check up appointment at the doc next Friday so I’ll be sure to ask.
Symptoms: Same. Feeling pretty good. Pretty darn good!
Food Aversions: I drank my first cup of coffee over the weekend!
Pre-preg I drank coffee black but this weekend I knew it would have to have something in it for me to try it. The thought of black coffee was not appealing at all. I put in one of those delicious creamers and actually drank a cup or two. I tried it again on Sunday but it made me sick. Ah well. One step at a time.
Food Cravings: Still not craving anything in particular. I have been eating healthier though and I can’t say I hate it.
I actually l.o.v.e. it! Eggs have made their way back in my life, chicken is slowly making appearances, and I had bison this week!
Sleep: I’ve convinced Brandon to let me sleep with the giant body pillow and when I snuggle up with it, I sleep wayyyyy better than without. I hope I don’t get attached and want it after the baby because it really is like sleeping with another person. That thing is massive.
Fun & Weird Stuff From the Week: We’re trying to pick out our bedding. We’re definitely going with a jungle or safari theme but there are a TON of options to choose from so it’s going to be very difficult.
Larabar sent me some of their new protein bars.
I haven’t tried any yet but the flavors sound amazing.
If you didn’t already see it on my facebook page, one of my clients made me dinner and dessert last night!
All I had to do was throw it in the oven and dinner was served! It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a while. She found the recipe on facebook so I’ll try to find it and share it with all of you. I can’t thank you enough, Michelle!!
Really, it’s the little things in life.
Baby Items Purchased: Nothing lately. Since we’ve picked out our theme, baby shower invites should be going out soon!!! *squeal*
Looking Forward To: My next doctor’s appointment. I love hearing the heartbeat and knowing how the two of us are doing.
QUESTION: Have any of you ever had a root canal? Did it hurt?
