Hey all! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Hard to believe I have less than 2 weeks left of pregnancy! As I’m sure some of you saw, I shared that I went for my last pregnancy run a few weeks ago. I wanted to keep you all updated with what I’ve been doing workout wise the last 8-10 weeks as I finish my third trimester. I’ve definitely been doing a lot of walking, swimming, and elliptical since I’ve stopped running 2 weeks ago. I’ve been still getting some accessory work in the gym in, but only about twice a week.

December was pretty rough for me, I’m not going to lie. Both of my kids started off the month being sick, which then turned into back-to-back ear infections that basically lasted all the way until Christmas. At least one of the boys was sick (sometimes both) between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Any parent knows it is so hard to see their child not feeling well, especially for long periods of time. My little guy was so sick for a good 10 days and then had an ear infection that took two rounds of antibiotics! It was so stressful, I felt so bad. To top it it off it was around the holidays with so much to do, and being so pregnant.

I was exhausted. I definitely went through a period where I felt so much pressure from the baby, a few contractions and just felt so run down and in a lot of pain. This also coincided with when my husband was away for work for 4 days..because…why woulden’t it? LOL. #typical

When your kids are sick they can be ((even more )) so demanding and every ounce of your energy goes towards trying to make them feel as comfortable as possible. I know for a fact that the reason why I felt so horrible and run down was because of the stress of the boys being sick, being up at night with them, dr’s appointments, and just being on demand 24-7 even more so than a normal mommin day!

Other than that, I’m definitely feeling alllll of the last month feels. Heavy, pressure, so SWOLLEN…. nothing fits…SLEEP has been absolutely HORRIBLE. My hips ache, my back from the way I’m sleeping no matter how many pillows I use. And if I happen to be comfortably, I am up with preggo insomnia! I can’t win! LOL!!

Up until about 31 or 32 weeks, I felt really good (as evidenced by my workouts). You’ll be able to see the trend of when I started to not feel as good and my workouts trail off, or lessen in intensity/speed.

Weight wise I’m on track to gain similar amount to what i gained with my first (between 30-35 lbs. With my second I gained a little bit more, closer to 38-42 lbs. I’m currently right at 34 lbs gained with about 9 or 10 days maximum to go before I deliver.

I don’t have any special cravings, aversions, or anything crazy like that. I’m planning on doing a whole post highlighting my pregnancy diet because I do get a few questions on that.

We do have a name picked out, and on Monday we are going to tour the hospital we are delivering at (it is a brand new hospital, my two other boys delivered at the old hospital). Things are getting SO REAL.

As you guys know I keep it real with everything…weight gain, how I’m really feeling, and even this photo below. I don’t love it because I am getting so swollen and big but it is REAL and thats what counts.
