I don’t know if it was because of my post Monday about cycle or the fact that BodyPump was canceled during my cycle class, but I had 10 newbies at my class Monday night! I’m pretty sure I scared some off, since I was expecting my regulars, but we will find out next Monday!
Been slacking on my bump dates, mostly because not much has change.
Here I am at Week 26 (belly button pop in full effect)
And here are some stats:
Baby size: Head of lettuce
Weight gain: 13 lbs.
Other gains: An appetite of a HORSE. Literally can’t stop eating carbs. I did also pick up 3 extra classes at my Y so I’m blaming both. I feel like I have been carb loading for a marathon for weeks now.
Progress towards Baby #2 things: Gentry has finally moved into her big girl room. Nighttime is going well, but she is up about an hour earlier each day, knocking on the door saying
Door open, please
At least the girl has manners. Nap time, however, is completely different. She prefers to sleep on the floor, smushed against the door. Comfortable for dogs, I guess. And, those glorious 3 hour naps are now 45 minute ones. BUT, I’m not complaining. More quality time to chase her around and crave even more carbs.
Due Date: Baby #2 will also (probably) be entering this world via C-Section. Gentry was a C baby because they determined my “pelvic bone structure” is off. Got the email for August 20th. YIKES.
Names: We are still undecided. I wanted this baby’s name to be a surprise. Turns out we probably won’t even have the chance to tell anyone as it will more than likely be decided the day she arrives! I want a unisex first and a very girly middle. Suggestions? Gotta be something VERY unique- I am a former teacher… have a list of names I can’t ever use! For good and bad reasons!
Missing the most: A glass of Vinho Verde. If you’ve never tried this wine, get to the store and purchase pronto. It is THE summer wine.
Speaking of baby bumps, FitBump has asked me to not only review their awesome apparel, but also to review an awesome online gym called DailyBurn. We are given a 30-day membership to do any workouts we please. They recommended the Beautiful Belly series, which I will probably do a few (more gentle and yoga-esque) but I’m too competitive, so I signed up for HR Inferno.
Pretty decent choice for an almost 7 month pregnant lady, right?!
I’ve only been able to do one workout and it was killer. They encourage you to use a heart rate monitor and figure out your zones 1-5. The instructor tells you when she wants you in each zone so it’s like a video game- you work harder or easier to reach that zone. I loved it. I absolutely LOVED it. Even the Arnold Schwarzenegger looking men on it were dying.
More posts on DailyBurn as I do them.
How are all the baby bumps out there doing?
Do you use a HR monitor? I have mixed feelings on them because so many other factors go into determining your HR (temperature, weather, nutrition, etc.)
