Baby Stuff // 4

Baby Stuff

The other day I asked the husb to help me notice any time I groan or sigh while I’m moving around. For some reason, now that I’m getting larger, I have all of these sounds happening! Like a big groan whenever I get up off the couch, as if I just ran a marathon and someone is asking me to go run another one. It’s crazy! There’s no good reason for it. But that’s what’s happening. So this week’s project is to try to nip it and nip it good. (Have y’all ever been pregnant? Was there a point where moving around was easier if you could narrate your every move with grunts and sighs? I feel like a cavewoman.)

Anyway! How’s that for a radical start to your Monday? Hope you’re all thoroughly disgusted and can now go about your day feeling really good about yourselves because you can function like normal people.

Here’s more! xoxo

WEEK 26.

EATING salad. I swear it makes my hands less puffy.

DRINKING oh geez, this one’s boring. I’m taking it off next time. More water than I care to talk about. (What should I replace this with?)

READING ummmm the Harry Potter books while I’m at the gym? Haha, we took a little baby book break.

WANTING my abdominal muscles back.

SLEEPING soundly until 5 am every day, at which time my bladder is screaming at me.

WEARING stripes all the time! What is it about maternity clothes and stripes?!

FEELING a little freaked out at the prospect of actually raising a child.

LOVING that I’m still hitting the gym 5 or 6 times a week. It’s one of the things that makes me feel best.

  1. Nice job on hitting the gym!!
    I made strawberry/basil water yesterday and it was kind of the balls. I just cut up a bunch of berries and ripped the basil off the stem and shoved it all in a pitcher. AWESOMMMMME!

  2. Looking so cute in your stripes, Chels. It’s hard to imagine that you’re already 26 weeks along. It’s flying by!

  3. I know drinking water is beyond boring! I tried carbonated flavor water. I don’t really like it but it’s different. Recently I’ve been waking up at 5am to use the bathroom and then just lay around in bed until I have to work. It’s exhausting .

  4. Our first is 2 now but we’re trying again so memories are big on my list now from the first. I drank a lot of water, watered-down juices or sparkling water with some flavored syrup. And milk is good for you, too! Yes to lots of grunting but I tried to keep it to myself. You look beautiful!

  6. I have to agree with Marlana! flavored water was the best while I was pregnant, and I still love to keep it on hand. Watermelon with rosemary or cucumber with mint are my favorites.

  7. Oh, I had to laugh. I’m 34 weeks now and can completely relate to the new sounds that pop out of me every time I move. And it’s only gotten worse as I’ve gotten bigger. Hubby often asks me what’s wrong because I’m sighing all the time and then I just have to remind him that it’s not really a sigh, but just me trying to get some more oxygen into me poor cramped lungs. Aah, the joys.

    You look amazing by the way. Way to keep it super stylish while growing that little baba.

  8. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, wonderful blog!
