Foodie Friday And Pregnancy Pains (End Of The 2nd Trimester)

Hi, all! Well, I’m less than a week away from my 3rd trimester, which is crazy! It is officially a struggle due to some terrible back pain. I tried on the dress for my baby shower today and just can’t believe how much my belly is growing.

STRUGGLES:

*Baby girl is potentially laying on a nerve and it hurts to even walk. This makes work tough, but I have my amazing work bestie who helps me out all the time.

*Leg cramps: they come in the middle of the night and are excruciating.

*Continued acne and redness on my face.

*Hungry ALL the time….like so hungry haha

Pregnancy is hard as it is beautiful. I do love my growing belly and have SO much to be greatful for.

THANKFULNESS:

*Baby kicks: they literally are amazing.

*A healthy, growing baby girl.

*A husband that rubs out cramps in the middle of the night and helps me put my shoes on in the morning.

THIS WEEK IN FOOD:

Pasta, turkey meatballs, and toast.

Taco salad with coconut oil fried plantain.

Veggie burger (I had 2) and corn.

My hash/stew that was delicious! It had chunks of turkey, coconut oil fried sweet potatoes, onions, mushrooms, and a can of cream of mushroom soup. YUMMMM!

My bowl with toast. I love healthier comfort food!

THIS WEEK IN FITNESS:

I have done super low impact this week due to my back pain. I want to stay active and healthy, yet listen to my body and take it easy.

MONDAY: I took an upper body workout class at my gym. I avoided the cardio they did, but still lifted a little.

TUESDAY: I went for a swim which felt good to get cardio without impact.

WEDNESDAY: Pure barre video

THURSDAY: I did the stationary bike, then stretched out.

FRIDAY: A short pure barre video

This upcoming weekend will be busy, but I’m excited for it!!! Tomorrow, we are heading to Cincinnati for my niece’s first birthday party. It is about a 2 hour drive each way so we will be gone most of the day.

Sunday is my baby shower!! Yay!

I hope you all have a great weekend! With love,

Carly
