2 pounds. 12 ounces.
That’s how heavy (or light) the little guy inside of me is.
According to this morning’s sonogram.
28 weeks. Only 12 weeks more. They call this the third trimester. It’s supposed to be the most challenging of the trimesters. It’s supposed to be uncomfortable and wearisome. It’s supposed to be painful and stressful. Or so they say.
The first two trimesters were probably the easiest things I’ve ever lived through. After two challenging years of living in the Dominican, being pregnant in America has been a breeze. So I guess, I’m a little nervous and excited about this next stretch. But I don’t think it’s anything I can’t handle.
I keep exercising regularly. I lift weights about 4 times a week. (Don’t worry, nothing too heavy.) I keep doing squats. I keep running. I try to run at least 2 miles every time I go. I keep doing HIIT training. So far, my body has felt great.
Two negative things?
- I’m sleepy a lot more often now. I just want to close my eyes and sleep right now and it’s not even 7pm. I wish I had more energy to be awake late at night and watch movies with my hubby or hang out with friends. Although, I did survive a late Rangers game last week! Didn’t leave the stadium till after 10:30! What a winner.
- I’m hungry about 85% of the time. I just want to eat. I wake up to eat. I live to snack. I suppress the hunger by drinking tons of water so I still pee every 30-45 minutes. After dinner, all I can think about is breakfast. This is my life now. Was I this hungry before pregnancy?? Are you this hungry??? What was it like before???
That’s it. I’m happy.
Oh wait. Before pregnancy, my entire amazing life, ONIONS NEVER MADE ME CRY. Ever. I was the designated onion-cutter, cause I could rock those onions without blinking.
Now. Now. I feel what ALL OF YOU felt….. COMBINED. Yesterday, I couldn’t handle it after 10 seconds of cutting into an onion. My eyes went craaaazy!! Oh well. I love onions. Looks like I’m going to have to take a break from onions for a while. I’ll let y’all know how that goes. 😉
