Pregnancy: Weeks 17-20 with a Weekly Workout Recap!
Weight Gained: At 16 weeks I had gained 8 lbs. 17 wks +0 lb, 18 wks + 1lb , 19 wks + 1 lb and by 20 weeks I gained 11 lbs total.
Symptoms: My boobs aren’t sore anymore but they are huge! I always thought I’d want a boob job after having kids (since I hear it can make them saggy) but I’m seriously considering otherwise now, haha. Sleeping has become a guessing game. Some nights are great, while others suck. Something that’s been consistently bad through out my entire pregnancy is my facial skin- a wives tail sign of a girl pregnancy. I break out more easily and my skin is super oily now. Good thing I have oil removing tissues at my disposal 😉
Food Cravings/Aversions: Nothing in particular. Anything and everything sounds good. I guess I’ve been leaning more towards sweet stuff (typical girl pregnancy right there) but I think it because that’s what’s around more. People don’t leave pizza’s in the break room (I wish), they leave cookies and cake and sweet stuff. Speaking of which, I had to REALLY keep myself from buying Nutella at the store the other day. That would just be bad. Misc: I bought more maternity clothes off of a swap n shop Facebook group. Got 3 pairs of work pants and 3 jeans for $35! I might eventually invest in some more expensive pieces, but I’m so cheap, I love a good deal 🙂
Workouts: I can finally do a weekly workout update!
Mon– Weights at home, 2m walk on treadmill
Tues– 4m on treadmill @ 9:10 pace
Wed– 4m on tread@ 9:00 pace
Thurs– Weights at home, 2 m walk on tread
Fri– 4m on tread @ 8:47 pace

I was SO PUMPED to do Body Pump! It was the first time I’ve done it in about 6 months! I’ve been trying to incorporate some weights at home before I threw myself into an hour long weight lifting class and that seemed to help. I ended up doing about half the weight I usually do, didn’t use weights on the leg tracks and modified the abs. I was rocking the baby bump and had a great class! And that’s my update folks! Hope everyone had a great weekend 🙂
What’s the last thing you craved?
