I had my 20 week ultrasound yesterday and Mike and I were very excited to find out the sex of the baby. Unfortunately babe had other plans. I was a bit disappointed but now I am excited again. This pregnancy has gone by quite quickly and I am so glad that I can now say I am enjoying it. The baby has finally started to move which caused me great angst. I am feeling great and have had no hip issues like Zoe's pregnancy. I am in a great place!
I am also happy to say that I haven't gained weight yet. Woohoo! I have a slight hope that I will not gain anything this pregnancy. I am at the point where I will start gaining if I don't eat right or drink enough water. I find that I am typically up over the weekend and then down by midweek. Mike is going back to his diet's roots which is high protein and low/no carbs and I have asked him to help me to eat better. I just don't love protein right now and I don't like it or think of making it when I am hungry. Now exercise is another story, it has been a really busy month and I just haven't gotten into a good routine. I do need to tone up and work on my cardio.
A blogger friend of mine who is also pregnant has inspired me to get a good schedule going and she has raved how it has benefitted her and her kids. I have slowly started working on a schedule. My goal is to stop lazing around in my pj's all day, I don't really laze around but I just don't have the same motivation if I don't get dressed in the morning. This has been quite successful this week for us. Next week once the craziness of hosting an anniversary party for 50 guests is over I will work on getting outside more and doing more exercise. I bought the bike attachment for my chariot and I want to get that set up and start using it.
Well, I am off to bake several dozen cookies and a couple cakes today. I am not stressed by cooking for 50 people but it is only Wednesday and the party is Saturday. Wish me luck!
