This is the last 6 miles of the marathon right here: the third trimester. I tend to have my babies early, so I’ve got about 9 or 10 weeks left until we meet this baby boy!
I don’t really have too much to add here for this week other than I’ve noticed an increase in practice contractions which is pretty typical for me. I know the difference between practice ones and the real deal and I’m being careful to stay on the safe side of things.
I gained about a pound and a half last week which brings me up to 136lb for a total of 13-16lb. I can definitely feel the baby growing as he’s taking over not only my body but my sleep and my digestive system. I can’t count how many times I’ve barfed in my mouth while bending over to pick something up. Super sexy.
I’ve been craving feta cheese like crazy. I go through about 3 of those Kraft bags of seasoned feta bits per week. I just open it up and eat it with a soup spoon. Yes, the cheese is pasturized. I’m also on an overnight oatmeal kick, mostly because I can eat it late at night or in the middle of the night and even if I have indigestion, it’s pretty neutral-tasting so it’s not super acidic coming up. Ha ha! I dump some old fashioned oats into a container, add a bunch of chia seeds, a scoop of strawberry protein powder and then drown it all in unsweetened vanilla almond milk. The next day, I scoop it into a bowl, sprinkle milk chocolate chips on top and heat it up in the microwave for a minute. It’s everything. Oh, sometimes I’ll add some raspberries or something to it too. You guys gotta try it.
Running is going well, but more details can be found on my Mileage Monday post.
I think that’s it!
Do you guys have any questions? I feel like I’ve done this so many times that I’m missing a lot of info that I just assume everyone knows.
