23 weeks!

Hello friends!

Here we are at 23 week (16 more weeks to go!), and I am getting more and more excited every day!

IMG_6808Man my hair is getting long; I think I need a haircut! Finding time for a haircut is pretty much impossible nowadays. I feel enormous, already. I think my belly last time if finally catching up with this time, either that or I had eaten a lot before the last picture.

23 WeeksI just have to keep telling myself that she is bigger than Liam was at this stage. I haven’t weighed myself in a while, but I think at this point I’ve gained about 10-15 lbs since the start of my pregnancy. Not too bad, although I wish I had started this pregnancy at a decent weight. It just means I have to work harder after she is born to get back down to my happy weight. I tried to do that last time and failed miserably, but I have a greater drive this time around to get back in shape.

IMG_6810I also tried to document my weight loss last time, and was completely discouraged. I hope to document it this time around, but actually use it as motivation for getting back into shape. I really do miss working out and being fit, I feel like I can barely walk up stairs at this point without being a little out of breath.

I know I can do it, I might need a little push from my hubby, family and friends, but I know I will be successful! Other than feeling like a blimp, I can’t really complain, I’ve been feeling pretty good.

IMG_6811My heartburn is slowly coming back, but it is still manageable with tums so I haven’t started taking zantac yet. My hips are getting better, not really sure why, maybe she is repositioning herself in there making it more balanced. Who knows but whatever it is I am grateful for it.

Alright well I think that is all I have for you today!
