6 months pregnant (26 weeks)
I forgot to take my belly shot this morning, but this is one we took a few night’s ago – I thought I should have one a bit more dolled up than the regular tracky dak ones.
My appetite is still huge. After I had breaky this morning, I did pilates, and then by 10am I was starving so I had a toasted avocado, ham and cheese sanga. Apparently that wasn’t enough so then I had some watermelon and a protein bar! I’ve really got a thing for watermelon lately, just loving it. And oranges still. Anything juicy.
Next week we start our anti natal classes! Then I have some blood tests and my sugar test on Friday, and the following week will be my next scan. I suppose I had better go and do some baby shopping soon and then also think about packing a hospital bag! Yikes, it’s getting scary!
My mum has been away for the last 7 weeks and so now she is back I will get together with her and my sis and go shopping for baby stuff. Mum last saw me at 19 weeks so I think she might notice a rather large difference!
Nadia is back from the US and so we have been back to our very early morning walks in the dark. I love getting it done and dusted before the day has even begun. We are going around to Nadia and Pete’s for dinner tomorrow night. Tonight we have visitors too, and the folks around on Sunday night. Plenty more eating opportunities coming up!
I’ve already planned in my head my attack as far as training and diet goes after I have bub. Of course, this is with me being as green as grass as to what motherhood will bring, but my plan is to be back in shape by my 42nd birthday (April). I am going to follow my own diet plan – the Body Blitz Blueprint Diet Plan – keep your eyes peeled for that one folks, it will be released in the next month or so!
The first 6 weeks will be getting to know bub, and just getting into a routine and letting my body heal. Of course it will depend on what sort of birth I have too as to how quickly I can get back to being active. I’m happy to just include walking within the first six weeks anyway. It’s more the diet I am keen to get back on track with. I may not be able to breastfeed so I may not get the additional help from that as far as welght loss goes.
Training will start just before Christmas with a bit of a conditioning program, and early in the new year I will get into proper traning, and will then change my diet to the other new one I will be releasing (am very excited about this one – it’s very different).
So, that’s it in a nutshell. Still trundling away. 14 weeks to go if we last the distance!
