BABY UPDATE

Little guy still feels really low, and I feel most of his movements waaaaaay down there...like as low as physically possible (if you know what I'm sayin). He's also moving a TON again, so I guess he's not running out of room like I originally thought? He was just being a lazy bum last week, I suppose. His favourite time to practice karate seems to be in the middle of the night. His sudden "heeee-yaaahs" at 4am sure scare me half to death.

I think I felt him hiccup for the first time this week (or at least recognized them). At first I figured he was just kicking to a very strict beat haha, but then it occurred to me that they were probably hiccups and he's prooobably not going to be that musically inclined.

SYMPTOMS

These past couple of days I've had what feels like a pinched nerve in my back. It happened with Piper too, and it's a real treat to have it again! My hips also get achy at night time as my ligaments are all loosening up to accommodate baby. For whatever reason, my stomach doesn't feel as squished right now, so I've been able to eat a little more (errr, quite a bit more actually), so I'm still snacking and eating pretty much all day. Hopefully baby boy has some cute rolls at the end of this, because I know I will!

FOOD CRAVINGS

Chocolate! Every time I go to the grocery store, a bag of halloween chocolate makes its way into my cart. EVERY DANG TIME! I've been good and always end putting them back before I make it to check out, because I know I'll end up eating them all, and I KNOW it'll make me sick. Instead, I've been making lots of healthy treats with JoJo's chocolate bark, and it's been so satisfying and tasty!

WORKOUTS

Workouts last week were good thanks to the little week-of-workouts challenge I did (you can still get them all HERE). I've being doing lots of walking outside, resistance training, HIITs, and walking on the treadmill at the highest incline. I think my workouts will be a lot of prenatal yoga, and light resistance training this week because of that nerve pain, but I'll still be logging all my workouts (I started at 14 weeks of pregnancy) HEREand linking them to any Instagram workouts I post too!
