Bump update: Week 10

IMAG0033

Baby stats: Baby is the size of a prune, or a lego man.  Baby can now swallow as well as kick and punch it’s little stubby limbs!

Symptoms: Nausea, bloating (big time!), and fatigue.  The nausea is the worst it’s been so far.

Total weight gain: -1.3kg. No change since last week.

Maternity clothes: Yes.  I’ve been wearing my maternity jeans lately because the bloat is making my usual jeans super uncomfortable.  It does make me laugh that I am already wearing maternity clothes.. lol.

Stretch marks? No new ones.

Workouts: I’ve only managed two walks in the last 7 days. The nausea has rendered me incapable of getting off the sofa.  I’m too scared to venture out incase I power chuck in public… not cool.

Diet: I’m eating less in terms of quantity, purely because most food makes me gag.  The only food I can genuinely stomach seems to be junk food.  I should be lapping this up, but I really do just want to eat salads and veggies😦

Food cravings: No cravings per se, but I can’t really stomach much at the moment so my diet currently consists of cheese toasties, fries, weetbix and chocolate.  Can’t really handle anything else.

Gender: Unknown yet, and no still no inklings.  Husband feels like it’s a boy, however I think he is more wishful thinking than anything intuitive.

Labor signs: Um, no….

Belly button in or out? In. My belly button never popped with my last full-term pregnancy, so I’m guessing it won’t this time round either.

Happy or moody most of the time: Emotionally better this week.  Just the nausea getting to me and keeping me hostage in my own home out of fair of public vomiting.. lol.

Bump update: Week 9

Sorry if the pic looks different, it’s a new phone🙂

Baby stats: Baby is the size of a green olive.  Fingers and toes are no longer webbed and the baby can now hiccup!

Symptoms: Nausea, bloating (big time!), fatigue and still with the extreme thirst.  Major emotional outbursts and breakdowns.

Total weight gain: -1.3kg. I’ve lost weight again, which mentally screws with my head as I know that my midsection is starting to thicken.  Weird.

Maternity clothes: Not wearing any no, but I did purchase a pair of maternity jeans!  I couldn’t help myself.  Shopping is shopping.

Stretch marks? No new ones.

Workouts: I’ve only managed a couple of walks and a HIIT workout in the last 7 days.  Again, I’ve allowed my emotions to get the better of me.

Diet: Back on the junk food wagon this week!!  I have been completely terrible, and I think I have only eaten one green thing (broccoli) for the entire past 7 days… eeek.

Food cravings: Junk food.  In spades.  Half of this is emotional eating no doubt, but I’m actually put off by my usual favourites and crips and chocolate seem to be the only things that don’t make me gag.  Stupid really.

Gender: Unknown yet, and no still no inklings.

Labor signs: Um, no….

Belly button in or out? In. My belly button never popped with my last full-term pregnancy, so I’m guessing it won’t this time round either.

Happy or moody most of the time: Very, very emotional this week.  Had a massive meltdown the other day which my poor toddler felt the brunt of, so I am actively taking steps to try and reduce any future possible meltdowns.  More exercise, more sleep, more sun and less junk food should do the trick.

Bump update: Week 8

The bloat is back…
Baby stats: Baby is the size of a raspberry, or a half lego brick.  All organs, muscles and nerves are beginning to function.. isn’t that crazy?

Symptoms: Nausea, bloating (big time!), fatigue and still with the extreme thirst.  Breathlessness is back.

Total weight gain: -800gm. I’ve gained 200gm since last week but I’m still less than what I started at.  Beginning to think that this is not going to last long from here on out.

Maternity clothes: No.

Stretch marks? No new ones.

Workouts: I’ve only managed two walks and two core and butt workouts in the last 7 days. I’ve allowed my emotions to get the better of me.

Diet: I’m eating less than I was last week, however it’s more junk food than nutrient dense stuff.  Again, I’ve allowed my emotions to win this week.

Food cravings: Chips! (or potato crisps, depending on where you are from).  Like I generally like chips, but I’ve been craving these like crazy.  Actually, junk food in general has been taking over the cravings.  I feel like my body just needs more energy so it’s craving foods that will give it the ‘quick hit’.

Gender: Unknown yet, and no still no inklings.

Labor signs: Um, no….

Belly button in or out? In. My belly button never popped with my last full-term pregnancy, so I’m guessing it won’t this time round either.

Happy or moody most of the time: Very emotional this week.  A lot happened, our little boy ended up in hospital over the weekend, I lost out on a business deal that I really, really wanted, and I’ve been eating shite, so nothing has really worked out for the last 7 days.  Here is hoping the next 7 are better!

Bump update: Week 7

Still just a food baby…

Baby stats: Baby is the size of a blueberry, or a playing die.  Little eyelids are forming as are the beginnings of fingers and toes!

Symptoms: Nausea, bloating and still with the extreme thirst.  Fatigue has also kicked in.

Total weight gain: -1kg. No change on last week surprisingly.

Maternity clothes: No.

Stretch marks? No new ones.

Workouts: I’ve managed a walk every other day, and I’ll do a core and butt workout every now and then, but nothing consistent.

Diet: Portions game has evened up a bit, but I’m not eating as healthy as I would like.

Food cravings: No cravings in particular, but foods I usually have an aversion to are starting to smell nice!  I go on and off with peanut butter, more off than on, but lately when I have it, it’s delicious!!  Also, I absolutely despise cucumber, but it’s been smelling attractive lately!  Not game enough to try it yet though.

Gender: Unknown yet, and no still no inklings.

Labor signs: Um, no….

Belly button in or out? In. My belly button never popped with my last full-term pregnancy, so I’m guessing it won’t this time round either.

Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty emotional this week :(  My husband has to remind me that I’m not psycho and that it’s the pregnancy hormones.  Doesn’t help really because I still feel like a really crazy person.

Bump update: Week 6

Let’s be honest, there is more food than baby in that tummy…

Baby stats: Baby is the size of a lentil, or a ladybug, but looks more like a tadpole.  The baby now has a beating heart!

Symptoms: Nausea, super-tiredness, breathlessness, bloating and still with the extreme thirst.  I’m also super hungry all the time.  This whole week has basically been one big binge.

Total weight gain: -1kg. Even though I’ve been eating like crazy, I’ve lost another few hundred grams!  Next week will no doubt be different.

Maternity clothes: No.

Stretch marks? No new ones.

Workouts: I’ve been so tired this week that I’ve used this as an excuse to not exercise, which I’m not proud of.  I’ve managed a FBW every other day so that’s something, but I can’t let this laziness take over my pregnancy!  Must not!

Diet: The food I’ve been eating has been pretty clean actually, but I just can’t seem to get enough of it!.  My portions game is weak.

Food cravings: Just food in general.

Gender: Unknown yet, and no still no inklings.

Labor signs: Um, no….

Belly button in or out? In. My belly button never popped with my last full-term pregnancy, so I’m guessing it won’t this time round either.

Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty good this week🙂  Although, I get cranky easily but I’m putting that down to being tired all the time.

Accountability Post Day 27

Saturday, 23 July

Exercise Goals:

Nothing planned for today, which is great because I didn’t do anything!

FBW (Fat burning walk): Yes!

Stretches: Yes.

Breakfast: Homemade baked beans with scrambled eggs and rye toast.  Delish!!

Lunch:  1/2 sausage.

Dinner: Couple of slices of Roast lamb.

Snacks: 1/2 banana bread.  3 glasses of soda water (Night out with one of my girls).

Coffee: No.

Chocolate: No.

Verdict: 5/10 – Fair to say I’ve given up on Ashy Bines Booty Challenge for this week.  I am constantly wiped out by lunch time that I don’t want to do anything. I actually had a two hour nap in the afternoon!  Those pregnancy hormones are starting to rear their ugly head already.
