Bump update: Week 5

So here it is.  The start of my pregnancy posts for Baby #3.  Given that I had a miscarriage a couple of months ago (Baby #2), I’m taking a personal risk starting these posts so early, but what is life without risk?  No, on a more honest note I just think it will be interesting to compare the different stages of pregnancy and to see the changes that I’ll be going through.

I wasn’t too sure of the best way to document this as it needs to be something that is not going to require too much effort on my part, so I figure a quick list of preggo specific updates and a bump pic.  Or chubby tummy pic as per the below 😦

I’ve have calculated my due date to be 22 March 2017, so that puts me at 5 weeks up the duff as of today.  Pretty much have ages to go until Baby #3 is here… le sigh.

P.S: Bit of a disclaimer, I totally hijacked this list from Diary of a Fit Mommywho I found on Pinterest during my first pregnancy.  She is my fit pregnancy inspiration!

Sorry for the crappy photo, I was trying to rush before my son ran into the pic! 

Symptoms: Nausea, tiredness (not quite at the fatigue stage just yet, but I feel it brewing), hip aches & pains, breathlessness, dizziness, bloating, general emotional instability.. :(. Oh, and extreme thirst!  I wake up 2-3 times a night because I’m super parched and need a drink.  I’m also waking up 2-3 times a night to pee because of all the water I’m drinking.  Given how early on in the pregnancy I am, I’m surprised at how quickly all these symptoms have hit me this time round.  As long as they don’t stick around I guess.

Total weight gain: -600gms.  I’ve actually lost weight since I found out last week and I’m hoping to lose another couple of kilos before I start to show.  Definitely obtainable.  I should probably state that my starting weight is 64.7kg.

Maternity Clothes: No.

Stretch marks? No new ones.

Workouts: Still continuing with the Ashy Bines Booty Challenge for the rest of July and then will start on something more specific to what I will need in the future.  Time to draw up another plan 😀

Diet: As always, needs improvement.

Food cravings: Nothing in particular.  I actually feel like I’m losing my appetite more that anything.  I am also getting fuller on less which I’m attributing to the bloating.

Gender: Unknown yet, and no intuitive inklings yet either.

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: Currently a good mix of both.  I am extra sensitive though, so a lot of things can easily get me fired up, or bursting into tears.  Take your pick.
