How have you been feeling?
Pretty good, I think, considering all the travel I’ve been doing. I’ve been away from home more often than ever these last few weeks and that really has made me homesick and physically exhausted. All the walking, sight seeing, time zone changes and jet lag have taken their toll. I’m so glad I get to be home and stay home for a few more weeks before I leave again for yet another trip. It’ll most likely be my last for a long while…and I’m super happy about that! I think all the walking has made my round ligament pain and my ankle swelling worse than usual, but I’m hoping everything returns back to normal soon 🙂
Um, I don’t want to talk about it. Actually, I haven’t had a scale to weigh myself soooooo, that’s good? I go to the doctor tomorrow to see what kind of damage all those macarons and croissants I ate in Paris have done.
Exercise? Yay or Nay?
On average I’ve walked 5-6 miles daily with all this travel. The most was nearly 11 miles! Besides that, I haven’t been to the gym. I’ve been too tired. Zzzzzzzzzzz.
No cravings to report for these last few weeks. Probably because I was traveling and eating all the things. I remember craving ice water and cold soda a few times. Does that count?
Ohhhh yessss! Like crazy! And this baby is getting so strong! Gordon and I can feel his movements from the outside regularly and a few friends have commented that they can see the little kicks and punches from the outside. So exciting. Apparently baby is 1 1/3 pounds and the size of an ear of corn. I also think this baby is transverse in my belly, but the doctor will tell me all that tomorrow, I think.
Other Miscellaneous Thoughts:
The name game still is haunting me….not sure what to call this little dude and not getting any closer.
I’m relieved that I don’t have to travel very much any more! It was pretty taxing on my body. Also, I missed my family like crazy! Beyond day 4, I was ready to pack up and go home.
I’m still working through the jet lag. I can’t seem to keep my eyes open past 8pm and tend to wake up around 5 am. Still trying to change those hours a bit because I’m missing out on some quiet time with the husband.
Beyond that, I’m not sure there’s much else to report! I’m healthy and happy and things are just moving along 🙂 Yay baby!
