28 weeks! Hello 3rd Trimester!

Happy Friday!  Oh I am so happy that it’s Friday! I start looking forward to the weekends on Wednesday!  It’s hard to believe that the final trimester is here!  I’m hoping it goes quickly but I have a feeling January might drag a little bit… we will see!

How far along:  28 weeks


Due Date:  February 13, 2015

Total weight gain: 15 pounds

Maternity clothes: Most of the time!  Maternity leggings are my favorite!  Plus I am loving my new workout gear from For Two Fitness  Hint Hint:  Giveaway coming soon!!!


Sleep:  It’s actually been pretty good these last couple of weeks.  I’m still up a couple of times of night but this week I have been forgoing the 5am workouts to sleep in the extra hour.  I get in bed around 9pm too!  I’m exhausted!

Exercise: Prior to getting sick this week I was doing well with 70/30 for walking/running. I have also been mixing in weight training as well.  I’ve taken a few days off to let my body heal.   Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things this weekend.

Miss anything:  Still major issues with sitting and driving.  I started PT this week which is helping a bit.  Hoping some new stretches will provide me with some relief. I’ve also got a prenatal massage next weekend that I am very much looking forward to!

Movement: All the time…! Sometimes I wonder what that baby is doing in there!  I’d give anything for the baby to shift positions right now and get his/her head out of my rib cage!  That’s been pretty painful.

Food cravings:  I haven’t been too hungry this week but I’m still loving my celery and this week Sara and I have been going crazy on the clementines!  They are soooo good!  Last week I was having major ice cream cravings.  Not frozen yogurt…. the real full fat good stuff 🙂

Anything making you queasy or sick: Coffee… it’s been months since I have had some but I am struggling in the morning with the smell in my house.

Belly Button – in or out?  Depends on what time of day– I’d say it’s pretty much out right now.

Wedding Rings – on or off? On!

Happy or Moody? Happy…. for the most part.  I guess except the slightly emotional crying fest I had last night towards the end of the day which was likely brought on by being so tired and working a long day!  It happens…. right?!?!

Gender:  It’s going to be a big surprise but everyone tells me they think I am having a boy.  Of course everyone said the same thing when I was pregnant with Sara.

Anything Else:  While everyone around me is cold and freezing and I am hot!  Yesterday I walked outside a few times without a coat just to cool off.  People all around me are bundling up and I am driving around with my windows down!  Hello hormones!

Looking Forward To:  SO MUCH!!  Next week is Thanksgiving and we are all off starting Tuesday at the end of the day! Next Friday the Hubs and I leave for spa weekend getaway in Wisconsin!  So freaking excited for that!!  I can’t believe it’s almost December!  Lots of exciting things in the coming weeks.  Plus the hubs and I have date night this weekend!  Trying to fit in some extra date nights right now.

So what do you have going on this weekend? Did you slow down your workouts in final stretch?

    You look awesome – love that sweater dress!!!
    Hope you are feeling much better.
    I would gladly take some of the heat you are feeling now – I feel like I haven’t been warm in days.

  6. You look so cute! So you do intervals of 70% walking, 30% running? What speed do you go at? I’m liking the intervals of run/walk, but I’m going much slower these days!

    And I can’t wait for the giveaway!!!! (I tried filling out a form on their website to do a review and haven’t heard back yet..bummer!)

      It takes A LONG time to hear back! I am sure you will!
      So when I walk- I do a speed a 4.0 and inclines between 4.5 and 7.0. I walk anywhere from 10-15 minutes and then jog between 5.0 and 5.8 for about 5-7 minutes. I spend anywhere from 30-40 minutes on the treadmill pending the morning.

    Looking good, Laura!! Hope you are feeling better! I was able to sustain my workouts throughout…I was actually at the Y doing a kettle bell workout the day Skylar was born! Lol. Running got hard because I just had to pee all the time so I switched to more swimming…which felt glorious! Enjoy that massage
