Second Trimester – Week 17 and 18

Week 17:

Baby: Size of a pomegranate

Fitness: Only did 1 day of strength training, but upped my running this week. I was even able to run at my friend Lauren’s house in Skagit County. It was a WONDERFUL run in the refreshing rain. Total miles for the week= 20.58

Weight Gain: Only gained a pound this week. Up +17 to date.

Food Cravings: Mexican food! Allllll of the mexican food!

Food Aversions: Anything overly fried – onion rings, etc.

Symptoms: Just a little hip and back soreness. But that may have been from traveling to Washington to see friends for the Anacortes Wine Festival. Designated driver for the win!

From the Wine Festival: Their shirts say “Shit’s about to get fancy,” and mine says “Shit already got fancy.” It was a hit with the crowd at the festival!

Week 18:

Baby: Size of a sweet potato

Fitness: Totally flaked on strength this week. But I DID manage to keep my miles pretty consistent. I ran 5 out of 7 days this week. Total miles for the week: 18.88

Weight Gain: Up another 2 pounds this week. 😦 Total of +20 for the pregnancy. Not too happy, but I DID eat a lot of fast food this week (don’t judge…).

Food Cravings: Taco Bell. Popsicles. Cereal (Kix, specifically….)

Food Aversions: Nothing. I want to eat everything. 😦

Symptoms: My abdomen muscles feel like they’re tearing apart just below my sternum. Is this normal? I also have had a LOT of upper back pain… I am constantly uncomfortable and have to shift around from sitting to standing to laying down. And naps. I have taken a nap almost every day this week. Ooh, last one – I’m back to drooling! I know it’s gross, but I had the same symptom during my pregnancy with P.
