WEEK + DAY: week 35 day 0
WEIGHT GAIN: 25 pounds! curious how much he weighs. will find out at our next appointment!
SYMPTOMS: sciatica is still keeping me up at night. I'm officially at the point where it's uncomfortable to sleep & not being able to breathe well isn't helping either. on the bright side, my swelling is under control & i'm still wearing my wedding rings :)
FOOD CRAVINGS: anything sounds good at this point lol. trying really hard to keep things under control!
FOOD AVERSIONS: nada.
EXERCISE: trying to give myself some grace, but it's been so hard making an effort to go to the gym. if i make it 3-4x a week, i'm happy! walking at a 5.0 incline // 3.0 speed for 45-60 min. light weight training includes stability ball exercises such as push-ups & pelvic tilts.
NEW DISCOVERY: yikes, nothing to report on.
FAVORITE BABY PURCHASES: my checklist is dwindling down. still have a few things from my registry that I need to buy, but they can wait until later...also we are slowly running out of storage in the nursery, ha!
FAVORITE MAMA PURCHASES: been researching postnatal belly bands & have decided to go with the bamboo Belly Bandit. have heard from multiple sources this is a great way to kick start getting things back into place. looking forward to seeing how quickly it helps. it's all packed & ready in my hospital bag -- will share my personal checklist soon :)
hope you had a wonderful christmas! (left) us at the SF ballet for the nutcracker with family (middle & right) i turned my cravings into gifts making sea salt dark chocolate bark with almonds, hazelnut & figs. had fun with simple packaging. so easy & fun!
