How far along: 31 weeks
How big is baby: Apparently pineapple? Don’t know if that’s weight or height, or if it includes the green spike-ys or what.
Best moment of the week: I kind of feel like Scott would be upset if I didn’t say our anniversary. Granted, I’m writing this up a little early so we can actually celebrate our anniversary, but if I say it will be good, it will be good, right?
Food cravings: Nothing crazy. I want Pizza Pops but who doesn’t immediately want to dig into a box when they buy it?
Symptoms: The heat is getting to me. Especially since our air conditioner died Friday night. We hit about 40 / 104 degrees on Saturday, factoring in humidity. I suddenly understand where the term “Melt Down” came from. Fortunately, the a/c was fixed by Monday evening. Phew.
Gender: Starting to feel that swing toward a girl… yup… it’s been almost 8 weeks at boy…
What I’m looking forward to: Doctor’s appointment on Thursday. It’s sad that I consider going to the doctor almost akin to vacation, but at this time of year, I’m run off my feet.
What I miss: The treadmill. After weeks of going to the gym at lunch, having my hips seize up partway through the afternoon, and being a lump of potato on the couch, I decided maybe I shouldn’t be running a mile on a treadmill at 7 months pregnant. I switched over to the AMT (adaptive motion trainer), and while it is a closely related cousin to the elliptical, I was at least pleasantly surprised at how challenging of a work out it was, and then surprised again the next day when I still had full use of my body. Hmmm maybe I should have made the switch much earlier…. Now there’s only one AMT at our gym so we’ll see if I keep lucking out and getting it. But running? Running still has my heart….
