So baby is the size of a grapefuit/bunch of grapes. I really am not understanding how these fruit/veggie sizes work, but whatever!
It’s a much better week for AM and I, and in fact, we went to Target yesterday and he was giddy with excitement over buying the baby’s first set of clothes. He intends to buy the baby something every week, and it makes him so very happy!
So last week I was going to head up to NJ to clear my head for a few days, but I ended up not doing that. I’m glad I didn’t, because things worked itself out, and because I didn’t want to miss the gym (haha!) it’s true though! I’m going to try to stick to my five-times a week gym routine until the baby comes because I’m not really sure what my gym life will look like when the baby is here. I’ve already talked to AM about heading back to the gym three days a week after the baby is born, but I’m really not sure when that will be.
Anywho! So the baby is continuing to move a ton, which is great. And today, I went to my first prenatal group (with a bunch of other women who are due in June like me). It was interesting, and at first I was really really uncomfortable. AM didn’t come with me because I wasn’t sure if men were allowed, but there were two men there, so he’s going to start coming with me from now on. I wasn’t sure I really vibed with the women, but…it was great because I really felt it was a space where all of my questions could be answered.
Also….super excited that I’m back into the juicing game!
I love me some green juice because I am not going to eat the amount of veggies and fruits that I can juice. As for the pulp, you can compost it or add it to smoothies! I know it’s time-consuming, but I look at it as a little luxurious self-caring for myself! I also recommend a masticating juicer, like this one from Omega, because then I juice every two or three days, and store the juice in an airtight container in the fridge!
Oh! We are officially in our six month now! Pregnancy math is so weird and confusing, but apparently weeks 23-27 are all month six. Crazy how fast this time is going by. My body feels a ton more achy now that it did before, especially the round ligament pain (all over my belly) and my pubic bone, which is unfortunately something many women deal with during pregnancy, especially women who lift weights.
Anywho…onward to week 24!!
