I am 6 months (or 24 weeks) prego today!
It's so hard to believe I will be in my 3rd trimester in just two short weeks. Just crazy how time flies!
Baby Emma is steadily growing, moving more and more each week. And momma is starting to feel the aches and pains of pregnancy! I've had a difficult time sleeping the past couple weeks due to leg pains and cramping. I got leg cramps here and there before pregnancy, so they weren't new to me. They just happen more often now, and man does it make for a rough night of sleep! I drink lots of water, eat bananas, and walk around throughout the day to try and increase blood flow. Is there anything else that you mommas out there would recommend to help?
For the past couple months, my husband has really made exercise a priority in his life. He says he wanted to start getting in shape now to be around longer for Emma and I, and also to just have a better quality of life. How sweet :-) It's had me thinking about how I am going to lose this baby weight once she arrives, as well. I want to be able to get around easily with her; to play and have fun without getting out of breath every 5 minutes! Plus, we want to promote a healthy lifestyle to Emma so she is encouraged to live healthy as she gets older and makes her own choices. Any suggestions on the best way to start an exercise regiment after our baby is born - types of exercises, how to juggle an already busy schedule with working out, etc.?
Your help/answers to my questions would be awesome and much appreciated!
I'll leave you today with some recent pics of the prego belly ;-)
Can you tell I like polka dots?? hehe.
