This week, I hit the halfway (!) point of my pregnancy. 20 down, 20 to go.
I continue to be blessed in having a fairly easy pregnancy, with fatigue being the biggest change (my husband would attest to my falling asleep by 8:30 on the couch, most nights). My FitBit confirms a solid 8+ hours each night, consistently over the past week.
We’ve also seen this sweet face via ultrasound and I’ve felt him kicking a few times.
We’ve decided that he’ll be named after my father & my husband. Two of the most important men in my life and also two of the most incredible men on the face of this Earth. So no pressure, Baby Ricks. You have a lot to live up to, with these 2 namesakes.
Size of the baby (per ‘What to Expect’): mango
Weight gain: On track
Cravings: Pizza & ice cream – in other words, nothing new or unusual to this pregnancy 🙂
New symptoms: heartburn & round ligament pain
Exercise: still continuing my weekly routine, which is a mix of running, Pilates/barre, yoga, Zumba, Flywheel and sometimes a strength/conditioning workout like a bootcamp or Orange Theory. I don’t push myself too hard and instead focus on working out for the baby’s health, not overall fitness.
What I’m looking forward to: some upcoming family weekends
