I ate a Salad!!

Okay so that is a totally dumb title for this post but I did! I ate a Salad for dinner tonight! And it wasn't a Cafe Rio salad. Haha It had veggies and good stuff in it. I felt guilty because Jordan bought a whole thing of lettuce for me to use and it was about to go bad so I had to use it. It wasn't a bad salad though! I'm super proud of myself. Ever since being prego anything veggie and green was a total turn off to me. I use to eat salads and veggies all the time. That was 60% of my diet! I'm getting my normal eating habits back again. At least I'm gonna try and start eating the way I should. I've def had my moments where all I eat are carbs. Oh well once this baby comes out it is totally back to business!

Anyway I just wanted to tell everyone that I ate a salad today! haha I'm sure a dork. No one is going to care at I guess you can just skip this post.

Baby Update-I went to the doctor on Wednesday and he is doing great! Heart Beat was 150. I asked her about the exercising and making sure I am not hurting myself or the baby. She said everything is good. As long as I'm not feeling pain I am A OKAY! I was relieved to hear that. I am taking it easier than ever but I am happy that I am still able to exercise and have not had any complications with my pregnancy! Only 12 and a half more weeks! So exciting! And so not ready. Well mentally I'm ready (as ready as I can be...) Physically like having all the stuff I need for him soooo not ready! haha But I will get there!

And its FRIDAY!!! Yayy Yayyy Happy Friday Everyone! Do something fun this weekend!

Growing Belly

These two pictures were taken on Sunday. I was 26 weeks and 5 days. People still tell me I'm really small but I do not feel that way. I have notice that some things are a lot harder. Like bending over! haha In my step class tonight we were stretching and when I went down to stretch my hamstring it like hurt! I was thinking wow that's I didn't do it.

Last week I took my Glucose test. And...I Passed! Yay no gestational diabetes for me! whop whop. I am low on iron though so I have to take an iron supplement. I thought I eat a lot of meat but I guess I am not. A trip to target will fix that though.

Some ladies at work have kinda scared me a little bit. They were like are you allowed to do jumping jacks? Can you still teach. You shouldn't do blah blah blah...So Wednesday at my check up I will be making sure I am not harming my baby or myself. I don't want to go into labor because I was exercising. I know I'm not suppose to twist and do ab work so we will see. I mean I know my body and I know when I am pushing it too much. I guess because this is my first child I just want to make sure I am doing everything right. I know I am suppose to exercise but If my step class, hi lo class, and body sculpt are too much then I don't want to hurt my little guy. He needs to grow and become strong. Can't have him coming to early! I read that 30 minutes after you work out you are suppose to feel then kick a few times. But I don't know how true that is cause I can feel him kick most of the day but not too much RIGHT after I work out. I think I am over analyzing this.

Anyway I also went to a baby bazaar on Saturday. It was good but I didn't get anything. Nothing really caught my eye. But they have it again in September so I will probably stop by again and take a looksey around.

Things I'm Lovin Right Now

I have been looking online lately at baby stuff. We haven't picked out most of our big stuff yet, like a stroller, carseat, and oh yeah What the room will look like. We will be moving to a bigger apartment so I can't actually start decorating a room for him until then. But looking online to get ideas is always fun. There are some extravagant nursery rooms out there. I mean they are babies they don't even care. I like the more simple look, but still very cute. And here are some other thing that I have my eye on.

I love this diaper bag. My big sis has this brand of diaper bag and it just seems so much cooler than all the others. Probably because she has it :) I really like this print though!

We already got a snug rider for the carseat to go into for a quick easy stroller. And its greco brand so I need to get a greco car seat. I thought this was cute. I mean I really haven't looked to hard at carseats, the more I look I dunno if I like it as much anymore.

I really want a jogger too. They are so cool! I probably won't be getting this one. It's a B.O.B and I dunno if Jordan will let me. Maybe I can find someone selling one in good condition still!

Okay I thought these Owls were so cute. haha They are little pictures you hang. Maybe I can decorat a room around these owls. Who know? haha but I just like them.

This weekend there is a Baby Bazarr and I think I might go. It's a big flea market of baby stuff. People sell used/new things. I think it would be fun to go and see what deals I can get! If the weather is good I think I might stop by and see how it is.

Thursday, May 5, 2011 this the beginning?

Last night was the first night since I have been pregnant that I could just not get comfortable!! It was so annoying! All I wanted to do was lay on my stomach but when I did that it really wasn't that comfortable because there is a baby there, and it made me have to go to the bathroom. Did I mention that my body was super duper achy all over too. I taught a step class earlier that night and my hips, feet, and legs just felt so tired. Is this the beginning of the upcoming 15 weeks? And the best thing about all of this is our little guy was moving around so much! He likes to dance or box or something...maybe a soccer player? Or a gymnast. Or maybe he is just really hyper. haha I dunno but I love love love it!!! Other than only getting about 5 hours of sleep It was fun to feel him move around most of the night.

On to other things. I'm finally getting my hair done today. Nothing big just a clean up. It has gotten so long within the past few months. It will probably look the same haha but still it is just fun to have someone cut and style your hair. Even if it's nothing drastic.

Tomorrow=FRIDAY! and I have to re certify for my First Aid and CPR/AED for work. I should probably look over those manuals before I look silly in front of all my co-workers. Don't worry we aren't doing the exam at 6:30am!! At least I get to do it while I'm working. That was nice of them to let me work and re certify while everyone else has to go to work after the class. I'm killing two birds with one stone! Yippee!

And I am almost in my 3rd trimester! Crazy! Some girl at work yesterday was telling me how easy labor is. She was going off on how she only had to push 6 times and she was only in labor for a few hours. She was all its not hard at all. I was like um okay but you do realize that it's not like that for everyone right? I mean I really hope I can come out of this and say oh yeah that was super easy. But I feel that I need to be somewhat prepared for the pain I will have to endure. I mean c'mon I'm the one who use to get stomach aches everynight and growing pains when I was younger (not that they did much. I'm only 5'1) and cry about it! I just smiled at this lady and told her thanks for making me feel better. I love how many people have told me their labor stories also. I mean they just tell me, I don't ask or anything. One lady delivered in her car! YIKES!
