They are growing right on track, thankfully!
16–17.5 lbs depending on the day! Right on track to hit at least 20 pounds by 20 weeks (my doc said she will be thrilled if it was more, even!)
I’ve DEFINITELY felt flutters, and cannot wait for the next few weeks as I know the movements will really be noticeable!
Honestly, I have NO complaints — my rib/back pain continues to bother me somewhat, but the last week has been much better overall. My chiropractor actually told me a rib had “popped out,” and it’s been much better since I started seeing her again. I plan to see her weekly throughout my pregnancy.
No real cravings lately, just enjoying any and all food! And, I have to say, my sister’s birthday cake this last weekend was AMAZING. I certainly treated myself to a piece multiple days — coconut cake with coconut filling and buttercream frosting?! Yes, please!
Coffee and alcohol still don’t sound good at all.
A sweet girl from a local Moms of Multiples group gifted us a double bassinet Pack n’ Play. We also purchased a Halo Bassinet Twin sleeper that I had heard AMAZING things about, yet I didn’t want to spend the price for a brand new one (they are NOT cheap). So, when I heard she was selling hers, I was ecstatic — it sure is making it seem more real!
I bought a new maternity dress for my upcoming national Beachbody Coaching conference in Indianapolis, and got a Stitch Fix box with a super cute 4th of July outfit I’m excited for! H! (The little things!)
If you haven't tried Stitch Fix before, you can USE THIS LINK and get $25 off your Stitch Fix order, they have AMAZING maternity outfits!
The last few weeks I have been doing a workout program, LIIFT4, that is so perfect for the busy woman during summer! It’s a mix of lifting and HIIT, which is one of my favorite ways to exercise. Best of all, it's just 4 days a week!
I’m also still swimming at least 1 day a week and cycling 1-2 days per week. Thankfully, I can do most things while pregnant, just substitute some of the traditional core moves for ones that are pregnancy safe.
However, a BRAND NEW program releases this month, and I decided to do VIP early access so I could try out the first 10 workouts! So, after I try those 10, I’ll mix in some of LIIFT4 (as it’s my favorite program), but I’ll commit 100% to Morning Meltdown 100 beginning July 29th, when the entire program officially releases.
Learning the genders of the babies! And, those ultrasounds are SO amazing. The detail is incredible, and I’m just so thankful for their health and growth so far.
Nothing at the moment!
Looking Forward To:
Feeling the babies move, spending the holidays with our family, and, starting to plan the twins’ nursery!!
