21 Weeks

Wow! Is that correct?? It’s hard to believe that I’m already over halfway there. Or if this pregnancy goes like my others I’m probably not even halfway (sigh).

I’m feeling pretty great. I think that my diet change has helped with fatigue. I’m trying to take my daily supplements, eat healthy, and get around 7-8 hours of sleep per night. I do still get a little exhausted, but that’s to be expected with 4 little ones running around. I’ve still been doing a lot of research on the Paleo diet and pregnancy. There’s not a whole lot of information out there, but what I’ve found makes it sound safe. Robb Wolf (The Paleo Solution) recommends adding in extra carbs and fat during pregnancy. So I haven’t been stressing about eating extra fruit.

My exercise has definitely been lacking. I’m hoping to get back on track with walking and squats this week (along with the dreaded Kegel’s, I don’t know why I hat those things so much!). The lack of exercise might be why I’ve already gained 16 pounds. Ugh. Oh well, I tend to really pack on the weight but luckily it comes off fairly easily after the birth.

Baby’s really starting to move around a lot now too. I think that has to be the most exciting sensation ever… feeling life inside of you. I had my drink glass resting on my tummy this morning & got a kick hard enough to move the glass. Wow!
