Bump Update: 18 weeks


monday- 2 miles + leg day

tuesday- 1.5 miles(ran out of time)

wednesday- .5 mile w/u on TM + back workout

This week I’ve squeezed whatever workouts I could do in the morning. Yesterday I did the following exercises 3x each with a 5lb weight. First time I’ve done that NTC workout, and I really enjoyed it.

18 week Bump Update

Maternity Clothes? Not yet, I don’t think I’ll buy too many ‘maternity’ clothes because they never fit right with J. I am wearing a few shirts that I bought a size up and they feel great!

Left: 10 weeks Right: 18 weeks

Sleep: I’m sleeping way better than I was in the early stages. I don’t have to pee as often at night so sleep has been great.

Best Moment this week: Thinking of a few names with Josh. We have such different preferences when it comes to girl names, so it’s been really hard. But I love the challenge;)

Weird pregnancy moment: Just seeing my body change. It’s amazing! I’ve gotten a lot thicker down the middle, and a bump is starting to show.

Movement? Yes! This week I have really started to feel her kick and flip around, it’s my favorite thing. I’ll lay on my side and just wait to I feel her, it’s the best.

Anything making you queasy? Not specifically, but my appetite has increased again this week so if I don’t eat something every 2 hours I get a little nauseous.

Food Cravings: Pretty much any food commercial or mention of food and I want it. One thing I try really hard to do while pregnant is eat healthy and eat at home. Fridays we go out, so if I have a craving that lasts all week, then I usually indulge then.

Fitness: I’m loving being able to workout. It’s not always a lot, but I try and do something active every day. If I take a rest day from my usual routine, I try and run around with J. I feel so much better at the end of the day if I’ve been active. It’s been hard to try and fit in a workout that I used to do and realize that I have to run a lot slower now. I feel so funny when I run, but I’m glad I can do it.

My gym moved to the top floor in our guest room(it was in the basement but now we’re renting it out) and I’m actually liking it a lot. I didn’t think I would since it’s a much smaller room, but it’s nice to have J in the room next door. I’m so glad Josh gets my need to workout and hauled that beast up 2 flights of stairs with my dad and BIL, thank you!

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
