Bump Update (Pregnancy #2): 22 weeks


tuesday- .5 mile warm up on TM + NTC sculpted arms workout

I did the following exercises 3x through with an 8lb weight, except the ‘plank front raise to rotation’ I used a 3lb weight=)

I’m loving the 2nd trimester! I’m haven’t been nauseous in weeks and I’m not huge yet so I’m feeling pretty great. I love that my bump is showing more and I can wear more maternity like outfits.

Maternity Clothes? Speaking of, I’m finally in some maternity pants! My sister Leah actually found me the perfect ones that don’t have a panel. I HATE things on my stomach and she found these jeans(also wearing them in above pic) at H&M(I couldn’t find any online). The only part that is stretchy is between the pockets, and they are SO comfy. As far as shirts go I’m just wearing a larger size in regular shirts.

Can you see the dark blue stretchy fabric? That’s where all the comfort is=)

Sleep: I sleep pretty good. For some reason, I wake up every night at exactly 3am and just feel a little uncomfortable and have to adjust, it’s so weird!

Best Moment this Week: Feeling her move all the time. I love her littler kicks and jabs and Josh even saw her kick for the first time last week. He still hasn’t felt her, but it was fun for him to see her kick.

Movement: read above=)

Anything making me queasy? Not really. I realized with the Easter candy around that chocolate gives me heartburn. Not horrible because now I don’t want it as often haha

Food Cravings: Oh yes! I’m LOVING mangoes. I mean that’s not totally new, but their back in season and only 0.68 each! I just love spring/summer fruits and I’ve been eating them by the bunches.

baby girl and mangoes are what my afternoons look like lately

Fitness: I have been so lucky lately. I have felt pretty dang good during most workouts. This week, I’ve had some round ligament pain when I run, so I’m ordering this belly band to see if that helps. I had the same pain with J. Basically, it’s just my belly’s growing pains and the bouncing while running doesn’t feel great. Hopefully the band will help.

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.

  1. You look so cute!! Mmmmm mangoes! I’ve been loving fruit with this pregnancy too, woot 🙂

  2. Favorite fruit right now is probably bananas! And frozen cherries. I need to add mangoes back into the mix!

  3. Favorite fruit right now is strawberries! I love putting them in my protein shakes and salads.

    PS, you are the cutest pregnant lady! Loved seeing you and J yesterday. I like this little lunch tradition we’ve started 🙂

  4. Cute bump! I loved red grapes and watermelon with my second pregnancy!

    Did you run when you were pregnant with J? I got this band http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009LA4VOG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and run with it. It’s cheap, but does the job cause after I run a mile, my baby gets so low. I have to run loops around my neighborhood to stay close because I always have to pee. I’m 33 weeks and the most i can do is a few miles on a good day, but it definently will be nice to go back to running without a huge belly:) you’re so cute..I’m so happy you are having a girl!

    • I didn’t run after 20 weeks with J so I’m hoping to ‘run’ as long as possible with this one. Nice! That band is a lot cheaper, thanks! That’s awesome you’re still running and even push your stroller sometimes, you’re amazing!

  6. You’re absolutely adorable! I hope I look as cute as you do when I become pregnant.
