May Monthly Round Up
I can’t believe it is already June 1st! This pregnancy is flying by, I have already hit the half way mark. May was a super busy month for us yet I feel like nothing major happened!
As most of you know we found out at our 17 week ultrasound that we are having a GIRL! We were kinda shocked but deep down I had a feeling! Of course I have already started a pinterest board for her bedroom! Right around the same time ( 17 weeks ) I started to feel some movement. Mostly at night when I’m trying to go to bed , she starts kicking. I haven’t weighed myself and I am not really sure how much I weighed before I got pregnant so I’m not sure how much I have gained so far! I have no new preggo issues, food aversions or cravings. So far my sleep has changed either, but I know that way is coming that I’m going to be uncomfortable at night, but for now I’ll take my 8 hours!!
Brody is a lot of fun right now ( and a lot of work) ! He is talking more and now loves to say momma . He also loves to bark like the dogs!! He is def an outside kid and I have to drag him inside when its time to go in. He still sleeps 7-630/7ish most nights and we are very thankful for that. We love spending out days outside at the water table or on the beach.
My workouts this month have been great! It’s weird because I have been loving hiit workouts which normally are not my fav. I have also been going on lots of walks. My nutrition has also been good this month, no food aversions. I have been looking for healthier desserts and have been loving lasso bars , graham crackers with cool whip and frozen pops for Brody. I am now looking to make over my favorite unhealthy treats a healthier way. I will share all the recipes I find.
This month I bought some new products that are safer for us. I got new sunscreens for me & Brody. I ended up going with Babyganics Mineral-Based Baby Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50, 6oz Tube (Pack of 2) and Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30, 3 Fl. Oz. (Pack of 3). I needed some new face wash but everything in the store had fragrance listed in the ingredients ( avoiding fragrance ) so I went with the brand Simple . It doesn’t score great but it’s not too horrible so the search continues!
I have been playing around with my coffee and I’m loving cold brew coffee that I make at home & buttered coffee with cashew milk . I throw it all in my blender real quick so its nice and frothy.
Shane got me succulents for mother’s day and I LOVE them! I really hope I don’t kill them. I’ll take any advice on keeping them alive!!
