First Trimester Recap

Not going to lie moms…. these first 13 weeks have not been the most fun! Baby number two is a lot different then Brody. I have not felt the best so far, mainly in the mornings but still not great all throughout the day. To make things worse  I had a cold for more than four  weeks ( still have it, thinking allergies )  with lots of coughing, sleepless nights and a stuffed up nose. I hope my first trimester recap helps me to connect with some new moms who are headed into the second trimester!!!

If you are wondering how my workouts have been? Well not good! If I don’t get it done first thing in the am then it didn’t get done. I had no motivation to workout even when I started I didn’t want to finish. I got in about 2-3 workouts a week maybe, that’s a big difference since I was working out 6 days a week.

If you think my workouts were bad you should have seen what I was eating. My poor nutrition definitely did not help me feel any better and it’s probably why I was lacking motivation to workout. The problem was I couldn’t even look at chicken or veggies, they all made me sick! All I wanted was carbs, cereal, and chocolate . Who else has been there? Fruits I was eating all day ,  I’m still snacking on mangos, watermelon and blood oranges .

Around 11 weeks I finally got my act together and started eating better.  I started to take Allegra ( my dr + my NP sister in law 🙂 told me too)  and it has made a HUGE difference in how I feel. I still have allergy symptoms but not half as bad as they were. I have never had allergies before so this is new to me! I went back to my normal way of eating and that’s when I finally started feeling better. Weeks 12-13 were very similar to week 11 . Eating pretty good and getting in more workouts and walks . I am drinking a protein shake but not everyday. I don’t love the company I am using and am on the hunt for a new one! With Brody I drank shakeology everyday but with this baby I couldn’t get it down for some reason! Once I find a fav I will share it. I plan to drink 2-4 shakes a week when needed.

I am so excited to keep sharing all about pregnancy number two and I would love to hear from some other moms who have had more than one kid! I run a FREE group on Facebook full of moms who are working towards a healthy lifestyle for them and their families . I would love for YOU to be apart of our MomUnity!!!  Find me insta ,  FB or comment below and I can add to you fitfam or we can just connect and chat
