We are now at 17 weeks and all is good. Since hitting the second trimester, I did get some of my energy back and have been going strong. Good thing too with all of the travels we have ahead of us! I see my doc every two weeks and still have the blessing to carry on with all of the exercising.
I have not gained a single pound for the last 5 weeks but the bump is growing. My doctor says this is completely fine and normal especially since putting on a few extra pounds in the beginning when there were two babies in there. Thankfully now instead of craving Chinese food and pizza, I am craving more healthy foods. I can't seem to get enough fruit! I also crave coconut..anything coconut and pickles! I can't get enough pickles. Pickles and coconut are usually not things I even like but at the moment...I can't get enough of!
How's the exercise going?! GREAT!
Run/Walk- Still jogging a little but mostly now I am power walking. I am walking 25-30 miles weekly and I walk every single day! My total for the last 4 weeks is 110 miles. Yes...110! I pound the pavement more every week now than I did in Ironman training...funny! I love it too! It makes me feel so good. I will keep up the mileage hopefully until baby comes!
