Ok I lied, I do care how much I weigh while being pregnant and probably will worry about what I weigh when I’m old and grey in my nursing home :) I went to McDonalds last night for tea - I never usually go but we needed something quick before the film started at the cinema.
For some reason before my shower when I got home I braved the scales and was so shocked to see 10st 8lbs, especially as I weighed dead on 10st when I got weighed at the hospital last month, although it’s hardly surprised with the amount of snacking I’m doing. I still stand by the theory that each boob weigh half a stone each! I’m back at the gym later for a good workout with Eleanor so I’ll feel better then. The weather is so nice today, I want to go for a walk to the harbour too.
Carl is back from his course in Telford later, I plan on cooking cheesy chicken wrapped in parma ham with roasted parsnip and sweet potato mash. Mmm.
I’m 19 weeks pregnant today, a week today and we’ll have our 20 week scan, really cannot wait to see the baby again!
Shock horror I don’t have anything planned this weekend which is really unusual. I’m sure Carl will waste no time in making plans for us when he’s home! xx
Coolest present off my sister - chocolate for me and a chocolate themed baby grow for the baby :-) I sat through over 500 of Lucy’s Vegas pics tonight - I wouldn’t mind going there myself x x
It’s been a very uncomfortable day today, as soon as I started waking into work it felt like I had a really bad stitch in my left hand side, it stayed with me all morning. I thought it might be the baby pressing on a nerve or a pulling ligament but as the day went on I got a bit more worried.
At lunchtime I gave in and called my midwife. She asked if I had any other symptoms which I don’t and she suggested it might me a urinary infection. She told me to take paracetamol to see if it eases. It has this afternoon and I feel much better but still can feel some sort of niggle. If it continues I better get the all clear from my GP.
I had to cancel my Pilates class which is a shame, I just had a nice bath & have my PJ’s on so it’s a night on the sofa for moi.
I’m sure it’s normal to worry about every niggle especially when I haven’t had my 20 week scan yet, just 10 days to go until we have that and can’t wait! X
Had a fab weekend with Lorraine & Sam visiting us. They did bring the sun with them so it was nice to have a break from the rain.
Carl’s lasagne was a success on Friday - garlic bread went down nicely too (everyone’s garlic burps were rank though)
Saturday Ross called in for a catch up before heading to the pub to watch Wales vs England - Wales won so Carl was happy. I’m not a rugby person but admit it was a good game at the end. Had a lovely Indian meal afterwards at Rasoi.
Today I’ve actually sat through a whole game of football :-) I coped quite well haha. Arsenal won do I think Lorraine travelled home happy.
I took my gran to the cemetery this afternoon - she told my grandfather about the baby which was sweet - its such a shame he won’t be here when the baby is born - he would’ve been over the moon. I’m sure he’s looking down on us somewhere not missing out anyway.
Got fajitas for tea - Carl is outers on the sofa feeling ill so I’m in my PJ’s with full control of the remote - happy days! :-)
All in all - a great weekend with great friends x x
Well I didn’t make it to the gym in the end, my stomach still isn’t right so didn’t want to push it. Instead I came home and have done the ironing while Carl made lasagne.
I should be enjoying my pregnancy instead of stressing about my weight - I did enough of that before I got pregnant so from now on I won’t moan about my weight or the gym - I’m just going to take each day as it comes :-)
Going to have a nice bubble bath now and catch up with the soaps! Recorded Jackass 2 last night so will put that on when Carl gets back from the gym.
Can’t wait for the weekend to begin! X
Carl’s famous lasagne he’s made for Sam and Lorraines visit tomorrow! Yum!
Ouch, my stomach really hurts today, especially this morning when I woke up. Got to throw away my lovely Farmhouse white bread later - it really doesn’t agree with me and my stomach has been so painful since yesterday I worry about the baby..so that’s chocolate and bread I have to give up. Ah well, it’ll be good for my cholesterol levels.
I’m off to the gym again later - after seeing my fat arse in the exercise studio mirror last night I really need to get my act together. Definitely need more gym clothes too, I’m squeezing into my clothes at the moment, not an attractive look! :)
Nearly the weekend - yey!!
White bread ban starts today!!
Half way through the week already, I actually did a gym class tonight - chuffed I didn’t give it a miss like I usually do. I was ashamed of how I looked in the gym mirrors, my legs look humungous! So embarrassing. I really need to get my act together, I’ve got a bad stomach tonight and I know it’s down to too much bread. It’s white bread too so I need to cut bread out of my diet as well as chocolate.
I will have garlic bread obviously on Friday with Carl’s famous lasagne - cant let Lorraine have all the fun :-)
I’m watching One Born Every Minute now - looks bloody painful - excited to have our baby :-) x x
Well I’ve had my proper pancakes, Carl was dishing them up before I could eat them, I couldn’t keep up. They were tasty though but now I feel a bit sick! I’m usually on a never ending diet over previous years so it was nice to make them tonight - well eat them while Carl made them for me :-)
I managed to have a good workout at the gym after work with Eleanor today, glad I didn’t pull out again. The stair machine kills me, we can only manage 7 minutes on there so far, want to keep building on that. Also went on the bike and treadmill.
Day 2 of my chocolate ban has gone well, had plenty of chances to grab a bar today - I popped into Tesco’s twice but went straight past temptation! X
