I’m tired today, even though I slept enough. And stiff. I’m always stiff, though I feel like that is not something new I can blame on baby. Last night after work I went swimming. I swam laps for 45 minutes, which felt great. Not quite nonstop. I did 15 min, 15 min, 5 min (S came in to say hi), then 10 min. (And I remembered to shower when I got home and lather myself in lotion to prevent dry skin.) I’ve said this before, but I’m going to have to swim more. Maybe 2x per week from now on with walking the other days? I don’t know any swim workouts so I just swim freestyle because it’s my favorite and seems to be a whole body workout. And it’s the fastest stroke. Exercise definitely helped my mood.
Baby is moving lots. I still think she’s going through a growth spurt. Today I’m wearing a skirt (the same gray one as in photos below) and I think it will be the last time I wear it, because it feels a bit tight around my belly. Hopefully it will be comfortable all day because I have work and then two meetings one after the other. Also, tomorrow is my 28 week appointment and glucose test.
Some recent belly shots below. I think the size really depends on what I’m wearing. So, I have no idea if it looks like it’s getting bigger or not.
The nursery alcove is looking great. Some construction shots. Behold, the closet first. Pardon the scribbles on S’s face, but I am trying to keep this anonymous.
