As I approach week 36 of my pregnancy, there is a lot on my mind. You would think so much of pregnancy is spent waiting around, but you find you use the time to read things, acquire things, and take the necessary steps so that when the baby actually arrives, you’re ready to care for him and nothing else.
As I write this, I’m about five weeks away from my due date! The end of pregnancy is often the time when moms report feeling like time has slowed to a crawl. I am wondering when that is going to kick in, because I feel like this pregnancy is FLYING by!
The last time I called into work for being sick was probably six or seven years ago...till now. They say being pregnant can lower your immune system— and I believe it!
This week, I'd like to talk about a couple things— 1) My birth plan and “mentally” preparing for baby, and 2) Reasons why it's good to work out during your pregnancy!
This Friday, I will be entering my 32nd week of pregnancy! It's really strange to think we could have a little human here in 8 weeks, give or take.
A few weeks ago I posted a workout routine that I do— and here is a sample diet to go with it. Many of you have asked about my food. You'll see there is nothing crazy here, it’s just well rounded.
Doctors recommend an ideal weight gain of 25-35 pounds during pregnancy. Of course, this varies based on the individual—they recommend less weight gain for women who are already overweight and a little more if you are underweight. But, don't worry—this isn't all fat that you have to work off after the baby is born.
This week my baby shower invitations are going out in the mail. For first-time parents, figuring out all the things you will need is a lot of work!
When this Friday hits, I will be 28 weeks pregnant, and Baby Staggs still does not have a name. Undoubtedly, one of the first things you will be asked when you tell people you are pregnant, or when you share the gender of the baby, is “Got any names picked out?”
I have had many people ask me if I am still training or lifting weights while I'm pregnant. The answer is yes!
