We celebrated 23 weeks of being pregnant this week. I can’t believe that this is the end of the 5th month of my pregnancy. Time is flying! Here are a few highlights from our life with Baby Arnold…
How Big Is the Baby? Baby Arnold is currently the size of a grapefruit. A grapefruit!
It’s (Still) A…Secret. Although, the massage therapist I saw in Santa Fe was convinced that I am carrying a girl!
How I’m Feeling – I continue to feel great. While traveling is tiring, exercising has really helped me keep up my energy levels. I am still experiencing a bit of pain in my left IT band, so I am seeing a chiropractor next week. Cross your fingers for me!
How I’m Changing – I am growing at record pace. My belly continues to expand — I love it! Here’s a look back at the past month…
How I’m Staying Active – I met my goal and was active for 60 minutes every day this week. I managed to incorporate running, walking and yoga into my workout regimen this week. My favorite workout was a two-hour walk through DC last Tuesday with a colleague — it was glorious!
What I’m Eating – I was ravenous this week! I’m still eating pretty healthily and trying to expose Baby Arnold to as many foods as possible. While I haven’t had food aversions, my taste buds are definitely changing. For example, there are some foods that still taste good to me, although they taste different.
What I’m Wearing – I know I have mentioned this before, but maternity clothes are very comfortable. I am still wearing a few items of regular clothing, but am mostly in maternity clothes now. Here are a few looks I wore this week…(L to R: Isabella Oliver wrap dress, Anthropologie dress, Isabella Oliver tie dress)
What We’re Buying – We picked up a few items for Baby Arnold this week while in Santa Fe, including a baby bank and picture frame from the Nambe store. We are also finalizing a few registries for upcoming showers — we have had fun creating them.
The Nursery – Exciting News! Our contractor is going to work on our project this week while I am traveling for work. With any luck, I will come home to a remodeled nursery!
