Pregnancy so far hasn’t been too bad. I miss my old body, being more mobile, flexible and having energy, but I wouldn’t trade what’s to come for anything!
I am currently about 26 weeks pregnant, or for those of you that don’t speak in weeks (which is most of us) I am six months pregnant. I have been very fortunate and haven’t been sick or nauseous during my pregnancy. The two biggest side effects I’ve had and am still experiencing is constantly being tired and HUGE ta ta’s. We are talking Dolly Parton huge!
Working full-time during the day and then 4-5 hours coaching in the evenings takes a toll on me. Both jobs I am on my feet and walking a ton. Which is a good thing for me and the baby, specially since I haven’t been working out. Walking is the extent of my cardio and exercise regiment. Props to those ladies who work out during their pregnancy! I totally blog stalk and admire Lindsay from Lindsay’s List! She is my pregnancy lady inspiration!
As for the ta ta’s…. ladies where do you find undergarments large enough to hold the girls up and still feel comfortable? Please do share your secrets with me!! I’ve had the hardest time finding a brassiere that’s comfortable. And, when I find one that I can tolerate I grow out of it in less than a month. Seriously… I had no idea what I was in for. Last week I dragged The Man to every department store I could find searching for something better, but came up totally empty handed and frustrated! I recently purchased a brassiere off the web, lets pray and hope that it fits and that’s it comfortable! I was really hesitant to buy one without trying it on but the web was the only place I could find sizes that were in the middle of the alphabet, we’ve totally passed those DD’s!
