Preggo Fun fact: Cruz’s eyes have opened and she can blink. Her movement is more coordinated.

Trimester: 2nd trimester (last week in my 2nd trimester)

Movement: She is kicking like crazy! I feel her stretching and getting bigger.

How many weeks left: 14 weeks

Symptoms: I feel super pregnant and heavy, heavy in the sense that this baby girl is growing so much! Somedays I feel super exhausted and won’t leave the house (cook all day and watch romantic movies on netflix) and then other days I’ll go to spin + run 2 miles. I’m just listening to my body and doing whatever it needs me to do.

Sleep: 9-10 hours

Pregnancy Items: I have been using my pregnancy pillow/wedge like crazy! I use it under my bump, in between my legs, or on my back.

Favorite Recipes/Meals This Week:
Whole Wheat Waffles + Sauteed Apples + Peanut Butter Sauce

This ended up being a super fancy meal and so delicious! Steak, roasted cherry tomatoes and asparagus, red mashed potatoes, and sautéed wild mushrooms and onions.


Pregnancy Cravings: I haven’t had any crazy cravings throughout pregnancy but this week I have wanted ice cream!!!! I satisfied this craving with a banana split at Sugar Bowl and then later this week I got homemade Oreo Cheesecake ice cream from Olive & Ivy.

Baby bump update: My bump is definitely growing this week!

Random Thoughts: I’m so proud of myself for consistently making hubs his lunch and snacks for work. For lunch I made him a Mexican inspired Buddha Bowl, Banana Chia Seed Pudding, Banana Bread muffin, 4 Ingredient Date Balls + 1/2 string cheese + roasted turkey, and orange slices. 

Exciting news: We send invites for our baby shower!!!! My Mom and Mother-In-Law are throwing it in our hometown. This won’t be a traditional baby shower, we will have all family and friends – including men and women. This will be more a of celebration of Cruz!

Best moment of the week: Going to Sedona!!!! We drove 2 hours each way and it was so worth it!
