Pregnant again

This Time Around

I can’t believe it is already February.  Yesterday David and I celebrated another wonderful year of marriage and I subtly announced that we will be welcoming baby #2 into this world before the end of the year.

The beginning of this pregnancy was challenging because I was ALWAYS exhausted.  I felt like I couldn’t keep up with Jet and all I had the energy to do was lay on the couch.  Now that I am in my second trimester I feel A LOT better and I am having to simply cope with minor morning sickness and heartburn.  Given that I had terrible morning sickness the first time around I would say this pregnancy has been a lot easier.  It is still early, however, so I’ll let you know how I am holding up when I am big as a globe and carrying around another 30LBS of toddler on a daily.  🙂

Throughout my last pregnancy, I was completely inactive.  I didn’t workout at all and other than walking all over NYC to get around for a few months, I was relatively sedentary.  A couple of months before Jet turned 1, I decided to get back into a workout routine and subsequently started feeling amazing shortly after.  But fast forward three months and I was now pregnant and lacked the major energy I needed to keep up with life, let alone my workouts. This is the time when my workouts came to a complete halt and my diet became filled with starchy carbs that would serve to soothe my nausea. Needless to say, I started feeling like junk pretty quickly.

My goal this time around is to be active throughout this pregnancy.  I want to get back to working out now that I have more energy and hopefully cut out all the terrible foods I have been eating.  If my nausea sticks around all 9 months like it did the first time, I am certain my diet will be the biggest challenge. I am writing this in hopes it will help me stay accountable as I plan to document my journey along the way.
Wish me luck! 🙂
