Working Out

That's right, I've started working out...
I have not worked out this entire pregnancy...except for that one day when I tried that really lame yoga video and hated it. Now this is nothing out of the ordinary for me. Pre-pregnancy I was not an avid exerciser either. I would get inspired and try something new every once in a while, but I never stuck with it. Last night I felt the urge to get my body ready for delivery and I am totally starting to feel this weight gain ( 28 pounds in 28 weeks...but who's counting right?)
I found some videos on youtube, there are 5 of them. They are each 10 minutes in length and work different parts of the body. I love it! It's pilates, which has always been my preferred method of working out. It didn't feel like too much, but felt like a great workout. I hope I stick with it!

It's Official

I'm in my 3rd trimester! Woohoo
I have mixed emotions. I want to meet Evelyn sooooooo bad, but I think I'll be sad not to be pregnant anymore. I have had a very easy pregnancy which is why I can say that (praise Jesus). But I really like having her all to myself and feeling her move around. Oh and she doesn't require diaper changes or late night feedings ;)
I am anxious though to see what being a mom is all about. I get sick of people complaining about their kids and talking to me like I should expect to hate my life after she is born...ummm I'm sure it's not easy, but come on??
I am also anxious to see what her little personality is going to be. I know I'll have a while even after she's born to discover that, but I hope I see it quickly. I pray she doesn't have a big mouth like me (Lord knows that's gotten me in trouble countless times and I'm still working on it), but she can have my sense of humor because I think I'm pretty hilarious...
I hope she is a ginger baby, is that bad to hope for such a vain thing on such a public forum? It's not like I won't love her if she's not a ginger baby, but OMG red hair and blue eyes would be SO cute. I'm hoping for at least one ginger baby in the family and Maggie and I pretty much have the same odds of getting one.

Last time I saw the Dr. she said this to me "Next time you come in we'll schedule your glucose test". I go to the Dr. yesterday and the nurse is like, okay we're going to do your glucose test now! Ummmmmm normally this would not be a big deal, however yesterday was literally the worst possible day to get that test.
I had a chocolate poptart for breakfast, along with a banana (that's good right?). So that started my day in sugary goodness right there....and I swear I'm not craving sweet things at all, but there was a birthday in the office! What is a girl to do when there are chocolate covered strawberries, brownies and cookies??? I ate them all, and maybe had double portions but whateves.... Until I find out I'm taking a glucose test. CRAP, yes I failed it indeed. Going back in 2 weeks for a re-test. I shall be on my BEST behavior for this one.

Don't lie, you wouldn't be able to resist this either!
