But the kicks, punches, and hiccups are very consistent and strong these days. This little boy has quite the personality and I can already tell its very different from Mr. Laid-back Sawyer who never moved a lot and was totally fine with just hanging out. I have a feeling this one will put us through the ringer especially with sleeping when the punches, dance parties, and kicking is the most strong.
In terms of weight, I'm up 18 pounds, which is the same when I was pregnant with Sawyer. I'm trying to work out, but most days, I'm just doing a 20-minute youtube video and call it a day. That being said, playing and chasing a toddler is quite a workout in itself.
For food, I'm trying to be healthy and I started drinking Red Raspberry Tea, which was recommended to me by my midwife. It's supposed to help my immune system, promote better circulation and strengthen the uterine muscles. I'm supposed to drink 1-2 cups a day, so I make a big batch of ice tea with a little agave and try to drink it with lunch and snack.
In other news, we bought the bassinet stand and I'm going to try to order artwork for the nursery this week. Thankfully, we don't need a lot of stuff because of Sawyer and Christmas, so that makes this time around so much easier.
That's all for now! I do want to try and update more on this pregnancy though. Its been incredibly helpful to look back on my last pregnancy posts, so I want to be better at documenting this one as well. Hopefully, I'll have the time over the next 10ish weeks.
