Mommy & Me-Take 3

Me and the milkshake before our workout Sunday:


17 weeks 4 days

I haven’t had to modify my workouts yet, but I make sure to listen to my body. If I feel lightheaded or faint, I stop or bump the weights down. I limit my runs to a mile, and power walk the remaining distance. Yesterday I took the dogs on a 5k walk and they were SO well behaved I was able to do lunges and squats every half mile.

  1. So cute…love the bump.

  2. pat chance says:

    tiny little bump – glad you can still work out – know it would bother you if you couldn’t

  3. Stephanie Russell says:

    Oh my goodness..your bump is too cute!!! Can’t wait to see it in person!!

  4. so cute… just listen to your body and you will be great πŸ™‚

    • I’ve been trying to. Thought I would lift 12 lb weights the other day…not quite. Eating pretty healthy has been going pretty well, especially since anything fried or heavy makes me feel sick.

  5. How awesome that you are starting your MAMM pictures now!!! I love watching new mommies grow (their bellies and their mind). GSMM Friends with your sister (thankful she shared your blog), and I will be following you! Just had my 2nd 6ths ago, so I am re-living vicariously πŸ™‚

    • Thank you…and that’s great! When I post my zillion questions (although my sister has been really great with them—I call her my on-call dr) you’ll have some helpful answers.

  6. You look so cute! At 17 weeks, I could barely get out of bed to go to the bathroom. I admire you for keeping your fitness a priority during your pregnancy!

  7. Cute Bump! Your body will thank you for the workouts during labor! congrats on your little milkshake πŸ™‚

  8. It is a very exciting stage as you begin to show. Sounds like you have a great routine. As you go into the third trimester your balance and joints will change. You may want to take the longer walks without the fur babies eventually.

    I hang out with your sister here in Atlanta.congrats on the new blog!

    • I’ll be in ATL next week hanging out with here…I can’t wait. Pretty soon Madelyn won’t be coming on the walks. No matter how many times we’ve worked with her, she gets so excited and wants to yank me all over the place. And if she sees a squirrel it is game over.

  9. Found out about your new blog from Krystyn. πŸ™‚ Love, love, love that you are taking pics now with your milkshake! I didn’t take nearly enough pics when I was pregnant with my kids, and I really regret it now. Good job mama!

  10. You look fabulous!!!
