The struggles and pleasant surprises of becoming a strong single mommy-to-be.
I feel like I’m getting a little bigger, but my progress seems to be idle in pictures.. Maybe it had to do with when I ate in correlation of when I took the pictures, I don’t know. A part of me is so excited to get bigger and love my belly more and more, while another side of me looks at pictures of myself 6 months ago and dreads the possible outcomes of how I will look postpartum.
My boobs are already unrecognizable to my own eyes, and I’m still taking the occasional precautions to avoid stretch marks. I hear that it’s the last 2 months that really tear your body apart, soo.. I guess I can sit in anticipation until then.
Also, my body’s colostrum production and leaking rate.. WHAT EVEN?! And since 13 weeks? I hope this means well for my future goals of breastfeeding at least! It’s so annoying, I’m on the verge of already having to buy nursing pads for those occasional days. *sigh*
Other than that, I’m eating pretty well and maintaining regular low strain exercise.. I may look into prenatal yoga videos or something for around the house activities, but I sure do need to get back on a stair stepper or something to get my glutes back to pre-pregnancy/pre-hips widening condition.
Yes, I know I sound crazy and borderline shallow about my own pregnancy looks but I had a lot going for me prepregnancy, haha. I’m not sorry taking care of myself as much as I do.
Plus, being an in-shape mommy-to-be has been working in my favor as of lately.
