Things I am loving at 23 weeks pregnant

I’ve been pretty bummed out about not running the last few weeks but have so many other things that I am loving at 23 weeks pregnant:

  • Cold fruit – specifically watermelon, red grapes and oranges
  • Belly kicks, punches, rolls and hiccups – this baby is getting active 🙂
  • Ice cold water – can’t get enough
  • Lilly’s trying lots of new food: pesto, pad thai, broccoli trees, snow trees (cauliflower)
  • Cool temperatures in the morning (not so much later in the day/evening, humidity is terrible when you’re pregnant)
  • Evening walks by myself
  • Potty Training (I haven’t washed cloth diapers in over 2 weeks)
  • Lilly loves the potty AND big toilet
  • Raisin Bran and skim milk – seriously, I can’t get enough
  • It’s only taking Lilly 1 hour to go to bed (bath, books, cuddle, crying, cuddle, crying, asleep)
  • Prenatal Yoga at home
  • Fit Pregnancy Magazines (that I bought when pregnant with Lilly)
  • Fit Mom DVD Workout
  • Taking two weeks vacation – glorious idea
  • Farmer’s Markets
  • Started reading a book that is not work, baby or pregnancy related: Where We Belong – Emily Giffin. I even managed to buy it 40% off plus tax free – whoop whoop!
  • Vegan Pesto – might be addicted
  • Slight Olympic hangover but looking forward to watching the Paralympics August 29th

What’s your favourite summer work out?

Any big changes for your kids this summer?

  1. Snow trees – ha ha! I love that 🙂

    I too was “blessed” with a summer pregnancy, and I lived on frozen drinks – smoothies, slushies, milkshakes…anything cold I could drink through a straw! The heat was almost unbearable, I hated every moment of August 🙂

    • “Snow trees” was coined by my husband last week. We had a salad with cauliflower and we told her what it was called, she wasn’t interested in trying them until Sai said they are “snow trees”. Now she LOVES them! ha!
      Normally, I love the heat but the humidity this summer has just been extreme in NS, eh? Sure looking forward to the fall weather.
