Third Trimester [Twin Pregnancy]

We made it to the third trimester… HOME STRETCH!20170901_224450{27 Weeks}

Weight: My pre-pregnancy weight was 155lbs, now I’m at 178lbs for a total of 23lbs gained. So far I weigh a bit less in the third trimester then I did with Samantha.

Mental Health: Zoloft has been a blessing. I have been able to think clearer and have less anxiety about becoming a mom of three [under three].

I didn’t know how my body would react to it but for me it’s a peace of mind. IMG_20170908_142332_980I can analyze things better, plus not to mention read again without having my mind racing.

Fitness: Still managing to get in 2-3 workouts a week!

My current “goal” is to do Barre 1-2 times a week (I now teach 1-2 Barre classes a week) and try to take at least 1 Pure Barre class, plus teach my Tabata class (modified for me, of course).

Barre has been awesome because it focuses somewhat on calf strength building. My leg has felt much better (plus the compression stocking is super helpful).27 weeks{29 Weeks}

Here’s what my current fitness routine looks like during the week:

  • Monday: Active Rest Day (or Pure Barre)
  • Tuesday: Pure Barre (or Active Rest Day)
  • Wednesday: Barre & Sculpt Class [I teach]
  • Thursday: Rest Day (usually go for walks with Sammy/ Supermarket)
  • Friday: HIIT or Circuit Workout
  • Saturday: Pure Barre
  • Sunday: Rest Day

I try to keep moving regardless if I don’t make it to a class or get to workout. I’m still trying to focus on eating as healthy as I can.

Food: Still craving cookies like mad!21768013_10103178192358900_6419514306492671448_nBut now with the fall upon us, the body craves pumpkin EVERYTHING. #DontJudge 😉haloRing: Still able to wear my wedding band! Some days my fingers are a tad swollen, so I’ll put on my pearl engagement ring which is a tad loser than my wedding band.

Clothing: I finally needed to get a couple of large and XL tank tops and moved into my medium sized leggings from smalls.21762826_10103169413007790_8740627558854539078_oI’m not as big as I thought it would be compared to other twin moms. That makes me feel better entering winter, clothing wise. So far my coat still zips, I’m sure that will change by next week. 😉

I can tell my energy level is going down a tiny bit each week, which I was told would happen past 28 weeks. For now, I am enjoying the energy that I do have hanging out with the family and giving Sammy that special “only child” one on one time.20170813_200252***
