He's been kicking for awhile, but those little kicks keep getting stronger everyday. 16 weeks to go! Getting VERY excited to meet him.
No weird pregnancy cravings lately. The weirdest one was ranch dressing and popsicles... not together, just in the same meal. My belly button is almost an outie now and sleeping has become quite a challenge. Thank God for body pillows! And Palmer's Tummy Butter. I go through that stuff like water. Trying to avoid stretch marks.
Drinking decaf coffee has been interesting. I'm trying to find one I like. Anyone who says there's no difference in the taste of decaf and caffeinated coffee has damaged taste buds. I think my favorites so far have been the K-cups by Donut House and Green Mountain's Hazelnut flavor. I was addicted to Starbucks' iced coffee, so I've modified by getting an iced americano with decaf espresso and adding a lot of extra ice.
They say prenatal vitamins help your hair and nails. I can definitely say that they have not helped my nails. Maybe I'm the exception. :/ I have been using Kerastase's Nutritive Masquintense, which I LOVE, so it's hard to tell if the prenatals help my hair.
I've still been running, only about 2 miles a day. I've read several different theories on running while you are pregnant. I think the key is not to over do it. Exercise is important, but a healthy baby is a bigger priority than keeping your mile pace. There will be plenty of time for that after baby is born. :) In fact, one of my goals is to run a marathon later this year. Should be an interesting experience! If you are a runner, I highly recommend checking out the new Fall Out Boy album, Save Rock And Roll, which drops April 16th.
Back to work I go! Have a happy Wednesday! ;)
