Weekend Recap

9 Jan

Hey guys!

I’m in a much better mood today on day three of bed rest.  I think I’m getting into the swing of things- doing nothing.  Plus I have been on bed rest for 2 1/2 days and only have two more to go until I can avoid the helicopter ride to Phoenix to deliver Baby C as long as she continues to stay put.  Once I make it to Wednesday, my next goal it to make it until Friday for my next doctor’s appointment (I’m curious to see if I’ve dilated anymore) and then from there I want to make it to Wednesday the 18th.  I’m really hoping I don’t give birth this Friday the 13th as I’m pretty superstitious.

In other news, is it sad that I try to put off my shower until about noon because it is the most consecutive standing I do all day and I treasure it?  I feel like if I shower first thing in the morning I don’t really have anything to look forward to all day?

The past few days have been pretty uneventful, but I have done a lot of baby research and feel pretty confident that I can handle labor, breastfeeding and infant care.  I’ve also watched two movies and am excited to pick out another one to watch today.  On Saturday I watched The Help and yesterday I watched I Don’t Know How She Does It.  Both were good movies I thought, but neither blew me away.

Here are my eats from the weekend

Saturday

  • Breakfast- Ezekiel English Muffin with Egg and Cheese + coffee with creamer + whey protein shake.
  • AM Snack-  Apple and Clif Mojo bar
  • Lunch-  Greek yogurt with chia seeds, almond butter and honey
  • Dinner-  BLT on a whole wheat bun with Alexia brand onion rings

*I also had a little peppermint bark during the day as well

Sunday

  • Breakfast- Ezekiel English Muffin with Egg and Cheese + Coffee with creamer
  • AM Snack- Apple and Clif Mojo bar
  • Lunch- Greek yogurt with chia seeds, almond butter and honey
  • Dinner-  Flank steak stir fry with whole wheat noodles

*Peppermint bark and mini shortbread cookies were also consumed a couple times

Since I’m not working out or moving much, I’m trying to stick with my work week eats as much as possible and also trying to eat a little bit less since I don’t need to eat the calories I burn in the gym.

Workouts have obviously been zero.

Quincy destroyed my heating pad, but luckily Keith went out and bought a new one for me to use

This past Thursday, we got some baby goodies for Baby C.  I had fun setting up the swings and vibrating chair.  We are waiting to open the play mat and are waiting to decide on the perfect spot to put her video monitor.  The video monitor was a Christmas gift from Keith’s parents and it is so neat!  I had a lot of fun playing around with it before I got put on bed rest.

Keith made us the best stir fry last night for dinner.  It was filled with organic veggies and wasn’t salty at all!  He made whole wheat noodles along with it!  So good!IMG_0576IMG_0579

My bowl, I went back for more noodles!

I’m excited to eat the leftovers for dinner tonight!

Well, that’s it for me!  It’s time for me to go watch a movie!  Winking smile

I hope you are all having a great start to your week!

Questions:

  • What is your favorite stir fry vegetable?
  • What do you think of Beyonce’s baby name- Blue Ivy?
  • If you used baby carriers for your kids, how old were they when you started using them?
