Weeks 23 & 24

It’s been awhile since my last post because so many things have been going on, it’s been hard to make time to read blogs or write a post.

My workouts have not been great. First my left hipflexor has been hurting. So much so that just walking around I notice the pain. So I took time off workouts to let it rest, which worked out well because my time at work increased during this time. Then when I started feeling better I started back cycling on my trainer. That didn’t aggravate the hipflexor so I started getting “seat time” built up by doing small stints on the bike.

After a few days of this I had another setback. I was walking in a restaurant and slipped and fell. I didn’t make it all the way to the ground because I grabbed the empty table near me. In doing so I basically stabbed myself in the ribs with the sharp back corner of a wood chair. I bruised my ribs really bad, but the baby was totally okay, thank goodness! For my ribs to recover I could only rest, apply ice, and take aspirin. I’m feeling better now and I hope to get back into cycling and swimming first. Then I will add more walking and running if my hip cooperates.

Here are the workouts I did get in:

We have some more nursery progress! We got the rug for the room. It’s the Addison Rug from Pottery Barn. It’s high quality and I’m happy with the pattern. It is wool so it is rougher than I would like, so I will likely get something soft to lay down in part of the room for the baby. Also, it may soften up over time and with vacuuming.



I have some new workout goodies, nutrition gadgets, and baby items to share in my upcoming posts. More to come! 😀

  1. You look great! Talk about scary!!! Good thing you caught yourself…yikes, I think I would have been flipping out! I am sure the hip pain will go away…mine did eventually. Unfortunately, growing belly didn’t make things easier 😉 I’m just sticking with walking these days…


    1. Thanks! I’m so glad that the fall wasn’t worse. Yeah if I even if I can only walk, I will keep at it. Feels good to keep moving! 🙂 You are in the home stretch! How exciting!!!


  2. I’m really sorry about all the small set backs but glad the hip flexor is feeling better. Oh my stars, I’m so glad that the baby is okay and I’m always glad to hear your updates. I can’t imagine doing those workouts at all being as far along as you are. You are such an inspiration my friend!


    1. Thanks! I do order online mostly. My favorite maternity stores have been: Topshop, Asos, Gap, and Destination Maternity.
      I have been able to wear some things from my previous wardrobe.
      Plus my favorite non-maternity has been Forever21. I just buy everything in a larger size. Hope this helps!
      If you have other store suggestions, let me know! 🙂
