May 25 - 30 (30 weeks)

30 weeks - large cabbage

Monday - 30 weeks today, yay, down to the last 9 weeks. Seems like I've been pregnant forever. 3 mile walk this morning.
Tuesday - 12 minutes of planks. On the side planks during the last round, I did 35 seconds on my hand for each of the sides, then finished on my elbow. My upper back is killing me lately in the mornings... I need a massage. Might try to lay on the miracle ball. I brought them here to Brazil but there is no carpeted area to lay on, not sure how my pregnant body will handle laying on the hard floor. we'll see.
Wednesday - 3 mile walk
Thursday - 400 lunges around the yard. Really was not feeling up to it, but glad I got 'er done, 10 at a time, then 50, then eventually little by little all 400. Trying to keep up with this habit.
Friday - 3 mile walk
Saturday - 10 minutes of planks (did my side planks on hands, so only had to do 30 seconds, thus rewarded myself by cutting off 1 minute of time for each side). I really didn't think I would and didn't want to do them, but got them in at 11:30 pm. Corey's gone with the older kids until Wednesday next week, so on slight survival mode.

May 18 - 23 (29 weeks)

29 weeks - large butternut squash
Monday - 29 weeks today. 3 mile walk. My ipod shuffle wouldn't work. It's 10 years old and has been having issues for the past year. Maybe I'll finally put music on my phone. Felt like more of a struggle today, I felt like I was walking really slow and I know I was lacking the usual morning upbeat attitude. Hopefully will be better tomorrow.
Tuesday - 12 minutes of planks
Wednesday - 3 mile walk
Thursday - nothing, slept in knowing I was going to have a long drive ahead of me in the afternoon. Planned to do planks when we got at our hotel, but was too busy killing mosquitos
Friday - nothing, drive home from Sao Sebastain
Saturday - 3 mile walk around 5 pm and did my 400 lunges on the last 1000 meters.

28 weeks - kabocha squash
Monday - 28 weeks today, yay! Baby about 2.5 pounds. Officially done with 7 months, can say I'm in my 8th month, yay. Now I won't feel quite as bad when people comment how grande I am, although I guess I am still a little self conscious. 3 mile walk around the park, jogged about 5 minutes of the hour walk.
Tuesday - 12 minutes of planks, but the mosquitos were trying to get my arms and ankles after I started, to had to stop after 4 min and go get repellent.
Wednesday - 3 mile walk around the park. Beautiful sunrise this morning.
Thursday - 400 lunges at the park on the far east side
Friday - 3 mile walk
Saturday - 12 minutes of planks at 11 pm, glad I got it in.
