• My baby bump is officially bigger than a bowling ball, so I think it’s safe to say that my third trimester is well under way! I also can’t believe there are single digit weeks left until Baby Haupert arrives! Crazy!

    CRAVINGS

    Nothing crazy or usual. Still loving fresh fruit, smoothies, yogurt, froyo, and cupcakes, but, of course, I always love cupcakes.

    AVERSIONS

    Pretty much the same as before, but no new ones.

    OTHER SYMPTOMS

    Frequent urination: Same as before, but I’m a lot more thirsty lately, so I’m drinking more water than I usually do.

    Morning sickness: It’s baccckkkkk! It’s nothing like the first trimester, but I still feel a little nauseous at night and sometimes during the day. A lot of foods aren’t super appetizing to me either.

    Indigestion: My indigestion was so bad during weeks 29-31, but I finally got it under control by week 32. For me, it had a lot to do with what and how much I was eating for dinner, so when I laid off certain foods and started eating smaller dinners, I started to feel a whole lot better. It’s not completely gone, and I still eat TUMS sometimes, but it’s so much better, especially when it comes to sleeping!

    Restless Better sleep: I feel like I am about to jinx myself by saying this, but I’ve been sleeping so well lately. I’m not even using the Snoogle! There were a couple of weeks when Mal was sick and then I was sick (and big and pregnant) when I barely slept, but I’ve been sleeping great lately. I hope it keeps up!

    Clear skin: My skin is still looking great!

    Cramping: Nothing major, kind of like period cramps. I asked my doctor about it last week and she said it’s totally normal (as long as I don’t see blood or fluid). It just means my body is getting ready to have this baby!

    Weight gain: At my 32-week appointment last Monday, I was up 32 pounds.

    WORKOUTS

    I’m still CrossFitting on a regular basis! Here are my weekly workout recaps from the past three weeks: 30 weeks, 31 weeks, and 32 weeks.

    I’m still feeling good, but I recently started to feel some pressure in my hips when I run. Thankfully, we haven’t been doing too much running at CrossFit lately and when we do, I often opt for rowing instead, especially if it’s a longer running WOD. Other than that, I’m just feeling out my workouts—challenging myself when I feel good and taking it easy when I don’t have as much energy.

    ADDITIONAL UPDATES

    Baby Haupert gets the hiccups

    I knew babies got hiccups in the womb, but I never felt them until about week 31 or so. It actually didn’t occur to me right away what I was feeling, but once I figured it out, I was so excited. So excited, in fact, that I woke Mal from a dead sleep to tell him! Haha! He was kind of annoyed, but he played along and then fell back to sleep. Since then, Baby H. has got them a few more times, which my doctor said is totally normal. She also added that he’ll likely hiccup quite a lot once he’s born too!

    I’m still trucking along with my workouts! My energy levels are all over the place, so some days I’m all about CrossFit and other days I’d much rather lay on the couch. On those days, I’ll typically take Murphy for a long walk. Once I’m up and moving, I always feel a lot more energized. […]
