Having just passed my twentieth week, I figured it might be time to give you guys a quick update on my second pregnancy. I’ve been so surprised that it is pretty different than my first. For starters, I am realizing what a luxury it was being pregnant last time with only work and my workouts contributing to my exhaustion because it is truly a different ballgame taking care of a toddler on top of it all now.
Morning sickness has been on another level this time around, and despite being on baby safe medication from my doctor, I’ve been ailing so much from it I had to sit out Thanksgiving travel plans and took two weeks off from the gym. I hadn’t taken that long of hiatus from my workout routine since recovering from giving birth to my son last year. I’m slowly dipping my toes back in, and looking for natural ways to soothe my symptoms. There truly could not have been a better time for Jillian Michael’s new book, Yeah Baby! to arrive on my doorstep. The world famous trainer, nutritionist (most notably of Biggest Loser fame) and mother of two along with a panel of experts tackles everything from pre and post natal fitness and health to holistic remedies for symptoms to tips to increase your child’s IQ and future fitness abilities.
