The 28-year-old reality TV star’s first entry was all about the differences between her first pregnancy with Hank Jr. and right now with her little girl. She covered everything from how she’s feeling to the healthy lifestyle changes she’s made to how her sex life is!
“I’m in my third trimester and am feeling every little bit of it — I’m round, tired, grouchy, smelly and horny! There are so many things about this pregnancy and I’ve tried to capture them, and how I’m coping with everything, in today’s post…
Maintaining a healthy body is my number one goal with this pregnancy since I understand what can happen if you eat like crap.
I gained about 60 pounds when I was preggers with Lil Hank and I’m desperately trying not to do the same with our daughter.
I also have bad hypothyroidism so I have to be careful this time around. I’ve tried to be really active and I’ve been walking and swimming A LOT.
A couple of weeks ago, I attempted to “play” tennis and I went to run for the ball — for a quick second my mind forgot I was pregnant. My body was like, “What in the world?!”
Needless to say, I think I’m done with tennis for a while.
My food choices are pretty consistent for each meal. I have a high fiber meal in the morning so I can relieve myself (LOL) and get my metabolism started.
About two hours later, I’ll have another breakfast — scrambled eggs and avocado or I’ll have one of my smoothies that I’ve taught myself to make. We make organic frozen fruit mixed with different types of greens … we’re smoothie pros!
Then for lunch, I’ll make a lettuce and avocado salad at home so I can control how much of what I put in it with a low sodium soup. For a snack, I usually have veggies, trail mix, a granola bar or some hummus and pita chips. And for dinner, I actually cook!
I’ve never cooked in my life until now. I learned to cook because I want to know about the food and the ingredients going into my family’s bodies. I’m learning new dishes and so far the boys like them. It’s all about organic food and ensuring the family has balanced meals. And, I’m not going lie, desserts have become a frequent (and favorite) item on the menu!
Unfortunately, while I’m eating all this healthy food, the only thing I can’t control are the smelly and loud gas noises coming from my body!…
BUT the sex is lacking this pregnancy. Newsflash — I’m a very sexual creature. I love my man and sex, but sometimes I feel Hank is not attracted to me.
A big emotional tornado swirls in my head, BUT then he tells me that I complain about this pain or that pain every five minutes, (especially since the baby is sitting really low and I feel like she’s breaking and crushing things down there) so why would he want to touch me?!
And when I cough, I either fart, pee or cramp. Okay, okay. He’s got me there and it makes perfect sense.
All that said, I still catch him staring at me or taking pics and telling me how beautiful I am pregnant or not … so sweet…
With my first child, we tried to have the baby naturally and unfortunately, it didn’t happen. After about 30 hours of labor — actually, nothing happening — I had to have a C-section.
So, we are having a scheduled C-section for baby number two — no more hours than necessary will be spent in the hospital this time.”
And we’re sure that by sharing her struggles, Kendra will help lots of women out there who are going through the same things she is.
But we’re glad she’s taking the time to enjoy the little things, like cooking dinner for her family.
