Since I’ve hit 35 weeks, I’ve noticed I’ve gotten much more uncomfortable and much less able to keep up my previous pregnancy workout routine. Since the baby seems to be coming soon, I know it’s just the normal end days.
I went from this:
Monday 1 hour “elevated training” class, a challenging fast-paced strength group class plus another .5 hour of free weights on my own
Tuesday 1 hour Spin class
Wednesday 30-45 minutes elliptical
Thursday 1.5 hours free weights
Friday 1 hour Spin
Sat/Sun Rest days
I’ve decided last week’s elevated training class was my last one until after this baby. I had to modify too many things…I can’t lie on my back at all any more for even a couple of minutes without feeling sick and dizzy…I had to drop weight for the first time this pregnancy…I just keep having Braxton Hicks and having to slow down.
I think I’m going to do more easy weight days on my own in the weight room, easy Spin classes, and the elliptical. I still hope to do five days per week of something until the baby is born.
My daughter started preschool today. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for two and a half hours. Fall weather just hit…the nursery is almost done (will post pics soon)…I only have a few more “must do” hurdles to clear before I will feel ready for the baby:
Finish a fitness column (I tried out two barre Pilates fusion classes for a regional magazine)
Have my daughter’s birthday party
Make sure my husband is back home from a business trip
Get our backseat seat belts replaced so we can put the new car seat in
And then…baby is welcome to come!
