It seems that I am not the only one who forgets I am pregnant (27 weeks/ 6 1/2 months to be exact). Here are a few things that my "friends" have starting to laugh at me for doing or should I say not being able to do… The title is something someone said to me after watching me do one of the following:
Put on my shoes gracefully - a fews grunts and a crooked tie (off to the side b/c head on is just too much work) is more my style these days!
Get out of the pool - yep, I am that girl swimming thru the other swimmers' lanes to get to the stairs...I can no longer POP up and out of the side of my swim lane!
Move around furniture, people, door frames without hitting something - like I said I "forget" I am pregnant and that my size is no longer the same....watch out for the accidental belly bump!
Get off the floor and onto my feet - it seems the "roll to one side, push yourself up with your hands and scramble to your feet" is something fun to watch! I've been doing a lot of floor press and the "get up" is becoming just as much a part of the workout as the press!
Make a full day of plans and stick with them - I've hit the point of "I need a nap after an hour of anything" Sorry in advance if I can't follow thru on my plans with you for the day - I still can't tell when I am gonna get hit with the "sleep now" stick!
Still no cravings to speak of - The biggest thing I've noticed is that I need A LOT more water! I drink between 100-150oz a day and when I don't that is when I "crave" ice cream, fruit, sweets, peanut butter etc. Keep hydrated and all else stays on track - energy and digestion included!
The last 3 weeks I can tell the biggest changes/limitations in what I can/want to do! Getting anything from the ground is just not comfy - so now it's hang positions with bb's, etc. Any kind of jump is yuck (double unders are actually most comfy b/c the jumps are low). As my hips/joints get looser and my abs get more stretched - my midwife suggests more pushing than pulling!
My favorite workouts/moves this week:
Butcher push - pick a distance and GO every min on the min for 10
"Prego Fit Lynne" - DB Press and Ring Row
20 min on the Airdyne (most comfy met con move right now) 1 min GO - 1 min EASY
Med ball slams - 30 sec on/30 sec rest for 10 rounds
Swimming - anything in the water is great - TX is getting HOT and being weightless is more awesome now than ever before.
