One more month to go and I will be able to hold my little girl. I am at the point where I am ready for this pregnancy to be over. Though I have a relatively “easy” pregnancy up until the last couple of weeks, I am at the stage where I am uncomfortable no matter what I am doing.
Though I wanted to be one of those women who exercise during my entire pregnancy, I stopped between 6.5-7 months. I am experiencing too much back pain (which I suspect stems mainly from my car accident).
I am looking forward to exercising again!
Strange as it might sound to some of my readers, I cannot wait to start exercising again. I have this lovely vision of pushing the stroller around the park near my home every day after 2-3 weeks of rest and recovery. And as my stamina increases, I plan on venturing further to the bigger park near the local elementary school. Within a month, I hope to start using my exercise dvds on a regular basis again.
I gained too much pregnancy weight!
I gained more pregnancy weight than I thought I would. I am up 31 pounds. I do not anticipate hitting 40 pounds, but I would not be surprise if I end up somewhere between 35-40 pounds.
Prior to my pregnancy, I was more discipline with my eating, but sometimes during the 5th month, I started indulging. It does not help that my husband has “cravings” while I don’t. I got tired of making Oreo cookie milkshakes runs with him. So I am eating desserts and some fast food about 3-4 times a week (nothing crazy, but still out of character for me).
I can tell that my husband wants me to have a massive pregnancy craving where I make him run out in the middle of the night, in the rain, with his pjs and disheveled hair to get my pregnancy craving fix. Why? So that he can join the ranks of men with hormonal pregnant wives that make their husbands do crazy things.
I feel bad for not being able to provide him with fodder for his stories. Sometimes I wonder if I should make something up just so he could feel good about doing his husbandly duty, but the thought of having to eat something like pickles and ice cream is too much a sacrifice for me.
Until next time and thanks for stopping by Small Steps to Health.
