Pregnancy Update, Week 29

Yep, that's about how I'm feeling now.
Wow, week 29 has already came and went. Zoe is really starting to pick up with her wiggles and I'm getting more and more excited to meet her. I've noticing myself wondering what she looks like in there now. Our last 4d ultrasound was almost 3 months fact that was also my last ultrasound. I wonder how big she is, what she looks like...

This week, the fatigue has started to kick back in. I notice by the end of the day all I want to do is lay down. Honestly, most of the day, all I can think about is when I'll get to lay down. I still haven't let this interfere with my staying active plans, but it's just starting to get harder. The motivation I felt after making up that pregnancy workout plan is waning, but I think I might have actually established a habit. Pre-pregnancy I was so used to running, I ran even when I absolutely didn't want to, and so far, the same has been true with my exercise schedule. This last week there was only one day I didn't stay on schedule. I was feeling completely exhausted and I had really pushed myself the day before. I thought that my body needed a rest and I might do more damage if I didn't rest, so I made it a rest day instead.

I actually got up to a full on run this week. Most of "runs" have been barely above a walking pace, but I actually got up to more of a running pace, and while I could hold it, it felt so good and freeing. Again, I did pay for it the next day, but it was worth it. Here is what my week looked like:
  • -Sunday 2/12 - Rest
  • -Monday 2/13 - 30 minute walk and 40 minutes on the elliptical followed by leg circuit
  • -Tuesday 2/14 - 30 minutes walk and 30 minute run/walk followed by arm circuit
  • -Wednesday 2/15 - 45 minutes walk and 45 minutes of yoga
  • -Thursday 2/16 - 45 minute run/walk followed by arm circuit
  • -Friday 2/17 - Rest
  • Saturday 2/18 - 4 mile run/walk
Again, another pretty good week for me activity wise. My husband and I started a prepared birth class on Wednesday and will be going every Wednesday for the next 6 weeks. In the first class we learned about the signs of labor and different stages. I have to admit, I'm even more terrified of giving birth than I was prior to the class. We watched countless women in all the different stages of labor. I loved that at the end of the class a women raised her hand and asked if we'd be learning about epidurals sometime soon. My thoughts exactly.
