Congratulations! Listen to your body would be my main advice. If you're knackered, rest up, but otherwise enjoy it. Cherry Baker's Pregnancy & Fitness is superb. I found Fit & Fabulous great for maternity running/gym gear.
It's so easy to forget what you're not supposed to do, isn't it?! Just trying to get on with things normally etc. Am glad rest has eased things though! How many weeks are you now?
Ouch re your husband. That doesn't sound much fun. Is it healing OK? Sports injury? Fair enough re driving you to the hospital!!
I did think to myself it's highly unlikely things would happen so quickly I wouldn't have time, but I was talking to a friend at the weekend who was kept in at a routine appointment and induced - that made me get on with it!! Plus husband and mum kept asking me to get sorted. They're both very organised types, me not so much!
21st December. So excited! I honestly won't know what to do with myself. Mind you, Xmas should be a nice distraction! What about you?
It's such a funny thing, isn't it! Wouldn't have thought it would remotely have bothered me before! It's a good point you make re recovery times. What will be, will be. So much of pregnancy is out of our control, I am learning!
Same here re back and pelvis pain. Much harder for you having to look after your little one too! Is your husband helping out a lot? Hope so! Went from being tempted to run a couple of weeks ago, to consoling myself with a nice, long walk on Sunday and putting pelvis out again. Got it sorted v. quickly (yay to fab gynae physio service!) and have learned my lesson. Aqua areobics, preg yoga, 'normal' walking and pilates about the limit now. Still, not too long to go. I've even laid out some stuff for hospital bag (and I'm a packing-at-midnight-before-a-flight kind of girl!
Thank you! Mm, not sure. I was breech as a baby and the placenta was damaged in the process, so I was quite ill when born. Will do a lot of research into it. Really don't fancy a C-section though! How are things with you? Are you feeling OK?
