Weekly Workouts: 36 & 37 Weeks Pregnant

Weekly Workouts: 36 & 37 Weeks Pregnant

So much walking and slow movement these last couple weeks. I think Edith can sense a shift in the force and has become more attached (and less inclined to nap). So we’ve been pounding the pavements for long walks. These end of pregnancy walks are more taxing than I anticipated— I headed out on a long five mile loop one afternoon and very much wish I could have ended that walk about a 1.5 miles sooner. Baby is growing, putting additional strain on my pelvic floor, and as my body is really preparing for labor, I’m dealing with some pubic symphysis pain, aggravated apparently by long walks. Everyday is a learning opportunity, right? Right.

A trip to my amazing chiropractor and some conscious breath work has me feeling in much better shape.
