hi women! Just dropping in to say hello, and because I finally got in something that felt like a workout this morning
I've been walking some, but got SO lazy as I was studying for my comps in mid-August and then after, because it was nasty hot. Good news - I passed my comps (yay!) and I have been getting in some more walking. Today, I walked 2.5 miles with some hills, and did a few (maybe 6?) 1-2 min slow running intervals, just to get the heart rate up a bit (and to see if I could, haha). Also did some squats and a 1-minute plank. I'm 36w4d
, so I'm also in the "if I get moving, maybe baby will start moving too" mindset. Not that I have any desire for her to come early, but I certainly am done with being pregnant. I'm freaking out about how little time left I have with my only child
, but I'm also feeling the need to just get there so I can stop being anxious about how I'm ruining her life.
Had a midwife appt today and there is some progress (1-2 cm dilated, 60% effaced), but I also know I could hold on for 3 more weeks. We'll see...
I can't wait to get back to running, but I promise to be patient. Lack of patience last time really messed me up.
