Workout results 2/25 - Day 14 of The Mommy to Be Olympic Challenge!

Friday, February 26, 2010

I am leaving today to head to Dallas for my baby shower tomorrow! I just cannot believe this day has come. I remember when I first knew I was pregnant, I started thinking about my shower and it seemed so far away and now it is here. I will be sure and blog all about it when we return.

Over the weekend I will stay strong on my challenge and will log my results when we get back. The challenge ends on Sunday so we will have to see how I did and what medals will get!!! I am so happy I did this challenge, it has helped me a great deal.

Yesterday was MUCH better than the other day when I was so sick but I did have some contractions and had to come home to rest as they were really bothering me. We are going to talk to my doctor about this next week when we get to see him for my 35 week appt. I just want to try and have her inside as long as possible. On March 18th, I will be 37 weeks which is considered full term and I really want to make it to that date! I may need to take it a bit easier until then but we will wait to see what my doctor says.

Here are my results from yesterday. I did get a good walk in but I wanted to do more but I was having regular, strong contractions so I really needed to head home and rest. Once I did, I felt much better. Hopefully today I can get in at least 30 mins before leaving for Dallas.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!

    I know 36 weeks is considered full term, but the longer you can keep the baby in the oven, the better! I know you know that, but if that means no walks, I'd do it...
    I hope though that you can keep walking--- I know how good it is mentally- and physically!

    Whatever comes your way, I know you'll do it! You are just that way!

    Enjoy your shower- I'm sure it's lovely and make sure to allow that baby a treat-LOL! I can't imagine a nice shower without some yummy treats!!!

    My SIL is pregnant- only 3 months right now- and I'm already looking forward to the shower, even though I wished they'd skip over the gift opening... at my other SIL's shower, they hired a psychic... it was SOOOOOOO fun!

    If I had time, I'd love to knit your little girl a sweater... but working overtime is killing me right now!

    But, send me your address one of these days ( if you want of course) and I'd love to send Michaela something to remember!

    HUGS girly!

    P.S. I totally get these urges to take up knitting... I'm so weird sometimes!

    I like the spin you put on the word "metals" instead of medals! At first I thought you just misspelled it but then I thought she probably just means gold, silver or bronze!

    Have fun at your baby shower in Dallas. Can't wait to hear all about it.

    Jen, have a safe trip and enjoy the shower with your family. Did you ever post pics from your first shower? It sounded like so much fun. Can't wait to hear about this shower and all the wonderful gifts. Take care.

    Good for you for being active while pregnant. But remember if you need to slow it down a little to help keep the baby in - then you should. Once the little one is in your arms you can do as many workouts and challenges as you want. Easy walking though is good for everyone. Have a great time at your baby shower. emoticon
