I'm not walking much at all -- I was really hoping to walk more, but it's too cold out for me
Yesterday DH and I went shopping, a few errands and then full out grocery shopping to make sure we have enough to tide us over for a while after LO gets here... and my hips were achy (more than usual)!! Today I am definitely feeling more swollen and just tired.
I have my dr. appt today... so we'll see if I've progressed from the 1.5cm I was last week!
I have been walking about 2 miles at the gym 3-4 days per week throughout my pregnancy so I don't know if walking is going to help me reach delivery any earlier. But, on the positive side, I feel like all the walking (and the 1 day of yoga and 1 day of strength training per week) has helped keep me pretty mobile throughout the pregnancy. My pace has really slowed down these last 2 weeks but I also agree with CJD -- I recommend anyone to keep walking (if you can).
DChunt09:Wishing I could walk more. Bed rest for this mama!
Walk about a mile a day with the dogs, and on days I feel better, I do the elliptical too. However, since he started dropping, all has become more painful!
DChunt09, didn't know you were on bedrest! The end is near!!! Sorry the Heels are probably letting you down!
I try to keep it moving, but when i get walking i start contracting, which is good but then it promptly stops. So now that i got the Dr's "when ever he's ready" nod, walking here i come!!! I just need DH with me so he doesn't panic and some one can watch the clock!
Though realistically its probably just wishful thinking...
