So I've been really good about exercising throughout pregnancy (mostly because I don't want to be good about eating, haha), but the last couple weeks have been a trial!
During the majority of my pregnancy I was working out on a bike and an elliptical since it was low impact, running made my heart rate way to high! But at about 32 weeks I lost access to these machines and instead just had a treadmill. I did some light jogging for about a week but it put WAY too much pressure on my pelvis and I was in pain all the time. So now I am just walking a LOT. Last week this was fine, but this week I'm having the same kind of pain as when I was jogging....like my baby's head is going to rip my cervix in two, ouch! My baby is pretty low and I am 1cm dilated, though I'm not sure if that makes any difference. I would just call it quits on exercising all together, but I still have a month to go and let's face it, I still want my Ben & Jerry's. :)
What have you experienced as far as exercising goes? Is there such thing as walking too much? Does pelvic pain hurt the baby or just me? Have you found a cardio activity (other than swimming) that works well for you?
