Hi Ladies, I'm struggling and I need your support. Before this pregnancy I was running 15 miles a week and had just completed my first half marathon. I had flat abs for the first time and I enjoyed working out and then I got pregnant and the sinus headaches that came along with it crushed my soul. I can play the blame game but I have gotten out of shape and now I'm 20 weeks... and I just feel completely disconnected from my body...I feel swollen and large and I had a great workout week last week. I did some pregnancy yoga and 2 runs! Which was huge because I hadn't been running since like 11 weeks. But my run last friday left me so sore in recovery that I didn't end up working out at all! I just come home from work and crash... I eat a huge dinner because I have eaten healthy all day and then go straight to bed. I feel like I have a devil on my shoulder saying " you're pregnant now is not the time to be stressed about getting workouts in" and then I hear another voice that says " You have worked so hard for this and labor is going to be a huge marathon and you need to be physically ready". On top of all of this guilt from both sides our cat has been puking up his food everyday and we were notified from the vet he may have heartworm ( he also has aids) and hes only 3 years old. I will find out the final verdict from a blood test monday if he has a mature worm or if its just food allergies( we have been struggling with this for two years and are now switching to kangaroo as his protein because it's suppose to help). Oo and my other cat that we have had for 13 years was diagnosed with a rare heart condition and will need an ultrasound in May to check and see if the medication is helping her. Even if the medication helps there is no cure because its genetic.
I'm a FTM and I need some help figuring out this new body. HELP!?
