Pi, I can't believe you did that swim! The couple times I've tried swimming laps it was utterly exhausting. I felt like I needed to grab a kick board just to stay afloat through it all, but I was too embarrassed to grab one, lol. Way to go! Glad the contractions settled down, I'm sure that was a little nerve wracking!
Tutucrazy, my pubic bone has been more achey, too. I used to do awesome on the treadmill, and now I have to keep it down at or below a 2.8 speed with no incline, or it hurts to much. At least the elliptical is friendly to my pubic bone, but I'm starting to feel like I'm running out of good options. I showed up to the YMCA just in time to participate in a step aerobics class this week (which has been a really fun challenge in the past!) but decided it might hurt more than not, so I skipped it.
Amy May, I know what you mean - if I get into any sort of class, I tend to give it 100%, whether or not I'm hugely pregnant. ;) It really is hard to get your brain to give you permission to slow down and take it easy.
I've got a cold this week, and am feeling extra exhausted because of it. I'm trying to get to the gym 3x/week, and I've only gone once this week, and my plan was to go again on Friday and Saturday. Now I'm not sure if I should go ahead and follow through with that plan, or stay home and take it easy until I get better. WWYD?
