So I did a weigh in this am. Today I am 8w1d and I am now under my pre-pregnancy weight. Attributed to severe MS I posted about in another thread and quite possibly actually getting enough exercise.
I also finally figured out how much I am walking. I am walking about 3-4 miles a day, its just broken up into 2 milers usually. Saturday when we went into town, I did 5 easy walking miles (had DD with me) and came home with a really sore and swollen ankle because I was not wearing walking shoes, I was wearing sandals. One day of limping around, one day of semi-limping and yesterday I could finally put my foot flat on the ground again. But because I was so sick, I was not going anywhere anyway. Yesterday I did a 2 miler and today a 2 miler, tomorrow I will be doing 4-5 miles as I have a dr appointment in town and Friday I have another 4 miles anticipated.
I guess, overall, I am not doing as badly as I thought. Although I should probably walk faster...not sure how fast although I know about the 10 sec rule. Acupuncturist recommends not walking "too fast" - they have a different set of cultural rules here for pregnant women and actually do not recommend any exercise for the whole pregnancy. Weird! I could not do that, I will be getting some serious stares when I am further along.
Not sure if I should be adding in any weights...that was the plan pre-pregnancy but not sure now. And I don't have any easy access to a gym here...it would have to be book-lifting! Or water bottle-lifting!
