I had never heard of this either. Where did you learn it, because that's very interesting.
Started making a greater effort to at least walk more this week. (*yay!*) After my last MW appointment (which was my first), I admitted to my lack of exercise this pregnancy. It's just so hard to find time between part time WOHM (with a long commute), dd, the house, and dh (my first child
). Besides, I'm more of a yoga/ swimming kind of exercise person -- none of which is either available to me right now (a pool or quiet time). BUT, dh and I have been attending Sat. morning Tai Chi, so all is not lost. I just have problems finding time to practice the poses.
Funny how someone also put in this one:
|-try not to sit in reclining chairs or lean back too much to try and shift baby from breech, keep baby head down. sit on exercise ball!
I've also just naturally started to find ways to sit more upright. Of which, I'm at a desk most of the day. Can anyone recommend a pillow shape or something to help me sit up properly? While ergonomic and comfortable, our desk chairs seem to induce a reclining position, along with the lumbar style seats on my commuter train and car...
Oh, how about kick counts? Anyone else suppose to be doing those yet?
