About 2 1/2 weeks ago I was on bedrest for just 5 days, and since then I've stopped exercising and not doing very much in the way of errands either. I'm afraid that I'm losing all endurance I've managed to maintain/build up and I know that being physically active is good for labor, but I don't know where to draw the line as far as not overdoing it.
My belly tightens up or has just those tightening (not too painful) contractions as soon as I start walking. My low ab muscles & general groin area is so sore (maybe from little contractions going on?). My belly is so big, out there, and I'm short. I just don't know if these means I should sit around all day or just keep doing my usual, even though it's physically uncomfortable. ...and I just get tired so easily, and I wonder how much of that is from my lack of activity the last few weeks, and how much is from just being pregnant. Oh, and I don't want all of this non-exercise to affect my blood pressure. I'm thinking about going to the pool today...but I'm a little hesitant, because I ended up with preterm contractions last time I tried swimming. (not immediately after though, so maybe it's not related)
Sorry for the ramble. Wondering what you ladies think.
