I'm still going to Pilates once a week but not doing any of the exercises in between classes. I had such good intentions, sigh. Until 36 weeks I was still walking, but down to a half mile a day. O.o so little! Still under 200 pounds, but just barely. Last time I got to 196 and I'm at 190 now. My weight goals are a) under 200 and b) less than my husband. Mostly I had exercise goals, and I'm sad that I didn't keep up the walking.
However, I have shit hips, and the Pilates has sincerely helped. Last time it really affected my labor when my hips gave out (uterine contractions are about a 7 on my pain scale - hips are still firmly a 10) and I ended up with an epidural (after 46 hours of labor). While I am actually far more open to an epi this time than last (I was sobbing and apologizing to my husband and baby last time), I am really hoping that the core work I have done over the past couple years will help me have a natural labor this time. We'll see...
