Life during the 27th week has been challenging. Between School picking up quite a bit and Baby Nuunie becoming more and more active, I've had to take it easy this week so far.
At this point, carrying Baby Nuunie has meant that I've gained an additional 22 lbs (same as E at this point) which seems to be mainly residing in my stomach. I definitely feel like I'm carrying a medicine ball under my shirt, except this medicine ball kicks and punches. Oh wait, I think I've just invented a new piece of gym equipment..don't take my idea. ;) I also have noticed that Baby Nuunie has a tendency to sit on the right side of my stomach which means I constantly feel off balance and I can feel my back trying to adjust for the shift to equilibrium.
As a result of all the weirdness going on, I had to change my workout yesterday drastically to virtually eliminate most things that would require my back to be actively engaged or would require my right leg, which was constantly falling asleep, no thanks to baby nuunie to be more of an inactive player in the workout. So...
Followed up with some good stretching and yoga poses and that's about all I could do.
I know not to get discouraged. Some weeks will be better than others and now that the 3rd Trimester is here, I know there might be more bad weeks than good weeks but this is a lifestyle and working out is my outlet. Having a fitpregnancy is extremely important to me so I'll continue to workout through this last trimester.
Next week is also the glucose test...if history repeats itself, I'll probably fail. Oh joy!
Ok, it's late and I'm beat. Good night!
