|Ready for work at 34 weeks|
How we moved: Being back into a routine plus some nice weather was a good combo for me. I did something every day but Friday, totalling 5:40 of exercise- less than half of a big week for Old Kate, but not bad by my current standards :) This is how it broke down:
Tuesday: 7km walk along the river path
Wednesday: 30 minute swim
Thursday: 25 minute walk and 1 hour of preggy yoga
Saturday: 40 minute walk
Sunday: 50 minute walk
Monday: 55 minute swim
Where we went: Putaruru (see above).
What we wore: Work clothes- scraping the bottom of the barrel a bit now, so it's lucky I only have 3 weeks to go!
What we bought/got given: Not much actually, apart from some PJs and things for my hospital bag. I was a bit slack. But we did a bit more building and organising, and I did a little more list writing so I'm not TOO panicked. Only about 85% panicked!
What changed: I'm slowing down more, and struggling a lot more with sleep since last week. I also may be having more braxton hicks- but it's not always easy to tell the difference between them and some of Chip's big press-y movements! And lastly, my feet have grown at least half a size. It's not just swelling (though that's started too)- the hormone relaxin causes the ligaments all over the body to, well, relax. This includes the ligaments holding all the foot bones together. Relaxed ligaments = spreading feet. And it's permanent! Not what this already wide-footed girl wants to hear!
Exciting moments: It was actually a bit of a stressful week. Nothing major, but I worried about things, struggled to get back into work, and had a couple of minor sads. But the first of my February Forum babies was born, as well as the first two of my ante-natal babies! The list of babies between now and Chip is getting ever shorter!
What I miss: Sleeping on my back. And being able to shave my legs/tie my shoes.
