36 weeks;yoga;

Thank you for all of the anniversary wishes! We went for a family dinner just for pizza on Friday and nice dinner just Bill and I last night. On Friday I put on our wedding video and our baby picture montage made me cry - and watching everyone walk up the aisle. Haha!

36 weeks - going much stronger than the last few weeks! This week my sleeping returned! I have been sleeping so nicely and it has been great. It makes such a difference! I also added in weight training and yoga, and the elliptical machine. The weight training has been awesome. I have this book:

and this log:


I've had them for 4 years and used them on and off but I'm using them now in addition to some saved magazine lifting moves that I've had for years in a book. It helps motivate and keeps things fresh!

Yesterday I did a vinyasa yoga class. I don't know the difference between all the yogas - I was into power yoga when I was doing it regularly. I am very very tight, so I want to get yoga back into the routine 2x a week. I was doing a video of it but it's so not the same! The elliptical machine - ehh. I dread that thing. It is so boring! I'll do some biking here and there on the stationary bike, but other than that, for cardio, swimming is my best bet right now and feels great!

Here's my 36 week belly shot below- only a few weeks to go. My concerns at this point are getting back into a nice routine with 2 babies and finding time for myself. I go to the doctor on Wednesday and see if anything is going on! I'm good to wait 4 weeks now that I am sleeping and not sick!


I think compared to with Nick that I'm carrying higher! (see Nick in belly below)
I still have no idea boy or girl!

  1. So glad you feeling better and enjoying the yoga. So glad you've been getting some good sleep too - quite jealous! Good luck with your appointment. I have one on Wed too if I'm still waiting to try and move things on a bit.

    You do look a bit higher, but the photos are diff angles so it is hard to tell.

    Take care,
    Kaz

  2. Glad you're sleeping better again! That makes a huge difference.

    You look great and it does look as though you're carrying higher -- as to whether or not that means anything, I haven't a clue.

  8. I started sleeping really well right before I delivered, I think it naturally occurs. Your body knows that the baby is coming soon and that you NEED every SECOND of rest you can get (especially with 2!). Maybe its a sign LO will be nice to you and not keep you waiting any longer than necessary ....

  9. My OB-GYN said the other day that women, such as yourself, tend to bounce back a lot quicker and with more energy because you started with a good fitness level and then maintained that throughout. You should be SO proud of where you are!
    I went swimming this morning - the 5 minutes of that 5.30 am wake up are totally worth feeling great the rest of the morning :)

  12. 36 weeks already! (though it likely does not feel like "already" to you.)

    I think your bump looks great!

  14. That's great that you're sleeping better! You'll be nice and ready for baby :-) You look awesome.
    You'll get into a routine with 2 in no time. Remember how much infants sleep for the first few months - that's helped me find time for big sister and some "me" time too.
    I started using a workout log right after the baby was born - it's awesome to look back and see progress!
