So, I think I just needed a 'blah' week. I had an encouraging midwife appt this last week. Encouraging in that she said, "Yes, that is normal!" Basically, this pregnancy has felt like the 3rd trimester in many ways for a while. The feeling of carrying a bowling ball resting between your legs and fairly intense and regular Braxton Hicks have been a regular part of my life. I just feel so much more uncomfortable with this one than the others and it is just my multiple pregnancies finally taking effect.
I did a light weight, pilates workout on Monday and ran 2 miles on Tuesday. The rest of the week was shot because of preparing to travel and then traveling down to So. Cal for a wedding. However, I feel encouraged and motivated again, and that is what matters.
Katie, like you, I have to take a break the day after (even if I walk or go to church). Any activities that involve me being on my feet for a considerable amount of time greatly intensify the above symptoms for me. But a day of rest helps minimize things again.
