Ok, so I’m 2 days shy of 36 weeks, but close enough right?
This pregnancy has definitely taken it’s toll on me compared to my first. With my first, I never felt pregnant or had any real symptoms. This second pregnancy has me actually counting down the weeks until our little girl arrives.
I have been so exhausted that I haven’t kept up with much writing. Between chasing around a 2 year old and making sure I get my workouts in, all I’ve wanted to do is sleep these past couple months.
Sadly, my workouts stopped about 3 weeks ago due to developing carpal tunnel from this pregnancy. I have to say that I feel for anyone who has this that’s not from pregnancy. I’m told that it should resolve itself shortly after giving birth, so I’m hoping for the best. My running has come to an end also as of last week. I made it through a 1 mile run and 1 mile walk, but the run did me in and left me pretty sore. Our little one has been head down since 32 weeks and getting lower, so it’s not very comfortable anymore. I’ll be sticking to walks until I deliver, but wishing I could run because our weather has finally cooled off by 20 degrees and it’s beautiful outside.
The carpal tunnel makes sleeping awful and pretty much doing anything during the day. Even just opening jars hurts my wrist. I have to wear wrist braces at night, but it’s pretty hard to wear them and play with a 2 year old all day. On top of that, this week I’ve developed some nice nerve pain from sleeping on my side. I am NOT a side sleeper. I’d rather have the hip pain from side sleeping that I had during the second trimester than a pinched nerve. Needless to say, I hope these next 4 weeks, give or take a few, go by quickly.
I’ll finally get around to a short recap on completing the Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare Challenge while pregnant soon since I’m not working out every morning.
Enjoy Your Adventure,
