Week 38

Busy and active week. I lost a few pounds, but the baby is still growing (and kicking) fine so…. A couple of contributing factors: 1) super active and 2) change in diet. I discontinued dairy, eggs and peanuts since those are foods my son is allergic to, I figure that will give us a good starting point to see if this child has food allergies or not; my breast milk will already be free of those allergens by the time she is born. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the next week with the weight loss and to see how big this second child ends up being at birth.

Day 1: 7:15 AM 15 minute brisk walk, 45 minute moderate walk and leg stretches, 15 minute brisk walk.

9:30 AM short walk to playground and back (10 minutes each way)

3:30 PM 1 hour walk to Brooklyn Heights and back while pushing stroller and sleeping Mateo.

Day 2: 6:05 AM  10 minute brisk walk, 2 sets of lunges, 2 sets pushups, 2 sets of deep knee squats,

8:10 AM 15 minute brisk walk home followed by 15 minute brisk walk at 8:40 and another 15 minutes at 10:00

Later in afternoon: 20 minute moderate walk with Mateo on scooter, more moderate walking and running errands, followed by 15 minute brisk walk (over 1 1/2 hours walking at a moderate to brisk pace–no wonder I’m not gaining weight anymore, but I feel good and strong and the baby feels strong inside of me…)

Day 3:  7:10 AM 15 minute brisk, 35 minute moderate with leg stretches, 15 minute brisk walking. I used the pedometer and it recorded 6166 Steps!

12:00 PM  25 minute speed walk. I also wore the pedometer but with a different pair of pants and it only recorded 50 steps, obviously inaccurate.

2:00 PM 40 minute moderate walking while pushing stroller and running errands, again the pedometer didn’t record anything.  I am doing lots of nesting, and buying supplies for the birth and for after the birth, that’s why I’m running so many errands.

Day 4: 6:00 AM 17 minute not so brisk walk, 10 minute walk, 1 hour walk (with errands across Park Slope),

Super tired the rest of the day. I had only slept 4 1/2 hours of sleep the night before and I just couldn’t do anything.

Day 5: Ran to and around Cadman Plaza. Brought Mateo with me, he rode his scooter and I ran. It worked better than I expected, except I would have liked to run one more loop, but he was too tired. ran 3 loops then down the hill to the playground where I did two sets of pushups and two sets of pull ups for the upper back using the playscape.

Lot’s of cleaning of the house.

4:00 walked around Fort Greene Park and to restaurant. Then 15 minute walk pushing stroller, arms super tired while pushing stroller. (Lot’s of Braxton Hicks contractions between 6:00 and 10:00 pm)

Day 6:  Lot’s of household cleaning, mopping, laundry. 3:00PM  20 minute walk to Fort Greene Park, various activities, including sprinting, climbing, pushing swings, carrying a stroller up steps while holding Mateo’s hand so he wouldn’t slide, then 10 minute walk to restaurant and 40 minute walk home after eating at restaurant.  Now when I get the Braxton Hicks contractions I need to slow my pace, even if I’m just walking.

Day 7:  Calf cramps during the night.  7:30 AM  3 sets of lunges, 2 sets of push ups on knees 10 repetitions, but not too low since my belly was hitting the floor, 2 sets of rows (11 pounds), shoulder flys and rotator flys.

8:50 AM  12 minute super brisk walk, 10:10 40 minute walk and errands, but mostly walking briskly.

5:00 10 minute walk to park and around park and back 10 minutes
