Nope I'm not prego (thank goodness). But in the past few days I've had some funny things happen with working out and pregnancy. I got the following message from a dear friend that is currently expecting who was around during a few of my pregnancies.
I thought I would tell you that you have been in my dreams for the last couple of nights. You have been there with a pregnant belly while being my trainer and telling me "work harder, its good for your baby, it will help you during labor, let's go"! I love that even though I wish I where able to go to your spin class, I at least get to have you motivate me in my dreams!
And then when I was at Runner's Corner I saw one of my old "regulars" from spin a few years back. She is about 6 months prego. While we were chatting she said "every time I think I can't do it I remember you up on your bike the entire pregnancy working out so hard and kicking all of our butts". I told her that I just looked like I was working hard because of how out of breath pregnancy made me :)
I did workout through all 4 of my pregnancies. I even taught spin on my 3rd's due date - since she decided to come a few days late! I couldn't run after about 4 months with any of them because it hurt my back too much. But I taught spin through all 4, walked, lifted and did the elliptical all the way to the bitter end. I know that working out regularly helped me physically and emotionally. I was strong when I went into labor and I'm pretty sure that helped me get those kids out faster :)
