RE: Comfort Q for 3rd trimester moms!
Hi! Thanks for asking! I'm 35 weeks and one day along...and feeling pretty darned good!
For the past few weeks I was exhausted, not sleeping, achey, swollen, etc etc, but THIS week (so far) I feel totally great. Energetic, sleeping soundly (I didn't even get up to use the bathroom this week!), lots of stamina, etc!
I haven't needed to take naps yet. And my breathing is still totally comfortable. I have noticed that I have to eat very small meals now, which is fine, but I can still shave, tie my shoes, and (with some difficulty) paint my toenails.
My workouts have dropped down to one hilly 5 mile powerwalk per week. But I hope to increase that as soon as I get more time during the week.
Oh- one negative is my verrry swollen ankles, feet and hands. I went up a shoe size and can no longer wear my rings :(
I agree, I'm satisfied with my pregnancy too! I think the farther along I get, the less I worry about how much worse it'll get and the more I realize how lucky I am! Keep me posted on how you're doing!
5 weeks to go!!
