Made it to 30 weeks. Not much has changed besides now waking up to go pee in the middle of the night up to at least two times now and what I would say are the usual third trimester complaints of acid re-flux, not being able to breathe, hard to get comfortable, and starting to get really tired. Here are my 30 weeks comparison photos.
At night I look a lot more pregnant than the picture on the right, but I take my bi-weekly photo first thing in the mornings for consistency. As you can see I am definitely carrying different this time than the first two. The top left photo is my first pregnancy, the bottom left is my second, and the right is my third. I look and feel like I am carrying higher this time. I don’t know if it is because my abs were a lot stronger before I got pregnant this time around or if working out is holding her up more, but I am thankful so far for not having too much pain when I walk around and for so far not losing motor skills in one of my legs. Although since she is higher, she is definitely a bigger problem than the other two were when it comes to trying to breathe.
Here is another front view from my second pregnancy at 30 weeks and my third at 30 weeks. I keep posting these because it is so interesting to me how different my body is carrying and you can really see it from these front views so far.
*Below is my workout schedule I have been working on.
I am now done with this workout routine I made for myself 26 weeks ago. Near the end it definitely got harder and I had to modify more and more, but it was a challenge that has felt worth the draining effort so far.
Above is my new workout schedule I have made myself for the remaining of this pregnancy. I got rid of the Saturday workouts to give myself more of a break. I also got rid of the P90X workouts completely. Those hour long workouts were beginning to become way too much. I kept the thirty minute Core De Force workouts for Mondays and Thursdays, leaving out the forty and fifty minute workouts out from that program on this schedule besides the one named Kickbutt, which is about forty minutes and is not too intense when the push ups are modified or excluded. I scheduled 21 Day Fix Extreme for only one day a week on Wednesdays instead of twice a week. Tuesdays and Fridays I added a program new to this pregnancy, but not to me, the simple 21 Day Fix. I plan to follow this schedule for 7 weeks if I can, but put in a week that I can take out if it begins to get too hard near the end of the 7 weeks. The week I put in to take out is week 6 with two plyometric workouts, since if the workouts in general are becoming too difficult I am pretty confident that the plyo workouts will be near impossible to complete.
After Those 6 or 7 weeks, I plan to finally slow down for the next 3 or 4 doing the stretching workouts I have written down and scheduled above to get ready for labor and to keep away from jumping around or anything like that so I don’t go into preterm labor. During those weeks though I still plan to do my cardio workouts like I have been doing throughout this pregnancy, but in February my walking up the stairs and running down will be changing to just walking stairs. My thirty minutes on the elliptical, half standing up and half sitting down, I do not plan to change yet, unless my knees or body need me to.
