Self induced bed rest...

My body is officially slowing down.  C doesn't even enjoy going on walks with me anymore because I'm "so slow!"  Yesterday my body officially went kaput!  I decided to take Oliver on a nice long walk to the park, as it was a beautiful day.  I strapped my maternity belt on and headed out.  Once we reached the end of our street the sharp pains began.  I thought maybe my belt was too tight so I tried loosening it a bit, but they continued.  I know its ligament pains because the sharp stabbing pains run on the sides of my belly and in the front below my belly button.

We made it to the park regardless, and I decided to sit on a bench and rest a bit.  I did some push-ups and tricep dips (which I always do) on the bench, with lots of breaks in between, while Oliver and a friend ran around.  I had no pains while resting or while doing my little exercises.

Once we decided to start walking home the pains go progressively worse and it didn't help that I felt like my bladder was going to explode!  We made it home but I was in a lot of pain, so I decided to lay down for a bit.  Well that little bit turned into the rest of the day!  Every time I would stand up and either go to the bathroom or get a drink, etc., I would have the sharp pains!  I was on self induced bed rest the rest of the day.

My body can do yoga, but not walk.  It is officially telling me to SLOW DOWN!  As hard as that is, I have to listen... to keep my lil boys nice and snug!

Sounds painful - I'm so sorry! I'm glad you're listening to your body though and taking care of your boys!

Rest that body. It needs to not kaput for a couple of more months!!!

Yoga does rock, though.
