I don't want to sit on my butt and be a lump for the next nine months, so I opted to invest in a prenatal workout video. Used from Amazon means a whopping $8 w/shipping for a prenatal yoga video.
I'm excited for it to arrive in a week or so so I can start working out again (especially since I ate that pizza)! Up until I got my + on that first HPT, I used to do Tae Bo off and on, but I'm guessing that's probably a bit too high impact for baby. I mean, don't get me wrong, I still wasn't at my goal weight. Over the summer, through diet and exercise, I managed to lose 20 pounds and I've just kind of plateaued since then. So my pre-pregnancy weight was 205. Not a prime weight by any means, but still a few thousand pounds lighter than a beluga whale! In other words, am I in the best shape of my life kicking off this pregnancy? No. But I don't look like this either:
I'm going to do my absolute best to make sure that Stick gets all the proper nutrition that s/he needs during these next 36 weeks though, and hopefully, I won't look quite like the picture above when it's all over. =] My plan is to post weekly belly pics to document the progress of Stick's growth (you can continue to compare me to the beluga whale if you'd like . . . warn me if the pictures start looking too similar!). And, since today marks four weeks, I will be posting one today. Obviously, you can't really see anything (besides the pizza!), but it works as a good starting point to gauge to later on. =] You'll have to check back in a few hours to see it though, because I'm going to give that pizza a chance to digest before I humiliate myself too badly!
