Well it’s official; my running days are over until after Peanut is born. After several more attempts, it’s become quite apparently my bladder just can’t handle the pressure. I am sooooooo sad. My goal was to run well into my third trimester.
I’ve tried not drinking any liquids and running, going to the bathroom immediately before getting on the treadmill, doesn’t matter. As soon as my foot hits the belt a few times, I immediately have to rush off to the bathroom. The baby must be right on my bladder. Luckily I can make it on the elliptical for about a half hour before I have the same problem. Must be because I’m not pounding like I do when I run. Looks like its elliptical and stationary biking for me for the remaining five or so months.
My prenatal yoga class starts this week but unfortunately I’ll be missing my first class because I’m traveling to South Carolina for work. I’m also looking into water classes. I think if I had classes to go, I’d be way more likely to actually get my butt to the rec. center and into the pool. I HAVE to start swimming again, especially if running is out. Any options to keep me in shape while pregnant, I’m all over.
