Shoes: c/o Rack Room Shoes
My pregnancy and labor with Charlie and Walker were so different from each other. I had a miscarriage before Charlie, so during my pregnancy with him, I barely moved. I was still teaching, but the extent of my exercise routine was (maybe) a walk once a week. I was terrified to move. I thought anything I did would hurt him.
I was in labor with Charlie for 24 hours and I pushed for 1.5 hrs. That's a longggggg timmmmeeeee.
With Walker, I was chasing around a baby (the boys are 19 months apart), I was working out several times a week, and I was teaching dance (and actually moving while I was teaching.)
I was in labor with Walker for 3 hours...first contraction to baby boy out. That's pretty quick.
I know...absolutely know...that the difference in the labors was the fact that I exercised throughout Walker's pregnancy. And just as a side note....with baby boy 3, I'm terrified I'm going to have him in the car on the way to the hospital. (I'm going to be that lady on the news.) Just with it being January and the possibility of snow/ice, and with this baby potentially coming even faster than Walker. I've been trying to show Noel Call the Midwife episodes so he can be a little prepared, but he's not going for it.
This pregnancy, I try...keyword try...to do cardio/weights at the gym on Monday, Body Pump on Wednesday, and Body Flow on Friday, with walks with the boys throughout the week. This bicycle ^ is my mom's new ride, and it is SO awesome!! (The boys thought it was pretty awesome, too.) :)
It's really nice having a cute pair of tennis shoes to work out in. It makes getting out to the gym or out for a walk a little easier. These pink ones from Rack Room Shoes are so fun!
I hope y'all have a great weekend...(I'm hoping for some perfect fall weather over here.)
