At 36 weeks pregnant I am pleased to have managed to keep up with my running and I am still managing around four short runs a week with Andrew. Our midwife is really happy about this and thinks it will help with a healthy labour.
I have, of course, put on a fair amount of weight over the past eight months and the thought of maintaining fitness levels and getting back into my pre-pregnancy shape is slightly daunting. However, I am feeling confident that if I listen to my body in the weeks and months following the birth I will be able to lose some excess weight and gain back some muscle tone in a healthy and sustainable way. If you have any tips on getting back your pre-pregnancy fitness let me know.
As I will be busy at home with a new baby and all the challenges that this will bring, most of my exercise will be done in my living room and in the Scottish rain which can be slightly demoralising sometimes.
