Wow. Things are definitely getting into the homestretch now, as I discovered when I left my doctor appointment this week and realized I’d be back in two weeks instead of four. We also finished up our labor and delivery class with a tour of the hospital’s birthing and maternity center, and that’s when it really hit me that I am having a baby, and sooner rather than later. Crazy, crazy stuff.
As far as exercise this week, I was in a really good groove. I also spent the weekend in a workshop on teaching yoga to athletes, which included a bunch of (heavily modified) bonus yoga on Saturday. Surprisingly, I didn’t spend all of my free time sleeping. In fact, it appears that I no longer sleep between the hours of 3 and 6 a.m., which is incredibly frustrating. I’m trying to roll with it and will usually get up and read, knit and/or watch TV during those hours, but the truth is that I’d really, really like to just sleep through the night while I still can.
