Working Out While Pregnant... with your husband. :)

I got a Lindsay Brin workout set for pregnancy. I really like it (and I got it somewhere else if anyone wants to buy it -- I can email you the store -- they were great, and actually have a lot of great pregnancy DVD's). It has one DVD for each trimester and it has a cardio and a yoga on each DVD -- totaling about 1 hour of working out (but I NEVER do cardio and yoga together, because I am lazy). I think it's important to have pregnancy DVD's for working out at this time. I know that some yoga poses are not that great when you're pregnant and I enjoy how they work certain parts that tend to get more tense or need to get stronger as your belly grows. I can't stand doing her cardio all week though, so I supplement that with some Denise Austin (whom I also hate -- anyone else seeing a trend here?). I do notice it when I don't work out, and I really need to make sure I'm doing the yoga twice a week because it does make me feel so much better.

This morning (HAPPY VETERANS DAY -- which isn't celebrated in Utah, so it's just exciting that we get it out here -- kind of like a freebie) Drew finally bowed to my wishes and did yoga with me. He's always complaining about some ache or pain and I think yoga would help him a lot. He was even a good sport to do the prenatal yoga that is specificially for women. He really enjoyed flexing his "bra muscles" and losening his hips for childbirth. :)

Anyway, just wanted to say Yoga is tolerable (and I am a HUGE fan of it for pregnant women -- I recommend it to ALL of my patients), and my husband is a winner. And I'm sure he feels vibrant today after our little workout. Also, we are going to the dentist today so I can get all tense and un-do all the stretching I did during yoga. Does anyone know where you can get some cheap mexican Zoloft that is OK to take during pregnancy (I hate the dentist, in case you can't tell -- I'd rather get a pap smear, actually).
The end.

  1. Good for Drew. Maybe he can have the next child now if his birthing hips are all ready to go.

    Good luck at the dentist. I hate him too.
