 3 Months Post Baby Body

This is my body after a week and half post baby… My stomach went down literally right after I had my son. I think that nursing is the main reason … I could feel contractions when my son nursed for the first few days which was so painful but worth it because my nurses were amazed at how quick my uterus went back to normal.

Here is a photo of my pre pregnancy body and my body at 31 weeks pregnant. I am excited to get back into shape  after our baby is born.

Here is my 10 week photo and my 31 weeks photo! What a huge difference 21 weeks can make. I cant believe how my body has changed over the past several weeks. I am loving all of my curves and I think my hubby does too;)

During my pregnancy I have been staying so active and have not let pregnancy stop me from doing much ( except anything that would be dangerous to our baby boy) I have had several questions on what workouts I do during my pregnancy and here are some of the workouts:
Walk/Jogging- 3-5 miles
Squats- 15 reps and 3-5 sets
Lunges- 50 and 3 sets
Push Ups- 25
Wall sits- 3 minutes 3 sets
Dirty Dog leg raises- 15 reps 3-5 sets
Calf raises- 30 and 3 sets
Elliptical- 40 minutes to a hour (if I am watching tv a hour)
I have slowed down since the 2nd trimester when I felt like I could do anything and really didnt feel pregnant at all. I am not really able to jog because it puts too much pressure on my bladder:/

I am 23 weeks and feel great! I love this stage of my pregnancy. I have been walking as much as I can and doing squats & lunges. I actually just read if you do squats throughout your pregnancy it helps open your pelvis so you can have a much easier delivery! Talk about motivation! I am going to try to do at least 5 sets when I work out now! Still gained 10 lbs hoping to only gain 10-15 more:)

Still trying to work out! I have been walking more than I have been running lately. I have gained 10lbs and this definitely makes running so much harder. I am have been short of breath too the extra weight makes working out much more difficult. I will still continue to try though! I know staying active keeps you healthy.

I have made it my goal to continue to work out through my entire pregnancy. I have not been eating as healthy as I should but have been staying active and I feel great! I want to slowly gain weight and am trying to get my body ready for labor. Its not easy especially since I have been working full time and still try to be a good wife to my hubby and make dinner. But its so worth it to maintain a healthy life style pregnant or not! The Dr told me I can continue to work out as I have been prior to being pregnant.   I havent noticed any changes really except now my bump is starting to get in the way a little bit. Other than that being 5'2 my Dr told me since I'm so petite I will show much faster and people will think I am further along than what I am. 

20 Weeks ( halfway there)

I was in the best shape of my life when I was eating right and consistently working out. I was not only running (something I love doing to relieve stress but also doing P90X which I swear by the program)  I love fitness, eating healthy and being in shape. I have been really busy with my new career and cant wait to start working out every day again. My new favorite exercise is yoga! I love it! You don't have to belong to a gym to stay in shape! Just stay consistent and you will see results!
