CrossFit, Pregnancy, and some other random thoughts

A boy! January 24, 2011

Filed under: Pregnancy — Jennie Yundt @ 5:08 pm

It isn’t possible to be more excited than I am right now! We are just over 20 weeks pregnant, and our ultrasound revealed that we are having a boy! Bill was all about “we’ll be happy no matter what”, but I definitely wanted a boy, and so did he. Katelyn on the other hand, only wanted a girl. We brought her with to the ultrasound, and when the tech told us it was a boy Kate immediately went into spoiled 12yr old mode. It was ugly. She was crying, yelling and being incredibly rude. Ugh.

Despite the fact that she was a total poop, we are super excited for our news. I think Kate will come around eventually.

I worked out this morning, and it felt pretty good. I’m still only at about 75% intensity. Carrie even looked at me this morning and said, “What are you waiting for?” Good question my friend. I’m waiting my customary 30 seconds between rounds so I don’t die. I’m SUPER easily winded now. I can’t WAIT to see how fun metcons will be in a few weeks! The workout was a 12:00 amrap of 12 sdhp’s and 15 push-ups and all my sdhp’s were unbroken. I’m pretty happy about that. I got just 3 reps shy of  6 rounds. What’s odd is that push-ups give me weird ab cramps. During the push-ups I feel weird cramps in my lower abs. Throughout the whole day today I’ve been kind of achy and weird in the belly. Who knows.

We have our 2nd prenatal appointment tomorrow and I have to get on the scale. GULP. Not excited about that ONE BIT. Is it nuts that I’m considering fasting before the appointment so I don’t get scale shock??

 

Make way! January 19, 2011

We are now in our 21st week of pregnancy, and everything is going pretty well. For a while my skin thought I was 16 years old, but (knock on wood) that seems to be passing. Phew. I’m more tired than I’d like to be at this stage. I guess I don’t feel like I should need a nap every day. I’ve managed to make it a couple days w/o the nap, but by 8:15PM I’m ready for bed. Ugh. Is this to prepare me for the perpetual exhaustion of having a newborn? Sigh…

 

At the 20 week mark, my workouts have definitely started to suffer. I thought I’d be able to do cool, fun things like Kettle bell swings for my whole pregnancy, but that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. I swung that bitch about 10 times the other day, and I thought my abs were going to explode. My midwife doesn’t want me doing anything that involves “bouncing”, so box jumps and double unders are off limits. Burpees haven’t been put on the “no” list, but they sure are uncomfortable. Baby sure doesn’t like the motion of getting down and up! Something about tucking my legs back under me gets uncomfortable in  my lower abs.

 

I’ve gained 10lbs so far, which is just about what I expected. It scares me to death that some websites are telling me that I’ll gain a pound a week from here on out. Um, excuse me? You mean to tell me that you think I’ll put on ANOTHER 20 pounds!? You’re NUTS! I mean….if I gain another 20lbs, how am I supposed to keep doing pull-ups!?

 

This Saturday is our ultrasound, and I’m SO excited! I have decided that regardless of her reaction, Katelyn should be there. Just about every person I talk to seems to think that she’ll come around and be happy regardless of the baby’s sex. Being there to witness the ultrasound might make things seem a little more “real” to her. Maybe she’ll even start keeping her room clean. (not likely)
