I am also incredibly inflexible, specifically in my hamstrings! I started getting into yoga with a fertility practice in September and that's poured over into a prenatal practice. I can't recommend Shiva Rea's Prenatal Yoga enough. It's really gentle but still challenging for beginners like us.

It includes squats, kegels, core strengtheners - all the goodies moms to be need for a good and healthy birth. She has models for modifications for both the second and third trimesters which can be used in the first trimester if you are inflexible!

I also found some prenatal cardio workouts online but I haven't tried any yet.

I think the biggest piece of advice I've been seeing is that you can add activity, but nothing super strenuous where you're stressing your body out in ways it's not used to. I lift 30-50 pounds at work all the time, and walk about 20k steps on the days I'm there. My whole shift I average 90-100 BPM. My midwife says that's ok because I'm used to it. But if someone who averages 5k steps a day and doesn't lift anything got pregnant and started a fitness routine that upped their step count by 15k, had a bunch of lifting and elevated their heart rate for 6-8 hours the doctor would say absolutely not. It's a shock to the system.

Mostly I've seen that you should do walking, yoga, running if you ran before the pregnancy and light lifting - they have some recommendations for lifting in What to Expect When You're Expecting.

Hope that helps!

My husband was excited and wanted to tell his dad as soon as possible. I bought him this book The Expectant Father: The Ultimate Guide for Dads-to-Be and he is really enjoying it. He says that he likes that it explains what's happening for the mother, but also talks about the father-to-be's feelings. Im relieved because reading a few chapters has convinced him we should wait until after our doctors appointment to tell people, even family.

That said, he did spill the beans to my friend this weekend though by asking if I was drinking decaf coffee, which she told me later was a dead giveaway! Luckily she is my best friend and has two kids of her own, and I explained to her that we haven't even told our parents. So our secret will be safe with her until February.

I got these nursing tank tops in the mail yesterday and they're amazing! So comfortable and they fit really well, much better than the one I got at Target. I'm a DD and I was about 130 lbs before pregnancy, and a medium fits me great! Just letting everyone know just in case you still needed to buy something for nursing 馃憤

I fall asleep on my left side, but always end up sleeping in my back. My OB said I shouldn't sleep on my back after 20 weeks, but I've talked with others about it and they said that if it hurts or your legs get numb, you're likely going to wake yourself up and move yourself anyway. It hasn't been uncomfortable for me to sleep on my back though. However, I recently bought this wedge pillow to help me not sleep directly on my back, but also as a good belly support. So far, I use it mainly as a belly support and I feel like I sleep better with it. I think it's definitely worth the money and it doesn't take up the whole bed.

I'm a big fan of Expecting Better, as the author looks at the actual scientific evidence behind most common pregnancy do's and don'ts.

The summary of her section on fish says:

> Mercury is bad for your baby. Omega-3 fatty acids are good for your baby. Fish contain both. Your best option is to try to pick fish with a lot of omega-3s and not a lot of mercury.

> The worst thing you can take from the mercury advice is the idea that you should avoid fish. Fish are great! People who eat a lot of fish have smarter kids on average, even with the greater mercury exposure. Try to pick smart, and learn to love sardines!

With this chart on fish choices.

I have these thicker thigh highs:

and these thinner ones:

I have pretty big calves (most calf-length boots don't fit) but i'm good with a medium. Just make sure they also compress your feet, so the blood doesn't pool there :/

You can probably just do knee length compression socks (my knees are the vein problem area, which is why i have to do the thigh highs) to help a bit. Amazon has a decent selection, and same prices as the more specialty stores.

It is common at this point, unfortunately, and they don't really worry about it unless your face starts swelling to my knowledge. My OB recommend these sexy thigh-high compression stockings. It takes a lot of effort to get them on and off but they do help with keeping the edema in check. She said to also watch salt intake and wear supportive shoes.

Ahh, what a unique nursery theme!!! I love the gears and blueprint ideas. Is there a specific kind of engineering you're going for (so far it sounds like mechanical)?

You could totally find or make an engineering-themed mobile to hang over the crib. Or write some physics equations at baby-level as if your kid has been writing them on the wall. Like this! And there's always this book for the bookshelf.

Your husband has good taste in books! I'm really enjoying Expecting Better right now.

I have a little wedge pillow I use between my knees. I didn't want to wrestle with some huge pillow, and I find most of my discomfort is my knees/hips which the wedge solves. Also sometimes I put it behind my back so I can "lay on my back" while still tilted to the side.

Tmi: also, wedges are great to put under your lower back for sex. Really helps move bump out of the way!

Edit: [the one I bought] (

My co-workers gave me this book. I will be getting a copy for my MIL as a lot of things kids wise has changed since her other grandchildren were babies.

u/courtbeautiful7 路 2 pointsr/Septemberbumpers2017

We got my MIL this book. Have NO idea how it is. But it has pretty high ratings on Amazon so we gave it a shot!
