So I went to bootcamp class yesterday and boy was it a hell of a workout, but I'm not really sure if I should be doing it or not in my third tri? It started off with just a ton of fast paced activites like squats and lunges and jumping jacks of various types. She did a lot of jacks that involved jumping up and clapping under your knees, etc. I just modified and did normal jumping jacks. When I felt like what they were doing was too tough, I just went back to squatting or jumping jacks. But should I be doing jumping jacks? I figure running moves the baby a lot, some jacks shouldn't hurt right? Then from there we did some weights, which was fine, then a circuit that involved about 30 steps set up in rows, we had to do things like hop over them or shuffle sideways over them. So, again hopping up and down, but not very high at all. We also skipped on the track, ran on the track and did side shuffles on the track. My heart rate was definately high the whole time, but I took a few more breaks than everyone else and drank a lot of water. Today I am sore as hell! Which feels good honestly, it's been awhile since I had a hard workout. But I don't want to be stupid, I know if I ask my doc, they will just tell me to take it easy. I'm thinking I will probably not do the class again until baby is here and switch to the weight lifting class that is afterwards, as it shouldn't be so jarring....thoughts?
Also if my due date is a Wed, is that Wed supposed to be 40 weeks on the nose? Meaning shouldn't my weeks change on Wed, I've been changing them on Friday. Picky I know, but I like to be exact when someone asks me how far along I am :)
