    Exciting time, isn't it? Had any sonograms lately? (I always consider them sort of a fun way to "visit" the baby. Like a prison visit!)

    ... 9 hours of sleep?! How are you managing that? Do you sleepwalk to go pee?

    Man, all that bacon sounds good. Wish I liked it. Everybody else seems to; I must be missing out!

    No sonograms since the 20 week visit where they checked that the baby was okay. All my visits since then have just consisted of them measuring externally to make sure she is growing.

    9 hours straight is RARE! I usually have to get up but lately I've been trying to drink a lot of water during the day and then not drink anything 2 hours before bedtime. That helps...

    It's tempting to limit water intake before bed, but I find I don't really feel right if I do that. Then again I love water.

    They're kicking it up a notch with us -- starting next week we'll have weekly quick sonos to measure and check fluid levels. They didn't do that with DD #1 though -- they keep telling me not to worry about the contractions, but then mentioned the sonos in that context, so seems like that's what is making them extra cautious.

    You and your exercise have inspired me to get my pool stuff together again. I haven't actually _gone_ to the pool but I plan/want to, and that's the first step. If I could just get myself to do a couple times a week before Baby Day, my abs will be that much better able to deal with it post c-section (or so I imagine.) As it is I'm far too whiny and chilly to go walking like we used to so... we'll see how that goes. The pool is heated, which is nice.

    What type of bar are you using for rows? (assuming you don't mean rowing machine)

    I've been reading a lot about DIY gym equipment lately in relation to rows. Seems like that might be a good gateway exercise to pull-ups later.

    It is a rowing machine I use. Rowing for calories is just a way that I can count something for the 1 minute interval of that workout.

    Rowing has been a great substitute for running. I can still run but sometimes it is uncomfortable on the bladder!

    Another good gateway into pull-ups is getting some iron woody bands. I used these on my pull-up bar prior to getting my pull-ups. They help take off some weight while you build up your upper body strength...

    Yep, have some bands now. Haven't tried them yet but I expect they'll help!
