Sweaty Momma-To-Be

Amazingly, I had a great workout this past Sunday. I have mentioned before that during pregnancy, and especially towards the end of my third trimester, I have had some days where I feel a lot more energetic than others. Last week most of my workouts were a struggle. Saturday my bladder was killing me so much that I could barely get through an easy 20 minutes on the Arc Trainer.

Sunday, I tried again and felt so much better. Maybe it was my prenatal massage that I got the day before or the seriously huge (and not very healthy) dinner I had the night before? Perhaps I needed the extra calories to fuel a workout. :)

Monday morning I was exhausted and slept in instead of working out, but Tuesday I got back into the swing of things and did a halfway decent strength workout.

See, I really am all over the place! I’m just trying to do the best that I can and still hoping to get in 2-3 good workouts each week over the next few weeks. I’m sure there will be a few workouts where I am just punching the clock/moving/sweating a bit.

Here’s my workout from Sunday. I felt like a million bucks and it got me so excited for working out again post-baby.

Part 1:
Arc Trainer – Strength Program 5 minutes

Part 2:
One Arm Kettlebell Deadlifts – 5×5 (28K Kettlebell)
Overhead Presses – 5×5 (14K Kettlebell)

Part 3:
Arc Trainer – Strength Program 5 minutes

Part 4:
One Arm Kettlebell Swings – 5 minutes of 15 sec intervals (14K Kettlebell)

Part 5:
Arc Trainer – Strength Program 5 minutes

Part 6:
Kettlebell Snatches – 5 minutes of 15 second intervals (14K Kettlebell)

Loved this workout and will definitely be incorporating this post-pregnancy. It was a toughie and got me sweating like crazy. I was feeling strong doing deadlifts and pressing the 14K overhead at 9 months pregnant. Then I was rockin the swings and snatches at a good pace and more importantly, with good form. Felt so good.

I didn’t make a video for you all like I wanted (got in the groove and total forgot) so here’ s a quick belly shot of me yesterday…almost 38 weeks pregnant! Don’t mind the blurry pics or the wacky hair…took these quick from my computer.

I’m filling out this shirt a whole lot more now than I did at 23 weeks below (taken with a much nicer camera)!

What type of workouts make you feel awesome?


  1. Woot any day now! I’ve had three and the furthest I ever carried was 38 weeks 5 days! You look fab!

    My favourite workout while preggo (and still is) running! Good luck and have a safe and happy delivery!

    • Good for you with running! I had to stop bc I had to pee way too badly 3 seconds into running! :) We’ll see if I go early too! Sometimes I think I’m going into labor and sometimes I think he’s gonna take his sweet time and come in a month.

  2. You’re shirt is adorable!! You look amazing.
