Ok sorry in advance for the long post but I just need a rant.
I’m about 17 w 5 days. For the whole pregnancy Iv been off work due to covid (my bar/restaurant had been closed) . It’s been a blessing really as iv been so nauseous and exhausted and iv literally not done anything other than sit on the couch and small bits of house work. I wake up feeling not too bad and mange to do a few things in the mornings eg. A short dog walk, vacuum or washing etc. But by midday I start feeling drained and usually nausea kicks in. So I eat and then I’m on the couch for the rest of the day. Sometimes I nap but I mainly watch tv and im in bed by 9/9:30 most nights. I wake up around 4 times a night to change position, drink water or pee, I wake up around 6:30/7am and the same type of day starts all over. 😞
Today I thought 💭…. right , that’s enough so I got up at 7am , washed my face , dressed, ate breakfast, brushed my teeth, swept my kitchen floor and thought I’d start my pregnancy yoga 🧘🏼♀️classes I signed up to. Iv never really done yoga much but thought it’s a gentle way to get moving.
I’m a slim 34 year old who used to dance professionally from the ages 12-22 and I’m now a child’s ballet teacher part time but I’m really not fit and healthy as I hardly break a sweat teaching small children. So I joined the online yoga classes at a medium beginner level and omg 😳…. I really struggled. I feel so weak it’s unreal. I guess sitting on my butt for 4 months has wasted what little muscle and strength I had. I did a 30 mins session and now feel like I could go back to bed! My limbs feel like so heavy I’m that exhausted. It wasn’t a hard session or too fast but holding those poses etc really killed me ! What has happened to me ! 😬🥱
Rant over ! Thank you for reading if you got this far I just can not believe how weak I feel right now! Iv sat (on the couch again) for the last 30/40mins after the session , like a zombie 🧟♀️
