Less painful and more blissful...?
Well - it's actually getting *harder* now, to be truthful. I'm getting 'really for-real' pregnant, if that makes any sense.
(The sixth month was really cool... I was showing, the baby was moving, but the discomfort was minimal and I could do most of the things I did pre-pregnancy.)
Driving in the bucket seets of my Mustang is getting a wee bit ridiculous - my baby likes to crawl / scrunch up under my ribs, and it makes driving uncomfortable to downright painful at times.
I am starting to experience more back pain, and some swelling of my hands and feet at times.
I also notice that my walking is slowly but surely turning to a bit of a waddle.
On the other hand, even though I've chubbed up a bit, I've been running throughout my pregnancy (walking and swimming, too!), and I think that has helped a lot. I get out there and work up a sweat and wear myself out a bit, which always makes me feel better in the end, pregnant or not.
In the last few weeks I've slowed down A LOT (now my pace is more like a pre-pregnancy 'jog' than a run), and I find it harder to make a good stride - my feet seem to be shuffling rather than running. I also need to figure out some sort of belly support, as it's getting heavy and a bit uncomfortable with the up-and-down motion of running.
But I really do think that staying as active as possible - even through the little pains and aches - is KEY!
