What I Did: Mish Mash of Activity

Today is Saturday...already! This week has flown by! My due date is next week today! ACK! So crazy. Could happen any day now...or any day after too. Though now I'm more leaning towards wanting to go early not because I'm sick of being pregnant but I'm so excited to meet my little guy or girl. Anyhow here's what I did to induce labour...I mean to stay active ;)

Warm up: 
About 10 minutes of my MuTu system stretches and core exercises that include squats, some bands, ball between the knee squeezes and other such exercises.

First I did a 20 minute walk. I know, it sounds lame but I really enjoy just being able to get out (except for all those stupid mini flies...the downside of living near a lake I guess). As light as walking is I can see how it can help get contractions going, I tend to feel extra pressure down low in my belly almost immediately!
Then after I got home I did Tiffany Rothe's ten minute "Pretty Positive Pregnancy" toning video here;
Total Time: about 40 minutes
HR: after the video it was 130-140 and I assume near the same during my walk
Sweat'o'Metre: I got the body temp up during the walk and video but not much sweat
Burn'o'Metre: biceps and shoulders man, she kills me in this video I've gone from cans of beans to cans of soup :P
