I did it!
How I felt?
Compared to when I started, I felt like a different person. Yes I was dealing with typical third trimester tiredness, especially since the baby liked to sit very low, but as far as the lower back pain and the extreme sickness that was starting to rear its ugly head? They were both gone.
Heartburn lingered every now and then, but I could usually pinpoint it to diet; it was worse on days when I didn’t consistently wear the splint. The splint was wonderful but won’t rehabilitate the core without the program–they work together. My pelvic floor muscles were becoming stronger, and I was excited to see how that affected the big day to come!
While I had completed the six weeks, I decided to continue doing the exercises until the birth, practicing ones specifically geared towards the actual event. After the birth, I had my postnatal exercises ready-to-go and planned to follow-up with the Core Foundations comprehensive 8 week program.
The exercises have become second nature and fit into my usual routine. Returning to workouts through Fit2B has also been a joy. After learning everything I have, I tossed most of my other prenatal workout DVDs! Most are not diastasis-friendly.
When I started the prenatal program, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Knowing I didn’t want to continue getting sicker, and convinced that many of my symptoms were related to DR, I was willing to try anything. I’m thankful to The Tummy Team for creating this program so women suffering with many of the same symptoms might find relief.
If you’ve followed my journey, I hope it’s been helpful. As always contact The Tummy Team with any questions. They’re wonderful, helpful folks, who are eager to help.
