So. Pregnant.

I'm so pregnant. Like, so pregnant. I'm one day shy of 40 weeks, and somehow the days seem to be moving slower. Having lots of pre-labor symptoms (Braxton-Hicks, stuffy nose/sore throat, etc.), but no real action yet.

Here are a few random thoughts, in no particular order.

1. I took my last pregnant Zumba class at 38 weeks, and it was more fun than I thought it would be. I was worried that I would get too out of breathe but I was able to do almost everything. I say my "last" class purely because of scheduling and convenience... I actually did some Zumba on my own yesterday, checking out ZIN 60 (finally). I thought the first handful of songs were really good - love the classic choreo from Beto. Hopefully I'll check out the rest today.

2. I went for a walk yesterday and listed to a bunch of my Z songs. I was kind of worried that after not teaching for a couple of months I would forget everything. Nope, still got it, in my head at least! I'm definitely worried about learning new material with a newborn and limited brain capacity (hello, sleep deprivation!) but I hope it's not too much harder than it was pre-baby.

3. Aside from being very excited and anxious to meet our little girl, I'm really looking forward to getting back to a healthy routine. I have exercised pretty consistently throughout my pregnancy, but I miss running and setting challenging goals for myself. I miss marathon jam sessions and being able to push myself. It'll be nice to see the numbers on the scale start going on the opposite direction, too!

4.  One of my fears: not getting back into shape quickly enough to be the instructor I want to be. I worked so hard to be able to kill it for a whole hour long class, giving 150% of my energy (because let's be honest, if you only give 100% you get about 50% from your students) and doing it all with a smile on my face. I wonder how long it will take me to get back there physically, but also to have the same level of confidence in my teaching that I had before I took my body on this wild ride.

Is it just me, or can anybody relate to any of this?
