today i went to the gym for the first time in a week. My doc told me to take a week off because i was having contractions that he wanted to make sure were just uterine irritability. So went today and was walking on the treadmill and all of the sudden got really bad vertigo, started sweating and could have vomited. I sat down on the edge of the treadmill and was not able to get up for 10 minutes. Totally embarrassing. So i called my doc and he says no more gym. He says my size is about what i would be at the beginning of my 3rd trimester so it's not uncommon to feel this way. His concern is that if i walk on the treadmill and actually do faint i could really hurt myself and the babies. I understand, but it's freezing outside lately and i live in an area that is full of huge hills. I'll be walking like a mile an hour if i walk around here. Not to mention i can't push my son on these hills because extra excertion causes my uterus to contract. Anyway, i am just really bummed. I have already gained 20lbs and need to keep the rest of weight gain at bay. How am i going to do that now?
