Sadly, it looks like the triathlon is going to be a no-go for me this weekend, but I’m not overly disappointed because the reasons are very positive.

The baby has been confirmed to be in head-down position now (albeit on the right side rather than the left — not a huge deal), and has actually started his descent into the pelvis. I guess all that downward motion on our hike the other day was helpful after all! 🙂 I have been noticing some soreness around my pubic bone over the past couple of days, mostly when I’ve been out walking or if I’ve moved in a certain way when lying down, and that makes sense now in the context of what the midwife has told us about his current position.

So I have decided to forego the triathlon, mainly because I think that two or more hours of swimming, cycling and running is liable to leave me feeling extremely uncomfortable, especially if the baby descends any further between now and Sunday.

J is not-so-secretly happy because it means we no longer have to be out of bed at 6:00 AM on the Sunday of a long weekend 😉 and can instead sleep in and then go for a nice brunch… which I will reluctantly admit is a rather appealing alternative.

It will definitely be interesting to see how the baby’s descent impacts my exercise capabilities over the next few weeks.

  1. Ooooo and the suspense really starts….when will the baby choose to make his or her big entrance??? Enjoy your sleep in on Sunday, there is always next year for that triathlon….and Happy canada Day! for tomorrow 🙂

  2. I am so happy that all seems well with the baby’s position.
    Besides which, brunch at this point in your pregnancy seems like a much better idea than a triathalon.
    Enjoy sleeping in J!!!!! I’m with you on this one! Whew!

  3. Wow, you are getting closer! Just a few more weeks now! Have a great weekend.
    PS: The photos from your hike are gorgeous!
