99 Days to go!

Yeah baby, I am in double digits counting down until Baby Carpio is born! In weeks, that equates to only 14 as of this coming Wednesday. Heck, that's shorter than most of my contest prep phases!

I am feeling great, all things considered. I occasionally get tired feet, swollen ankles and an achy back, but it's fairly short-lived and doesn't interfere with my everyday activities. (I'm still on my feet for 4 straight hours in the mornings training clients!) I'm also trying to remain as positive as I can throughout my pregnancy. First, I know it's short-lived and the pain will soon be over. Second, it's the most unique and important experience in my life to date, and I want to try and enjoy it and remember it for the good, not the bad. It seems to be working so far. :)

Wow Melissa, congrats to you! I am so glad I could help you in your journey. That makes everything I do worthwhile! Now you're a source of motivation for me since I want to do my next show 8 months after giving birth. :)

:) you can do it chica! 8 months is plenty of time after a bay to get back into "show shape"! Im excited to hear you plan to compete so soon after a baby! just keep up your workouts while you still have the energy,and once you and your new baby find a good schedule and routine,then get back in the swing of things--it was hard at first trying to juggle work,workouts and a newborn,but it IS possible,you just have to be creative at times with the workouts and very time effecient in the will do fine,no doubt!!!!
Keep it up!
