rootsdawta, I love lifting! It makes me feel so strong. I've cut down the weights for deadlifts and squats so far, but I'm still doing pretty much everything else. Do you do any particular kind of lifting?
ithappened, let us know what the doc says. I think you're doing everything you can. Walking is good and helps boost the immune system. But the preggo body takes longer to recover and the sick body even longer, so I think you're playing it really smart by not pushing yourself and just seeing how you feel. I really hope they dose you up and you can start feeling better soon. Is DS feeling any better?
lakeruby, that's great! I felt crampy after doing a stomach thing at 12 weeks, and that's how I knew I couldn't do anymore on-the-belly stuff. I'm still doing pretty intense ab work in other positions, so I wouldn't worry about it. As long as the cramps are just sort of mild, I think you're fine. I felt a sharp cramp early on when doing kettlebell swings and I backed off on those immediately (I fit them in later just fine). I think with your instructor and your own body awareness, you'll know if something feels wonky. That's great that your workplace offers that stuff. I'm hoping when the weather gets nicer I'll be more active outside. I've been good about the gym, but boy do I miss long walks with the dogs.
Andaluza, I cannot do yoga in the house. I get sooooo bored. If I need to, I'll put on a movie and just do long holds in specific stretches, but for the life of me I can't make myself do yoga videos at home. Oh well. Those walks sound great though. I'm jealous you're getting sun.
