I have been running regularly for the past year, but I recently started doing reformer Pilates and fell in love! I think it is a better option for me, a lot easier on my joints and great for my posture (which could use some help). I am planning on keeping it up for as long as is safe while I am pregnant, with some modifications of course. I am also interested in trying Zumba classes! And perhaps some prenatal yoga - I've only taken a couple of yoga classes before, it intimidates me but I think I'd love it.
I did Zumba for the first time a few weeks ago and loved it. I think it's a great pregnancy workout since you can make it as intense or not as you want.
Definitly will try to make back!
I also saw a "Dancing for birth" class advertised in a local women's journal. I might give it a try in the fall.
When I was pregnant with DD, I swam and swam and swam. I was also due in October, so was pretty pregnant in the heat of the summer. Swimming was so relaxing and a big relief for my body. I don't know if I'll keep up with this pregnancy (the pool in January is just not as appealing!!) but I did go swimming laps yesterday just to get myself back in swimming shape right now, when I'm small!!
I was also a big fan of my prenatal class, but I loved the teacher; to me, the teacher makes or breaks a yoga class. I've had to "shop around" a bit before I found a prenatal class I really clicked with.
I'm a runner too, but cannot seems to get the stamina and energy to do it during pregnancy! I'm ok with that, and will be back with a vengance next spring!!
Well, after going through this whole thread, I now feel like I really need to get my butt over at the gym! So I'm off!!!
