I had started back at the gym a couple weeks before I was pregnant--basically just lifting some weights, using the elliptical, and taking some classes. I also stretch and try to keep a steady yoga routine, though I am pretty busy trying to finish my masters degree, working 35hrs a week, and taking care of my 5 yr old, so sometimes there are some long, inactive gaps!
Anyway, I was doing pretty good with my exercise routine until Monday night. After doing my strength-training I went on the Helix 3000 (sort of like an elliptical, but moves horizontally as well, creating a figure 8 motion). After just 5 minutes of that (not even pushing myself, and I had had some water and a small snack 30 min. before) I got so queasy and dizzy I thought I was going to pass out or puke or both! That is when my "morning sickness" kicked in for the first time, and unfortunately it hasn't gone away. I am nervous to do anymore cardio :/
What do you gals think? Stick with gentler exercise like yoga and mild strength-training until the morning sickness (which is pretty much all day) passes, or is there a way I might be able to do cardio now without getting seasick?
