I am a new mom to be, due in April! I am very health conscious and want to have a healthy and fit (but safe) pregnancy. If there are any other pregnant ladies or moms that have been there, I would love to form some sort of accountability/support group where we can get to know each other and give each other tips/advice and talk about how we are working out and eating throughout our pregnancies. Let me know if you interested.
Fit Pregnancy...looking for other fit moms to be!
Im glad you started this! I am definitely health conscious and want to be in the best shape that I can be in now...and quickly after this baby boy is born.
Today is actually my first day that I have signed up to be a coach for Team Beach Body. So I plan on having LOTS of good advice, meals and so on once I get my stuff in!
Until then, Ive been realy into yoga and eating right. I am also a vegetarian.
I'm happy to talk to other Moms who aren't afraid to keep hitting the gym! I'm due 4/10/2014 with my third (although its been 13 years since my second!) and so far have been able to keep up with an exercise routine ( not as strenuos as it had been pre-preggy but not bad…). I've heard that I should keep my heart rate below 140 while pregnant but this is tough. Anyone else have info on this? Also, does anyone have a really great weekly excersise schedule they'd like to share? Any other runners out there?
I ran 1 full marathon (already had been running a lot) when I was 4 weeks pregnant with my first because I didn't know yet. I continued running throughout my pregnancy just fine until about 7 months when the extra weight started hurting ymknees and ankles. Otherwise I did yoga, pregnancy yoga and a few videos for "pregnancy strength training" or I just modified my normal exercise classes to not lay on my back after the first trimester, etc.
My main advice would be to continue exercising but keep in mind positioning and listen to your body!
I've heard that the heart rate thing isn't a big deal. you just have to listen to your body and know your limits. I have been exercising all throughout my pregnancy I was lifting weights and running but I just started the turbo fire program and am loving it!! Its hiit training so its a lot of cardio but its been awesome! The days that I exercise have so much more energy..i can't imagine being pregnant and not exercising at all!!
if you're on Facebook I can add you to my group! just tell me your name and where you're from and I'll look u up!
