Excercise?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering what the status is on everyone's exercise habits so far. I am a runner and I feel like I need some support from people out there who are in the same boat. Sometimes I get a little nervous running, although I know it is okay and GOOD as long as it doesn't bring me to complete exhaustion, which it never does. I ran in my previous pregnancy all the way up to the day my son was born (right at 37 weeks and he was small...5 lbs 12 oz. so I never felt too big to run). I just get scared, especially right now when everything seems to make me nervous.

Any thoughts out there? How much exercise do you get...what do you do?

I know I spelled "excercise" wrong in my heading...my bad! (I'll chalk it up to "pregnancy brain"!!!")

I was actually thinking about making this post, LOL! I'm going to start getting SOMETHING going. Right now we go swimming alot (2 miles from the ocean!) which is great, but I wanna do more walking & other things too.

I walk the dog in the mornings, up a big hill, for about half an hour. I also have a horse and I ride about 3 times a week. I rode in my previous two pregnancies until 7 months, when it was finally too uncomfortable. I got back on a week later both times. I'd say, if it's something you're used to, keep doing it. The CNM's I saw in both pregnancies were okay with me riding because it was something I'd been doing for years. One said she was just happy I was getting any exercise at all, so many moms don't.

Oh yeah, thanks for reminding me! I do walk my dog, too! 45 min. at the crack of dawn each day.

I currently do tons of walking and most of the time I'm wearing my 26 pound DS! Other than that I've started prenatal yoga. I really want to stay in better shape this pregnancy than my last. I gained a total of 50 pounds last time (DS was almost 10 pounds at birth) and it took my 9 months to lose it! Which was not cool!!!

I work out five times a week at a womans gym. I run 2 miles and walk (fast) 1 mile on a incline. I also take kickboxing arobics Tu & Th and regular arobic's M,W,F. I stay at the gym about an hour and a half each day. It works out great, Kaden get's to play with other kids there and I get some time to myself.

I'm trying to keep up my usual fitness routine, just with less intensity. So that's cardio 3x per week, and weights 2x per week. I'm also going to start prenatal yoga and pilates in a couple weeks. With my last pregnancy I gained weight like crazy in the first trimester so I'm determined to eat healthy and keep active this time.

Gosh, I'm a slacker compared to y'all! I do a power walk - usually 2 miles a day. I *usually* feel pretty good about that.

Oh I lived in Korea too, while pregnant with DS in 2005. When were you there and what base? I was at Kunsan and I hope to never see that country again: .

Well, I went to the beach today, wish I could say I excercised, but I just kind'a stood around with a friend while our kids excercised!

Oh. Yeah. Exercise.

I walk, some. Not as much as I used to. I walk a mile home from my son's school twice a week, with him on my back the whole way (he's 33 pounds last checkup). I walk here and there around the neighborhood, but not NEARLY as much as I did last time I was pregnant.

I definitely want to do prenatal yoga again; that was the BEST. I felt my first kick while in that class! But I just checked the schedule at my YMCA, and the only pn yoga classes are when I'm at work :-(. Bah.
