Are you focused on fitness during pregnancy?

Do you still exercise regularly?

It has been many years since I have been pregnant, but even back then doctors told us that if we did it before pregnancy (exercise) we can do it during pregnancy. Our bodies seem to have a magical way of telling us what is right for our own bodies. I walked daily back then and still do today. It's my escape...

I'm still going to the gym twice a week and walking on the treadmill at home another 3-5 days. But I'm only 7 weeks and I'm battling tiredness right now. I had lost 20lbs before I got pregnant though, and I really don't want my weight to spiral out of control.

Yep! I'm a beachbody coach (currently doing Insanity and 21 Day Fix) and I'm also a runner. I'm listening to my body and definitely feeling the exhaustion, but trying to stay active. It's so important to keep up your activity levels when pregnant, as much as you can!

The tiredness is REAL, girl! I'm right there with you! I refuse to gain a 5 year old this time, lol!

It's an excellent program and works great! Glad to have you here!

Fitness leads to health but take care in special months where you are not supposed to do heavy activities.

Since I've been doing pilates twice a week before my pregnancy, the doctor said it's fine to continue. Obviously some things I should avoid. In any case don't start a new type of exercise during pregnancy.

During each of my pregnancies, I did free weights, weightlifting, bicycling, walking, running, and the stationary Lifecycle level 6.

It did not make labor very easy, but I was able to endure labor and recovered very quickly! I was able to bicycle to the gym and do an exercise class hours after my second homebirth.

I completely lost interest in going to the gym when I found out I was pregnant, because the fatigue and morning sickness then cold/flu illness that followed was just so overwhelming. I barely got off the couch for 6 weeks. But after that I've made an effort to do some walking on most days, because I've heard that being fit and healthy can make for an easier labour (not sure if that's true, this is my first). I would just take it easy, and try not to overheat. Walking and swimming are recommended as good exercises during pregnancy.
