I'm 16 weeks pregnant, and over the past week or so I have experienced intense pain in the front of my pubic area when walking. A quick look online points to symphysis pubic disfunction, a condition that for most people this doesn't kick in until the 3rd trimester!
So far walking is the only time I feel the discomfort. I do not feel any pain during my yoga practice, but I can't help but wonder whether some of the ways I am stretching may be causing the issue.
I practice the Ashtanga primary series 4 to 5 times a week under an experienced teacher. His main advice to me is to continue doing anything if it still feels normal (except for a few postures he advised me to eliminate: parivrtta parsvakonasana, janushirsasana C, garbha pindasana, kukutasana). I am still practicing Marichiasana C and D but not twisting very far, and definitely not catching my hands. I should note that I had been practicing this series for a year before pregnancy (though only 4 months with an in-person teacher).

Anyone else practice an intense form of yoga such as Ashtanga during pregnancy? If so did you end up learning by trial and error which poses to back off from?

I would suggest to visit to your gynaecologist and get tested about the pain and take consultation of a yoga expert to finalize your yoga poses. Everything won't work and you shouldn't take any risk.

My wife did yoga until about 12 weeks pregnant. She wanted to continue her studies, but I insisted that she give it up, as she could harm herself. As you can imagine, she continued her studies for about 4 more weeks, but I did not know about it ... As a result, she started having problems with her intestines and a lack of bacteria. I suspected that she was continuing to do yoga when she began to have a constant deterioration in mood, bloating and some other problems with the intestines. She had to use special supplements to restore her balance. I highly recommend that you consult with your doctors before continuing with your yoga practice. Otherwise, you may encounter a similar problem ... I hope you don't have the same problem. Good luck!

Why didn’t anyone tell me about this some months ago?!

When I was pregnant, I tried to lead an active lifestyle if possible. I walked a lot, went to the pool, and of course, did yoga. Practicing while pregnant, while not without its challenges, was overall a joyful, empowering, and transformative experience. Pregnancy actually deepened my yoga practice, and my practice supported my pregnancy. Yoga helped me relax, gain strength and energy. And to have the physical strength to exercise, I took a set of vitamins for pregnant women. Ordered on enhance club . With them, I had almost no toxicosis, and felt healthy and happy.

Sounds really nice when women don't forget about their body while pregnancy. You know I appreciate a lot when I find such kind of fitness inspiration which motivates me a lot. I'm following a lot of bloggers and trainers, different gym sites in order to be "in fashion" and to know more about this domain. To be honest everything works really nice and I'm trying to change my way of living. I even ordered an under desk elliptical. I was inspired by reading all the reviews about it on this Cubii Jr. Under Desk Elliptical Review [2020 Update] - Calibrate Fitness site and wanted to try it too. It gives me the possibility to move and at the same time work in my office. Incredible!
