Avatar f tn Do any of you ladies know where I can purchase any yoga DVDs @ or any exercise tapes for pregnant women?
Avatar f tn I just stick to walking... whether its outside or on a treadmill. You can go bike riding as well. Squats, lunges... simple stuff. Don't do anything where you are putting strain on your body or where you won't be able to catch your breath.
18524847 tn?1465599501 How do you all feel about exercise when pregnant? Did/Do you keep up your usual routine? Did you slow down? Did you add things, not do things you normally do? Recommendations?
1523981 tn?1311322195 I was a runner before I was pregnant and continued to run for a few months into my pregnancy. I then switched to just prenatal yoga/pilates and nice long walks. I gained about 25lbs. I think working out helped me handle labor and bounce back pretty quick afterwards. It is worth trying to stay active! Best of luck to you!
Avatar f tn Do you exercise? Can you recommend safe exercises for pregnant women? I used to go for a jog in the park, but I'm afraid to run now, because of the pregnancy... I just go for walks... Any other ideas?
Avatar f tn I also just joined the YMCA, do whatever you can comfortably do for exercise, swimming is highly recommended for heavier and pregnant women cause it takes stress off your joints. Ive personally been swimming, walking on treadmil, and doing exercise bike. I would ask your drs office if they have a nutritionist you can see or can recommend you to one.

Avatar m tn Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Avatar n tn I was told that it's pretty hard to produce progesterone to maintain a workout like Like that when the workout itself was upping my cortisol levels to high and subsequently I lost that pregnancy. This time, I'm not doing even a bit of exercise which is super hard for me until 12 weeks - then I'm switching to Pilates and yoga and walking - the hard core exercise can wait till he/she is out then I'm straight back on the hard core exercise!!
Avatar f tn So I expect to pack on some weight then but yeah it's different for women who are overweight. My doctor stated that an average/underweight woman should gain 30-50. We are only supposed to gain about 11-20 because of our stored fat.
Avatar f tn Just use common sense, for example, no rollercoasters, or bungee jumping, ya know?
Avatar f tn I had a conversation with someone (a man) about if men find women attractive even with a pregnant bump. I see women post pictures of their bump, shirtless on facebook and i wonder what the reaction is of a guy. He claimed only a married man is attracted to that pregnant woman. That other men won't find her desireable or attractive. Do you think this is true? Have you had any experiences where you were pregnant and men made advances to you or found you sexy?
Avatar f tn Actually according to everything I've read a pregnant women should have between 2200-2500 calories a day and a breastfeeding women should be getting 3000. That sounds like a lot to me, but I guess it's right. I didn't mean to offend anyone who did gain that much with their pregnancy. I'm sure I'll lose it too. I dunno. I just have this big fear of getting too big. I think I will try and calm down and just make sure I keep eating good and exercising.
1526161 tn?1291684978 Ovulation can happen at anytime and each women will not have the same signs so you can't go on symptoms hoping it might already have happened. For example, I've had EWCM for three weeks now which you get when you're most fertile, but I'm not ovulating. Are the odds you're pregnant high? No. But the point is that they do exist and are there, whether he ejaculated or not. Pre-ejaculation will ALWAYS be present when a male is aroused and he will not know when this is secreted.
341551 tn?1266984330 it would just be different thats all. And for someone whose never been more than 13 weeks Pregnant, that will be new to me, thats all. I know for a fact that I would loose the baby weight ASAP and my priorities are my family not my body...I just wanted to share some of my most recent thoughts. I'm not having doubts about anything and LOL would definitely not be depressed...I was just simply sharing the idea that I love the way I look and how different it will be when I'm Pregnant.
