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?
Avatar f tn I was very active before i fell pregnant and stopped because had no energy and on top of it, I work and study. Has anyone felt the same? What's your advice?
Avatar f tn I am remaining on my same fitness routine I had prior to becoming pregnant. I attend yoga sculpt 1-2 times per week, zumba and run a few times per week. There's a great book called The Pregnant Athlete. Fitness is always important to me but has become even more of a priority now that I'm pregnant. It's supposed to help with pregnancy, labor and bouncing back after baby. Good luck!
143123 tn?1274304425 To what extent can you exercise when your pregnant? I'll be 6 weeks Monday. I had a m/c in 2006 and so I'm scared to death of doing something that will cause me to m/c, even though I had no control of my m/c. I'm feeling blah and when I work out it always makes me feel better. I'm not talking about an hour running on the treadmill and lifting weights. I just want to take a nice stroll on the treadmill for a little bit.
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?
10028419 tn?1416845304 Im 24 weeks and before I got pregnant I exercised all the time. (Mostly jogging, squats, crunches) just to stay in shape. I walk occasionally now but would like to start exercising again to help with weight gain and labor! Any one else exercise? I need tips on whats safe and what I should be doing!
Avatar f tn My doc told me that if u have a normal pregnancy u can continue ur normal exercise routine all the way through as long as ur tolerating it well. She had me eliminate fall risk at 12 weeks... for me this was snowboarding. But other than that I am 34 weeks and still exercising 5 days/week. I still run, do yoga, do insanity videos with some modifications, T 25 videos, elliptical, and hike on weekends (6-7 hilly miles at elevation), etc. I modify things on a daily basis.
571042 tn?1271450741 I was a somewhat avid exerciser before I got pregnant. It was hard to keep a routine in the first trimester but I think I have a good one now. I go to the gym Tues -Thurs. I primarily use the treadmill. I walk at about a 2.8 - 3.0 pace in the "random" mode. This gives me some up hill and flat walking. I figure the uphil walking would work my butt and thoughs pretty well. Anyway, I do kind of a graduated workout so it doesn't seem so monotonous.
Avatar n tn Hey moms. I am curious about how you guys are getting in your exercise. I have eliminated any kinds of ab workouts, I do a quick simple arm and leg routine and then do 2o min on my elliptical. Some days I am all full of energy and have to remind myself that I set a time limit for a reason. Other days, I don't feel like doing anything! My lil workout is how I end the day. The kids are in bed, so is my so. I clean then I take my workout as some me time. Then shower and bed.
1293682 tn?1311959671 HI know the feeling, I had given these symptom to my doc two years 2 weeks before I found out I was preggo with my 2nd son he only checked my tsh levels and said they were normal, I don't remember if they were on the high end of normal or not, but after I found out I was pregnant again I didn't question it as the symptoms are the same when your pregnant.

But ever since I've gotten pregnant i cry because im not fit anymore ): haha he gets upset because he says he loves me i Just don't feel motivated, i feel sad, like im huge. Which i know its all in my head! But anyways thanks for reading all that lol what are some good prenatal workouts to do at home?
470885 tn?1326332637 Just wondering if anyone altered or changed their exercise routine while TTC? I joined the gym nearly a year ago (although I've only been TTC since March). I aim to go 3 times a week at lunch (but work has been so crazy lately that, realistically, I'm only there twice per week). I do 20 minutes of cardio (eliptical) and then a short circuit of weights (all upper body). I also do some squats and situps.
649848 tn?1534637300 We know that exercise can help lift depression, energize us, keep our hearts healthy; and of course, it can help us lose weight, along with various other benefits. In trying to come up with interesting things to do in order to keep myself moving, I realize that there are a ton of various exercises, games and sports that can be done to keep us healthy, trim and in good spirits.
1809845 tn?1316444272 thanks guys! Mr.coffee, good answer! lol i just got back from my Doc.
Avatar n tn Just got off birth control and for the first time I am pregnant. I am 28yr old, I am happy but also nervous. I will appreciate any advice on first time pregnancy.
Avatar f tn If you were doing an exercise routine b4, you can stick to the same exercise. You just don't want to introduce anything new. Also as long as u have no complications cardio and weights are fine. You will have to intake more calories as you progress, but listen to ur body.
Avatar n tn I am trying to get pregnant and still don't know if I could be pregnant waiting for my period but not late yet. I don't know if I can exercise as I do regularly if I am pregnant and don't know it. Does anyone know? If I am pregnant, could that hurt the pregnancy or would it prevent me from getting pregnant? I just exercise moderately nothing extreme...
429615 tn?1204508080 I had preclampsia and was miserable. I am about 5 weeks pregnant and definelty want to not gain as much weight. I've been exercising and was wondering if anyone knew of some good exercises to do while pregnant. I'm still doing abs right now which I will probably have to stop before too long, or at least that's what i've been told.
394803 tn?1326299203 I had a blighted ovum which has nothing to do with your exercise routine. She said it's completely fine to walk a track or treadmill, even lift weights..as long as you're not straining your body. But always consult your doctor before doing so. My doctors daughter lifted weights through her entire pregnancy and had a beautiful healthy baby girl. It just really depends on your body...Good Luck and Congrats!
Avatar f tn It depends what you did before falling pregnant. Mostly it's said that you can continue to exercise to the same intensity you did prior to pregnancy. I've been doing pole fitness for six years and am an instructor, I haven't changed my exercise regime at all. On my days off instructing I do about an hour kn thw treadmill and stretch. Everyone is different though.
381606 tn?1242094349 This time, the only I did was walk and not in a gym and I got pregnant. I've heard that exercise can take blood away from the uterus and that's where we need lots of blood to get pregnant. I'm not planning to hit a gym again until after the 1st trimester. For now, I just walk and try to eat right. You won't get fat if you do those things and your body won't go to waste either.
Avatar n tn She can exercise while she is pregnant, but she needs to ask the doctor about her specific routine to see if it's all ok. The doctor will be able to tell her what she can/can't do. As for after, I'd wait until the six week check up she'll get before doing exercise, so her body has time to heal~~~that's if it's a vaginal birth. She's better off waiting longer if she ends up with a c-section.
Avatar n tn I am not pregnant, I have taken several test and they are negative and my husband had a vasectomy many years ago. I am wondering if my exercise routine and my calorie intake could cause this to happen this month? I had my annual exam 2 weeks ago and will get the results in another week. Can someone please help me, I am worried that maybe I am doing to much exercise, but ehna gain there are many people that exercise out there that don't miss their periods. Very confused.
Avatar n tn Also, there is no way I can be pregnant if my period came a week after my scare? My period was heavy like normal, not spotting or anything. Just wondering... as i am pretty ignorant on this subjects..
