Working out while pregnant....

Hello!

I'm 4 months pregnant and just started working out. I was a gym rat before I became pregnant and I have just found the energy to go back. Is there anyone else out there pregnant and still getting it in at the gym?

    I'm not currently pregnant, but I do have a nine month old. (and a 4 yr old)

    I worked out during both pregnancies. You will hit a point where you just need to slow down.

    Listen to your body but do stay active. It's the best thing you can do for your little one.

    I loved prenatal yoga when I was pregnant. I highly recommend it for all pregnant women.

    I also did lots of walking and swimming. You'll see yourself start to slow down and just follow your body. It will tell you when to take it easy, so listen to it :)

    Congrats on the pregnancy!

    I worked out with my first pregnancy even with restrictions. I was banned from running or any impact stuff because of partial placenta previa but I was still able to bike, walk fast at an incline, elliptical runner and lift weights. I think I finally gave it up 3 weeks before my due date...and floated in the pool. LOL..

    I didn't work out during my first trimester, I was a little afraid because I had a mc in January and was just being overly careful. But once I hit 4 months I begin to go back. Treadmill or elliptical and light weights. I always feel really great after.

    As long as your health care providers say its ok go for it. As always, just listen to your body it knows what it can and can't do.
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
