I'm so out of shape - no time to work out with a little one running around at home. But I asked my Dr. if I could start now, and he said it's fine, as long as I don't push myself. I love to swim & I've been trying to swim at least 2x/week. I would highly recommend swimming - esp. once you get bigger, it's so great to feel weightless in the pool when you're carrying around so much weight! I did push myself a little hard on my last workout though - did too many laps - & I felt like crap afterwards. I think you're fine doing your normal workout - just don't push it. I think once you hit your 2nd tri you're not supposed to do situps though - I would look into that, I can't remember when they say to stop laying on your back like that...
Bullshit. You have time, you chose not to. Such a pathetic excuse.
You can lie on your back as long as it is comfortable. I was doing bench press well into my 2nd trimester.
well, Mrs. High-and-Mighty aren't you *** special.
Nope. I just know she's full of crap about not having time to workout. If she really wanted to, she'd find time. She magically has since she found out she was pregnant. Blaming her child was nothing but a cop out.
To Ghostmonkey, she posted here because she was scared and looking for friendly advice, flap back to your batcave and hang upside down for awhile.
To the OP, it's normal to feel concerned and anxious about continuing your workouts. If you have a history of loss, or your having a high risk pregnancy, exercising can be a very real fear. I am on pelvic rest and intermittent bed rest for a high risk pregnancy, so I can definitely relate to those fears. Point is, do what you feel comfortable doing and just keep on following your doctors advice. When I'm able, I do a light hoop dance workout for half an hour a day, it's a mix of cardio and strength training that's not too hard on my tummy. It sure is fun, too! :D
