Are you exercising? What workouts are you doing? How often and for how long?

I ran part of a marathon last weekend but that is all the exercise (besides an occasional walk) that I have gotten in. Between my schedule and not having an ounce of energy I haven't. My schedule is going to slow down in the next few weeks and I am back at it.

Before I got pregnant I was exercising 6 days a week for around 1.5 hrs a day. I am not sure what to do now because my Dr told me I could continue what I was doing - just modify it some - because I was doing Turbo classes and P90X.. then he turned around and said "just try not to let your heart rate go over 140 for 20 mins at a time".. well that pretty much takes out everything I was doing.. so I am not sure what I should do..

I didn't work out through the entire pregnancy until recently when I started doing some cardio and yoga (and that was only like twice a week for a month LOL). I will probably stop doing squats and lunges and just stick with cardio since I am getting so close to the third trimester.

I do yoga once a week (prenatal class and the teacher is super wonderful). I try to walk or do step in front of the couch.

I did a 1/2 marathon about 2 weeks ago. I just walk.

Karen P. my dr said as long as I can hold a conversation while I am doing the exercise I am fine. That generally means around hr of around 160 not exceeding 170 for too long. I as working out really hard pre-baby. So I just scaled back to mostly walking.

I stopped lifting weights (I did ChaLEAN Extreme and P90X pre-pregnancy) and switched to walking workouts (Leslie Sansone) and a pregnancy salsa/yoga video that I have.

Steph - you are going to learn in your Bradley class to keep doing squats, just a different kind!

I haven't worked out at all this week. Like you I generally work out 5 x's a week but am a bit skiddish about hitting it as hard as I used to. I recall something about your heart rate not going over a certain amount but then I figure, what's the point?

I think my problem has been laziness and being tired... but I'm going to use the heartrate reason instead
