Okay... so what's the call... is it okay to exercise right now?? Should I wait until I go to the doctor? I just lost 35 lbs recently and I don't want to gain it back (unless it's baby weight)... but I would rather gain it back than hurt my baby. What do you all think? What's your plan?

I'm thinking I'll just stick with walking (slower than usual... I usually book it) and wait to ask the doctor when I go on August 6th.

I would say continue to do what you were doing unless your doctor says differently. If you haven't been exercising, I wouldn't start now without talking to your doc!

Congrats on losing 35 pounds. I've still got 18 to lose from having Dean, so I'm going to be very careful this time not to gain too much weight!

I've been training for a half marathon, so I'm going to continue to run until my doc tells me not to, which will probably be around 12 weeks. then I'll move from running to elliptical/walking if he'll let me.

You've done really well! I think you're right to take it easy and speak to your doc about it at the earliest opportunity. Very wise x

Typically docs say you can continue with what you're used to, and if it gets uncomfortable then that's a sign to stop or slow down. But IMO you should take the lighter road until you get that ok from your doc. Every situation is so different.

Was I the only one that was just reminded of Charlotte, in the Sex and the City movie?

Exercise should be fine. I would avoid any abdominal exercises at first (specially crunches). From what I've read crunches and such can lead to m/c. Just what I've read. Don't know if it's true or not.
Thanks claire1979 for the beautiful siggy!

I agree with the other ladies.

And I also read somewhere that running can be hard on a pregnant uterus, the ''thumping'' strains the ligaments and such. I even know a girl who ran because she had an issue with the baby being gone already but not coming out naturally and her doc told her to start running again...and she did miscarry naturally by running not too long after. Just a heads up...but I'm not a doctor so of course I would still check to make sure.
Thank you Jaydinsmum for my amazing siggy!

Thanks for the heads up Lisa. I'll definitely do the elliptical until I talk to my doc on Tuesday.
