Yep! I'm far from a health-nut/freak (not that it's a bad thing) but, I def try and keep active during my pg. With my first, I didn't. With my second, I worked out up until the day b/f I delivered via c-section. Even though I've always been a tad fluffy, I really feel like by doing so, my recovery 2nd time around was SOOOO much easier. And, it helped me keep a healthy focus after I had baby. Watch it with the bleeding and if you're really inclined, start slowly. Water aerobics are great Since I ran/cycled/strength trained/danced b/f getting pg, my doc has encouraged me, as before, to continue. Use your own judgement and if you feel you need to settle down/rest/relax, do so. You have to do what makes you feel good. BTW, I LOVE burgers and fries - just had to add that I try and limit my cheat time to wknds still! Good luck!

Definitely talk with your Dr first, but yes I have worked out through all three of my pregnancies literally until delivery and plan to with this one, too. Both my MW and Dr were very encouraging of it! I didn't even have to back off much of what I was doing before I was pregnant. The only thing I really changed was my long run mileage (my daily runs stayed the same-around 7+ miles) and I just had to modify my strength training, pilates, and yoga after the first tri. It helps you feel so much better, it's good for you and baby, makes recovery so much easier (especially since I have c-sections), etc. It also helps keep the weight gain at a healthy level!

YES, I run, walk, do Pilates and do Zumba 2-3 times a week. I do workout though my pregnancies. Have to stop mt. biking though. THAT said I have been SO sick and tired the last two weeks I have NOT been able to do more than 3x a week.

I can't wait to get back to it because I get depressed just sitting on my butt. Really I fight depression and for me working out works better than meds.

I had started a low calorie diet with an exercise routine several months ago (lost 20 pounds, yay!). Just walking/jogging a few times a week. Then I broke my foot, so I haven't walked anywhere in about 6 or 7 weeks. As soon as my foot's healed, I intend to start walking/jogging again.

I have been doing T Tapp 15 min work out about 4-5 times a week. I think I will be able to continue doing it with a few modifications throughout the pregnancy. I also walk a lot (on treadmill in winter and outdoors in spring & summer).

Plus cooking, cleaning, and, playing with 3 kids 4 and under all day is a workout
