Ok y'all, I LOVE me some Zumba! Something about the loud music, shaking my butt and letting loose is my happy place when I am stressed or need to get away. I have been going for about a year and a half at least twice a week and had just gotten off a break from it that DH insisted on during the first trimester. So, I went tonight and couldn't keep up. About 20 minutes in, I had to quit cause I was getting too winded. I went and talked to a trainer about it and she said to do weights, treadmill or water aerobics because it's not safe to get too out of breath with baby. I walked the treadmill for a bit then came out to my car and cried!! What a loser! I feel so dumb feeling sorry for myself when I am blessed to be the vessel of new life! So I am a big fat baby that will miss my Zumba for the next 5 months-ish. Waaaahh!!

Sorry, had to vent!!

Aww you can still go and just do it until you get winded I bet once you get back into it you will not get winded nearly as fast and can do more!

I totally understand - I LOVE ZUMBA, but I refuse to even attempt it. I have a lot of shortness of breath on top of my asthma so I already know it won't work. Plus I don't think I have the energy to get through the warm up! LOL

At least you tried!

If you decide to try again, just take it easier at your own pace.

Can you do a modified version? I know it's not as much fun, but you could still go!

I tried to modify and still couldn't hang! I am hoping that it's just my chest cold. Fingers crossed!! It's not over yet, I will try again!
