exercise is great for you, and totally safe, as long as you are mindful of your body. getting really overheated and exhausted during a workout is not the safest thing, and doing workouts that are very jarring to your body can be dangerous, too, particularly later on. but ellipticals are great b/c they are low impact and generally you can do them without getting really out of breath, so you should be fine.

I honestly dont see a problem with it expecially if your body is used to working out like that. I wish you the best

I have heard when you're pregnant your heartrate shouldn't get over 140 though, so you can take that into consideration too.

I heard that if you have already been working out then you can continue. They don't advise starting to workout if you havn't been working out in a long time. I wouldn't go has hard as normal though, but that is just me. Working out during your entire pregnancy is great, you just have to re-adjust and not push it as hard. Keep up the good work though! I need to get my hiney into a gym!

The elliptical is great to due before, during and after pregnancy. Keep close eye on your heart rate and you should be fine. I love to run and my md said that as long as I am running before I get pregnant that I can continue to do so while I'm pregnant. Chances are though the further along I get the more I will stay on the elliptical.

Way to go!!!

thanks ladies.. I need this for my disability.. it is the only thing that helps ward off pain.. unfortunately since my pregnancies are high risk.. I have an incomp.. cervix.. I can only excercise till I am 11 weeks.. I just have really long legs and go super fast on the elliptical, so I think I might slow down a bit and go at a slower pace.. i was just worried that since I do like to do 45-60 min it might be too much..

as for motivation.. girls I am here for ya..

Sounds good! I wouldn't weight lift during the 2WW but thats personal opinion - general physical exercise such as running etc, I think is brilliant. I work out occasionally at the gym but have slacked a bit over christmas to be honest x

Don't worry about how LONG you are on it, as long as you take it slow and keep your heartrate down. In fact, longer slower paced workouts are really the best way to go overall - if you can make time for a full hour or more, all the better for you and baby!!!
