as long as you don't push yourself too hard, I think it's fine. at the bootcamp I used to go to there was a specific one for pregnant ladies. Exercise is good for pregnancy, so I think you'll be just fine.

Since you've done it once before I don't see a big issue. I think it's more of a stress on your body when it's a new thing.

Just drink lots of water and watch what you do. Maybe let your instructor know that you are pregnant so she can advise you against certain excersizes??

I was still moving 120lb bales of hay and 50lb grain bags up until I was about 4 months along. As long as you did it before you should be fine now! Dont over do yourself!!!

I think you're nutso for doing it in the first place! lol No, but really, I agree with the others to let the instructor know you're pregnant in case there's some exercises you shouldn't be doing.

I worked up until the day I had Liam and my job entailed carrying around at least 50lbs of toys and paperwork, lifting them in and out of my car, up stairs, etc.

I was lifting 100 pound dogs by myself up until I was about 4 months along as well. I was also rearranging the furniture in my apartment by myself at 39 weeks pregnant lol.

Check with your Midwife as well :-) She may want you on a certain about of rest since you've had issues in the past!

Oh ya, deffo talk to your midwife. My personal trainer advised me not to do any working out, except walking and stuff... due to my previous early losses... but she said I could start back up in the 2nd tri. Hmmmmmm... pretty sure I'm there and I'm pretty sure I wont be HAHA. We'll get back into it after baby.... sometime

As long as its not something completely new you should be fine. I was doing lifting and stuff well into my pregnancy. Just listen to your body.

I think that as long as you aren't doing anything too excessive I think you'll be fine. I think asking the midwives about it would be a good idea too.
