Who here is adhering to keeping your heart rate at 140 bpm or less when exercising? My OB said that that "number," per se, wasn't accurate, but I should instead pay attention to how I feel and slow down or stop when my body tells me to. So far, that has been working wonderfully, even though I truly have no idea what my HR has been when I go for runs. I haven't had any cramping or spotting, etc, so I am assuming I'm not over working my body??

(some background: I've been a runner for years...completed 2 full marathons last year and was in the process of training for a half, so I wasn't just beginning an exercise program when I got the BFP)

What about you?
