I decided I would go back to my Zumba classes and increase my miles in walking. After finding out my baby is breeched I really want to move so baby can move too.

I'm laying in bed practically dead! Lol I felt like the scarecrow off of wizard of oz earlier when I was getting out of my car. Haha
I hope to keep up my workouts.

Anyone have any good tips on how to breath during workouts and how fast your heart rate is suppose to be?

Hmm as for breathing I would say in through your nose, out through your mouth is what I've been taught is healthiest. Although if you have the pregnancy-induced stuffy nose that might not be possible. As for heart rate, I dunno on that, maybe check it with your doctor?
Good for you for getting out there and exercising. Some people say they feel less tired when they exercise regularly. Maybe it will work out that way for you!

Try looking around for exercises to turn a breeched baby: https://www.google.com/search?q=exer...hrome&ie=UTF-8

When I first started working out again at around 23 weeks, I just regulated myself and slowed down if I was getting out of breath (I just use an elliptical). It helps you focus only on your breath (which can be hard if you're also trying to do choreography.. not a strong point of mine ) when you start to feel winded... the thing that always helps me the most is to focus on exhaling as much as possible.

As for heart rate, I don't think there are any restrictions: Exercise during pregnancy: Is heart rate a concern? - MayoClinic.com

I love Zumba! And the ppl who attend are wonderful in my class.
Surprisingly I was a bit nervous, after being gone for months but I picked up the new moves fast. Just amazed at how my joints have weakened. We worked on legs last night and whoa! Was I struggling. But I'm pushing to keep going. I definitely need it!

Thanks for the info

Regarding heart-rate, with my first pregnancy, my midwives told me not to exceed 145. So I was always monitoring it.

But this time around, I don't care. I have been told by others (physicians) that as long as you can still breathe and not feel dizzy, the heart rate does not matter. The other day I increased the inclination and realized my heart rate went up to 196 so I immediately stopped. Now I mostly walk on the treadmill, it's still snowing out but haven't been able to do more than 25 minutes b/c my 18 month old keeps looking for me and always wants to join me so I stop. I do that every other day.

I also try to do prenatal exercises, there are plenty of good tutorials on youtube. Here are two that I have been doing almost every night:

Leg and Butt Workout, Prenatal Fitness, Class FitSugar - YouTube (back and butt)

10-Minute Arm Workout, Safe for Pregnancy, Class FitSugar - YouTube (arms)

Definitely in through your nose and out through your mouth, and never hold your breath because it raises your blood pressure, especially during weight training. Breath out when your muscles tighten and breathe in when you release or go back to the starting positions. Lots of people just recommend breathing normal too because then your form doesn't get compromised if you get out of breath during sets if you're doing any kind of strength training.

I can't wait to get back to the gym too!
