I lift weights and jump rope. I feel like i have to. I just dont over do it
I haven't tried the DVDs but if you're already working out now it shouldn't be a problem working out. I'm 26 weeks and still work out. Not as crazy as I was before. Just stay hydrated and drink lots of water. And it does help with delivery. When I had my 2nd baby labor was a lot smoother and faster. Even the recovery wasn't that bad.
My doctors told me to hold off till I'm in my first trimester.... I've been told that with all 4 and I've never had a miscarriage or nothing wrong threatening a miscarriage... He explained to me that working out in the first trimester can put stress on your body to cause you to have a miscarriage .. He explained that not all women are the same but to be on the safe side just to with till the 12th week.. walking is perfectly fine... but in your 12th week it will be hard to do anything ab wise... I'll talk to your doctor anything nd take their opinion first
Talk to your doc but all I've heard is that if your body was used to working out before.... You can continue to workout. I'm 16 weeks and run 2-5 miles a few times a week and still go to my gym workout classes. Dr is happy that I can do that and feel comfortable. The main thing is to stay hydrated, listen to your body and don't let your body overheat.:0)Trying to stay strong and healthy through pregnancy!
U can do anything you were doing b4 you were Pregnant now. Just make sure to decrease the lvk according to how far along you are and how you are personally feeling. If ur not feeling hot ease up until you do.
i walk 3 miles a day however i dont lift weights. I would go over it with your obgyn first as we all have different circumstances. You can lift weights I have read but not to heavy of weights.
