They might give you looks. Ignore them. I have gone some, but not recently, kind of gave up on the gym while pregnant. Still if you feel able, there isn't any reason not to go. You know your limits, just don't push them.

I don't think they can turn you away. You have a membership right? They never really bother people at all, at least not at the planet fitnesses I've gone to. And everyone knows walking is good for pregnant women. If they do give you trouble have your doc write you a note.

Good luck! And enjoy yourself. Maybe I'll drop in and use their treadmill too sometime. I've just felt so lazy about exercising while pregnant, bah. You've inspired me :D

I dont go to an actual gym, i have some equipment here at home, but when i used to go i saw lots of pregnant ladies there, they cant deny you a membership, because when you sign the contract you are doing it at your own risk and saying that you have consulted with your doctor about starting to exercise, have fun working out, it will help you sleep =D
