exercise in 3td trimester

hey ladies!!! Do you guys have the energy to exercise? If so, how long and what are you doing? I'm a FTM in my 3rd trimester. I'm always tired but not sleepy. Prior to baby, I did Crossfit twice a week

I live in Phoenix AZ and it's miserably hot so the only exercise I do is go swimming. I would really like a gym membership to walk on the treadmill or the bike machine.

I worked out four times a week till the day beforevi went into labor. It helped me push. I got my son out in one push. And my labor was easy

Wow!!! I walk to get where I am going...such as the car or work. I need to incorporate some type of physical activity

Yea i am a full time college student and walked across the university lots and lived on the 3rd floor. My labor was easy, and smooth. My son pretty much slid out lol. I would do squats and pelvic tilts at home. They build your lower body and help you push. :)

I'm abt to enter my 3 trimester. . I do have the energy to exercise. I still run 2 to 3 times a weeks (3 miles) or do the bike using the hill program. After that I lift weight. If it's leg day I do squats with 50 lbs weight, lunges with 50 lbs n the Smith machine with 50lbs. Death lifts 80 to 90 lbs.. N so forth.. nothing where I have to lay on my belly. 1 day I work arms so I do press 50 lbs. Curls, dumbell press 22 lbs on each hand. Back n chess. So just abt everything I was doing b4 except I don't lay on a bench straight down or decline n nothing laying on my stomach.

But if ur on ur 3 trimester n haven't kept up with ur exercise routine I don't recommend u starting one down. Just walk or do small stuff like that. Unless u continued exercising through ur pregnancy then u can continue .
