Me (Holly) - Well, I haven't been doing much. Too tired and busy. I do go for regular walks with my DD and my dog. I haven't been to the gym in awhile, I am trying to work it back in. Before my BFP I went to the gym 2-3 times a week fairly consistently. I have just been super busy lately.

Re: ~November Ninjas Wednesday Check In~

  • I have been walking as well. Nothing more then before.
  • I'm walking and riding the stationary bike while I read pregnancy books.  DH sends me out of the gym to cool off every once in a while and makes sure I'm hydrated.  I feel so dumb right now that I really can't be trusted to do it.
  • I'm continuing with my trainer in a regular kettlebell routine.  I'm also walking and running.  I'll be starting prenatal yoga in a couple of weeks as well.
  • I have been walking.. I was going to start riding my bike now that it is warm out, but then I was told that isnt allowed so now I am not. Oh and I forgot to every give you my age its 19.
  • Before my BFP I was going to the gym and running at least 4 times per week. Well, now I have slacked off, I am trying to lift some weights at least twice a week. I am not running much but doing a lot of speed walking and walking up on an  incline. I am just so tired by the time I get home from work. I want to work in some swimming once a week b/c that is such a great overall workout.Well see though..

  • I was running about 15-20 miles a week and now I am just jogging/walking about 10. I have really been slacking. I think I am just a lot more tired and am milking that excuse. :)


  • i really didn't exercise before my BFP, but now that the weather is getting a little nicer i want to start walking and i'll be doing prenatal yoga

  • I didn't do anything pre BFP and I'm not doing much now, just eating better. I bought a prenatal pilates DVD and I'm on the look out for a good prenatal yoga one too. I plan on starting these in 2 tri.
  • Hi, I'm new to this board and just emailed my info to be added.  I'm Joni, age 36.  This is my third but my DH's first child so we are pretty excited!

    I was terrible about excercising before this pregnancy and I'm doing nothing now either lol.  I am planning to start taking walks with the kiddos and DH now that the weather is already getting nicer here. 

  • Hi everyone!

     I hadn't been exercising much before my bfp so I'm trying to walk lots and I will also be doing some prenatal yoga and aquafit classes.

  • Good morning ladies!?

    I'm really active anyway, so I'm just going to continue everything I usually do for as long as I can!

    Surfing, swimming, running, pilates, bicycling...

    I've heard multiple times that your labor and recovery are easier if you are active, so I'm not going to stop just because I'm pg! :)?

  • 2 weeks of the crappy flu kept me from exercising recently, but I've gotten back into my regular stuff.  I'll go to the gym 2-3 times a week, and yoga, hiking, or wii fit at home a couple more times a week if I can manage it.  Don't plan on changing my activity, though I haven't gotten the first trimester exhaustion yet, so we'll see.

  • Walking and coaching shot/discus.
    I haven't gone to the gym since my BFP. I've had some spotting issues which has made me a little paranoid even though there is no logical connection to the spotting and the gym.

    Second Tri I want to start the pg water aerobics and yoga classes at the Y.

    Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing at all. Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker BabyFruit Ticker
  • QOTD - What sorts of exercise are you doing? Is this different than what you did before your BFP?

    At the moment none only b/c I have been feeling so awful. But my DH and I usually take walks and I am going to start with yoga soon I think.

    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • I haven't been doing anything since my BFP.  Before that, I was working out with a trainer 2-3 times a week and doing pilates once a week.  Financially I can't swing the trainer right now and other stuff has been keeping me away from pilates but I'll be starting that back up this week. 

    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker

  • I was not doing much excercise before my BFP, but I do intend to start getting some kind of excercise in (walking) and doing some prenatal yoga(offered at the Y). 
  • Happy Hump Day!

    I was doing quiet a bit of exercise before my BFP. I worked with a trainer, lifting twice a week and cardio 6 days a week. I've been slacking this week due to being so tired and can't get up in the am. But I'm going to try to keep up with cardio 3 to 4 times a week and maybe minimal weights. 


  • For now I walk at least 2 miles everyday with our dogs and i'm doing prenatal yoga too. I didn't exercise much more than walking the dogs before my BFP so i'm trying to stay healthy throughout this pregnancy so i don't balloon up. I hope you are all feeling well today and i look forward to keeping in touch with all of you throughout this process.

  • Hi there--I'm also new, BFP today!--and just sent my email request to be added, expecting on Nov 20th. I've done walking/jogging, power yoga and hand weights. I'll probably just keep to walking and downgrade the yoga positions a bit, but definitely plan to keep fit as much as possible. Unfortunately there aren't any prenatal yoga classes in our area but I will use videos to make sure I'm doing modifications correctly.

  • Right now I am working out as normal.  4-5 days a week weights and running or eliptical.  Now that the weather is getting nicer I will take the running outside.

    Lilypie Pregnancy tickers
  • Right now all I'm doing is walking to the toilet to puke.  When I feel better I'll do yoga and walking
  • Good morning! Because I wasn't doing a whole lot of strenuous exercise before my BFP (shame on me!), now is apparently not the best time to start. I'm going on walks with my husband and eating a lot healthier for now, and once our neighborhood pool opens up, I'll try to do some swimming.
  • add me, please!

    amanda, edd: 11/19/09

    qotd:  i have a $90/month gym membership i'm paying for and don't use... so i guess it's time to start.  a few months ago i was going twice a day and doing treadmill, elliptical, and weights.

  • Happy Hump Day, Ninjas! I used to go to the gym 3-4x/wk and take cardio and strengthening classes. I stopped going 1 week before I got my BFP coz I was feeling lazy. I just went back yesterday and walked on the treadmill for 20 mins, did some upper body weights. H and I have also been taking walks around the neighborhood.

  • I live right next to a park, so I'm going to try and take a walk around it every day. I used to do it fairly frequently, but not every day.
    Pregnancy Ticker
  • I have been walking lots and swimming a couple times a week.  About the same as before.  Tonight my girlfirend and I are trying prenatal yoga!
  • Well, I'm now getting over the worst cold I've had in at least a decade, so I haven't worked out for almost a week.  Prior to that, I was working out just as often, but with much lower intensity.  I run about 3-4 days a week, do elliptical 1-2 days a week, and do yoga once a week.  I always take one day a week off.
  • No excersie for me whats so ever. I am extremely tired when I get home from work. All I want to do is lay down and relax. Hopefully soon I can do something.

    I lost 5lbs. this week. Is this normal?

  • before the bfp I was working out about 4x week with cardio and weights. I have been continuing my same routine, basing what I do on how I feel. Only difference is that I am lifting lighter weights than before.
