What types of exercises are you all doing? Im 33 weeks and I stopped running a couple weeks ago.. was just wondering some alternatives :)
Ummm, does the walk from my car to my office and back every day count? LOL.
Seriously, prenatal yoga once a week and lots of kegels are the full and complete extent of my exercise.
Yoga twice a week, walking and crying (good ab workout).
shelley1002:LOL! I was going to ask if getting off the couch, out of bed, and walking to/from the car counted since that's about all I am doing.
HAHAHA! Same here. I discovered yesterday that I don't even have the stamina to get through a set of 10 kegels.
I stopped going to the gym 3 weeks ago but could probably go back if I could wake up a little earlier.
For now I'm walking the dog 30 minutes 3-4 mornings a week and doing squats every night.
I've been walking a lot lately. We have a very nice bike path/trail right by our house. I also do my pelvic rocking and stretch each night before bed. I swear it helps me not have lower back problems.
And then there's just the general energy it takes to chase after my 2yr old and 1yr old each day :)
I'm a fitness instructor and just stopped teaching spin a few times a week along with one Zumba class and one Yoga class a week. I'll be teaching senior fitness classes for a few more weeks and still plan on getting in some spin and yoga in so that I keep up a 4 day/week workout routine. I'm finding that anything high impact is REALLY tough so spin is basically cardio on your butt and weight lifting is slow and controlled movement so it's do-able. Yoga is almost out the window cause its so freaking hard to breathe while doing any kind of pose....
Early in pregnancy I was doing so well.
I stopped running around week 31 and fell off the band wagon from there. At first it was super hot, so it was hard to walk outside. And this week, I've been swelling up, so just want to sit with my legs elevated.
Now that the weather is cooler, I will make a better effort to ramp up the walking again.
