Light exercise? — The Bump

Light exercise?

I tried to walk on my treadmill today - not quickly at all - and within 9 minutes, I started cramping.  So I stopped.  I'm not exactly thrilled about it.  Any one else experiencing this?  I'd really like to be able to walk!

Re: Light exercise?

  • Ran a 5k over the weekend with no issues. Stay hydrated and stretch!

  • I work out regularly and do not cramp. Water is def important. Did you exercise prior to getting pg?
  • Light walking, like what I was trying to do today.

  • I'm a walker and had some cramping early on (4/5 weeks).  I listened to my body and slowed down.  I've been able to pick up the pace lately.  I'm not quite to my pre-PG pace, but I'm pretty close and enjoying my walks again.

  • Are you talking regular leg cramping or uterine?

    I did some reading on RLP & they said that exercise can bring it on. I've found that I usually cramp a little bit, take a break from exercising. It usually goes away pretty quickly & I can go back to what I was doing. 

    Hydration helps a lot!

  • I had some cramping when I did a TON of walking at Sea World. I think its probably just stuff growing and getting "loose" and will go away.  I read that you should start with 20 minutes of light walking (which seems like nothing) and then increase as your body allows.  (If you didn't run/work out prior to getting pregnant)  In the end: ALWAYS listen to your body.
