I'm 21 weeks pregnant with baby boy #2 and I'm going to be starting a new chapter as a SAHM to my 16 month old in a few weeks. We are joining our local YMCA and I'm looking forward to being able to bring my little guy(s) there to play in the childcare center while I workout. I have always (pregnant or not) been inconsistent when it comes to exercise. I'll get in a kick of working out several times a week and then go through periods where I'm not doing anything (minus chasing after my toddler). When I first got pregnant this time around, I walked around 3 miles at a fast pace a few days a week, but didn't do much outside of that. But between MS, exhaustion, and honestly laziness, I've really slipped out of the habit of exercising over the last few months. Well, now that I'm joining the Y, I'd love to get back into a workout routine. I know it would be good for both me and the baby. I love taking classes when I'm a gym member, so I'm wondering what classes are OK for me to do considering I haven't been doing much physically for a while now. Yoga seems like a safe bet as long as I ask the teacher to show me modifications when needed. Can I do things like BodyPump (weight lifting)? What about spinning? I have a HRM so I could monitor that if needed (and if I knew what I should keep it at or under).
Any advice would be helpful! Thanks!
