Sure am! I've had to scale back pretty significantly in the past week though as I discovered I've got a pretty big diastasis recti and don't want to make it worse.A bit bummed out about that, but my coach is giving me 'prego wods' and I'm still crossfitting about 4 times a week. Wall balls today, whoop!How far along are you?A couple of other threads too:https://forums.thebump.com/discussion/12248243/any-pregnant-mamas-lifthttps://forums.thebump.com/discussion/12158293/crossfit-rowing-did-i-overdo-ithttps://forums.thebump.com/discussion/12253961/diastasis-recti
Re: Pregnant Crossfitters
A bit bummed out about that, but my coach is giving me 'prego wods' and I'm still crossfitting about 4 times a week. Wall balls today, whoop!
How far along are you?
A couple of other threads too:
I will be 7 weeks on Monday. I've been cutting back on my WOD's as I am a little freaked out about miscarriages. Prior to pregnancy I was 3-4 days a week eating a strict Paleo diet.
How are your coaches? Are they completely helpful when you ask questions or do you feel like you are having to do more the research yourself?
I also used this blog as a resource: https://hestolemyheartsoistolehislastname.blogspot.com/p/crossfit-while-pregnant.html she kept doing russian twists and planks much further into her pregnancy, and I think those are possibly the movements that have got me into my current situation. Everyone is different though.
The main thing is to just to be aware of your body and keep an eye on your abs for any separation. If it does start to happen you can catch it early and stop the core exercises. I was definitely pretty bummed to find out mine had torn as I thought I was being careful. But I've worked with my physical therapist over the past week to come up with list of safe exercises that will protect my core and I'm just happy to be working out still
I was probably about 80% paleo before getting KU but I've definitely had a few more things creep back into my diet. But I try to be choosey: sourdough, white rice and gluten free oatmeal are the main things I've added and it definitely helps with my energy levels.
I did check out Crossfit Mom's website and WOW! I'm super excited that she has scaled movements that still work those same areas you would be working.
I'm only 7 weeks pregnant now, but I feel like when I do pushups, OHS, T2B.. Pretty much anything that uses core work my stomach feels weird. I've been Crossfitting for a year so I should be fine and shouldn't have to scale anything, but I have been since I don't want to take any chances. Anyone else who's early on in the same boat?
This is my fouth pregnancy but my first doing crossfit thoughout. I sleep better, I have less aches and pains and its made it easier to keep a healthy diet. Although Im only about 50/50 paleo, Im keeping processed foods to a minimum and eating balanced protien rich meals.
Today I had my first u/s and the dr I met with to confirm was a few weeks off. I am 6 1/2 weeks right now not 9. The place I go to had us go to this Q&A for new expecting parents and one of the things they said was not to let your heartbeat get above 150. I just looked at my husband and laughed. My own personal dr knows I crossfit and is support and just told me to listen to my body. I do feel tired a lot but I think it is partly due to limiting my caffeine!! But I will say, tonight our gym did Fran and that was DEFINITELY above 150 for my heartbeat..It felt really good though!
