Pregnant after a Loss

Exercise and cramping

Ugh.  PGAL brain has got me again.  Last night I went to Zumba class. I tried to keep it on the lower intensity side.  Afterward I had cramping so I laid down for about an hour.  Eventually it went away.  No spotting.  My problem is that right before I started spotting with my last miscarriage, DH and I had gone out and played some light tennis.  I know that's not what caused my miscarriage, but it's hard not to connect the two.  I'm assuming cramping after exercise is normal.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I definitely don't want to stop exercising, I'm normally extremely active, but now it makes me nervous.......

Re: Exercise and cramping

  • I absolutely had a ton of cramping from early on until about 16-18 weeks this pregnancy. I did high intensity interval workouts modified in the 1st and 2nd tri because that is the workout I have always done. They are pretty core intensive even though I didn't do a lot of the tradition ab work, I usually felt cramping after the workout and even the next day. I would have days where I would cramp all day, all the way into the 2nd tri, for me it was just my uterus stretching and usually corresponded to growth spurts. There was one night around 5 weeks after I ate a meal with a lot of legumes I had such bad cramping and gas I was sure I was having a miscarriage, but it was just the beans I guess. I always had to remind myself that baby was well protected in there and at the size of a seed for the first few weeks.
  • I had cramping at the beginning of this pregnancy. And when I had a CP I told my sister I was worried that going to the gym while it was trying to implant caused the CP. She said that wouldn't happen.

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

    My doc told me as long as my heart rate doesn't go over 150 everything should be good. I would drink more water after your workouts to make sure you're hydrated well. (Edit: wrong your, you're, you are)
