I am currently pregnant with my second child (6wks) and I've heard that I shouldn't workout but then I've hear that I should work-out as long as you don't get too hot and sweaty. So which one is it?
I've always loved to work out but during my first pregancy I traveled as I wasn't working and I didn't workout. In the second trimester I picked up swimming and prenatal yoga for the rest of my pregnancy. Although I did exercise I gained 55lbs (I lost all of it and then some but it took me 10 months). I would like to avoid gaining more weight then I should. Although, I did eat more then I should during the 1st pregnacy have which is where most of weight came from. I just get so hungry and sick if I don't eat so I don't know what to do there either.
Regardless, for this pregnancy I am going to be home for most of it and I really enjoy working out. pre pregnacy I had a set routine and enjoyed getting out and taking a little break from the baby (14mths) and working on myself for an hour or so, but I'm at a loss and I'm not sure what I can and can't do. I would like to be sure as I don't want to jeopardize the pregnancy in anyway. How much exercise is good, how often?
I normally do the elipicycle, weights, spin classes, bodyworks classes, pilates. I normally mix it up daily. I was going to the gym 4-5 days a week. I have slowed it down to 2 days a week. Doing a floor mat pilate class (with modifications) and walking on the treadmill but I don't feel that is doing anything. Please give me any advice you have.
