Since I found out I was pregnant I haven't been going to the gym because I just wanted to make it through the first trimester and was so nervous about something bad happening. Now I am over 13 weeks and I am ready to go back because I have been having a lot of anxiety problems and I think getting moving and getting active will help me feel better. Anyway, I was wondering what is safe to do. I know I am not supposed to do any high impact exercises or get my heartrate over 140. I know that walking or using the elliptical is ok, but what aboutresistance training? Before getting pregnant I was working with a personal trainer using the Gravity system (http://www.efisportsmedicine.com/commercial/product-line/) which basically uses resistance against my own weight. My trainer knows I'm pregnant, but I'm worried about any exercises where I would do jumping, and especially squats. I don't want to put any extra pressure on my cervix. I am supposed to have an appointment today but I am thinking of cancelling it.
What would you ladies do?
