View Full Version : exercise anyone??
okay I know you're probably all going to hate me for saying the following and I am possibly going to be extremely unpopular.....
But does anyone like me find that exercising actually helps morning sickness??
I get up early with DD (1 y.o.) and our routine every day but Thursday is to go to the gym around 8:30. I was trying to lose weight and it was working but then I got pregnant and now the ms has kicked in good and proper. The morning is the worst and I am generally super sick in the car getting there but once at the gym and walking and doing some weights I feel better. Particularly straight after my work out.
Coming home in the car I hardly feel sick at all.
If I don't go I feel worse.
Am I wierd?? Does anyone else feel better after working out?
Yes ,I found it helped, most of the time:yes:.....exercise is my job, so just as well!!:yes:
maybe it's because the fans and the coolness of the gym and the distraction of being there...then again the perfume and deodorant these ladies pile on at the gym - makes me gag! Why do they saturate themselves so much??
what is your job?
Aerobics instructor, fitness instructor and personal trainer (not PT-ing anymore though.)
I think it may bethe aircon but mainly because it just get all the good stuff in your body flowing and takes your mind off iyour sickness!
....and lol @ the perfume:rolleyes:
is it okay to keep training? I was running before I got pregnant (only just though, I was running mixed with walking on the treadmill for about 2 months) and now have been told to jog much more slowly. It's frustrating. I just want to run as fast as I can and sweat it all out. But it's quite difficult keeping heart rate under 140.
How far are you? Basically, you can keep doing what you were doin before as long as it is not maknig you hurt anywhere you shouldnt or if it feels wrong....Make sure you drink more water than you were before too.
There are many mixed opinions on the heartrate thing...personally, I found it really hard to keep under that because your heartrate goes up by about 10 bpm anyway when you are pregnant. I htink its more important to make sure you dont get too hot....you will know in yourself if you are and the aircom helps.
I trained all the way up to the end of my pregnancies - heavy weights and even Body Atatck lol - all and my kids turned out ok! lol
Seriously, just stay in tune with your body - if something doesnt feel right, dont do it. Jogging can be a probelm once your belly is sticking right out becase the jolting can cause harm to your ligaments. Also, dont do cruches after your belly pops out.
If there are any reaons why your pregnancy is high risk, you should carefully consider that as well - high blood presure, placenta praevia etc etc. Check with your doctor about whether you have any of these.
But, yeah, I htink it is ok (and benefical) to keep training.
Here's to a happy and fit pregnancy:thumbsup:
wow you must be really fit. At the end of my first pregnancy I could barely walk as my pelvic bones were rubbing together (ouch!) and trying to cope with a heavy baby (she was 4.1kg at birth :eek:).
So this time - at 7 weeks - I'm determined to be fitter, although right now it is really difficult because the ms is bad and I'm so tired all the time. I can barely do the workout that the gym has given me, I just get so tired and sometimes if I overdo it I feel even sicker. But, I am going to the gym about 4 times a week. :smiliedance:
I will keep all of what you've said in mind.
I don't think I'm a high risk pregnancy. Will have to see what doc thinks a few weeks. I do have a feeling it could be twins though....that would be high risk.
Im not sure if it helps at other times of the day but I find if Im feeling a bit off and am heading to the gym while I am working out I dont seem to notice it.
Unless I am feeling dizzy or really off then I keep on going!
