    I find I am even more super hungrier than normal on days I workout and crave loads of carbs!!! :-/ I have been strength toning arms and glutes hehe and have started using 2kg dumbbells as the 1&1/2 felt too light - is it normal not to have sore arms next day? Must be fitter than I thought ;-)
    Now if only I could use that motivation to cleaning my whole house for Christmas! Lol

    Oh me me! I have a Q.

    So before pregnancy I probably never ate sugar at home unless we bought some ice-cream which was hardly ever....
    I never put on weight and now i'm 27 weeks i'm eating sugar soooo many times a day, ice-cream, cakes, etc....and now i'm getting FAT! My arms are bigger my thighs are bigger and having trouble getting into my maternity jeans!

    SO i'm wondering should I cut out all sugar (I will now that i'm writing this because I know I should) and exercise? I don't want to be fat please!! What exercise can I do to loose the extra while pregnant?

    Jen xoxo

    It's tough trying to ignore sugar cravings - I have opted to eat more summer fruits & berries with yogurt to try and tame them (doesn't always work!) I have been baking Xmas goodies for gifts this year - so there is loads of temptation in freezer atm. Perhaps for exercise you can start off walking, that way you get loads of fresh air and water and I find it distracts from the cravings for awhile ;-)

    I've been told by the instructors at my gym I'm ok to keep going with combat and pump throughout my pregnancy but I'm going to admit... it makes me a little nervous!! I use pretty heavy weights in pump and my HR is always super high during combat (love that class!!)

    Should I just cut right back on my weights in pump? I think it's combat thats making me more nervous than anything given how high my HR gets and also how hot it gets!

    I find if my heartrate gets too high or I start to overheat I either slow right down or stop and have some water & quick break to recover - everyone is different and your body will let you know ;-)

    Great thread. I'm another one who needs to get back into exercise before much longer- I'm 18 weeks now and haven't done any exercise since about 6 weeks. I was quite active before pregnancy, was training for the Bridge to Brisbane when I found out- I stopped as to do it in the time I wanted to I was pushing myself really hard to the point of feeling dizzy (I know that's bad!) but I was worried about potentially starving baby of oxygen! Then morning sickness kicked in and I was too sick to do anything for weeks. Feeling better now but trying to figure out where to start. I was thinking of walking, (the problem is it's too hot in QLD at the moment to walk during most of the day and twilight lasts for all of about fifteen minutes!) swimming now it's getting hot, or pregnancy exercise classes. I was looking at the preggi bellies website today and they look really good- a bit exxy though! My other issue is that being a shift worker it's difficult to keep to a regular routine which has always been an issue but I think I'm using it as even more of an excuse now not to get back into exercise.
    So anyway, that's me! It's encouraging reading that other people are also pregnant and getting back into exercise. Fingers crossed I manage to get started again soon too!

    Hello
    I am 4.5 weeks pregnant and before I fell pregnant I had just started doing Zumba. I am wondering whether its something that would be ok to continue with or whether I should choose something a little less strenuous? I am unfit and do find it very hardwork but at the same time i really enjoy it. I am keen to increase my fitness levels throughout the pregnancy as I know being physically fit is a huge help with labour and birth. Any advice would be great, thankyou

    Hi! If you find it very strenuous I would be careful. Can you get a heart rate monitor that would be good so you can make sure you don't go over 140bpm. I think zumba in general is fine though as its low impact.

    It's definitely good to be doing something. You can always have a breather or do low impact options when required.
