    I would actually think spin would be one of the better cardios for pg women bc it's low impact. As long as you aren't getting your temp up really high it should be fine.

    I personally can't do spin because of a prior tailbone/pelvic injury and I find the seat pressure is too much. I think otherwise it would be fine as long as you don't get too hot like delirium said

    I think I'm in my final weeks of running (very slowly) already. My friend was saying she got up to 24 weeks but I think I'll be through with running around 22 (next week).

    Though my bump doesn't look huge, it is starting to press down on my bladder when I run. Not a good look or feeling....

    Never mind, was good while it lasted.

    Hope you're all travelling well with the fitness thing. It can be hard some days, but with the weather hopefully warming up soon, hoping to have more incentive to get out for walks.

    I'm in the same boat here. Haven't been this week due to a cold but last (21 weeks) I was having the same discomfort. I will see how I go next week. I'm going to miss its head clearing magic

    I saw my ob for the first time recently and he said that running is fine but stationary bike is NOT after 20 weeks, for balance.

    I'm not a big runner or spinner either way, but I enjoy cross training and doing intervals, so I run for 30 seconds and walk for 30 seconds etc and will continue to do so until I can.

    How far along are you Embee?

    I'm seeing my OB tomorrow. I'm 24 weeks and still running up to 5km broken up by walking for 2-3 mins a couple of times a week.

    I feel good now whereas a two weeks a go I thought I was done.

    I hope the OB is ok with me continuing.

    Only 10 weeks. If you've always been a runner it should be fine.

    OB completely happy with me still running. I have a slight ab separation from my first pregnancy which he is keeling an eye on. He will give me an abdominal binder if it worsens. Happy running

    I think I ran until second trimester. Some run till much later...as far as I know it's fine as long as you had the fitness before and don't start running out of the blue during pregnancy!

    Being at risk for certain medical conditions can halt even seasoned runners from running during pregnancy. Always consult your physician before embarking on an exercise program while you're expecting.
    "Problems can include placenta previa, preterm labor, short cervix, preeclampsia, or a growth restricted baby," says Dr. Annette Perez-Delboy, MD of Columbia Eastside in New York. If you suffer from any of these conditions, it's going to be time-out for you until your baby arrives.
