Sorry for the long post! I'm getting very frustrated about the exercise issue. I'm 13 weeks and I'm just getting nothing from either my OB or my GP. Here's a sample of conversations:
Me: So I want to stay fit and healthy while I'm pregnant. What can I do and what can't I do? I usually do aerobics but not sure about that?
GP: Anything is fine, just don't get overheated.
Me: What does that mean? No sweat?
GP: If you overheat you'll have a miscarriage, just be careful.
Me: What type of exercise can I do? I want to stay reasonably fit and healthy.
OB: Whatever you were doing before is fine ... actually, what were you doing before?
Me: Two Step and two Attack classes per week. I'm into cardio.
OB: Well you can't do that. You're a bit obsessive aren't you?
Me: Um, no, maybe? I won't do those classes if you tell me not to, but what can I do?
OB: Here, read this pamphlet.
Pamphlet talks about light yoga. Yoga gives me a migraine. If that's really all I can do, then I'll just deal with it and walk. It's just that cardio was my stress relief and I do want to stay fit. I just feel like because I'm not overweight, no one is taking this request for information seriously! Hence, I've nothing for months.
Anyone had any luck getting a firm response from medicos about this? I was actually expecting to get some kind of temperature/heartrate guide, although that may have been too much to expect...
