    Hi everyone!

    You may have already heard that the Bub Hub is about to be a TV series!

    We're filming six episodes for the local 31 channel up here in Brisbane and the first episode is about Pregnancy Health.

    We'll have experts Kate di Prima and Paula Hindle as guests on the show and we want to ask them some questions on PREGNANCY HEALTH AND FITNESS from real mums-to-be!

    What would you like to know about PREGNANCY HEALTH, NUTRITION and FITNESS?

    Maybe something on one of the following topics: healthy eating, foods to avoid, pregnancy weight gain, morning sickness, active birth, pregnancy and postnatal exercise, return to sport/running, abdominal separation and pelvic floor/incontinence?

    Thanks!

    Hi - I've found it really difficult to get clear, trustworthy information about whether and how much I can exercise in pregnancy.
    For women who are already very fit, what are the restrictions on exercise? I know that unfit women shouldn't suddenly start exercising, but I normally do 4 intense workouts a week - weights, body pump, body attack, RPM, studio pilates, reformer pilates.
    I asked my doctor and obstetrician but they were vague and said exercise is good but "don't overdo it" and "don't overheat." I asked the exercise instructors and they said "take it easy" and "go slow." It's hard to know what this means. I don't want to just walk around the block or swim a few laps, I want to exercise.
    Precise info about what you CANNOT do, and why not, would be helpful.
    Tonight I went to reformer pilates and did loads of intense ab exercises, pushups, dynamic planks etc and am just hoping that this is all ok and doesn't hurt the baby.

    Same here not pregnant yet, but I love body combat, running and lifting weights! Just want to know what's safe when I do become preggers!

    I agree, we need better info on exercise. Before being pregnant, I played soccer. Obviously contact sports are out now but I would love to get back into soccer after bub is here. I want to know when its ok to get back into training and how soon I can play again. I want to know what I can do in the meantime to maintain my strength and fitness.

    I agree with PPs. I heard opposite advice son whether I could keep running or not while pregger. I stopped at 3mths as a physio told me it wasn't good for my pelvic floor (increased pressure on it). But I have seen pregnant ladies keep up with the running a lot later in their pregnancies.

    Thanks for your opinion

    I'd like more information on medication during pregnancy. Things you can't take or should be avoiding. Especially medication for common pregnancy complaints - gas, heartburn, UTI, muscle pain etc.

    Thanks for all the questions so far!

    Does anyone have questions about pregnancy weight gain, healthy eating, morning sickness etc?

    I would love to know more about gestational diabetes. What levels your bsl should be before and after meals and what can you do to help lower that without medications. How soon should you test after a meal. Are tablets or insulin better. And how can not taking the medications affect bub and mum.

    It'd be good to get the official word on whether already overweight mums who don't 'diet' but lose weight are ok. I had conflicting information. I was told by a nutritionist it was ok, and personally didn't see any harm in losing weight as long as I was consuming the appropriate amount of calories in appropriate forms. But the dr was upset to learn I had lost almost 10kgs thanks to morning sickness.
