    Default Could this be pregnancy related?

    Ok, so I am currently in my 2WW (due to test on feb 6th), and was wondering if anyone thought this symptom could be pregnancy related.

    I have always been very fit. I run 10km at least 3 x per week, play soccer 3 x per week, swim 1 x per week and do pilates 1 x per week. Two days ago, I was doing my usual 10k - which I normally do continuous, I never really ever stop - and I barely made it to 3k without getting hugely short of breath/feeling like mt limbs just could go no further. Today was the same.. I struggled. Then I also noticed some little cramps (period-like cramps, I never ever get AF early so I doubt it's that). WDYT? Should I lay off the exercise until I test?!

    Thanks everyone

    How many DPO are you? I have always been an active sports person too and when pregnant I noticed exactly what you are experiencing. From really early on too. If you are in fact pregnant you need to be careful not to overheat and keep your HR under 150bpm. When pregnant you will find your HR escalates a lot quicker and higher than usual and you are often very short of breath. You have a greatly increased blood volume too which puts added pressure on your heart.

    Thanks Mumsical!! I am guessing I would be approx 9 dpo, but I didn't opk this month so I could be a bit off there.

    To be safe I think I will just go easy until next week when I will test

    I'm used to 6-8km a day and once I fell pregnant I could barely do 1km.
