    Default Keeing active through pregnancy

    I've not kept very activethrough this pregnancy so decided that from this week I would do some things. There's a park with a walking track arund it that has a play round visiblefrom the track in every part f it so this afternoon myd aughter and I went t that park and walked thenshe played on the play equipent while I did some mre laps.

    What do you do when pregnant? Last time I was pretty active walking and did lots of swimming through te summer months as well, I was prengnat the while summer whereas this time it's mostly the cooler months.

    With ds1 I walked, heaps. I didn't have my licence though so was more of a need. It was good though, kept me active.

    With ds2 I was a couch potato and honestly, it made me feel worse. Not depressed just I lacked energy because I was so sedate.

    If I was to have another child I would look into pilates (sp? That can't be right )

    I've been the same, a couch potato. Having a job probably helped keep me motivated, you know the morning walk before work routine, that's gone now because I now have a school age child and at 8am she's still getting ready for school then after the school run I will come home and do ironing and boring stuff that requires no physical energy.

    My first baby was breech, so after that I was very mindful about not slouching, reclining/lying down and being sedentary (not that I was sedentary with her), but subsequent pregnancies I remained quite active and when I wasn't running after toddlers etc, I did heaps of walking, pre natal Yoga and aqua aerobics (in winter -heated pool). This was after months of the dreaded all day morning sickness though.

    I definitely think after baby no 2, I was a lot more active due to the sheer fact of running around after small kiddies! I think being active helps you when it comes time to keeping supple and also when its time give birth and you need stamina and energy etc.

    I'm 24 wks and still doing a spin class 2-3 times a week and going for a walk 1-2 times a week as well.
    Obviously I can't flog myself in the spin classes like I used to and as my bump expands I look quite wonky peddling on the bike but I'm determined to stay active as its better all round for me and bub!

    This time around I am trying to stay more active but am not doing as much as I planned. I am managing to do a pregnancy pilates class weekly and an aqua fitness class (heated local pool) but I wish I had the motivation and energy to walk more.

    Interesting. I was on strict bed rest from 13 weeks to about 26 weeks and the last 10 weeks I have been allowed to do some things, but definitely not exercise, lifting etc. Bub is breech, I wonder if it is related?

    I had plans for doing aqua aerobics and walking, but instead I have done nothing and it has nearly driven me insane. I just want to get out of the house and do stuff.

    Can't wait to have bub here and get out walking with the pram.

    I have a bellydancing class once a week that I was doing before pregnancy. And I try to go for a bit of a walk at lunch time everyday.

    I have so far been too morning sick 24/7 to move. I was fit and active per preg. But it is hard to get back into a fitness routine cos I'm constantly worrying about over doing it after losing a bit of fitness. I would love to do what I was doing (pump and spin classes etc) but its just too much for me now
