    Hi ladies do you mind if I join? I'm
    Nearing 6 weeks and still want to keep up my training. Struggling today after a big PT session and 12km walk/run yesterday. Plan to keep doing PT and bootcamp until around 34 weeks if possible. I really enjoy training and came so far to get a lot of weight off before I fell pregnant again.

I have been on iron (on top of prenatal vits) since the start as my iron dropped quite low in the 3rd trimester of my first pregnancy. Also vitamin D, but hopefully being pregnant in the qld summer will take care of that for me this time round 😉
    Id forgotten that iron could be why I'm so tired. I was taking a folate/iron tablet for about the first 10 weeks but it clogged me up so much that I stopped taking it. Might get it checked and go back on the tablets if I need to. Even just a basic multi vitamin might help.
    I walk ds1 to and from school which is about a 20 min round trip twice a day so that should be plenty of Vit D.

    Welcome! Look after yourself, not sure about you but for me between 7-10 weeks I couldn't do much more than walk as working out made me want to spew (and continue for hours after). So you're doing great if you manage to avoid the nausea/ms!

    I think it's possible to keep working out until full term as long as you don't have any complications etc. but also to recognise when your body is telling you it needs to rest!

    I remember cursing myself during my labor with DS. My quads/calves were burning because I'd done a mountain climb a few days earlier, at 41 weeks! I completely ignored any advice to 'rest up' before labor, lol.

    Nonetheless, if I can keep running and climbing mountains I will. But I might lay off in those last few weeks...

    Wow what an effort doing a mountain climb only days before giving birth @sunnygirl79. Hopefully the pain in your legs gave you some distraction at times from labour.
    This will be my 5th child but first pregnancy I have decided to stay fit and active for. I will also be having a c/s so want to bounce back pretty fast from that too.
    Luckily I have never experienced MS before, hoping it's the same this time around too.

    Omg I'm so jealous you are eating greens!!! I LOVE my vegies but this kid wants nothing to do with it! (Just like its father!) driving me nuts. I'm currently living in oats and berries for breaky, avo, cheese and tomato sandwich for lunch and whatever I can get my hands on for dinner. Always bloody hungry!

    I'm struggling with veggies too. Usually I steam a heap to go with whatever meat dish we have for dinner but I'll pick at them and leave most on the plate. I've discovered that raw veggies are so much nicer at the moment so tonight while everyone is having a side of steamed veg, I've got raw carrot and raw green beans. Yum!

    The Veges thing is only recent. I am more interested and raw veg and salads. But did force myself some blanched broccoli at dinner and it went down fine. Still struggling to get back to eggs for breaky. I'm now on oats or muesli and yoghurt. Pre-pregnancy I was either eggs w spinach, avo and mushrooms or a green smoothy. When I wake up now none of those things appeal...

    So hungry this week. Trying to stick to fruit/veg for snacks but it's harder than usual! Crazy pregnancy hunger is upon me. Still, beats the nausea!

    Still doing a bit of running, swimming and yoga atm. Have done a few Tabata workouts that I have adjusted suitably. I am doing squats instead of jump squats, push-ups instead of burpees, etc. Just listening to my body which is getting tired much more quickly than normal!

    I don't have a bump yet but feeling untoned and flabby. Too scared to do sit-ups now so just doing core exercises to try keep a bit of tone while I still can...
