    Morning girls I am off to yoga. Getting hard on these cold early mornings but DS crawled into my bed at 4:30am so I have been awake since then anyway. I didn't get a chance to do anything yesterday due to work etc so I intend to make up for it today.
    Anyone else doing yoga? If so how long do you intend to keep doing it? My yoga instructor says it's possible to do it right along but I think it will be hard once I have a big belly...

    I've done body balance the whole way thru pregnancy before.

    I'm off to do 40min on the cross trainer before work... That's if my kids move at normal speed vs their slow amble today !!!

    So I've just booked the kids into the gym crèche this morning so I can go do body pump. First time back at the gym in over a month due to morning sickness. Still have limited energy so planning on doing very light weights but fingers crossed I feel more energised afterwards.

    Hi girls...

    I just did my first aerobics class since finding out I'm expecting #1 and I feel like I've run a marathon! I didn't even go very hard because I have a bit of an injury. I wear a heart rate monitor and just walking up the stairs my heart rate was 135! Is this normal? I feel really out of breath but I know I haven't worked very hard

    Go girls! You are all going great guns!!

    I definitely toned down the intensity, especially in the first trimester. By the second trimester I felt okay to get my heart rate up again. I guess it's just about what feels best for you body and mind... I was a little more anxious for the first 12 weeks but once we passed that milestone I felt I could push a bit harder again.

    I am so glad I kept exercising, where others have had pain and discomfort in their third trimester I've felt great, except for a little tired (low iron). I'm going to go up and down some stairs today, but that's more to encourage the baby to come out rather than for fitness haha!

    Yes absolutely! I did a triathlon when 5 weeks Preg with DS and almost died despite being really fit. I didn't know I was pregnant at the time but really struggled to breath during the run and got so dizzy. The hormones are responsible I think. But you will probably find that 2nd trimester you may have a bit more cardio fitness again.
    It's a big pregnancy symptom for me, the sudden onset of feeling extremely unfit, lol.
    I'm just trying to listen to my body and if I need to walk during my runs I do without guilt. And finding flat places to run/walk for now ☺️

    Went for a jog this morning, only about 5k but it felt ok (just a little 30 second walk break here and there). This afternoon though, different story. Felt absolutely wiped out for the rest of the day, had a little snooze in the sun while DS napped. Could have stayed horizontal for the rest of the day quite happily. This tiredness bites!
