    My OB has ok'd me to continue running and weight training with reduced weight, as that i was doing before about 5 days a week. He said watch heat, exertion level (ie if you can't talk you are going to hard), hydration and comfort. Listen to your body, you will know if it feels ok. Sometimes I feel fine, other days I walk, other days I do nothing.

    Check with your caregiver if you are concerned. Let them guide you. Alternatively if you go to a gym see a personal trainer for a training plan.

    I ran until way past 20 weeks with all of mine. I kept up teaching high impact aerobics and lifting heavy weights until days before I went into labour. Unless yu are high risk there is NO reasonto stop. Just listen to your body

    With DD,I speed-walked for about an hour a day, twice a day. I went from a track champ to pregnancy. I gave up hurdles, vault, and cross country, but kept speed walking and running.

    I also did many squats and lunges every day to help labour.

    I believe it was a huge help in my hour long labour with a 10 pounder!

    With this one, I'm walking, running every second day, and will start squats in a few weeks.

    Think I am out of the running game. I have been really sick with the flu for two weeks and have done nothing. Not sure my body will agree with starting running again. Walking and weights for me

    That is so not true firles and in fact exercise is very good during pregnancy. Running doesn't cause miscarriage or make a baby move to another location in your uterus.

    I agree and the above is a spammer anyway, so ignore them. As long as the woman isn't overheating the body too much it's safe, infact it's healthy to continue sensible exercise all the way thru if possible.

    and not that I should even acknowledge our spammer, but call me crazy here.... running on a treadmill is still running?

    It's great to read so many pregnant women are still out there running

    I am sure we are doing a favor to both ourselves and our bubs, so I don't plan on stopping until my body is telling me so. Then I will prob swap to swimming or just walking.
    Is spin ok when further along in the pregnancy?

    I can't wait to bother my OB with all these questions
