I use to be a daily walker but I am suffering round ligament pain which makes it difficult to walk briskly or for long periods. My fitness has already decreased and I would love to find something I can do to keep fit, I thought aqua aerobics or swimming might be good as the water may support me better. I want to be as fit as possible so I have a better recovery after the birth. I would love to hear from others experiences and what they did to over come the round ligament pain to stay fit

Fantastic that you are keeping up with exercise. Try and massage (sweeping) down the underside of your belly to your pubic bone after a shower (when muscles are nice and warm). Just light pressure will do.. This is gradually release the ligament outs tension you may be experiencing. As you go further into your pregnancy and get better you may want to consider a physio or chro (even pregnancy massage). Try and find ones that work on the round ligament in particular.
Hope that helps.
