Hi! I am new here. I am 13 weeks pregnanct and at a tug of war with my hormones! One minute I am nice and next I am the wife from hell!!!
I have become a real B*TCH the last few days/weeks. All I can put this down to is the fact I have gone from exercising daily to nothing (maybe a walk from time to time) and my diet being far more unhealthy than it used to be.
I am trying to change my diet and get back into exercise now the fatigue and nausea has gone, does anyone have any suggestions for tackling those crazy hormones?

i dont think theres much u can do hormones wise, but if u feel better within yourself, then u will be happier.
a fruit salad and a trip to the gym makes me feel really good/happy. (odd??)

Totally understand that a fruit salad and the gym help you feel better - does the same for me
Although hubby has been a bit funny about exercise. I told him I wanted to go for a jog the other day and he just said "if you want to risk it" ... like I was putting our baby's life at risk by exercising!! Grrrrr

He is just being paranoid.have u got a heart ratw monitor by any chance? I got one from ebay and have been using it to make sure my heart rate doesnt exceed 150, and ive been doing zumba 2x a week and then the gym another two times, where i go on the cross trainer and treadmill etc. As long as ur not over heating and your heart rate isnt going mad, u can definitely exercise, its really beneficial. Im hoping i wont have any medical reason to stop, but so far so good.

Yep have a HRM and have been working out for almost 2 years on a daily basis, trying to reassure him I know what I am doing and am watching my HR and making sure it stays under 150 BPM and not overheating ... he is just worried with this being our first baby I suppose. But whenever I try to explain it to him we end up having a fight!

My pump instructor still did pump, combat and attack classes until she was 36 weeks pregnant!
I'm only 5 weeks but I'm doing pump classes and jogging every day, just wearing my HRM and making sure it's about 150bpm.
I know what I'm like if I don't exercise, I get so grumpy and snappy, not worth it. Plus, I put on sooo much weight with my first so I'm scared it'll happen again if I don't work out.

My husband was a pt for a few years and did the pregnancy training course. It states that whatever you do training wise you should continue during pregnancy as long as you watch you heart rate. Because I never do anything apart from walking I shouldn't start now.
So if you were doing alot of classes before I would definantly continue. Gone are the days when you fell pregnant and the dr says sit on the lounge and don't exercise.
