Most changes were ones my body dictated. I didn't want to drink or smoke (I would have stopped smoking regardless and cut down on drinking, but my body had already said "no thanks")
When i was at the stage you're at, OP, I was still doing everything as normal, I was just as active and eating normal foods (except I cut out soft cheeses like brie and deli meats without heating first, and was cautious about sushi). Then my symtoms kicked in and I had to alter my diet to things that didn't make me too sick, i was too tired to do anything at all let alone go for a run (I went for my last run at about 6.5 weeks). I also got an aversion to coffee so that was out too. I switched to tea, which i could stomach.
Lots of people manage to keep going business as usual, but lots also find the first trimester very debilitating, and it can kick in at any time, so don't beat yourself up if next week you absolutely cannot get out of bed and only want to eat hot chips.

The classes are OK, I am doing the second trimester one now and feel that they could be a little bit more intense although I usually just add to it with push ups, squats etc. It is more about having the motivation to do it…
We are about to move to the USA so it is an interim thing, I am hoping to find some group sessions of pregnancy Pilates and yoga, in the hope of meeting some new people too (starting to get nervous).
I must admit that I have also been eating from the ‘no go’ list of foods if I know that it is fresh and hasn’t been sitting out too long! Agree with sushi - haven't touched it although I wasn't a huge fan before.
So much to look forward too! Congratulations again

I stopped drinking alcohol, stopped eating deli meats, sundaes, soft cheese etc. I exercised the same until about 14 weeks when I stopped doing abs. Reduced coffee/tea to 1-2 per day.

I vomited more and wanted to sleep more, that's about it.

I had to stop my pain meds which was horrible. I wanted to stop them all at once, but knew I would get bad withdrawal symptoms, so I was forced to slowly cut down while knowing that rubbish was still getting through to DS
Other than that, I started to eat more as I was a terrible eater before getting pregnant and started taking Blackmores pregnancy and breastfeeding vitamins.

Taking pregnancy vitamins, dropped my two hour daily speed walk to a two hour moderate walk, dropped my hour's run to half an hour's light jog, sleeping when I feel tired instead of forcing myself to 10pm, eating seeds and nuts instead of M & M's when I feel 'snacky'.
I've also lowered the heat of the shower, not eating canned or takeaway anything, and I'm not using my electric blanket anymore.
DH takes the dogs out in the morning, as the morning greeting contains a lot of leaping, running, nudging, and general tom-foolery. I don't feel like surrounding my newly-precious body with roughly 250 kilos worth of leaping dogs.
