    Default How much exercise is recommended

    I am at week 26 and it is getting harder to do Bodypump and Bodycombat at the gym.

    I am trying to aim to stop these at week 28 or week 29 when the belly is extremely large and will probably switch to walking and swimming

    Does anyone know how much exercise is recommended for the final trimester?

    My ob told me to keep doing whatever I wanted, but whatever it was I had to be able to hold a conversation/keep breathing normally while doing so.... which for me ruled out anything but walking/swimming really!

    I walk daily, do prenatal yoga and 2 prenatal aqua aerobics sessions a week. That's all I can do at 29 weeks, I'm buggered. You have done well to keep up with combat up to now, I gave away my les mills classes in the first trimester I couldn't keep up.

    I've never heard a definitive answer on this one, probably because there isn't one. Most people will tell you to do as much as feels comfortable, and not to push yourself. Starting prenatal yoga or pilates shouldnt be an issue except it may be a good idea not to extend yourself fully doing any yoga poses, as the relaxin hormone that the body produces while pregnant can make you feel much more flexible than you really are and its easy to go too far into a stretch without realising. Just tell the instructor that you're new to it and you should be fine.

    I've just been sticking to walking, once bub has arrived and inhale recovered properly I plan on getting back into running or light jobs ASAP. I find even walking with hubby if I talk too much I get out of breath fairly easily,don't want to push it. 28 weeks today
