THE BENEFITS of EXERCISE while PREGGO!

Exercise is WONDERFUL for you at ANY PHASE of your life....but especially while expecting a bundle of joy. I am 13 1/2 weeks along with my 3 child and of course I'm exercising!! However, I've had to "tone it down" these last few weeks due to a complication (no worries baby is fine....just need to get SCH (bleeding in uterus) to GO AWAY! It's been there since 6 weeks...which is why I couldn't run the half marathon I trained for on 10-10-10! It reduced in size signficantly while not running and decreasing weights in bodypump...but it is STILL THERE. So... I've been told to SLOW DOWN and NOT PUSH IT! EASY to say...but HARD to DO! It's been 10 days...and I've just taught 3 classes....doing LOW IMPACT OF COURSE and MORE MOTIVATING than SWEATING...but PRAYING on Wednesday the ultrasound will SHOW that it's GONE! Ready to get back to "normal"!
So... are you getting your SWEAT SESSIONS IN??? If not... do one for me...PLEASE!!! IF you are expecting...check out this article of the BENEFITS (as I've been missing them)!
Hoping you are well!

Way to go! I have to admit I barely did anything with either pregnancy...but I totally would if I ever had another one (a great big IF). :)

I was afraid to move while I was pregnant with my first. I even stopped coaching gymnastics because I was afraid to lift. I never exercised until this year! I was inspired by the pregnant ladies in our class, I had no idea it was safe to do all that! I also had a SCH with Natalie that they discovered at 11 weeks that healed. I'm praying for you! I can't wait for you to tell us it's GONE!
