TOM is late. I was sure I had a cyst again like I had earlier this year when I had no period for 5 months, but my SIL convinced me to take a test anyway. Apparently not a cyst!
I spent yesterday in shock. I mean, we weren't trying, but we weren't not trying either... I just wasn't mentally prepared!
We told our parents yesterday, but we are waiting to tell the rest of the family & friends right now since I am only 5 weeks or so. Not sure when we will share the big news yet. Hubby is more excited than I am right now. I am happy, but very much in shock! I just kept staring at that little stick like it had grown horns!
I guess this is a game changer for my Spark plans!
So, my QUESTION FOR ALL OF YOU FIT MAMAS IS:
- How did your fitness routine change when you found out you were pregnant? Did you continue HIIT & listen to your body or did you dump HIIT all together for the time? What about ST?
I have read that it is ok (and even encouraged) to continue exercise through pregnancy & listen to my body to tell me if I am overdoing it, but I want to be cautious not to push too hard since I only started consistent exercise 2 weeks ago (when I was apparently barely pregnant & didn't know it). I want to do whatever is best for both of us.
I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE feedback! I feel like I just got thrown in the deep end!
I just saw this blog! Congratulations, what a great gift! Listen to your body, drink lots of water, move when you can, rest all you want. I had all sorts of intentions during my last pregnancy, but I hardly followed through. Which I certainly regret . Walking is the best, strength train if you can, don't attempt anything extreme. Enjoy this time! Very happy for you.
Wow! Congratulations!!! Just saw your latest blog and came to this one because I had totally missed this!
Super happy for you girl! It is an existing time of year to have this kind of news. I would just maintain your current workouts depending on energy levels for now. I kept very active during my pregnancies. Will have to spark mail you later. Have a little guy with a fever and sore throat in my arms at the moment. Take care ;-) 1826 days ago
WOW!! CONGRATS! I'm not a mama, so I can't help in that area.. but I've seen plenty of fit and (VERY) pregnant ladies walking on the treadmill at the gym and whatnot.. there are so many fit mamas on sparkpeople, you've got a wealth of support and information here! I'm sure with the healthy habits you've developed this far, you'll be able to stay in tip top shape, for you and baby! 1830 days ago
Congratulations!!! Sorry, I can't help you on the fitness questions as I have no experience but I would think you could just listen to your body. I would ask your doctor about it. 1831 days ago
