Nurses are NOT doctors. They specialize in patient care, not medical diagnosis.
If they disagree on medical advice, ALWAYS follow your doctor's orders.

And trust what your doctor says rather than a book or website. Question them if you find contradictory information, but they know you medical conditions and history, and they are giving you a custom diagnosis. If you really want a second opinion, see another doctor in person.

IMHO your nurse has NO business to contradict your doctor's medical advice. I would tell your doctor. She could hurt someone by giving out bad medical advice.

I usually get most of my exercise biking. I can do the commute one way fairly easily since the buses have bike racks, and that's 13 miles or an hour plus of pretty good work out.

Now that I'm pregnant my Obgyn, said it was okay to bike until I start to have trouble balancing, but the nurse says that several other doctors suggest against it.

I'm particularly concerned, because what to Expect when you're expecting says to avoid exercising near too much traffic, and my commute ride takes me along (but protected from) the freeway for a good chunk.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Sarah
