Congratulations! And it is definitely okay not to work out for a bit! About 3 years ago I had surgery and was out of commission for about 8 weeks. It comes back so quick, it is like you never left. Take the time and take care of yourself.
I have been following posts on CF site as well, and quite a few preggo xfitters...there biggest suggestion is go extremely LIGHT, scale your workouts for your situation and listen to your body...face it, you will have to modify, but you don't have to throw all out the window, and just think after baby has arrived, put them in a front pack and do air squats with them!!! LOL
As most of you know (or maybe you don't), I'm pregnant! As thrilled as I am, I can't help but feel that the last 6 months worth of WOD-killing is going down the drain. I'm not deliberately skipping going to the gym, I just have NO energy and the morning sickness/nausea is rampant throughout the days. I was hoping that when I did go, the sickness would subside, but actually it didn't really help. I have a hard time "catching my breath" and am struggling with weights that were previously a piece of cake. I know that I'm supposed to lower intensity, but I can't even muster the energy to go...even getting to work is a struggle these days. This is my 2nd pregnancy, so I know to expect this,but this is also my first with CF. I'm needing some encouragement and some "it's ok to not workout for a bit", because the withdrawal symptoms suck right along with morning sickness.
