So who is trying to stay on the exercise bandwagon throughout this pregnancy?
To be honest I'm not a big work-out person but I like sports and activity so I usually have something going on and while I have never been "fit" or "skinny" I have generally fit into the healthy range of weights for my height. (Unfortunately creeping from the lower half of that range to the higher end since I met my husband)
When I got pregnant with Alex I was playing floor and street hockey regularly but I pretty much quit the day I found out I was pregnant, didn't exercise at all throughout the pregnancy, and I gained about 45lbs total. (Eep!) After Alex was born the majority of the weight fell off in the first three months (just walking) but I let myself hover about 10lbs above my pre-pregnancy weight until after Christmas. Now I have been exercising regularly (mostly running/hockey/some DVD workouts) since Jan 1st and I am actually 10lbs below where I was when I found out I was preggo with Alex. I have even been contemplating seeing if my wedding dress would fit (but I would hate to be disappointed!) and I am trying SOOOOOO hard to stay motivated to keep up with my exercise this time around and to try and generally have a healthier pregnancy. The last couple weeks have been hard because on top of being so tired and some come-and-go nausea I have also had a cold.
Anyways, this is getting really long... my point... I would really really love to have some other ladies to help keep me motivated with exercise. Also if anyone has any stories about the differences they saw between pregnancies when exercising vs not exercising I think that would be really motivational as well! So back to my original question - who is exercising and plans to continue on?
