i'm trying to approach this pregnancy a little differently from my first one. last time, i took it as an excuse to lie on the couch for 9 months and eat mass quantities of ice cream. :icecream: nothing wrong with that, and the end result was still healthy mama/healthy baby, and that's all that matters! but i gained 50 pounds (maybe more!) and had serious joint pain for the last 2 months or so because of all the extra weight on my small/short frame. i got back to my pre-pregnancy weight, and i'd like to stay more active this time throughout my pregnancy. i won't obsess about a number on the scale, because i really believe your body will do what it will do. but i just wondered if anyone had any pregnancy fitness routines that they enjoy or work well for them? or any plans to exercise during pregnancy?
