It is a common misconception amongst many women that pregnancy means a few months of feeling fat and frumpy. This should not be the case. In fact, pregnant women should embrace their beautiful pregnant selves and have fun translating their signature look into their temporary new body shape.
Pampering Your Pregnancy
I just turned 30 and after being told at the age of 18 that it would be difficult for me to have children, I have 2 beautiful boys and a third baby on the way. We are able to conceive the first month we tried this time and I'm very excited. I'm also nervous because my second son was a high risk pregnancy.

Dear Fitness Expert,
I am 5 weeks pregnant and teach an Aqua Boot Camp class three mornings a week for an hour. The class includes 5-7 minutes of warm-up, 40 minutes of hi/low intensity exercises, 3-5 minutes of abs, and 10 minutes of cool-down/stretching. We burn about 700 calories during the class.
I drink water throughout class and am able talk throughout the class. Is it safe to continue teaching and is there a time during the pregnancy that I will have to decrease my intensity level?
Thanks for your help!
Get up in the morning, jump into a pair of jeans and by afternoon it's two sizes too small! During the "in between weeks" of pregnancy many women notice that by the end of the day their belly has expanded outward. What's the mom-to-be to do?
I just found out yesterday that I was pregnant. And the bloodwork just came back this morning so I talked to my doctor. And I am infact pregnant. Probably only a few weeks. Since this is the first time pregnancy for me, I'd like to know as much about what to expect, stories, everything on pregnancy. I have a few books including What to Expect When Expecting, i just want to know all different things from all aspects. I'm very excited and so is my fiance, but yet I'm also very nervous because all I can think about is the pain parts of pregnancy, espesially labor, and I'm not good with pain.
