Can I Do High Intensity Exercise During Pregnancy

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
There are very few articles for the very fit, big exerciser, falling pregnant. Should one cut back? How much? There are stories about Russian athletes who were made pregnant just before the Olympics as women are strongest in their first three months of pregnancy... any news on those kind of stories. Advice for the super-fit rather than those trying to get fit?

That would be great.

Thanks.
Karin

Can I Ski While Pregnant?

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
I just recently found out I'm pregnant. My family has been planning a Christmas vaction trip to Colorado to go skiing. Can I ski? I will be 8/9 weeks pregnant. I'm a very cautious skier on blues. Could I do easy green slopes or is it to dangerous? Do you have to fall hard to miscarry? We usually ski twice a year for a week. I have been running the past 8 months -- 12 miles a week and aerobics the past 2 years.
