I'm not pregnant just yet, me and my partner have only been ttc for a month. I run most days. Generally only 4 or 5km. I was wondering if anybody continued to run whilst they were pregnant? I didn't do it during my last pregnancy, it is just something I started after giving birth. I love it so much, such a great way to clear my head and get DS out of the house in the pram.
Hi Laura Jane
I was pregnant when I did my half marathon in July .. only newly but still - it was great to know my little Bug ran the race with me as one of his first acheivements.
I kept jogging as much as I could, but I had terrible morning sickness so I really did not feel like it. I cut down to 7-10kms as soon as I found out I was pregnant, and soon only topped 3-4kms.
My Dr was happy with that and I wore my HR monitor and stayed a speed that enabled me to stay under 150bpm.
Now I am 24 weeks with a moody pelvis so I am only walking the dog, pilates and aqua aerobics.
Since you are running before you are pregnant it will be fine to keep running, but listen to your body, listen to you medical support people and just tone it down a little (no sprint hill intervals ok!).
Enjoy getting out there - I cannot wait to join you on the roads come April smile
