Any of you ladies exercised during your pregnancy? If so, what worked for you?

I try to do some walking but I get really tired and I feel so sleepy 24/7.

Hey Suze, I did work out a little. Mainly just walking and stretching. The stretching was a huge lifesaver for me. It really helped during my pregnancy, labor/delivery and after birth. It also helped me kind of slow down a bit and relax at the end of the day. And I may or may not have dozed a bit during those stretches. LOL!

I had no workout.  I admit it, I am too lazy for it nor have motivation.   My mind says to do it but my legs don't do anything but want to sleep and lay in bed.

I didn't work out at all I probably should have but honestly I was just lazy. I wish now that I would have been on that healthy path the whole pregnancy. I feel like it would have helped the baby weight come off a little bit faster.

During my first pregnancy I did pregnancy yoga and it helped because of all the stretching and with my back pain. Then with my third I was part of an abrobics class until about 25 weeks then switched to machines to keep up the cardio and it helped out the most. So I recommend exercise to women who are pregnant because it definitely helps with labor.

I did yoga while pregnant as well. It was a nice slow paced work out but really kept me limber and relaxed for the birth. I also highly recommend finding some kind of exercise that works for you during pregnancy!

I recommend a type of exercise that works for you. For instance, did you work out before pregnancy? If you did anything even walking a certain amount each day then you should really continue that. It is good for you and the baby. I got a Yoga for pregnancy DVD off of Amazon (though you can look it up some exercises on YouTube as well for free). There are different varieties for each trimester you are in. It will really help your mind and body feel better!

This might start a fiery debate.  First, I would like to state that I am no one to speak from experience since I have not giving birth.  It is on the plan but I am not preggo yet.  Okay so, I am an active CrossFit who does lift heavy weight so I do believe that if and when I get pregnant I will continue this type of exercise regimen.  Obviously not nearly to the amount of weight I currently lift.  But I firmly believe in CrossFit as a form of exercise as well.  Specially if this is something your body is already used to.  I have done alot of research on this and I have even spoken to many ladies who have done or are doing this already.  They have giving positive remarks on this.

 

Any CrossFitters in here?

I did CrossFit work outs until about 5 months then it was way too much so I cut back to daily walks and some pregnancy yoga. My pediatrician actually had said I could have continued since I had done the workouts before I was pregnant but with being as tired as I was, i wasn’t benefiting from it. Yoga worked great! I still do it now (you know when you get about 10 mins while baby naps lol)

Camyrn posted this 24 August 2018

With my first, I didn't exercise, but with this one, I'm walking more. I gained a lot of weight after my first was born and I refuse to gain that much after this time as well!

Brianna posted this 25 August 2018

I'm not pregnant, but I walk 3 miles a day. I want to try to keep it up since people say it helps with after when you go back to a normal routine. We'll see though!

Im an avid runner and I did that up until it just wasn’t possible or comfortable anymore. I ended up just walking a lot and did a little yoga to help so I didn’t stiffen up. Although walking became uncomfortable too, it definitely helped a lot. I had hip problems my whole life so I think if I avoided any exercise that I would have had a lot of issues and more pain.

Ashley posted this 26 August 2018

I'm glad to hear it helped! I'm definitely going to do some walking to help with delivery when the time comes. I'll also work on my eating as well. I can't keep eating off my 2 yr old's plate! LOL!

Courtnee posted this 26 August 2018

I plan to do a little something. LOL! I do a little walking with my friend, but that's about it. I need to get healthy before baby comes so they will have a good example.

Susan posted this 26 August 2018

I still do a lot of zumba and weights. I will take it down a notch to some treadmill when i get close to the delivery.

I played volleyball in the beginning of my pregnancy but I stopped exercising once the season was over. I was beat! LOL!

I agree with Courtnee! I want to set a good example for a healthy lifestyle...to me, it's less about being skinny or looking good (although those things don't hurt!!! LOL)...but setting the example for our kids that even if we just walk for a period of time, it's about taking care of our bodies! I love this post! I would also love to start stretching out the right way! I don't think I do it right! LOL

Heather posted this 27 August 2018

Very rarely worked out. But when you are tired and anxious it is hard to find the motivation. At least walking extra would be something good but again the lack of motivation..

Gladys posted this 27 August 2018

Same here. Walking has been my go to workout and it gets me pretty sleepy as well. But I love a good walk before a cozy nap!

Eva posted this 28 August 2018

I like dancing, it keeps me toned and no undue pressure on my belly.

Ginger posted this 29 August 2018

I was a runner before I had my first...turned into a jogger...and gradually slowed to a walker by the end of that pregnancy. lol. Now I mainly walk for exercise even when I'm not pregnant. I love Zumba but my nausea does not.  

Adelita posted this 29 August 2018

TTC - but I plan on sticking with Zumba and maybe some modified yoga. I love walking too and get plenty of steps in with my dog so hopefully that helps too!

Kalee posted this 30 August 2018

exercise... what is that? hahaha.. I was too damn lazy and tired and I still am.  I never been an active person.

Sadie posted this 30 August 2018

I have done yoga prior to the pregnancy so that is what i stuck too, which I am sure it helped for the deliverance.

Dina posted this 30 August 2018

To be honest, I didn't work out. I had really bad morning sickness the first trimester and after that, I was always tired. I did however walk a lot towards the end of my pregnancy because I wanted to get this baby out! lol after 2 weeks of consistent walking, he came right out!

Dina posted this 30 August 2018

yes I think this is true. I am totally doing this with my second baby. hopefully I have a better pregnancy 

I would like to exercise till the day i deliver! It helps with loosing the baby weight afterwards.

Josie posted this 30 August 2018

I tried to do a couple of yoga moves in my second trimester, but after that I just walked when I felt okay. 

Sandra posted this 30 August 2018

Don't push yourself too much to work out... If your body is tired, then let yourself rest. Whenever you feel like you have more energy than normal try going for a walk or do some light stretches to get your blood circulating. 

anto posted this 31 August 2018

With my first baby I didn't do much exercise. Which is probably why its harder for me to lose the weight now. However, with baby number 2 I plan on going consistently to the gym

Gabriel posted this 31 August 2018

Stretching is a life saver! Pregnant or not, your body feels better every day you stretch. I stretch every morning and most evenings. I think walking is an obvious one that really helps with everything. It's not rigorous, but still keeps your heart rate up and muscles working, I have also heard that daily exercise makes a difference on your labor pains, I haven't experienced it yet, but I hope so!

Mary posted this 03 September 2018

I just did a bit of walking. I felt that it helped and was easy on my body. I also tried stretching and doing some yoga which was fun as well. You have to try it and see what works best for you. 

Kris posted this 03 September 2018

I never did any exercise before pregnancy. So when I got pregnant I tried my best to do short walks and stretching every now and then.

Kristi posted this 03 September 2018

I've exercised during my pregnancy.  I mainly walked (we have a dog), stretched and did light arm weights.  I found that walking not only got in some steps and made my body feel good but it also has been a great time to walk some stress and nerves out....a great time to just think!  The stretching has been great for my lower back and hip area. 

Hannah posted this 04 September 2018

Honestly, most of the time I was too lazy, but I did attempt some yoga a couple of times. I enjoyed stretching as well. I think it would have helped a lot if I kept up with it. 

Ingrid posted this 05 September 2018

I walked all the time the first time I was pregnant... In my opinion, it helped me with not being tired. On days that I felt worse, I allowed myself time to rest, and I am doing the same thing this time around. 

Joann posted this 05 September 2018

I did a lot of walking during pregnancy! I loved it, but for some reason I had a lot more energy then I thought I was going to while I was pregnant! Walking helped relax me so I tried to walk a little everyday. 

Alaca posted this 05 September 2018

I tried walking and pregnancy yoga but ended up not keeping up with it.  I guess just like many here, I got lazy.  At the begging I was excited to give it a try and I did like it but I just didn't stay consistant.

Yes I did. Just light exercise though

I did with my first one. Helped with the weight also

Jackie posted this 14 October 2018

I avoided working out in my first trimester, but have started back up now that I'm in my second.  I've found it to really make a difference in how I feel.. and if everything I read is correct, I'm hoping it will help me bounce back faster after I have the baby.  *Fingers crossed*

Rosemary posted this 14 October 2018

I love prenatal yoga! I'm told it can also help with breathing and relaxing techniques when you go into labor too. 

Susan posted this 15 October 2018

I'm 4 months and feel really tired as well. Before getting pregnant I was super active and go to the gym daily. Right now I have no motivation. I hope it doesn't last long as I like being active. Just right now, I've been feeling super tired everyday

Lisa posted this 15 October 2018

Walking was my go-to, but zumba was fun for when I needed to break things up. It got more interesting the bigger I got, but it was a lot of fun. If you have the terrain for it, spice up your walks to make it more interesting. I would try new parks with a friend or maybe take on a hike if it's an easy trail. I can't stand walking on a track. If walking is just a no all around, try some yoga or swimming. Swimming was great as I got bigger. It loosened everything up for me - especially my back muscles and hips. 

Jane posted this 15 October 2018

I did yoga and zumba when I was pregnant with my son. This time around I've been slacking. Honestly I walk my dog in the morning and walk my son to the park around lunch time and that's it. I should be hitting 10K in steps a day but I've been avoiding my FitBit.. I don't want a reminder of how lazy I'm being. lol 

Jessica posted this 20 October 2018

I walk a lot.. and do some light lifting with a trainer.  I feel so much better on days when I do something. But there are certainly days that's its hard to get off the couch!

Leighton posted this 20 October 2018

I agree with a lot of the women in here.  Some sort of regimen will help with baby weight.  For me, I continued to lift weights every day just because those darn car seats are heavy!!! haha.  Prenatal yoga is amazing, I didn't succeed though because I have no balance and no focus sometimes and the whole timed breathing didn't work for me.  Didn't work in delivery either.  Walking and what they call curb walking helps tremendously in the last trimester!

Kim posted this 20 October 2018

Yeah, I'm definitely planning on keeping up my routine for as long as possible. I'd heard it's extremely beneficial to do so. 

Briana posted this 20 October 2018

I couldn't do anything the first trimester because I felt so sick. When that was over, I rode the bike at the gym for 30 min five days a week, and now I walk up hills for 30 min, five days a week. I'm 33 weeks and plan to do this as long as I can. 

Tiana posted this 21 October 2018

I was HUGE on fitness before I got pregnant so I continued to workout for as long as I could! I had a preterm labor scare so I haven’t been able to workout and it’s extremely frustrating!

Alice posted this 21 October 2018

I worked out a lot before I got pregnant and continued to my entire pregnancy. My doc gave me the ok so I did. Lifted weights, of course modified but no problems. I think its important to always ask your doctor if you plan to workout during pregnancy. 

Ashely posted this 21 October 2018

Exercising has made me feel 10x better! It’s always so difficult to get the motivation but once i’m done I feel so great and sleep even better!

Ky posted this 21 October 2018

Stretching is always great, i’m usually way too tired to do anything else!  

Jen posted this 21 October 2018

I waited to get through my first trimester, but now i'm working out fairly regularly and I feel so much better.  I'd love to try prenatal yoga though, I've heard very good things.

Monique posted this 21 October 2018

I have been doing pregnant yoga,  and it's great!   I love the instructor,  and it really helps with my back pain. 

Kelly posted this 22 October 2018

I walk regularly and do yoga ! Helps with stretching and keeping active.

Ellie posted this 22 October 2018

If exercises is too much maybe try stretching and yoga. It could help with pain, delivery, and working on your breath. 

brit posted this 29 October 2018

I have always been told- continue on the same exercise level you were prior to pregnancy. For example- if you walked everyday pre- pregnancy: keep it up mid- pregnancy. If you were a runner before, keep it up during pregnancy. Obviously- consult your doc. When pregnant, I find walking wakes me up WAY more than taking a nap does. Getting your heart rate pumping is good!! 

Danielle posted this 29 October 2018

I did pregnancy yoga and continued with yoga practice afterwards. Its a great workout but also soothing, I feel very relaxed after each class. 

Ewa posted this 29 October 2018

I worked out through my entire pregnancy. The first trimester I didn't have energy and slept a lot but I felt like working out helped me through the times I was uncomfortable, feeling new different things.

Hannah posted this 29 October 2018

Same! Walking has helped with the pregnancy pains so much and it's good for the mind as well!

I do a lot of walking for like 2 hours daily. I heard it helps for labor pain.

Joy posted this 03 November 2018

I did a mix of walking and Zumba both pregnancies. I liked pilates/yoga but for some reason both didn't feel right while pregnant so I stopped. Zumba is a lot of fun though! 

Daniela posted this 05 November 2018

I'm with the majority on this one- walking. I walk several miles every morning. It is so beneficial. I'm not sure about heavy weight lifting or cardio sessions. But I have heard that whatever exercise routine you've done prior to pregnancy should be ok, just get your doctor's approval first.

Kristine posted this 05 November 2018

Walking, stretching and light hand weights are what my doctor recommended.  I live in a super hilly neighborhood so we'll see how this walking thing goes!! 

Katie posted this 06 November 2018

I've been participating in a pregnancy yoga class and it has been great.  It seems to help work out any kinks in my lower back and is helping me just feel revived!  Walking is the other exercise that I have been participating in on a daily basis (but I have a dog to walk everyday)! 

Emily posted this 07 November 2018

I did yoga while pregnant as well. I also highly recommend finding some kind of exercise that works for you during pregnancy!

Torin posted this 07 November 2018

Did you exercise before pregnancy and if so maybe pick that back up but on a lighter schedule.  I actually participated in a water aerobics class and loved it.  I used a massage therapists that specializes in pregnancy women to help out with my aches during this pregnancy. 

bridget posted this 08 November 2018

Try just some basic walking- it really helps prepare your body for labor! 

Winnie posted this 08 November 2018

Still TTC here but I asked my doctor about it because I'm a runner right now. She said I could jog for as long as I'm comfortable since I'm already a runner. I plan on jogging for as long as possible with some yoga for stretching. I don't want to lose too much of the cardio progress I've made.

Krista posted this 08 November 2018

I mainly walked and did some dancing. I'm not sure if dancing counts as exercise but I def worked up a sweat! 

Amanda posted this 09 November 2018

I walk when I can or try to go along with a workout DVD if I'm feeling brave. I just passed the 22 week mark and am noticing a little more huffing and puffing on my end as I get bigger. My sister wants me to hit up a Zumba class with her but I'm not sure I'm coordinated enough for all that 😂 😂 

Kelly posted this 14 November 2018

Great question Suze!  Walking is a great excersise when you're pregnant. I did a lot of stretching and Pilates. I had to stop at about 7 months because it got to be to much but I'm glad I did exercersie when I could.I benefited from it!

Emily posted this 14 November 2018

With my first pregnancy I literally didn’t do any exercising (with the exception of running a 5k at 12 weeks) at all. I ended up gaining over 50lbs, had pregnancy induced hypertension and was induced a week early. I’ve vowed to do everything I can to prevent that during my next pregnancy. I currently workout 6 days a week, three being cardio and three being strength training. I will probably modify or cut back on the cardio workouts and continue the strength training. But I also know how exhausting it is being pregnant, so we will see what I can stick to!

Charlie posted this 14 November 2018

I've been doing prenatal yoga in the evenings and walking during my lunch break.

I wish I was able to be more active when I was pregnant, I felt horrible all the time. But I was feeling ok I'd try to walk or at least do some yoga and stretching. It really does help

dayna posted this 24 December 2018

They say it depends on what your lifestyle is/ was like before pregnancy too. So if you weren't already lifting weights, might now be the smartest to start while pregnant. I would suggest yoga and also some resistance bands!

Mel posted this 26 December 2018

I did pregnancy yoga! Found some great videos on youtube so didn't cost a thing! And hubby and I tried to get a walk in every night, especially at the end!

Pregnancy Yoga on youtube was always my go-to! There are so many different videos to choose from, you can search for yoga according to your trimester and I loved it! It's very relaxing and easy on your body, but it also helps you get in daily exercise and breathing.

The main thing is to listen to your body.  If you feel tired, its for a reason!  Try some walking, stretching, or yoga when you feel tired.  Don't worry about doing too much high intensity working out. 

Hannah posted this 11 November 2019

Swimming is really good because it works your entire body and no impact so it's easy on you too. 👍

I was honestly too exhausted or sick during my pregnancy so I did not exercise much. I did bounce on my ball and go on walks very often so that helped. Luckily I lost most of my weight gain pretty quickly.

Simple beach body yoga classes help me stay motivated and I try to have my friends help me stay on task

Alex posted this 13 December 2019

I decided to just work on my arms and legs and just do weights and then light walking. Cardio felt not awesome but weights felt great. It got me back into my body. You could also check out Bloom Method! It's online. 

Alex posted this 13 December 2019

Dina - if I may - i think you should try and do a little something. it will really help out later on. For backpain and veins. It doesn't have to be a lot - just a 20 min walk. Places like the YMCA have inside walking tracks if you don't want to be outside. 

I had no workout.  I admit it, I am too lazy for it nor have motivation.   My mind says to do it but my legs don't do anything but want to sleep and lay in bed.

Alex posted this 13 December 2019

That is a great start! If you do it everyday I think you are doing a great job! 

I did not get the chance to. But I walk every morning 15 to 20 min at most.

Alex posted this 13 December 2019

Find an older person in your hood that needs help walking their dog or would like company - that was you stay accountable! 

Emily posted this 17 December 2019

I exercised daily before pregnancy, so my doctor said I was okay to continue. I did a mixture of aerobic classes and piYo. My favorite gym class was spin. I was able to continue morning spin classes past my due date (baby came a week late). I loved it because I could modify for myself. For example, it was too hard to stand later on in pregnancy, so I just sat on the bike the whole class.

Claire posted this 20 December 2019

I started with lots of walking, because I was so sick. Then I went back to running (I was a runner before), but had to stop around 6 months because my joints hurt so bad after! Then I started taking spin classes and could continue those until I delivered!

Whitney posted this 20 December 2019

I think it depends on how active you were before. If you were very active, it's great to continue exercising and modify based on what your doctor says. If you were not active before, walking is a great option to get started with.

Even if all you do is walking that is good! Its probably best to check with your doctor before you start a new routine.

I live for the elliptical! Sometimes I do free weights too, but nothing too crazy. 

Kristy posted this 28 February 2020

After working all day and being exhausted from that, I found it really difficult to motivate for exercise. I agree that even walking was more than I could handle. But I did a lot of walking around at work and tried to go to prenatal yoga on weekends. That's pretty low impact and theres a lot of emphasis on stretching and stuff that really helps the aches, pains, stress, and discomfort.
