I pretty religiously work out four or five times a week... I do a lot of high impact group fitness classes. Curious if any of you are ladies who love to work out? When I'm pregnant, I get energized working out and feel awesome that I'm doing it for myself and my little bean! This morning was my first Body Attack class since my positive test. I could definately noticed something was different. Felt slightly off and every time I jumped bounced or kicked... my boobs reminded me I was pregnant! Ha!

My husband is the Third! I said I wasn't raising a monarchy, and he let me change the middle name. :)

Kickboxers! You guys make me so happy. My last pregnancy was all about go go go, run run run, don't gain don't gain. I was terrified of the weight gain, bc I gained over 90 lbs my first two pregnancies. So with my last, Billy, and all that running, I only gained 35.

I just have this huge lurking feeling that I shouldn't do that this time. I'm walking regularly, but I'm already enormous, particularly since I didn't lose 25 of the 35 lbs from the last one (I don't lose when BFing, and Billy stopped last week). So. Yeah. Feeling glum and wishing I could be as kickass as all of you, but I'll just have to buck up and enjoy every plumpin' minute of this one, our final fourth.

In fact, I went to class tonight after having taken a few days off - had a cold and was wiped out.

I think your instinct has to guide you - it is one of the strongest tools we mamas have.

I will be working out through this pregnancy. I have several dvds. We don't have a gym membership. I really like walk at home with Leslie.
