Yoga while TTC and when pregnant
Mon, 03-22-2010 - 10:27pm

Hello - I've heard that yoga is great to reduce stress and for exercise in general. So I've been going once or twice a week to a yoga class. I'm definitely beginner and not able to do all the moves just so, but tonight during class I wondered if it was safe to be doing yoga while TTC and when you might just be pregnant.
I'm in the 2ww now and of course am paranoid about anything happening to another pregnancy so I don't want to do anything that could harm it (though I'm likely not pregnant!).
Can anyone weigh in on what you know about yoga and if there are some moves you shouldn't do if you're pregnant?
Thank you!

Missing our sweet baby Grace Ruth. She was with us for
27 weeks and was due 12.24.09. She could not grow properly due to a placenta
deficiency and though we were closely monitored, there was nothing we could do
to save her. Her heart stopped beating at 1:35 p.m. on Thursday, 09.24.09 and
she was born still at 3:04 a.m. on Sunday, 09.27.09. We buried her on
Saturday, 10.03.09.



Hopeful about IVF round 1 - Nov/Dec 2010 / Forever missing our baby Grace - lost at 27 weeks, Sept. 27, 2009 / First loss shattered our perfect world at 7w3d, Nov. 2008
