I'm just early on (mid first trimester) and can barely get the energy to get to work everyday!! Walking from Car to office often makes me nauseous. I cant imagine doing a class.

It is so variable. My first pregnancy I needed to nap but was still cheerfully going to gym for cardio and weights. With the second, I had days where the five block walk home almost destroyed me. I want nauseous per se but food was just icky.

Thank you for making me feel better Deetee!! I'm just waiting to get through first trimester. I hear its better in the second lol

Even I have bad days and good days. :-)  Just listen to your body, do what's right for you and ignore the busibodies!

Absolutely! I've now got just under two weeks to go (allegedly!) and have tried to keep reasonably active, even though I'm definitely not as fit as you, OP. I know when I've done too much, and just take it easier next day as far as possible.

All the very best to you!

Just chiming in here - my boss just had a baby in May and she worked out up until she gave birth. I'm convinced that being that fit helped her with labor in a lot of ways. I worked out under doc supervision during my pregnancy as well, and I also think it prepared me in a lot of ways for labor (however, I ended up having a c-section, but I also think being fit helped me recuperate faster).

And everyone will have something to tell you about pregnancy and what you should or should not be doing ..... just do what is best for YOU and what your doc is OK with - and ignore everyone else.

At the beginning of my pregnancy, I had my ex-boss' wife go OFF on me for about 20 minutes about how awful I was for eating tuna fish. I ate a tuna fish sandwich and mentioned it in passing and she started screaming, "TUNA FISH????????!!!!!! YOU HAD TUNA FISH!!!!!!! Your baby is going to have MERCURY POISONING! YOU CAN'T EAT TUNA FISH!!!!!"

Ah.... good times. Congrats on the little one  :)

Oh goodness don't even get me started on people trying to monitor what I eat. Apparently eating preservative and sugar laden cookies and McDonald's Value meals is a-OK but even cooked sushi is the devil and I am going to kill the baby with cross contamination from parasites by just walking into a sushi place or something. Le sigh.
