I'm 33 wks. and have been exercising pretty regularly (every other day cardio, including light handweights and squats) in the hopes that this will help me have an easier labor. A very fit friend of mine just had her first baby in a manner of hours and with no drugs. I have a hunch it had to do with the fact that she's in great shape. For those who did exercise, did labor seem easier? Recovery? Just trying to pump myself up and know that what I'm doing is helping! Thanks.Answer Question

I do! Although I didn't exercise I was active at work with a lot of walking and I worked till my son was born. He was born on his due date, my water broke like 5 in the morning and my contractions began immediately and I had him by 8:40. My last two I did not work and wasn't as active and I was late and had to be induced with both.
