  • When I was preggo my doctor told me that working out was safe as long as I wasn't stressing my body more then it was used to. He also advised me not to lift weights as that could be a huge strain on my body one that could impact the baby. He advised that light cardio or medium cardio (depending on what i was used to) was safe as well as pool workouts because that was good for me and soothing for the baby.

  • I would say the gym is a very good idea to your doctor about what you should/shouldn't do working out.
