  • no i would not. You do not know yet how strong your uterus is. A kick could start a bleed.

  • I would think that if you were already physically active then it would be ok. I always heard that doctors WANT you to exercise. So if you're a runner, keep running, a swimmer, keep swimming. Etc ETc.

  • a friend of mine that is a runner, was told by their dr that she could keep running thru her preg until it was too uncomfortable aka the belly was too big! but idk what zumba stuff is, so i would call the dr first just to make sure!

  • that is not dumb, Nothing is ever dumb. well even though I dont know exactly what zumba is...if its a type of exercise, you can do it if you are already on some sort of exercise or have been keeping in shape. if you are just going to start out, It should be ok if its nothing too crazy, remember to start off slow with whatever type of activity you choose to do.
