i am too tired to exercise

i can't even get off the couch most days, i'm only 29 weeks pregnant but i'm finding it impossible to do any kind of exercises

even leg extensions while laying down, i can only do like 7 on each side before my legs cramp up.

i dont think this is normal, do you think it will go away after birth? i'm getting stretch marks on my boobs, legs and butt from getting so flabbalicous

  • maybe its just because i've been sick for five days, i had a TON of energy three weeks ago- i almost started jogging because i felt so good

  • well the will not go away..they will fade but my dd is 2 years old and mine have pretty much faded,they arent dark or anything and i have to be in like a bright light to even see them( yay) lol but the energy should come back after birth(not at firat since you'll be sleep deprived) lol but i remember when i was as pregnany as you are now i had TONS of energy. maybe try adding green tea to your menu. or discuss it with your doc or midwife.

  • stretch marks are normal....everyone gets them when pregnant. Even feeling great you wouldn't want to jog, thats a little too high impact when you haven't done it before and you are won't feel very comfy either with uterus and baby jiggling too much from the motions, you could actually do damage. But look at some of the maternity workout videos out there. Lindsey Brin just came out with a new dvd set with workouts for all 3 trimesters, my local library had them so i've just taken them out...
