  • Yes and I hope that's why I lasted 32 hours during labor. I would have probably died long before then if I hadn't worked out.

  • No I didn't work out during my last pregnancy. It was considered a high risk pregnancy and I didn't do anything unless I absolutely had to.

  • I am 18 weeks and have been working out daily until this past week when I became dehydrated and was having a lot of Braxton Hicks. I did keep walking, but stopped my normal routine.

    I worked out with my first and had a pretty quick and uneventful labor. I also lost all my weight (except for 8 pounds) by my 6 week checkup. It's definitely worth it.
