Exercise

I have heard that exercise while ttc helps a great deal and also that slight exercise during pregnancy will help to reduce the chances of stretch marks. Does anybody have any idea if this helped you?

  • Not sure whether it'll help with stretch marks, but it will help in a million other ways as long as you're OK'd by your Dr!

  • I've never hear that but I ran up until I was 7 months pregnant with both my kids and I didn't get a single stretch mark.

  • Well, stretch marks all depend on how big you are, how big you get, and how big baby is...there's too many variables to say that exercise will help reduce them. I worked out up until 6 months with my daughter and have stretch marks GALORE....and I only gained 11 pounds while pregnant with her....now my son, I didn't exercise at all, only gained 12 pounds with HIM and got no "new" stretch marks.
