before i got pregnant i was running an average of 10-12 miles a week, along with weights and other cardio. my ob/gyn said that there was nothing wrong with working out as long as I knew when I was tired and to follow what my body told me.  I ran a little less because i found it a lot harder to breathe properly for running.  by the time i was 5 months pregnant, i pretty much stayed on the elliptical and stairmaster.  I did a lot of stretching and some upper body weights (just to keep toned hehe).  By 8 months, I kept it down to just walking, but we made sure to walk for at least half an hour.  We just always made sure to stay well hydrated.

I walked until my sciatica started acting up
