Be careful with your blood pressure too. I regularly go to the gym, but my OB said to cut it down to about 2/3 of what I used to do. So I walk on the treadmill like I used to (just go a bit slower), do prenatal yoga (which I love, total convert), and walk my dog at the park for a few miles, depending on mood. :)
Being active is good though, just don't overdo it and listen to your body. Drink lots of water, go a little slower, and don't overheat. Otherwise, the baby should be fine.
Typically, you can continue your exercise regime for as long as you are able too during pregnancy and this is actually encouraged by drs (check with your dr first though to make sure there isnt a reason why you cant exercise). As others have mentioned, watch out for overheating and dehydration.
My sister ran on her treadmill and had a prenatal exercise routine DVD that she did as well...
One of my best friends who is a marathon runner, ran every day for 9 months while she was pregnant and she was fine. The baby was healthy and happy. She did about 6 or more miles every day on her treadmill because she was afraid to fall on her belly outside. So exercise is perfectly safe as long as you're not lifting heavy weights
okay I feel a little better. Maybe just walking on the treadmill and some light leg workouts.
