I’m away for a work meeting, so I can’t take my normal yoga or pilates classes. I’m feeling all kinds of bloated and gross at 9DPO, and have set my alarm to just run the treadmill in the am. Out of curiosity, I researched it a little, and I get conflicting reports on whether or not elevating the heart rate, as you do when you run, is healthy during the 2WW.
What do you think? Did your doctor advise you on the topic at all? Do you maintain your normal workouts during the 2WW?

I’ve heard that if you are already active, that it isn’t as bad as starting a completely new workout routine.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: But is it still “bad?” I guess I’m so paranoid at this point, that I’ll just tough out the fat and gross a few more days if it’s even a little bad!

I am paranoid about it too. This month I am taking pretty easy. Walks and yard for the most part. I don’t think it is bad, but I feel supersticious about running and jumping around (I know this is not rational at all).

I lived my life as normally as I could during every TWW (including even drinking a few glasses of wine…and this past TWW I ate SUSHI…gasp….on 10DPO…and it turns out I was pregnant!)
Work at as you normally would. I am 6 wks pregnant and my doctor told me that I could continue my workouts while pregnant – you don’t want to up your workouts, but there is nothing wrong with continuing to work out normally. The only restrictions are no spinning, no hot yoga, and no downhill skiing. My OB practice has done away with keeping your heart rate at a specific level. Instead, they say to listen to your body while working out. I get a little more winded working out now and definitely take it easier, but I’m still jogging and working out.

@winniewolf: No spinning? Wahhhh!
