DH and I are going to start TTC this month, and we’re very excited! I still want to spend some time in the gym. While we are TTC, are there any certain parameters I should follow? Will working out too hard decrease our chances or have the potential to cause a miscarriage? Any input/advice would help. Thanks!

If your periods are regular, just keep up what you’re doing. Just be very careful about increasing your exercise. I upped the intensity of my workouts a few months before TTC, and it affected my cycle.

I have been working out while TTC and it hasnt changed my cycles any. I am also not pregnant (8 cycles later), but my doctor didnt say anything about going to the gym so Ive continued to do it.

@keepsmiling19: If your body is already the workout routine, you should be fine. Working out will actually help you keep your mind busy hee hee :))))))))))))

Keep working out, it’s very important because when you get your BFP you want to continue to be active. If you aren’t very active before conceiving you have to be careful what type of exercise you do after. Unfortunately I was in a car accident Feb. 1 and haven’t been active at all so now that I got my BFP I am trying to determine what’s best to do to try to be active again.

I’m still working out whle TTC but will discuss what to do, when I finally to get a BFP, with my doctor. I read somewhere that heart rates are not supposed to get too elevated, and it freaked me out a little because my heart rate gets up there, especially at Spin class! (I have a wonderful heart rate monitor that my hubby got me for my birthday, so I do know how high it goes.)

I used to be a collegiate athlete and the only time it ever effected my cycle was when we got a crazy new coach who ran us all into the ground (I was running close to 100 miles a week…) I don’t think you will be exercising so much you will change stuff around. If it does it will probabaly one be by day. I wouldn’t worry. 🙂
