They generally do not like you to start an exercise plan if you haven't already been doing it, so definitely run it by your doctor.

I asked about swimming my doctor heavily encouraged it. I never got around to it and the next week we were on modified bed rest so my plan was out the window... but I wish I could have! :)

Everyone's pregnancies are so different, I would ask your doctor to see what they feel would be recommended for you.

18 weeks too nervous to excercise

Postby mymiracles2 » Wed Sep 18, 639563 6:26 am

Hi there! Haven't checked in for awhile. I am 18 weeks and still feeling nausea-normal sickness though! I am starting to get a bit nervous though, questioning every move. I have bad veins in right leg and wAnt to workout a bit to feel more energized. I have heard that it isn't good to excercise? Any thoughts?
