Primal Pregnancy Exercise
Hi everyone, I am 5.5 weeks pregnant and have been primal for nearly 2 years. Having suffered 2 miscarriages in the past, I am determined to carry this pregnancy to term, and I believe that eating primal with a Weston A Price approach has helped me fall pregnant this time.
Before falling pregnant, I was doing a bootcamp style exercise class twice a week - comprising of high intensity interval training (burpees, squats, sprints etc), as well as going on a long bike ride on the weekend. I also walk my dog 4 times a week.
Since falling pregnant I have stopped the classes as I don't want to put my body through any unnecessary stress, but would like to exercise throughout this pregnancy to stay fit and prepare my body for birth.
Does anyone have any recommendations for exercise in the first trimester?
Many thanks in advance!
pregnant and injured from car accident
[FONT=Arial Black][/FONT]Hello, I joined this site to see if I could possibly get some help and advice. I am 28 years old and pregnant (18 wks) with my first child. Pre pregnancy i was and avid runner and in good shape. When i found out i was pregnant I slowed down on the running but kept up on the cardio and strength training by using pregnancy dvd's i had purchased. About a month and a half ago I was in a head on car wreck. I was driving and an SUV came barreling around a turn and the driver lost control of his vehicle and hit me head on. My baby is fine and healthy (thank the lord) but i suffered severe knee injuries among others. I have every ligament in both knees torn and have a tibial plateau fractures which required surgery leaving me with metal plates and screws in my knees. I am unable and have been unable to walk since the accident. I have been doing my best to atleast control my weight through diet but i am worried all of the inactivity will lead to a very difficult delivery. So basically if anyone has any pointers for exercise with limited or no mobility it would be much appreciated. Thank You:cool:;)
