Workout while pregnant???

Hello ladies have no fear! It does a body good to workout when your pregnant. I just found out that I am pregnant with my second child!! I am very excited and wasn’t sure about continuing my workout. I have a gym membership that only does a circuit training workout with cardio in between. I’ve been going for about 6mo now and I love going! Plus I feel like being in my 30s it gets harder to loose the weight, so I want to continue going for my own good and health.


My trainers are very helpful and modify my workouts for me and I still leave feeling like I got a great workout in. I’m sore the next day and it’s a double whammy because of being pregnant and workout soreness…awesome!! It’s a great feeling though.

Working out while pregnant has many perks. It’s easier on labor and helps your body to bounce back quicker. I wish I had exercised in some sort of fashion with my first born but I have to be honest I didn’t do anything other than walking a block or two a handful of times during the 9months.

With this second pregnancy I feel a difference already because I’ve been working out before getting pregnant and have continued working out. I am not as tired as I was during my first to where all I wanted to do was sleep. The big difference now is I have more energy. I feel more confident!


Since I’ve spoken with my doctor and trainers about my workout regimen they have made me feel extra confident. So don’t be afraid that your going to hurt your baby just be cautious and do what you can. Your body will tell you otherwise and if so stop and take breaks and a breather. No one is judging you! You do what you can and feel great about yourself. Remember being pregnant isn’t the easiest thing and we gain x amount of weight during the pregnancy that we don’t want but we don’t have a choice. So let’s be some strong women and make the best of it! Be pregnant, be healthy, love yourself and love your life!
