Yup -- it's true. If we don't take the vitamins, baby will still draw what baby needs from our bodies. I didn't get GD or have any complications (and honestly had a relatively easy delivery; relative to the stories I've heard) -- most of my cravings came in the form of ice cream or pasta, I looked at it as 'more calcium, please!' haha.

Regarding the research -- this book "Expecting Better" (which I found out about in a comment on Reddit actually) -- explained all the current research and lets you make decisions for yourself. I didn't gain "too little" or "too much" -- right in the range of "appropriate" -- but I did worry initially when I was gaining very little weight, because though I wanted to stay fit, I also wanted what's best for the baby. I think baby did just fine with what I did (and the weight fell right off postpartum -- I'm already 20 lbs down). So, pros and cons on both sides, up to us to decide what works for our own lifestyles and choices :)

Whatever choice you make is the right one. Congrats and wishes for a good delivery!

Just want to second u/jaynkier's advice here, which is spot on! Two prenatal workouts that I really like (that are intermediate level and have weight/dumbbell options) are: Leah Sarago's fit and sleek ( and Suzanne Bowen's BarreAmped sleek and toned (—this one is a bit light on core work, so I supp. with exercises like planks and side planks. Hope this helps and good luck!!

Take it easy. I could barely run my first trimester. I’m 13+1 today and ran 2 miles for the first time in a while last week. I was still tired. This weekend I finally feel like I have some energy again and hiked 9 miles yesterday and 7 today. The first 11 weeks or so I took a lot of walks.

I was lucky and didn’t have much nausea, but when I did, I usually had to eat or I’d pop a preggie pop

Good luck and be nice to yourself!

The book Real Food for Pregnancy: The Science and Wisdom of Optimal Prenatal Nutrition

This really explains all the nutrients that are so important for your growing babe and why. It was easier for me to eat healthy after reading how important real foods nutrients were.

I read Exercising Through Your Pregnancy finally and have been feeling really inspired to keep up my workouts!

My runs are starting to feel better again! I am at 24 weeks now. It was great until about 20 weeks, then I had a phase where the round ligament pain made me want to cry during runs. Now I'm back to running 3 miles without pain, and I ran 3 times this week.

I also played tennis twice, went to barre once, and prenatal yoga once.

My goal next week is to run 3 times (3 miles), play tennis 3 times, and hit prenatal yoga twice.

I've got several pairs of loose fitting Champion shorts. These ones -> I have both the medium and the large and I think the large would work under my belly through the rest of the pregnancy. But they do bunch up a bit while I run and I think for longer runs, my thighs would chafe a bit.

I think I'll try the 7" tight shorts I mentioned in my other reply and the Champion shorts I already have and see if either of those are comfortable for longer distances. And if not, I'll try the Tracker shorts.

I highly recommend reading Expecting Better, as the author looks at the actual scientific evidence behind most common pregnancy do's and don'ts.

The summary of her section on coffee says:

> In moderation, coffee is fine.

> All evidence supports having up to 2 cups daily.

> Much of the evidence supports having 3 to 4 cups.

> Evidence on more than 4 cups a day is mixed; some links are seen with miscarriage, but it is possible that they are all due to the effects of nausea.

Personally, I have a large travel mug of strong black coffee every morning.

I really like this stuff:

Is got zero additives and is just whey isolate. The isolate part is just how the protein is taken from the milk, and actually helps break down the lactose. Which I like Cuz my stomach gets upset when I have too much!

The other reason I like this one is its unflavored (basically tastes like watered down milk, no fake vanilla flavor). This means I can add it to chocolate milk, strawberry milk, yogurt oatmeal or even a blended coffee drink. :)

Don't be too intimidated by the size. A serving you add to a drink is a rather large scoop. I was surprised how fast I went through it.

Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe can’t be beat. My husband and I did it together a few years ago. You build muscle super fast. It was so much fun keeping a notebook together. Rippetoe breaks down every lift so thoroughly, there’s no gimmicky shortcuts, and he takes a sort of whole body approach that’s way better than “targeting” certain muscles. He’s lasted the test of time when so many other coaches and programs have had their trendy moment and fallen into obscurity.

We got this Schwinn jogger on prime day for $150. It has all the features of the more expensive joggers. There's no way I could justify $300+ for a stroller! However, I really wanted the fixed wheel style for safety, as well as the one-handed brake mechanism. So the Schwinn was perfect. I think there's also a double version.

u/prynncamm · 3 pointsr/fitpregnancy

Absolutely! Hopefully this link works 😬

I tried to find one that wasn’t bulky or hot and this one had good reviews.

JILL&JOEY Maternity Belt, Breathable Belly Band, Pregnancy Back Support, One Size, Beige

While I don't follow this advice, since I'm pretty sure it's been out of date for almost 20 years, I did notice something interesting. My running has naturally slowed since I've gotten pregnant. A few times, in the middle of a run, I've stopped to take my pulse, just out of curiosity. Every time, it's between 140 and 150. It's almost as though my body is slowing to a pace where my heart only needs to hit that particular rate. So maybe there's something to the idea that your heartrate shouldn't exceed 140 in pregnancy, but at least for me it seems as though my body is preventing it without my input.

If you want some evidence, particularly for cardio, read James Clapp's Exercising Through Your Pregnancy

Definitely PT. I also found this book useful for the theory of doing more than just simple PT exercises!

u/runrunrun100 · 1 pointr/fitpregnancy

Seconding this -- My sister got me this book and I love it. It has a month to month guide and specific exercises.

u/greysweaters · 1 pointr/fitpregnancy

Will do!
I did see a positive review for this one and it’s affordable so I was thinking of trying this one out. Will report back if I do!

u/mepinkiepie · 7 pointsr/fitpregnancy

Definitely lots of walking helps! I was told no crunches/sit ups for a few months after to allow for the incision to heal. I was able to go back to mostly normal (stuff like running and pushups/situps) by about 4 months postpartum. Make sure you drink lots of water especially if you’re on any pain medication, and hold a pillow to your incision if it still hurts to laugh/cough/sneeze.

I’m three weeks out from my second c section (scheduled this time) and I bought an abdominal binder to wear after. I found last time it really helped with swelling and made me feel less like my insides were going to fall out.

Glamorise Women's Double Layer Custom Control Sport Bra , Black/Grey , 38G

These are the ones I can still use them, I went from a G to a H/I this pregnancy. Very supportive for HIIT workouts.

I didn’t struggle with this myself, but one of the runners whose blog I follow recently posted about her experience with overcoming hypothalamic amenorrhea. I think her insight might be helpful, and she has since written a book on the topic.

u/mmmmkay2 · 3 pointsr/fitpregnancy

I also got one, based off recommendations from this sub. 35 weeks and it helps so much!

GABRIALLA Elastic Maternity Belt,...

u/blobbytables · 2 pointsr/fitpregnancy

I got one of these things and it really feels like it keeps baby from banging around in there:


19w now, planning to run a 5k at 22w. We'll see how it goes...

u/llammacheese · 3 pointsr/fitpregnancy

What kind of routine are you looking for? There are lots of pregnancy workouts on YouTube that you can look up- or DVD's off Amazon (I went with this one, based off reviews).

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do much, because this pregnancy has kicked me in the butt- so I'm mostly walking right now for my workouts.
