    Sorry it's me again being a bit internet happy..

    What exercise (if any) are you all getting up to?

    Last year I lost a few stone and got to a healthy weight. I was at the gym loads and at classes even though i don't like exercise that much..

    Today I feel awake and alert for the first time in weeks...

    Is it a good idea to go on a little bike ride?

    I know you shouldn't be too strenuous this early on (9+6) but I really don't want to get unnecessarily fat or unfit after all that effort. i now eat not as healthily as i was doing (sneaking more carbs because things make me sick that i had before)
    Thanks

    i cant imagine a little bike ride wud hurt hun, just defo dont overdo it hun, just keep it gentle and take lots of water.

    I cant do too much exercise as i have fibromyalgia and can mainly just do swimming and walking. I have been so poorly with sickness that i havent been able to do this for a long time but am hoping to go for a swim either this eve or tomoz cant wait to get back into the water.

    Thanks Michelle :)

    I am reading a lot of very positive things about swimming whilst pregnant. I may have to invest in a swimming costume and do that. Might try a little bike ride. if all goes wrong I'll put the bike back and have a little walk. got some water chilling in the fridge


    How far a long are you? This is the first day I have even been able to contemplate exercise after getting pregnant. Have been like you, just totally exhausted! :) xx

    My ticker is slightly out but im just over 11wks. Ive been exhausted and ill since about 7/8wks so im just starting to get back to normal and feel a bit human again. I love swimming have just got a maternity costume so fx i can get back in the water soon.

    Hope you get to go out and enjoy the sun.

    yeah i am seriously considering swimming now. so you got a special maternity costume? i hadnt even considered it you know! i was just gona buy a normal one. did you get it online or do most shops tend to sell them? probably a good idea as my stomach is mega bloated. it's probably not a "bump", i think everything in there has just expanded from what i read. sort of like a blowfish lol. awful. people will just think im fatter atm!

    I got mine off ebay hun, brand new from next that the lady didnt end up using in her pregnancy even got the £26 price tag on and i got it for £7!!!

    I got the costume because the one i have got is like a holdin your tummy one and i know in a few wks it wont fit lol. I wanted one that cud expand out with me and still fit after the birth for a bit. Was a bargain. Hopin to go swimming again this arvo.
