100 lb. Club - Resetting goals - for now.
02-21-2008, 06:52 PM
So, went to the doctor today & confirmed it. I'm pregnant! We've been trying for 6 years so this is fantastic.
...but, it means I need to reset my goals for the time being. So with approval from my doctor these are my new goals for the next 9 months:
-continue my healthy eating habits with a few adaptations (less tuna, more milk)
-continue my exercising (although the jury is still out on if/how much of my weight lifting I need to cut back on)
-gain no more than 10lbs over the course of the pregnancy (because of the extra weight I still have this is perfectly acceptable)

What wonderful news!! Congratulations!!
There are a bunch of pregnant women at my gym, and several still weight lift. I saw one woman on the elliptical the day before she delivered, so if you're healthy enough, you certainly can incorporate exercise into a pregnancy.
Please don't disappear so that we know how you're doing, okay?

Congrads!! I have a couple books bout Pregnancy fitness. They say that what you did before you can continue to do during the first trimester. In the second and third trimester avoid straight leg lifts elevate your upper boddy on the bench (my instructor would put a few risers on end of the step and none on the other). She kept teaching our class till she was 38 weeks along! BUT of course your doctor will know whats best for you! :D

CONGRATS!!! That's fantastic news! What you can and cannot do will depend on so many things as the pg progesses. As far as the weight gain, don't worry, I was obese when I got pg both times - started at 220 - and gained 13 and 15 pounds. Of course, I was being careful. Best of luck for a HH9M!!

What wonderful news! Congratulations! Don't worry about the weight gain. I was overweight when I got pregnant and kept my weight gain to 15 lbs - and 11 lbs of that ended up being Baby! Just keep eating healthy. (Oh and breastfeeding is a HUGE calorie burner!)
Very happy for you and your DH!

This is such happy news!! :) I am so, so thrilled for you. I wish you well in this pregnancy!

What great news!
What helped me when I was pregnant was to continue to post here - it didn't let me eat like it was a free for all!
All the best..

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I definitely intend to keep working out throughout - but I am going to double check with motherrisk for the weightlifting to appease my mother & dh. This is our first - hopefully first of several!
