Hey hon, I worked out every day until my induction (which was unplanned of course as I would rather have slept!!!).

My labour was almost 4 days long and I pushed for hours, my son was injured from his shoulder dystocia but you know what... the doctors have since said that if it wasn`t for me being healthy & very active throughout my pregnancy, there`s a very real chance he could have died, as few women would have the endurance to push like that. It was too late for a c-section.

So please, no matter what anyone says, do it for you and for your baby. Exercise is SO important, not just to help with a regular natural birth, but especially if things become complicated out of your control. Honestly it saved my baby`s life.

Good luck and keep moving!!!!
