Also with Antiphospholipid Syndrome, you have to exercise like heaps anyway…
- Ballet – Monday & Wednesday. I stopped going to Friday class because I was so tired.
- Yoga – Did a little yoga at home, until I joined a prenatal friendly yoga class on Tueday’s
- Walking – A wise person told me a very long time ago that if you walk every day of your pregnancy, you will never notice how much the belly weights. You will be accustomed to walking with the weight of it each day and your body will grow stronger to hold it. If you stop for just a few days, when you head out to walk, the belly will feel difficult and heavy from the changes. So with that in mind, I am walking.
- Ballet – Just Monday nights for a little while.
- Yoga – Once a week for an hour and a half.
- Walking – Almost every day, unless it was raining.
- Ballet – twice a week, beginner classes. Monday and Wednesday.
- Yoga – Once over the weekend. there are a couple of classes I can go to that are suitable, so I just fit them in around seeing friends. I went to a pregnancy yoga class but found it really boring. All they talked about were babies and everyone’s feelings. Yawn.
- Walking – Walking around Sydney a lot. Walking to friends houses and to go shopping.
If you want to try it out – I suggest the GRACEFUL & FIT PREGNANCY BUNDLE from Mary Helen Bowers, if you can’t get to a Ballet class, and are interested in trying it. I have her other DVD’d to do at home, during ballet breaks. But I continued going to Ballet classes where my teachers could guide me along. So I didn’t end up buying the Pregnancy DVD’s in the end.
What was your exercise routine like during your pregnancy? Did you have people telling you, you couldn’t do this and had to stop doing that?
