A little thanks to my sisties for giving me the old "Chin up, gal" in the last post--Siblings are great to have around even when they are smaller than you...maybe...ESPECIALLY when they are smaller than you. They can look at the world through clear lenses, whereas I must squint through my blubber goggles (JOKE).
Here is my dilemma: I am AFRAID to EXERCISE. When my heart rate accelerates and my skin drips with sweat I feel like I am hurting my tiny little baby. I have wanted this little miracle for a LONG time, and I want to do everything to make sure I carry to term. I know I know, NOT exercising could hurt the baby MORE, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, all those great things. SO, where do I go to find a SENSIBle workout routine for my pregnancy? I know ladies who would run MILES until they were about 5 months along--more power to em', but I simply cannot do that. Part of me is making an excuse for myself; we know how much I love a good excuse not to exercise. But MOST of me really is concerned and wants to find something that is effective and safe---any answers?
