Staying active is an important part of my life, even while pregnant. With my previous two pregnancies I neither ran nor biked, two activities I've been enjoying a lot recently. Recently, I found out I was pregnant when I was 8 weeks along. While I've cut back on my running, partly due to the body readjusting (e.g., widening hips, expanding waistline, weight gain, etc.) making a wee bit uncomfortable but also partly due to my worry that too much running may harm the health of the growing babe. I must say, I've been feeling good lately running. Since this is my third pregnancy, I feel keenly aware of any issues I would be experiencing and would stop at any time if I knew it was a risk to my pregnancy. Aside from feeling it a bit more in my hips, I'm hoping that
running jogging will help me stay more fit, hopefully prevent the 50 lb weight gain during the last pregnancy and help me to bounce back quickly post-partum. We've heard about biking throughout pregnancy, but what about running? How long did you run into your pregnancy? What limitations did you set on distance and time?
