Default Hello, new here..

I am ttc #1, and just had mc on Aug 1...I run 3 miles 4 days a week, try to stay healthy- is it OK to be running when I am possibly pg (during tww) or should I limit my activity? I don't want to have another mc but I know that staying healthy will help my chances while ttc. Any advice would be appreciated

Im not sure if you should stop running or not but you should ask your doctor and see what he/she thinks about it!

I'm an avid exerciser, and I asked my doctor this very question after my m/c last summer. He told me that anything I am accustomed to doing is fine in early pregnancy, particularly before you even know you're pregnant. Once you start to feel some of the effects of pregnancy (tiredness, getting overheated more quickly, etc.), you should start ramping down your intensity. But anything that feels good to you is ok, as long as you did it before. The most current studies do not require that you keep your heart rate under 140, as the recommendations provided in the early 1980s stated.

The few things my doctor made me give up included racquetball and hockey. I gave up road biking on my own initiative, even though he said it would be ok for the first 4-5 months.

I followed his advice with this pregnancy (I'm now almost 35 weeks), and I've had far fewer problems with discomfort than my friends who do not exercise as actively. In fact, I'm only now starting to see some swelling in my feet. I've felt energetic and well for the bulk of the pregnancy. So I would say keep doing what feels good, as long as you're experienced.

Good luck to you both. Hope you are pg again very soon!

Thanks for the advice! I think that it makes sense to listen to your body and do what feels good. I never push it if I feel tired, I just slow it down a bit that day. I think when you have a mc it is natural to question things you did, but I think if it's going to happen there's probably not much you can do to prevent it. We will just keep trying!
