Default TWW and exercise

Hi Ladies!
I recently joined Curves and I was wondering if there was any harm doing the hydraulic machines during the TWW (or pregnancy if that ever happens). There are 2 machines that work the stomach area that I am concerned about. I need to get some of this weight off me, but I don't want to jeopardize anything.
Thanks!
Cathy

Cathy whilst I cant answer you specific question, I can pass on what my RE told me. She said exercise is fine as long as you do not overheat and not to do any heavy weights. She believes exercise can be very beneficial as it increases your heart rate which in turn increases blood supply to the uterus. I would suggest checking with your RE or clinic and get their opinion.

I've always heard it's good to exercise, but not so good to start a new rigorous routine up at the start of a pregnancy. Also, I've read that you should avoid stomach excercises like sit ups but I don't know if that's right off or further into a pregnancy.

Not much help I know!

With IVF, they don't want you lifting anything over 10 to 15 lbs. during the 2ww. They also don't want you to vacuum (bending). This is implantation time so I would risk any type of exercise that is going to strain your stomach area. Also, I'd extend that throughout the first trimester.

I work out at curves also. I love it. I have so much more energy and I'm actually starting to get muscle. Anyways my RE said it is great she is a member there also. She said since most of it is resistance exercise that I would know what to take it easy on while I am working out. She won't let me do the cardio though because she doesn't want my BMI under 10 and it is only at 11.3. I just recomend talking to your Re about it. Have fun doing it.
