Exercise and Pregnancy
I was so happy and surprised to see a 6 1/2 month pregnant lady at the YMCA today. I think it is awesome that she was working out. Don't get me wrong, she wasn't busting a sweat, nor was she pumping iron and grunting; however she was there. Walking on the treadmill at a nice leisurely pace. Then she grabbed, what looked to be, 5 lbs weights and did some arm exercise. How cute!!!
I hope that when I am preggo I can still maintain some level of exercise. It has great benefits for the baby and me! Here is to all the women out there that were able to live a healthy lifestyle while being pregnant. I hope my pregnancy is a great one, so I too can be an active carrier to this precious baby that our lord will bless me to carry.
