I’d like to know if any of you fit Momma’s have conceived while training hard? Or what concessions did you make to get pregnant, if any?
My husband and I have been trying for #1 for a while now. 2 years (I’m 28, he’s 29). We have had one false start, miscarrying last December.
When we began our journey and I kicked my BCP’s to the curb I got a lil surprise. At the time I was training for my yoga certification and sustaining on a very meager vegan diet. I didn’t get my period for almost 6 months. I was elated to get it back, then we got pregnant about 6 months later. I had a D&C at almost 3 months for a missed miscarriage. It sucked.
Fast forward to now. I train pretty hard and pride myself on being healthy. I average 3 strength sessions (maxing out) and about 20 hours on the bike. Although I’m wondering if I am standing in my own way with our pregnancy adventure.
Did you conceive while carrying a “heavy” fitness load or did you consciously lighten up on your training and intensity? I get very grumpy when I go cold turkey off working out, but I will do anything to take this step.
