    Posted this on first tri but wanted to get some feedback from you ladies too:

    I started crossfitting almost three months ago and I'm hooked. I lost 16 lbs so far and feel great. Now that I'm pregnant I'm getting a lot of slack from hubby and sister (she also crossfits). They think I need to stop

    Doctor gave thumbs up as long as my body was already used to that level of intensity. My coach is also aware of the pregnancy and has agreed work with me.

    Anyone else crossfitting while pregnant? I just want to share some experiences and tips.

    I do not crossfit but if the doctor is saying it is ok I would say you should be fine. I was working out to P90x before I became pregnant and my doctor told me I could continue to do it as long I feel good, so I do.
    Just make sure you listen to your body...if you get tired make sure you take a break. Also I would say maybe just try to eat a little more so that you are still gaining a little for the baby.
    Remember at some point during your pregnancy you may have to stop doing it and maybe go to speed walking or something of that matter. Just listen to your body, it will tell you if it is too much. Good luck!!

    Oh, to all you ladies who can still workout vigorously, I wish I could. But, because I am considered high risk, my doctor told me no. I was diagnosed with placenta previa and until it corrects itself, i cannot do anything vigorous. Hopefully, it will clear up soon. I was a runner before I got pregnant but I had to stop because ir made my sciatica worse and also because of the placenta previa. But, I walk.

    Thank you both for responding. I'm really trying to listen to my body. I think I need to focus on maintaining fitness not pushing myself too hard.

    I'm ok with stopping if needed but for now I feel great working out.
