Exercising and trying to conceive...
rockerchik87 posted:
Hi I'm new here and had a quick question that's been bothering me. I started exercising about 2mths ago n just this mth my bf and i are ttc. I was worried if the exercises i'm doing will be a prob with the fertilization and implantion process. The exercises I do are sit-ups, planks, leg lifts, push ups, and i use an elliptical. Can any of these affect the process or is it ok. I read in one of the articles that leg lifts and sit-ups are bad when pregnant so i'm guessing they might be bad when ttc? This will be my first pregnancy so I'm just really nervous and scared. I was diagnosed with PCOS also so I guess that makes me a bit more nervous also.

Hi there! From a medical standpoint all I've heard is to not increase the intensity of your workouts when you're trying. My speculation is because the little swimmers only need roughly half a day to get where they're going, you would only need to take it easy during that time. But I could be wrong, maybe someone else will have some more info to add.

Good luck to you!

I was watching a reality tv show and a woman who was in her late thirties wanted to ttc and her doctor told her to start was more so cardio and not the rough stuff.

This would be a great time to see your ob-gyn and ask some questions so that you can have that peace of mind.

I hope you get a quick BFP!
