Sickness after running

(10 Posts)

Was wondering if anybody else has experienced sickNess after running or has as explanation as to why it happens.
I'm a regular runner and this morning went for a slow and short jog with the dog. Nothing out of my comfort zone. As a got near my house I started to feel ill and stopped. I got home and had diarrhea and was sick twice. I havent suffered from morning sickness at all and don't think it's a bug. I just about managed to shower sitting down then crawled in to bed. I've rested for about an hour now and feel OK again. Is this just my body's way of telling me to slow down? Im only 8 weeks and it's my second. With my first I kept running till 16 weeks, after that it just got uncomfortable and I stopped.
I would appreciate any input, similar experience and information. Thanks you

Wow you are brave, I can barely lift myself off the sofa as I feel so sick. My midwife said to only do gentle exercise, nothing that gets ur heart rate too fast. Just walking upstairs is doing that lol grin

I ran until 7 weeks, just had a 5 week break (was feeling rough and got cough cold thing). Did my first run this morning at almost 12 weeks.

It was a rather pathetic attempt and I didn't push myself at all but in the shower afterwards I felt really faint and shaky. I wasn't sick like you but def didn't feel good.

I'm not sure what it is. I'm fine at Zumba and my last pregnancy I did pump as well up to about 14 weeks and felt fine.

I ran until 22 weeks. I had pretty bad nausea from 4-15 weeks and was actually sick a couple times, only after running. I put it down to the motion making my nausea worse. Not sure if youve not had any sickness at all though? That's my experience.

Any exercise made me sick with both my pregnancies (although to be fair, I had horrendous 9 month 'morning' sickness both times).

I used to live on the 6th floor without a lift. DH would go up faster than me, open the front door and the door to the toilet so I could go straight in to be sick after the effort of climbing the stairs!

I so don't miss being pregnant smile

But it could just be a bug..... That's what it sounds like, TBH.

Thanks for all your input.
I haven't been sick at all, not in my first pregnancy and not in this one.
I was completely whipped out, couldn't manage to stand in the shower and had to lie down after. Took me about an hour to feel normal again and I was sick 3 times. It's very unusual for me to feel like that so I think my body is trying to tell me it doesn't like running at the moment. I think I'll stick to biking and swimming and see how it goes.

I am a regular weightlifter but in very early pregnancy on the rare occasion i could manage to drag myself to the gym I would feel so faint and sick and weak to the point where I nearly passed out. In the end I just stopped until about week 11 when I was slowly able to ease myself back in. I'm now 15+4 and am up to my pre-pregnancy weights but it's been a slow and frustrating journey of really listening to my body.

i've been v lucky and had only v mild MS (now 35w), but when I did vomit, it was usually because i'd delayed breakfast for some reason...could your episode be related to low blood sugar/empty stomach etc?

I did a fair bit of weight lifting before and during my first pregnancy but haven't gotten back in to it since having my son... There's just not enough time and pregnancy isn't the time to start up again I think, not for me anyway.
This pregnancy has so far taken it out of me a bit and I find myself exhausted. I guess having a 1 year old to look after doesnt help. I nap most days if I can when my little man does and if I'm not in work. It's definitely a matter of listening to your body like you say so hopefully second trimester will be easier. I think the running will be put on pause for now though
