Hi All, I am trying to keep up some little bit of exercise but it's getting hard.

Went for a slow walk round our park with DH last night and my god now I can hardly move my hips are sore and my pelvis tender.

What does everyone else do ?

Not a lot! If I overdo it I get a lot of pain. I'm 39 weeks and still doing pregnancy yoga and walking the school run. That's about as energetic as I can get!

Swimming. I remember a staff member asking when I was due and I said "oh, five days ago." She was shock

I realise now she probably thought I would give birth in the pool or something but that didn't cross my mind at the time.

All I do is walk. I have had to slow down due to breathlessness, but I'm OK to still he'd up hills etc.
I think pregnancy affects us all differently. I've gd, hyperemesis and was diagnosed with PUPPS today.
You can only do what your body will allow, if you try to push it you'll suffer later. Take it easy brew

Walking and yoga, basically. Yoga always helped my hips.

36 weeks tomorrow and do a fair bit of walking (no car), I'm getting quite slow now though and often get overtaken by small children and the elderly...

I walked and swam up to 42 weeks. It took me twice as long to do my walking routes than it had a few months prior.

I carried on until 38 weeks - wasn't running any marathons though! The advice I have been given now i'm PG with DC2 is to listen to my body and not to start doing anything new... With DC1 I was mostly swimming at the end and doing a bit of light resistance work - my personal trainer asked me to do a chin up at 38 weeks (as a joke of course) but by then my main weights work was getting my spherical self off of the sofa. wink

I'm walking (slower than I used to!), swimming (slower than I used to!) and doing pregnancy yoga.

I swam up until the day before my DD was born by elcs at 39 weeks. Was still churning out 40 lengths freestyle too. Someone in the showers asked me if I was having twins and I said 'no, but I am having a baby tomorrow!' She was a bit shock.

It's good to keep doing what you can as long as it doesn't make you feel worse.
