This is the first week that I have felt almost normal. Suffered terribly with sickness for the past 20 weeks. I want to return to some kind of exercise, and always loved walking and swimming. I can't go swimming now obv, but I started doing my usual walk route this week, 5 mins of it was up a not so steep incline, and my heart rate was up. Does anyone know if it's safe to return to exercise you've done for years, even if it takes a while to get used to it again? It didn't feel uncomfortable - it felt invigorating and I felt so happy getting to the top of my little hill. The rest of the 1hr walk was on the flat.
Btw have done it every day this week and baby still active and moving around
