    Pregnancy fitness forum

    I was searching the web and can't find any really good fitness forums for us pregnant ladies.

    Any chance we could have one here?

    Good point. Maybe that's why the only forums that looked good where pay-by-the-month ones.

    Which may be why it might be a good idea to have one section here. Honestly, I can't find any one place that has all the info we need regarding fitness, excercie, nutrition, etc.

    Hickerchick just had a baby and fitgirl and Stacey are both wanting to get pregnant.

    Throw the idea around with the mods and see what the general consensus is

    Just because they aren't pregnant doesn't mean they can't post. Many here have had babies and could give input! JMO.........

    That was be an extremely niche forum. I don't think it'd have a lot of traffic.

    Even if you had a forum for it, I think anyone that came across information would post articles, etc. in it, plus you have many women as members here that are young and will eventually be starting families, you also have some mothers here that can share their experiences while being pregnant and also what to do and not do to before, during and after pregnancy, and just think Prince, you might be the only site that has this, which may bring in more traffic

    Satan's wife is pregnant right now, so maybe he'll learn something or we can just kick 'em out

    you may be correct, but that is not what this forum is about...it's a bodybuilding and fitness forum.

    Fitness does not stop with pregnancy!

    I think there are alot of misconceptions about excercise during pregnancy and a forum that addresses questions and answers about it would be very attractive to alot of the women on this forum including nonpregnant and those contemplating pregnancy.

    However, with that said, it may still be too subspecialized for this forum as Prince stated.

    I belong to a bike forum that has a Women's Issues subforum and there we talk about everything from wearing tampons to pregnancy issues etc. (I mountain biked till 4months of pregnancy and rode 20 -25 miles on the road in sweltering humid weather up until two days of delivery).

    Of course alot of guys jumped into the conversations in this subforum.

    Certain things like squats can induce labor though can't they? Shouldn't lower impact things be implemented?

    Not that I've been pregnant, lately.

    Exactly, these are the types of questions alot of women have!

    My female body builders have mostly concentrated on upper body workouts after the sixth month. Up until the sixth month, most continue their lower leg workouts with slightly modified weights and proper breathing technique. Remember, in many parts of the world women are doing heavy labor right up until delivery and our bodies can accomodate alot more then most believed we could. I look at biking, Atlanta is very hilly and even into my 9th month of pregnancy I was cranking on the big gear up some big ass hills that people would push their bikes up ...that's alot of downward force, probably equivalent to doing some squats with moderate weights. (Of course this was with good followup and no predisposing conditions like incompetant cervix etc.) Each woman is different, if a woman starts spotting after such an effort or has mild contractions, they need to stop. (I found this to be the case only in women uaccostomed to working out.) That is the key, what seems like incredible exertion for those who don't usually participate in certain sports, is nothing for those women who have been engaging in twice the load, distance, speed etc. before pregnancy.

    My wife was working as a full-time waitress until the day she went into labor. (no, she is not a waitress anymore)

    by the way these conditions preclude or contradict excercise until you speak with your doc.

    Heart disease
    An infectious disease such as hepatitis
    Severe high blood pressure
    Lung disease
    A history of miscarriages
    Uterine bleeding
    Placenta previa — when the placenta blocks the cervix

    I know nurses turning and lifting 300 pound blobs in the hospital in their 8th or 9th month of pregnancy!
