First of all let me introduce myself as I am new to the board: I am Inęs, I am 26 and am from and live in Portugal! I have been working out for 8 years and the maximum time (1 month) I was away from the gym was last year when I had appendicitis (sp?) surgery, a part from that I always worked out regularly ans intend to do so until the very last days of life!
So, the reason why I am writing here is because next year I am getting married and we are planning to trying to conceive as sőon as we get married, being fit for so long that will be a real big change for me. I know I need to get ready for that moment, speacialy my mind, since I think my body is much well prepared concerning my fitness level.
I have been doing searches for some time now, I have been reading everything related to pregnancy, post-partum, everything and I think I am getting quite a "pro", lol in pregnancy issues! Now I would like to hear from you girlas that work out very intensively and were or are pregnat, I would like to hear from you how you deal with your body changes, how your body changed, how long it took to recover your pre pregnancy body, how do you think genetics playied a role in your pregnancy... well pretty much everything you can share with me.
A little more about myself: I workout 5 times (for a total of 1hour, sometimes a little bit more bu not much, including cardio) a week and lift very heavy, I am pretty muscular and have low body fat, I eat about 2000-2200 calories a day, I am 5'3 (161 cm), I am 129-130 pounds, I am about 15% bf...
I think that is all for now and really hope to hear from all of you moms! thank you!
