Is there anyone out there who has fallen pregnant while still bodybuilding?
Against all expectations i did and i am now 6 months pregnant! Ive kept up a little training but have lost A LOT of muscle.
The problem i have now is concerning my weight gain (or lack of) during pregnancy- i started off at 144lbs and now at 27 weeks pregnant I am 134lbs. I wasnt too worried as i assume it is muscle loss and to be expected, Ive been eating what i want -mainly complex carbs!! altho my appetite is less as im not training much.
Now scans show my baby is growing a little slower than she should..nothing major but just to keep an eye on her growth..
from research i find that low maternal weight gain is associated with the risk of a fetus being small for gestational age...but how can i apply any of this to my situation when i didnt start off like the average woman and i have obvious reason for lack of weight gain?
If there are any other bodybuilders who are or have been pregnant id really appreciate hearing your experiences and advise!
