@sonyxxmunions Wow – you’ve been busy. But you’re going to need your strength to take care of 2 little babies. Try to do the warm-up video again, and shoot for 3 1/2 minutes this time. Every little bit you do now will make it that much easier for you to recover and get back in shape later. Right now, don’t think about your weight or your shape, just exercise for the health of it…for energy and stamina. Then in June or July, you can focus on regaining your shape and toning up your muscles.
I soooo wish I found you a long time ago. I got pregnant in September of 2008, gave birth to a baby girl in June of 2009, got pregnant AGAIN in July on 2009, and my son is now due in 1 month. I lost all my weight within that month in between, but I was not toned. My body has been through a lot getting pregnant one after another like this. I feel I could have been better off if I had thought to look up preg. excercises MUCH sooner! Great excercises anyhow.
Wow – thank you, it’s so nice to hear that. Keep up the good work and please send me updates on your pregnancy and your baby’s birth.
Wow Doctorcathy! I am so happy I have found you! Pre-pregnancy I was into intense crossfit workouts but quickly realized that it did not meet my new body’s needs. Since becoming pregnant, I have been running on a treadmill and using the elliptical to keep my fitness level up but I noticed I was losing muscle tone. No prenatal weight lifting regime was meeting my needs until now. I am currently 7 months along and love your workouts! Thanks!
Thank you – just keep exercising and watch your food choices – be sure to select only healthy, natural foods. Avoid processed foods, greasy or fried foods and skip fast food altogether. Eat tons of fruits, veggies, whole grains and lean meats. Be sure to get drink at least 10 glasses of water every day, and make time for yourself to enjoy your 2nd pregnancy, your 1st baby and your amazing body!
Keep me posted!
I was 5′ 5″125 lbs. when I got pregnant with my daughter in August 08. I gained 40 lbs. She was 7 lbs. 14 oz. healthy, natural, perfect, pain- free home/water birth. I’m 3 months pregnant now at 150 lbs. and afraid of gaining another 40 and I’ve only just begun a workout routine. Is there any hope for me to safely reduce my potential weight gain over the next 6 months? You are such an inspiration!
Thanks – see? Anything is possible if we put our minds to it…I gained 18 pounds with my pregnancy, had a natural birth and my baby weighed 8 lbs, 8 oz. Just 5 days after he was born, I only weighed 3 pounds more than the day I became pregnant. It’s all in the preparation.
your body is amazing
Feel free to use water bottles, cans, even books would work. I’ve just finished a video that shows some exercises that use only your body’s weight for resistance – check it out.
a plastic bottle filled with water… can of beans etc… anything that causes resistence…
i must confess i have NOT exercised, but God is convicting me to take better care of my body. I dont have weights, is there something else i can use
If you do not have any weights, you can fill up a gallon jug with water – 1 gallon weighs 8 pounds – and use one gallon jug in each hand. If that’s too heavy, begin with a small water bottle and increase to a bigger water bottle over time.
Thank you – I’m glad you are here with me…keep exercising and taking good care of yourself for your baby. Follow along with my videos and you should be just fine.
By the way what aboout if you dont have the equipments? And dont have the space in the house to keep the equipments. Are there any other alternatives that we can use as a equipment?
Hi Dr. Cathy.
I am Really glade to find this lovely videos as my antenatel classes has closed down.
I really wanted to do regular exercise during my pregnancy but didn’t know how to do it without a teacher. scared to do something wrong. recently thought of looking at youtube, And thank GOD that i found you. Now i can continue my exercise.
I must Thank you with your lovely work and effort for all pregnant women, as it is really useful.
Fantastic – you sound like you are on the right track! Keep up the good work and keep me posted…
I love all your videos! I am 16 weeks pregnant and look forward to continuing with all your exercises right to when i deliver and probably beyond!!
fantastic – glad you’re getting an early start…keep me posted
You are fabulous, i am sooo glad i found you, i am about 7 weeks pregnant at the moment xo
I agree, you should prepare for conception, pregnancy and birth. Perhaps I can find some time to make some more videos…
Dr, Kathy… You are in fantastic shape. As a gym rat, I doubt that very many women at your stage or pregnancy can do what you do in these very excellent videos. Have you considered an exercise routine for women who want to become pregnant? It seems to me that the best thing to to is to be in one’s best possible shape before becoming pregnant. Cheers, Teddy
I never like to recommened ways to lose weight without knowing you personally, but if your midwife is okay with you walking every day for 20 – 30 mintes to help manage your weight, that would be a great idea. Remember, this is a time to be as healthy as possible, for your baby’s sake. Manage your weight so it does not become a burden for your baby, but do not diet or starve yourself. Eat healthful foods and exercise a little every day.
Dr Cathy, you look so fab! Congrats on your delivery. I used to weigh 125pounds and 5’4″ tall before pregnancy. I’m 28 weeks pregnant and already ballooning at 30pounds. Too much weight too soon. What can I do to lose the weight as I’m only supposed to gain 35 max for whole pregnancy|?
I have already had my baby, but in this video I was about 39 weeks pregnant. My pregnancy lasted 42 1/2 weeks.
Hi Dr. Cathy,
But just curious are you really pregnant???
