My Pregnancy Fitness Routine

When I was pregnant with Camden, I went to the gym mayyybe two times. And I WAS NOT happy with myself! Not because of weight gain (obviously that’s going to happen) but because working out helps my anxiety, gives me routine, and boosts my mood! So this time around I promised myself I wouldn’t stop my workouts. During my first trimester I only worked out for a couple weeks and then the nausea hit HARD. I gave myself a pass because the couch was the only place I could stand to be lol. I started feeling better around 16 weeks and have been going to the gym 3 times a week. I feel like I have a pretty good routine down now and wanted to share with you guys. Below are a few things that I enjoy doing at the gym.

I spend 30 minutes on the treadmill at a 4.0 incline and walk between 3.5-4.0. Then I get on the stair stepper and TRY to do 8-10 minutes but I honestly feel like I’m dying on that thing so sometimes I only last 5 minutes.
