My Pregnancy Workouts: 9 to 13 weeks

IMG_1407.JPGThe second half of my first trimester brought a couple of challenges to working out but I was still able to get a workout in at least a few times a week.  Right after we announced our pregnancy, I came down with what I thought was a cold.  Well the sick feeling and headaches have since faded but the congestion seems to be here to stay.  I also started battling fatigue which was only made worse by the heat wave we had.  Ninety plus degree temps at home and in the gym did not give me much motivation to workout so I had to get creative.  Luckily, our condo has a small pool so I started swimming a little bit to cool off and get a little exercise.  But, to end on a good note, the temps cooled off just in time for my first trimester to come to a close and my husband and I had the opportunity to go to Disneyland on the last day of my first trimester! We had such a blast and somehow I lasted through 15 hours of Disney fun.  I went on all the big rides and felt great! Can’t wait to see what the second trimester has in store!
