Of course, I have to preface this with - talk to your medical provider, as they and you are the only people that can truly determine what is best for your situation. Having said that, I too was running when I became pregnant. In fact, I ran my first 10k at 3 weeks post-conception, before I even knew I was pregnant. I was training for a half-marathon, increasing my mileage slowly week by week. During my first appointment when my pregnancy was confirmed, I was told that I could continue the same level of physical activity that I had been doing but not to increase it any more. Paula Radcliffe is an Olympic-level marathon runner and she ran a marathon 8 months pregnant. Surely she trained and increased mileage during her pregnancy, but again, she's an Olympic athlete. I think it's all about how long you've been running, how long your runs are, and your level of physical fitness.
Personally, I didn't feel comfortable running after I found out I was pregnant. As much as I read and was told that it's perfectly fine until I start to feel uncomfortable, I would have questioned the decision to continue if anything bad happened. This is our first and I'm a worrier by nature. If we have a second I'd probably keep running though. I did get a jogging stroller and let me tell you, I can't wait to lace up those running shoes again! I really miss the mental clarity and euphoric feeling I get when I finish a run. Good luck to you and your husband!!
Thanks so much for the reply. I really appreciate it. Part of the reason this issue really concerns me is because I have had 2 miscarriages. The first time I got pregnant I continued to run, so naturally I worried that the running may have caused it. The second time I got pregnant I pretty much stayed away from exercise all together and I still miscarried.
I will talk to my doctor once I get pregnant again. Hopefully I can at least do some light jogging :)
I will find out next week whether or not I am pregnant again. ...
Thanks for the response :)
