The issue is simple for me.
I guess that makes me 'Mum on the Walk' for a bit, doesn't it?!
It's a personal choice.
I certainly don't have an opinion (or any authority) on any other's woman's choices - during pregnancy or otherwise.
I simply choose not to run 'with child'.
I am not technically, medically 'supposed' to fall pregnant, so when I do I'm not going to be tempting fate one little bit.
Plenty of research reinforces that it is perfectly safe to maintain the exercise regime you were engaged in just before pregnancy, but I go with my (ever expanding) gut on this one.
It honestly just doesn't feel right.
For a few sickly weeks there, it actually felt downright impossible.
I'm not particularly concerned that I'm losing fitness, tone and endorphins with every day that passes.
I sweat less and chat or belly rub more.
I still use the free weights and exercise bike here at home - but I'm no longer pushing myself.
I'm trying to be the perfect hostess to 'Muppet' - well, the best I can be anyway.
I know I will run again.
(Heck, Magoo has already offered to look after the baby while I go for a run - bless him.
I'm sure the relevant government agencies would have no problem with a four year old babysitter.)
(Keep it down. I can hear you snorting from here.)
In the meantime, I've got some beautiful tiny organs (ovaries even, if you ask me hey Hubby?!!!) to develop and a gorgeous little person to nourish and love.
Do you power on as normal when you're 'duffed'?
