Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I haven't worked out regularly for several months, i want to get back into the swing of things (i.e. a workout DVD for 40 min a day 5 days a week - jillian michael's body revolution) However, i am also trying to get pregnant and know that they say, don't do anything more than your used to when pregnant. Am I putting myself at risk of having a miscarriage if I were to be exercising and not knowing i am pregnant, and what level of exercise can i do once i am pregnant. I am in my late 20's, in a relatively healthy body weight, but am on the higher end of the spectrum. Any advice?

I`m 39 and 13 weeks pregnant and use to train for bodyfitness until I recently learned that I was pregnant. I use to lift heavy weights and it never affected my pregnancy. I did modify my routine since, not lifting weights anymore but exercice is not an issue, inactivity is, unless you have a medical condition.

An averag exercise dvd should not be strenuous enough to put you at risk for miscarriage, but it never hurts to get advice from your doctor.I am a couple of weeks pregnant and plan on lifting weights (not super heavy) and doing some amount of cardio during this pregnancy.
