MY BACK STORY:
At the age of 40 I became pregnant for the first time. Being a Personal Trainer and being fit and healthy I found that in some ways pregnancy was not too bad. I believe that by exercising regularly prior to getting pregnant I was in the best shape I could be to have an uncomplicated pregnancy. That said, I was shocked by how tired it made me, I was lucky to make it past 9pm before I was in bed.
When I hit 6 months gestation, the 1st Covid-19 lockdown came into effect, I could no longer do my spin classes although I implemented an exercise regime at home. I was lucky enough to already own a fair amount of portable equipment so didn’t have trouble in this respect. Due to medical (not pregnancy) complications I was admitted to hospital at 7 months and ended up having a blood transfusion. This left me with severe anaemia that was not resolved until about a week before my due date. Needless to say this put an end to my fitness plan. I tried doing some simple exercises but can honestly say, I could barely make it up the stairs without having to sit down as soon as I got to the top. I was ultimately limited to simple mat Pilates moves and bodyweight demos for my clients.
What I am trying to say is, with every best intention and will in the world, I understand exactly how you can feel when pregnant and why you might find it near on impossible to motivate yourself to exercise.
