EXERCISE DURING PREGNACY
Hi, I'm 12 weeks along and still going to the gym my gynae & instructors said it was OK as long as I do not over do, but last night another Mum pointed out that I should not get my heart rate up to much as this could destress the baby. Is this true? mY Doc never said a word about my heart rate only pain & discomfort levels any ideas?

Yes, it is important not to push your heart rate too high for too long.
