If there is anything I learned from my first pregnancy, it’s that pregnancy is unpredictable. Nothing about your non-pregnant state can give you clues on how your pregnancy will go. Will you be nauseous? What aches and pains will you experience? What about energy – will you be tired all the time? What will your birth and recovery be like?
Every pregnant and postpartum body is so different, not only from other pregnant/postpartum bodies, but from itself as it changes week by week. I’m sharing my own fitness experience before, during, and post pregnancy here as the story of what worked for me this time around.
