Running and Pregnancy

My journey of running through my first pregnancy.

It is important to note that I am not a physician and everything I am sharing is my personal experience. Please consult your Doctor before doing anything new. I discussed my running with my OBGYN at my first appointment and she was very encouraging of it.

When I first found out I was pregnant I immediately took to the internet to read as much as I could about pregnancy and running (of course!)  I was surprised that I couldn’t find many people who really shared their running during pregnancy, or really much information at all about it. I made a decision right there to document my running during pregnancy and share as much as I could from start to finish.

That being said, you can find all the posts I did on the topic below along with my week by week (starting at week 14) running recaps. If you have any questions, you can always reach out to me via email at runningwifesara{at}gmail{dot}com.

Running and Pregnancy: 29 Weeks

I told my husband the other night I can’t believe that on Monday I will be 30 weeks. In the beginning of pregnancy 30 weeks feels like you are almost there, and while you are you also have 10 weeks to go! It feels so close and so far away at the same time. I’m at a...

Running and Pregnancy: 28 Weeks

Hello 3rd trimester! How crazy is that!? I feel like it wasn’t that long ago that we were just finding out we were pregnant. I know the weeks are counting down but finally after a rough start, I’ve been able to take most of this week more in stride than I have...

Running and Pregnancy: 27 Weeks

This is the FINAL week in my 2nd trimester. As of Monday, I will officially be in the 3rd trimester! That is so hard for me to believe! I am going to be seeing the doctor every 2 weeks now and that kind of set reality in for me when she told me that. The time is...

Running and Pregnancy: 26 Weeks

These weeks are just clicking by. Thankfully, this was a productive week even though a few wrenches were thrown in our way at the house.  Every time I make a little progress towards getting ready for our little man I feel so much better!  Little steps will get us...

Pregnancy and Running: 25 Weeks

These weeks are seriously flying by. However; if some days you ask me I’ll tell you these days are dragging. They say the days are slow but the years are fast right? I can see that! I’ve been dealing with some pretty extreme exhaustion this week which is pretty...

Pregnancy and Running: 24 Weeks

We have only 3 months until this little boy is expected to arrive. I really don’t know how that happened! It’s exciting and terrifying all at once but I’m just trying to take it a day at a time and just do what I can do. I have to say though between the realization of...

Pregnancy and Running: 23 Weeks

It’s hard to believe on Monday I will be 6 months pregnant. Seriously, where is this time going? Some days I feel like these are LONG days and then before I know it we are in our 6th month? I think I need to get on top of a few things! The good news is we’ve made some...

Pregnancy and Running: 22 Weeks

Week after week goes by and it starts to get more and more real. Not only for the fact that my belly continues to grow, but I realize just how quickly December is approaching. I was also contacted this week about a baby shower and I can hardly believe that we are even...

Pregnancy and Running: 21 Weeks

This is my personal experience with running and pregnancy. Please consult your Doctor before stating any exercise program. Week 21! Wow. I feel like the days pass so slowly but when I look at the calendar and see how quickly December is approaching I have a tiny bit...

Pregnancy and Running: 20 Weeks

This is my personal experience with running and pregnancy. Please consult your Doctor before stating any exercise program. We are halfway there! It’s hard to believe that in just 20 more weeks (maybe less maybe more) we will have a sweet little baby become part of our...

Pregnancy and Running: 19 Weeks

This is my personal experience with running and pregnancy. Please consult your Doctor before starting any exercise program. It’s is really hard for me to believe that Monday will mean I am halfway through this pregnancy. In some ways I’m already ready to meet this...

Pregnancy and Running: 18 Weeks

This is my personal experience with running and pregnancy. Please consult your Doctor before starting any exercise program. Oh boy. This week was something else. Maybe it was the long weekend, maybe it was just getting a bit further into pregnancy, or maybe it was...
