I'm not the skinniest girl alive but I'd like to lose some of my belly fat so I can see my bump earlier. I don't want to lose weight just the extra baggage. Is that bad on the baby though? Am I weird for wanting to do that, haha, I'm just waaay excited. :)

Yes... I think in most cases if your pregnancy is healthy, it is actually encouraged.

I'm not going to do anything too hardcore but just enough to see a little progress.

My doctor just told me to not push myself past the point of labored breathing.

Its totally fine to work out some runners actually continue running throughout their whole pregnancy. Just don't pick up any really heavy weights or anything obviously and make sure to drink plenty water

THey all say to keep on the same routine you were on when you were pregnant. I will say this (not to freak you out) when I was pregnant the first time, I started working out. I felt a POP. I instantly stopped and went home. I did miscarry that child and I do wonder if it was because I over strained myself. If you want to lose weight, just eat a healthy diet. Being pregnant burns 250 extra calories as it is. I lost wieght when I was pregnant with my DD. I just stayed away from fat.

Thank you for that! I might just do some extra walking.

Walking, light weights (5lbs or less), would be a good place to start. If you weren't working out before you got pregnant, it isn't recommended to start any new strenuous work out, but walking isn't going to hurt anything. Plus, if you watch your fat intake you can help lose extra pounds. I lost a lot of weight while I was pregnant, mostly from morning sickness, but I was eating better which helped also.
