Wii Fit while pregnant


I know a lot of you have a Wii Fit, so thought i'd ask...does anyone 'play' it while pregnant? We got it months ago but i was always nervous about getting on it, as it will just tell me i am getting fatter and i was already so self conscious about the weight gain from pregnancy.

Anywho...today i figured what the heck...i'll jump on it, it'll be nice to see it say "you lost 20lbs!!!!" in a month or so when i have the baby .

I haven't talked to my OB about exercising...tbh she wants me on bed rest...but i've felt loads better the past month and have been off my feet more often than not.

Is there anything i should avoid doing while pregnant? I don't think i'll do a lot of the strength training exercises like pushups and those things...but what about the yoga poses? I'm scared to really streeeeeetch my body as i am not sure what a lot of stretching could do (if anything)? I'm sticking to doing the basic activities the Wii Fit has to offer but want to get an idea of what i should avoid!

You know, I don't have a wii fit yet, but am planning to get one. But I have played Dance Dance Revolution my entire pregnancy, in fact I played it for a good half hour today. If you can play DDR I'm sure the wii fit would be fine.

probably, as long as you've been staying in shape the whole time. Hell I do jumping jacks and go for walks and stuff. I can't do as much as before, but I can still get up and move around and my Dr said "If you can do it, more power to you" lol

hubbie hasn't let me near our Wii since finding out I was pg! He's a bit over protective bless his heart. Mind you - I enjoy playing tennis the best and get rather physical so probably best for me to steer clear......

if it's gentle then I don't see why not...

I used wii fit while pregnant it was loads of fun. Didn't use it for a long time after the birth though as I had a section. It's great fun!

I'd say maybe just check it with your doc if he had wanted you on bedrest but otherwise go for it - I've got one too but haven't used it - I'm also afraid of it telling me I've become a fat bugger and i don't want to see what my mini mii looks like seeing as the picture gets fatter too!!

we have one too although i have to say i haven't used it in ages! i wish they had a pregnant setting tho! it would be a great way of tracking weight gain and stuff and could suggest the excercises that r most suitable in pregnancy! and your mii could look pregnant instead of just fat!
