Hello all. I confirmed today with a Dr that I am pregnant. I'd be happier if I weren't so scared that my weight will cause this to be a difficult 9 months. I'm 5'7" and weight around 245 lbs. I have lost about 40 lbs since 2009. Can I amp up my efforts and work out more during the 1st trimester, so that the 2nd and 3rd one are less risky? I'd like to feel more fit, have a healthier heart, before I have to give birth. I know I am thinking VERY far ahead but I am just really freaking out over being so big and now pregnant. fyi, no major health issues... yet. And I know I should consult with the Dr but I do not like my obgyn and will get a new one before long.
