LOL, I really did look pregnant with twins.

    Ur probably safe tho, lol! :) If not message me and we will attack ur OB!

    Lol I love how you used the word attack, sounds like a good plan to me,
    Especially when I feel like I could jump someone for even looking at me wrong lol, I have been so moody the last few days its starting to worry me, that I might attack my hubby if he says one more time that I can't do something lol.

    This is my BIGGEST pet peeve while pregnant. It drives me absolutely crazy how everyone jumps in to tell you what you can't do. Excuse me, I'm pregnant yes but I am NOT some fragile piece of china that needs to be set onto a shelf in bubblewrap for the next 9 months.... GRRR!

    When I was preggers I didn't have a horse, but the entire time I was pregnant (from day one to day before birth), I canoe-camped in the bush, skiied (downhill), drove a skidder, chopped and piled wood, shovelled snow, tilled the garden, ate breakfast, changed my panties... if I did it BEFORE I was pregnant I did it WHILE I was pregnant both times. And both times, on the same days that the kids were born, I was up and active out of bed doing dishes, walking down the road, filling the wood stove -- back to the normal events all over again. The baby came with me in the skidder, skiing, wherever..

    Sitting around doing nothing and changing your lifestyle while you are pregnant is not healthy, IMO, assuming there are no unusual circumstances.

    Yea I'm with Northern on this one! I still go riding constantly, spent last week at a waterpark, spent most of last night out four wheeling, etc. You'll know when it's time to slow down. As for cleaning stalls, working horses, moving hay, feeding, etc. our horses are at our house as is my best friends (starting friday) and my husband is terrified of horses and not a huge fan of my dogs. If I don't feed and clean it simply won't get done and that's not an option!

    See that's probably why I havnt been feeling good, casue all I have been doing to laying around the house doing nothing becasue everytime I try and do something active outside everyone in the family is like "you don't need to be doing that" but I say what the heck Im used to be active and horseback riding everyday I mean I have 6 horses who need to be ridden lol and right now there just chilling in the field I mean there probably enjoying there 9 month vaca lol but I hate to see them get fat and lazy lol. So as soon as I leave the docters and they say everyone is healthy im heading stright to the horse field lol, Im not going to go jump a course but I am going to get all going again. *sigh I feel so much better right now! now I can't wait for my doc appt. Lol! :)

    ^This is perfect! Just keep on keeping on. ;)
    & I agree it's unhealthy to just lay around & do nothing!

    Vicki92, everyone was like that with me too, and my horse was ready to start light work under saddle (had just turned 2), but all I was allowed to do was brush her. I wasnt going to jump on her, but I could carry grain buckets! I can put a halter on! I hated it, but I got so aggravated I gave up... I kept my exercise by walking, but I hated being treated like I was going to break. Or that I was endangering the baby...

    @vikki92 - Thanks! I am starting to feel better now. I have been SO sick for like the past 3 1/2 weeks and exhausted! But everyone said I'd feel better at 12 weeks. I didn't believe them but it's true. Like magic for me. Have you been sick?

    I'm moody and emotional but I'll take it over throwing up everything I eat!

    I've had a lot of that from people, too. Don't lift that. Don't overdo. Don't do this. Honestly, most of my pregnancy I haven't cared because I've felt like poo. But, now that I'm not feeling sick and I have some stamina, I plan to be as active as possible.

    Heck, I may even ride once or twice. My friend has a very trustworthy gelding that is regularly used for therapy. I've been watching them ride lately and maybe next time I'll cool him out after.

    Anyway, it's good to know some people continue with good results through their pregnancy. I've heard it's good to stay active and I don't like to think of myself stuck on the couch for 9 months. There's nothing healthy about that for me or baby!
