Pushing my baby around up and down hills and roads was a beautiful and challenging, loving and bonding experience. I ran until 6 months along when pregnant, had a drug free birth, I never had post partum, I only gained 23lbs and lost all of it in 2 weeks and nursed for a year even whilst working full time. I attribute all this to running!I I even PRd 9 months after birth and BQd 2 yrs later. Ladies, you can do this.
The universe did not bless me with another but pregnancy and early motherhood was a wonderful time. The 33 hrs of labor not so much but talk about an ultra! So don't be worried about losing fitness. And I know my child now 15, is healthy and athletic ..because I like to think first fond memory was of mom and kid special time while I pushed him along.
