HI Dion, As far as I know heavy exercise is not recommended for the first 12 wks as this is the most crucial part of pregnancy.. I power walk for 2 hrs a day & do light yoga at home... Will go back on the cross trainer in a couple of wks when past the 12 wk mark..

thanks for the reply, if i could go on the cross trainer after 12 weeks i would be happy, i would of thought that is quite a heavy machine to use, il keep that in mind, all is not lost. women!were never happy.

The Cross Trainer wouldnt be high impact neither would the exercise bike... I think just steer clear of the Rowers, Ab Machines etc.
