Hi girls I really want to start exerising but I ve found going for walks impossible as I need to pee every 2o mins and dont fancy squating in a ditch!! I want to take up swimming but im only 7 weeks gone should I wait until 12 weeks I ve read you shouldnt take up new excersise in the first trimester? :wv

doolittle you shouldn't take up any new exercise while pregnant but I'd say swimming would be ok as long as you weren't doing a load of lenghts or learing how to swim. I was very active before but I haven't done anything since 6 or 7 weeks because I've be far too tired. Hopefully it'll pass soon before the lazyness kicks in :o0
