To me, it's not worth risking my baby just so I can be the mom that is still doing ring kips and burpees at eight months pregnant. I plan to use common sense, do what feels right to me and listen to my doctor at all times. Don't be selfish at the risk of your future child.
This "issue" of whether CrossFit is safe or not or if moms are harming their babies and putting them at risk has about 50 percent to do with exercise itself, but it also has to do with, in my very vocal opinion, trusting that women know what they are doing with regard to their bodies.
While my levels of intensity and exercise naturally decreased as these pregnancies progressed, the workouts have yet to stop. Yes, even CrossFit.
