3 months pregnant and going crossfit.

I have bee doing Crossfit for about 3 years and have recently found out I pregnant.
I have been reading Crossfit Mom but find I am still curious about things like Bench press, can I still remain upping the weight? I ask because I hear so many people saying negative things about lying on your back.

Also, should I back off with shoulder press???

I have lightened my slow lifts by 40-50%, and do what feels right with my Olympic lifts. With my WODs I focus on my breathing rather then time - (sigh.)
If there are any other Mums to be or Mums that can suggest some things, I would appreciate that!

Thank you
Happy Holiday!

Re: 3 months pregnant and going crossfit.

Check out She blogged about her experience weightlifting and bootcamp training throughout her pregnancy and recently posted a series of interviews with pregnant women. Not CrossFit specific, but good info.

Hope that helps!

Re: 3 months pregnant and going crossfit.

Hey Meghan,

Look up Rachel Baratz's log on this board. She's my good friend and just had a baby. Crossfitted throughout the pregnancy, so you can probably pick up some good tips on what to expect by reading her workout log.
