Regardless of what my great-aunt Imy / great-uncle Carl / great-aunt Cheryl / anyone else thinks, I feel cross country skiing is perhaps THE MOST PERFECT pregnancy exercise. I think as far as they (old fashioned thinkers) are concerned, pregnant women should be lying on the couch for 9 monthes. Not exactly the best way to stay fit and healthy. If doctors approve women to continue RUNNING as long as it is "comfortable," then seriously, how awesome is skiing?! Don't worry I don't do running in the winter regardless. TOO LAZY!
Cross country skiing is low impact, has a pretty low risk of falling (I don't really have a protruding abdoment yet anyways), and is not super duper strenuous. Just enough exercise to feel "hot" and there-for know you are getting a workout. I've skiied throughout the last two monthes and 4 of the last 5 days; I'm majorly dreading the day the snow melts.
