I had a neighbor who did distance running through both pregnancies. She'd run right up until birth and be back out on the roads within 10-12 days. I would suppose it's whatever your body is used to.

This gal had already run 7 marathons and had signed up before she found out she was pregnant. The photo that I saw of her was a glowing, extremely fit looking mom. More power to her. Sounds like her baby was born healthy! Awesome!!

I have no issue with this. If it was her first marathon -- well, that might be a bit questionable.

We've had 6 kids and 3 were born in July. In each case my wife was waterskiing (and I don't mean just being dragged behind the boat - but cutting back and forth) up until a day or two before birth. I think it's what you're used to. As long as you don't make an extreme change to your routine, your body & baby adjust.

But I'm not a doc, just my opinion.

Even living on a lake and being born on water skis - my kids still can't swim for crap. Never put them on a swim team, so they learned like most kids do w/o formal coaching. They spent most of their time on top of the water, ice skating.

My eldest daughter has done a couple of shorter tri's. Same one that has run 3 marathons. Interesting to note that she's middle of the pack on the swim and bike, but really makes up ground on the run.

I have two sisters that have run Boston and were All-America swimmers in high school. They smoke their competition when they do tri's.

Anyway, don't want to hijack this thread -- I'm supportive of women doing what they like when pregnant.
