    Indoor Trainer Racing when Pregnant?

    Hi all.
    I'm pregnant and have moved my fall/winter cycling to the trainer at this point. I normally like to participate in a winter indoor trainer racing series on saturdays (they use computrainers). I really hope once I'm out of my first trimester and not feeling so nauseous that I can do a few of these races with the intent of some zone 3/4 training in these races (with the plan that I'll listen to my body and withdrawal if I need to). Once again, they are indoors, on trainers in groups of 8 (coed). Anyone else do this type of thing in their pregnancy?
    Thanks,
    Em

    Hopefully your prenatal is progressive enough to advise you to you&yours' best interest over covering his/her ars liability wise. Good luck there. But perhaps like sport medicine practices, there are similarly minded obstetrics practices you might look to.?

    Congrats BTW, and all the best!

    Congrats on your pregnancy. And you are hard core. You should talk to your doctor about this.

    I haven't done it but as far as I know, as long as it's okay with your doc, it should be fine.

    Sounds like a safe, responsible option. But yeah, make sure you don't have any risk factors that would preclude it. (Just stay off the rollers. ;)).

    Thanks all.
    Both my family doctor and midwife said to keep doing whatever I was doing and listen to my body. In my Dr's words "Olympic athletes get pregnant all the time and I promise they train harder than you." Gotta love that!
    This is the beauty of Canada - far less concern for liability here.
    Def. off the rollers!
