Undecided wether exercise is the right choice?

I am constantly hearing "don't go to the gym, don't go for a run" from people since being pregnant. It's driving me mad, these are people who don't even exercise! I cannot believe the stigma behind exercise and pregnancy. How often do you see pregnant people in the gym or even swimming. This link is an article I just read and felt so happy to see. I know what I'm doing is the right thing for me and my baby.

I feel there should be more to offer out there for the active mum and mum to be. I am fortunate that I have P.T s within my gym that have done pre and post pregnancy exercise. But most of the knowledge is text book, so the experience has been positive on both parts. I can do various exercises,  explain how it feels, what doesn't feel right and suggest alternatives that aim for the same impact. Together we have managed to come up with various programs that suit each trimester.

First craving.....

So this is my first craving.... Pineapple!! I have been wanting it for a few days, along with lots of water. I grabbed some on the way to work and nibbled it at 7:30 this morning. 

Today I've felt totally floored and nauseous. I never remember feeling nauseous with my daughter. Trying to keep a front on at work was tough. I got back home in the afternoon and crept back into bed while the house was quiet.
I had to cancel on a wedding reception and just send my partner alone. 
I need to do what my body wants and make sure I don't jeopardise anything with this wee one.

.......and another one!!

So that's another good friend that's pregnant. I am so happy for her and her husband. It brings a closer connection in friendship. There is nothing better than being in the 'Mummy Club' 
I love having the opportunity to help and give any advice. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I knew very few people with children. But most of the friends I have in my life now are parents. 
One if my friends is due the same week in February as the one I lost, I'm not sure how I will feel at that point. Otherwise I'm doing ok. Happy to be around babies and pregnancy but I sometimes feel why was it so easy for everyone else. 
We have been trying now for one and a half years with only one pregnancy. So I am becoming anxious now and every month I get my period I feel so disheartened. It hard work physically and emotionally constantly trying to concieve
