Nell McAndrew certainly not afraid of working out in pregnancy – wow!

Nell McAndrew has exclusively revealed her second pregnancy to HELLO! magazine. (Check it out now!)

No stranger to exercises – the model is 20 weeks pregnant and is keeping up her fitness regime by running six miles a day along with twice-weekly gym sessions!

You have probably realised by now that I advocate exercise in pregnancy 🙂 This story from Nell is a great example of how pre-pregnancy fitness levels inform how much activity you can do when you are expecting. A super fit 39 year old mum of one Nell was running 90 miles a week and was a seasoned long distance runner before she became pregnant again. In her case the amount of exercise she is doing is fine as long as she feels ok and makes sure she builds in some rest time. Also, that she listens to her body and tapers of her sessions a bit later on in her pregnancy. I say – well done Nell! Another fit mum changing preconceptions, I hope your pregnancy is a happy, healthy one.

Just remember if you aren’t as fit as Nell (and most of us aren’t), you will need to set your pregnancy exercise levels according to YOUR fitness and individual pregnancy circumstances x
