Gymnastics in early pregnancy.

Hi,
I had a miscarriage in December at two months.
I do an hour and a half of gymnastics a week, with lots of abdominal work.
Could this be why I miscarried?
I am still trying for a baby and people have told me that you should avoid all exercise for the first three months.
Should I stop gym to avoid another miscarraige?
Thank you very much for your help.


Think logically and trust your common sense. Light gymnastics should not make you miscarry again, there is nothing to prevent you form exercising during the first three months at all. You only need restrict abdominal exercise in the later stages, when you will find you are too big to do them properly anyway.
