Is that the one with that silly-looking man with the long hair?

I use something similar to that, like an elliptical - it's from Sharper Image and they call it a "strider". I love it - very smooth - no belly-banging when I use it.


Official Due Date - 9/1/06, but scheduled c-section on August 25th.

It's a girl - Penelope Alice

It sounds similar to an elliptical, which is great, so I think you are fine, and if you feel good doing it then even better.


Our first arrived February 6, 2006, what a blessing!! Abigail Susan Hambidge, she is truly a miracle!!!

You should be fine. Cardio is fine during pregnancy. I think you will even be able to use that type of machine your entire pregnancy as long as your body allows you too that is.

Again, just monitor your heart rate

It's kind of like a glider-treadmill. You step up on it, and grab the handles. The handles go all the way to the feet area. Then you start gliding your feet back and forth. It's one of those info-mercial machines. ~~Amy~~

I was wondering if anyone used hte gazelle while they were pregnant? Is it safe and does it work? It seems like it would be low impact for an expecting lady, but I don't know. I need to do something for excercise. ~Amy
