Jan 31, 2014 Some valid points here I train pre-natal and post women quite often. I have seen exercise during the pregnancy produce some of the most gorgeous pregnant women I have ever seen. I mean just "beautiful"..not even sexual, but just simply amazing...glowing. To me there is nothing more attractive then a fit pregnant woman. I believe in women exercising up until the last moment and healthy diet. But also within reason. The kipping seems a bit much as does starvation. I can see how someone said it reflects on their potential to parent, because to a degree it does show "selfishness" instead of "selflessness" What I can say is that when "we" were pregnant with my daughter our doctor advocated sex, and even rough sex. He actually claimed that not only would it not hurt the baby but in his experience regular rough sex during pregnancy produced healthier babies. This is a whole other topic..but it's kind of relative.
