I continued mountain biking until I was six months pregnant and only stopped then because my SPD was crippling for a few days after each ride. I reached a similar conclusion - that it is about sticking within the limits of what you know you are capable of. The HCPs I spoke to about it (midwife and consultant) had no problem with it, although I didn't specifically mention that I was competing in free ride events at 12 weeks pregnant *&)

I can disrecommend 'The Best Friend's Guide to Pregnancy' in this regard by the way, she thinks that the only purpose of exercise is to keep your model dimensions so as you're screwed on that front while pregnant you shouldn't bother.

PS: I don't think I said it on the original post - congrats!!

That was one of the things that *particularly* irritated me about that book. (The very gender-normative / hetero-normative assumptions in general also pissed me right off.) It did have some useful info, though.
