A few weeks ago the news came out that Pippa Middleton was expecting her first child with husband, James Matthews!
Pippa opened up about her first trimester in her latest column for the U.K. supermarket monthly Waitrose Kitchen magazine.
She revealed in the column that she did not battle severe pregnancy sickness, or Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), like her sister Kate.
“I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness. That meant I was able to carry on as normal,” Pippa wrote, as reported by Hello! magazine.
“When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant, I realized I needed to adjust my four to five-day-a-week [fitness] routine,” she wrote, noting that she kept her pregnancy a secret from her gym instructor until the “riskier months” were over.
“I’ve noticed my body change, but through exercise I feel it’s being strengthened,” she wrote. “I’m fanatical about sport and have looked at loads of books and websites on exercise during pregnancy, but have been disappointed by the limited technical information what you can and can’t do.”
“This being my first pregnancy, I had so many questions I felt were still unanswered,” she wrote. “I wanted to know things like, would I strain if I served in tennis, are strokes of swimming safe, can I still do a normal yoga class if I avoided certain positions? Could I still work my abs?”
She added, “I’ve noticed my body change and weight increase, but through effective exercise and sports I feel that it’s been strengthened to support a healthy pregnancy, birth and recovery . . . And ensure that post-baby, my old favorite jeans will still fit eventually!”
