Jogging/Running Post Partum

Hello all- I'm currently 15 weeks prego with my first. My husband and I were (before first trimester hit me) avid runners prior to this pregnancy, and one of my pick-me ups has been window shopping for one of those super high tech, expensive jogging strollers- you know, the feather-weight ones with the bicycle-like wheels. Am I just lying to myself? Fellow jogging moms, when were you first able to start jogging again and bring your baby with you? I'd like to do some expectation management of my body and also have a better understanding of what is safe, physically, for the baby. Thanks!

    Most joggers arent meant for babies under 6 months old.   I had one but they had to be able to sit up before they could use it.  You can start running at 6 weeks, before that you can walk and cary the baby in a moby.

    Haha, that's what I was thinking too!


    OP - You might check out what members on the Babies group are saying about different strollers.
