How to exercise when heavily pregnant?
Exercise and pregnancy how safe is it for baby?
My fiance and I are about to have our first child and we're being incredibly careful of what she eats, what supplements she takes (we discovered melatonin messed with hormones that could mess with fetal development!). I know that a pregnant woman can exercise but I think there are limits to what kind of exercise she can do and for how long.
I know being active is best and is actually better for the child birth (just read an article about that), but you don't want to over strain yourself. Walking is something you should do everyday when prego, but anything like running too much or too fast, weight training (even light weights), or strenuous exercises like sit ups, overstretching and the like are not recommended. I'd curious what people have to say about this question- Great Question Jimmy.
Thanks Jerrico and congratulations, good to see you.....jimmy
Walking is probably your safest bet. Pregnancy isn't the time to start a new work out routine; however, if your used to working out, then you can keep doing low impact exercise while your pregnant. Stop if your feeling dizzy or light headed.
Yoga is another safe exercise while pregnant.
Walking, swimming, and yoga are all great exercises to do while pregnant. Anything that is low impact is good. I wrote a hub about a condition that you can get during pregnancy. There is a video that shows how to prevent it. I wish I'd known it existed and how I could've prevented it! Read about it here: http://fitmom.hubpages.com/hub/Diastasi … -Baby-Moms
pregnancy is not the time to take heavry evercise plan so i strongly suggest you to have light exercises and diet also...
I've exercised heavily through most of my pregnancies, running and going to the gym daily...90 minutes of cardio a day, weight every other day. My last four pregnancies I never missed a day working out. Monitoring your heart rate, making sure you are getting lots of water and proper nutrition, you can safely carry on with your routine pre-pregnancies, with the exception of high risk contact sports. Always check with you physician!
Due to my diabetes, it was important for me to plan my meals and snacks around physical activity. I was working out right until labour began, day of. Exercise is a key part of my prenatal care.
As long as you are having no complications it's totally fine. I went hiking and did yoga and it made my second pregnancy much easier than my first where I was overly cautious and wasn't active enough. Women throughout history were always very active while pregnant. Unless there's a medical reason not to be, more active is always better. Exercise benefits mom and baby.
Hi, as for me I visited yoga classes during my pregnancy and after delivery, it really helped me when facing with labor and to keep form after it, so you may consult here https://saymommy.com/mom_1123_advantage … -yoga.html hope it'll help you too, good luck!

It seems so easy to slip into a more sedentary routine during pregnancy. Those swollen ankles, that achy back and that baffling lack of energy don’t really make for good motivators for exercise! However, an active pregnancy is the best way to ensure easy childbirth, unless of course, there are...
