excercising while pregnant

posted 1 decade 4 years ago
I'm gettin a bit big now, and it's starting to effect the way i excercise. People keep telling me i should be excercising so much if i'm pregnant. Obvioulsy i tell them their full of rubbish and even my GP has a agreed that it would be benefiacial to all of us to carry on excercising.

I would like to know what i should and what i shouldn't be doing if possible. My doc said excercise bike would be really good, so i've been hitting that for like an hour a day. Although it gets a bit boring day in day out.

So has anyone got any good excercises that i could get on with? I was thinking about Yoga, is that any good for pregnancies? Suspect

When I was pregnant with the twins I continued doing most of my exercise routes. I stopped doing abdo work completely and any exercisers that needed me to use my abdo muscles but I continued going to the gym, yoga and jogging. I informed my gym instructor and yoga instructor that I was pregnant and they just adapted my route around the pregnancy. I stopped jogging at around 16 weeks as it was proving to much work and I was getting out of breathe a lot quicker so just changed jogging to power-walking. I also suffered with terrible SPD from 7 weeks and that also hindered the routes I was able to do. I would continue excercising but listen to your body very closely. Stop when your body says enough even if you have only done a 5 minute work out.

Hello there

I have been cycling a fair bit at five months pregnant. I find a gentle bike ride nice but I've cut down the mileage and the hilly routes I used to take.

Hello my dear friend, congratulations on your pregnancy and you should enjoy this beautiful period of your life. It is always one of the beautiful and amazing times for any lady because we always had a dream to become mother of a beautiful baby. Pregnancy is also very challenging period for any lady because our body goes through many hormonal and physical changes during pregnancy. It is always important to stay active and fit during pregnancy. It is a good thing that you are aware of exercise and fitness during pregnancy. It will always depend on the time of pregnancy that what kind of exercises you can perform. When it comes to knowing about some good exercises during pregnancy, I will suggest you consult with your health expert before choosing it. He can give you good advice according to your physical condition and health. Yoga can be really helpful in this condition and yoga is one of most effective methods to stay fit and healthy during pregnancy. If you also want to add regular yoga in your routine, I will suggest you consult with any professional of yoga who can help you with some good yoga exercises. You should not perform yoga exercises without good knowledge during pregnancy. You can also get help with YouTube videos and blogs to know about some good yoga exercises during pregnancy. It is also important to add some good nutrition in your diet during pregnancy. With good nutrition, yoga and regular exercises, it will be easy for you to face the challenges of pregnancy. I hope it will work for you and you will get happiness and will be blessed with a beautiful and healthy baby.

For all the pregnant women out there! I think, most important thing to do when you're pregnant is stay active. Exercising doesn't say that it has to be strenuous or backbreaking. What you can do is walk around extensively. Jog would also help. Avoid gymanstics. It's risky. There's danger of tripping/falling. Make sure to not compromise on your pregnancy while you're trying to maintain health. Smile Meanwhile, keep sharing interesting things happening to you during pregnancy. What are your unique experiences? I keep hearing these stories. Some of them are so humorous. Mostly add to my knowledge about childbirth. So, yeah. Keep sharing. Love xx

I do think that specialized pregnancy classes is the best choice for exercising during this period and also walking and swimming are very helpful. In my opinion it is great to care about your body but no exaggerating is needed. The best thing is to stay active and eat healthy! This is the best you can do for both you and your baby.
