As you all know our bodies are constantly changing during pregnancy! A woman’s body will go through more changes during the 9 months of her pregnancy than a man’s will in his entire life! It’s important to know how these changes can affect your exercise routine. And it’s also important to know what signs your body will give you to tell you to slow down or stop.
One of the ways your body prepares to give birth is through the hormone relaxin. This hormone kicks in to loosen your joints, particularly those of the pelvic bones in order to more easily deliver a baby. However, relaxin can affect other joints of your body as well, and you may notice that you feel a little wobbly at times. It is important to be careful during exercise when doing side to side movements or balance activities because your joints are more likely to give out in these situations. Another time to be careful of this is during stretching. Stretching is very important during pregnancy but overstretching can be a problem while the joints are so loose.

I recently had a "bad massage". Has this happened to you? I asked for deep tissue full body massage, but what I got was someone who clearly was new to the job or "winging it". I am still sore and achy a week later! Yikes! This really isn't a reflection of massage therapy as a profession, because I could have spoken up. I could have said 'no, stop. no, too hard, no, that's too tender, no.."
Why didn't I? Silly, right? Well - there I am- bare and face down under a sheet, on a table, in a dark room, in a long hallway, with a stranger, Somehow, I was intimated, embarrassed for her not knowing how to do her job... silly right?
Silly. But then I remembered the fundamental power a person in charge has, like with teaching a class. I had to ask myself, do moms in my Stroller Strides class feel this inability to speak their concerns to me? Am I making myself open and concerned for their safety. Do I regularly ask, "Any questions? How are you feeling?".

The first time I ran across Fit4Mom I was looking to begin working out after having my first baby. I loved kids and was looking forward to having some of my own so it was a perfect fit for me. I started going to Stroller Strides in Clear Lake mid summer, and absolutely loved it! I loved working out with other moms and while meeting their fitness goals. After taking two sessions of Body Back - I exceeded my fitness goals. I never thought I could run, plank, burpee, and build my abs!
Fast forward to fall 2014-- I wanted to look at bringing classes closer to my home, in case I did get pregnant, I wanted to be able to make it to class with the new baby. Afterall, I couldn't imagine life without my support group and this workout routine that worked so well for me and my daughter. One of the biggest factors in my decision was that I wanted this group to be around when I had my own children. I wanted them to grow up with an awesome group of playmates, as well as experience firsthand moms who make health a priority. So, I purchased a FIT4MOM La Porte | Deer Park | Pasadena...more
