Q:"Should I Exercise While Pregnant?"
A: This is a great question that you should talk to your OB-GYN about. The majority of women are able to exercise safely and effectively throughout their pregnancy. However, in the case of a high risk pregnancy or complications, your doctor may advise you to stop exercising - either for a period of time or for the duration of your pregnancy. But for women experiencing a normal pregnancy, exercising can be one of the best things you do during these 9 months!
Exercise is so important during pregnancy because right after delivery, when you are at your weakest physically, you are asked to care for another human being - and you want to be ready for that! Staying fit helps you to go STRONG into the second act of motherhood. Exercise can also help decrease or prevent:
Excessive weight gain and postpartum weight retention
High blood pressure
Maternal discomforts (nausea, leg cramps, back pain, constipation, swelling, depression, etc)
