– Being pregnant doesn’t necessarily mean getting fat. And it doesn’t have to mean being tired all the time. The way you feel (terrific or fatigued) and the way you look during pregnancy and as a new mother depends on actions you take during pregnancy regarding diet and exercise.
– By eating a wide variety of wholesome food and by exercising on a regular basis, you can maintain or improve on your fitness and health during this time of extra demands on your body.
– Decide how you want to look and feel after delivery. Then accept the challenge of making necessary changes in eating and exercise to achieve that goal. Sensible eating and regular exercise go hand in hand. Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you’re fragile.
– Look at your schedule and try to give your exercise time top priority. Consider planning your day around your exercise program, not the other way round.
– Before starting any exercise program, you should consult with your doctor and make sure that the exercise programs are right for you.
– Programmes that will keep you looking and feeling great through your pregnancy include:
– Starting a prenatal exercise programme
During pregnancy, your body undergoes significant changes. Before beginning an exercise program, it is important to understand how to modify an existing exercise routine or start a new one safely.
– Prenatal exercise safety
While exercise is important during pregnancy, there are many safety concerns that you will have to keep in mind. It is important to pay close attention to what you eat, what you wear, and the exercises you do.
– Aerobic exercises during pregnancy
Building up and maintaining cardiovascular endurance is essential for the pregnant woman. She must, however, avoid unnecessary strain.
– Strength-Training exercise during pregnancy
Developing muscle tone is important not only for looking and feeling good, but also for easing the strain of labor and delivery. These exercises build muscles that will help you through the birth process.
