During pregnancy or not, it always important to stay fit and healthy.
Keeping a great promise to yourself to stay active throughout your pregnancy, could actually make things worse if you are doing the following:
The DO NOT pregnancy exercise list:
You will most probably gain about 25-35 pounds throughout your pregnancy. This can be emotionally and not forgetting physically difficult for you but save the weight loss for after giving birth. Eat a healthy diet…. Gaining weight during pregnancy is a sign of your baby’s good health.
Never take part in contact sports even in the early stages of your pregnancy, a simple knock or fall can cause a massive amount of complications.
If you like to ride a bike, for example, from 12 weeks you should be consulting with your doctor if this is safe for yourself and the baby. You may have good balance skill but you also have a bump to balance too. This could cause instability therefor causing a fall.
