Exercising as a lifestyle is a great way to keep fit and healthy.However, for expectant mothers, there are added benefits with regular exercise which will go a long way to ensuring your body is in good shape to carry out your baby to full term.
Over exertion can be detrimental to a pregnant woman's health since blood flow can be diverted from reaching important areas of the body.
Also, an expectant mother's body temperature is naturally raised, so avoiding being over heated is also extremely important.
Drinking lots of fluids before and after exercising is a very good idea. A daily fluid consumption app for your smartphone or other device is very helpful.
Ensure your diet is well balanced and nutritious. Be careful not to over-eat. "Eating for two" does not mean you should eat twice as much!
Immediately take a break once you feel any uneasiness during exercising.
