Welcome to MMM
If you are new here and want to know more about it
or want to participate go HERE to find out more!!
So as you all know I am expecting a new little bundle of joy.
So I thought I would turn my own personal MMM posts into a fit and active pregnancy motivation.
Sorry if this will bore you, but its what im going through and I can only blog about what I know!!
SO HERE IT GOES...
SHOULD PREGNANT WOMEN EXERCISES?
Pregnancy is not an illness, we are not to delicate or frail to climb a flight of stairs or to carry a bag of groceries!! Although sometimes the excuse is nice. BUT For a healthy (non high-risk) pregnant woman... moderate physical activity is considered safe and beneficial for not only mothers...but their babies as well...So if your doctor gives you the go ahead and you are perfectly capable of exercise when pregnant DO IT!!!
There are so many health benefits to exercising while pregnant.
You are already going to get fatter and fatter as the months go on...THERE IS NO STOPPING IT...Fat obviously will weigh you down and result in less energy. BUT by exercising you are increasing your daily energy! I totally believe that exercise will help you feel better both physically and mentally. IMPROVE YOUR SLEEPING...Increase endurance (and when labor comes around that will be very nice to have) REDUCE BACKACHES...Help with BLOATING...and many many more...
In later MMM's I will go into more depth about what exercises doctors say are best when pregnant and why...but for now here is a small list
MODERATE WEIGHT TRAINING
It is important to start off slow. Warm ups are always the place to start. You don't want to increase your heart rate to much to fast. Even though you are capable you are still more vulnerable when pregnant so walk before you run and jog slowly in a pool before doing laps.
I hope this post motivates you to be fit and active while pregnant!
