The big question that even I did not know when I first got pregnant with Nolan my firstborn, should pregnant women workout?
Well yes, exercise is always good, now how intense you workout just depends on how in shape you are and whether or not you have been working out previous to being pregnant.
Now as most of you know I gained most of my weight when I was pregnant with my first, and looking back I wish I would have done something. I did not work out all the time before and when I got pregnant I was always so tired the last thing that I wanted to do was get out of the house and workout. But looking back I wish I would have.
So if you are pregnant and you are not sure what your body can handle, first ask your doctor if they think it is safe to work out, “more than likely it is” then all you have to do is get to it.
What I would suggest is at minimum to go for a walk a day 15-30 min. If you are already working out, then just continue doing what you are doing. Do not max out or do anything that will cause you to strain, but do not stop just because you are pregnant.
I know my next pregnancy I will be hitting the gym and walking a lot more than I did before.
Happy Pregnancy and enjoy your body and baby
