How To Remain Fit In Pregnancy

Introduction And Background When a woman gets pregnant, her body undergoes a lot of changes. Her hormones are altered, there is a new body growing inside of her uterus and she is moody and in constant discomfort as well. On top of that, she also gains weight which is not something that any woman wants for herself. Other than the pregnancy weight, there is no reason one should put on a lot of weight. There are ways in which women can remain fit during a healthy pregnancy and other than the baby fat with no extra excessive weight. Read on further and you’ll find out how.

Enjoy The Water There is a lot of pain in the joints and muscles for some women as their body is slowly getting enlarged from a certain area to accommodate space for the fetus. It is best to join a calm and serene activity such as swimming which will not only provide comfort for the joints but will also calm down the nerves as water can have a very peaceful effect. You can swim about for a bit, no need to do strenuous laps that can get you even more exhausted and irritable.

Do Yoga Many pregnant women join yoga together to do some peaceful body stretches. It also helps to maintain your weight and again, like swimming, keeps you calm and serene. Yoga also removes the constraints on your joints and improves the flexibility of the body, something greatly needed in pregnancy.

Do An Exercise That Makes You Feel Comfortable One cannot really choose a single exercise and tell a pregnant woman to abide by it. Some might prefer a light jog early in the morning while some might want to take a slow walk at night. There are also many who would join classes such as maybe dance class or aerobics class, whatever they find comfortable and suitable. All of these exercises are good for the body and the heart health which will be good for the baby as well.

The Quality, Not The Quantity Another thing that pregnant women need to understand is that the quality of the food they are eating matter more than the quantity. Sometimes a woman thinks that she needs to really eat a huge amount of stuff in order to provide nutrition for the baby. That is not the ideology that should exist. Eat a healthy amount of everything but don’t overdo it. And make sure that you are taking your supplements as advised by the doctor; they are of the utmost importance. A pregnant woman should never diet to stay fit in pregnancy because that might affect the development of the fetus but she shouldnt overeat either.

Take Time Off From Housework There is also another reason why pregnant women gain weight in pregnancy; they stop doing any kind of work. Resume the normal routine that you have and it will also burn calories as well as keep you fit. Working is not going to harm the pregnancy in any manner, as long as you’re not lifting anything heavy or something like that. Enjoy gardening or cooking or even cleaning around the house. Physical activity is only going to do you good, not bad.

However… Pregnant women also need to be careful during their pregnancy as to not put themselves in harm’s way. For instance, if a woman really loves to ride a bike and becomes pregnant, it would be advised not to go around on a bike due to balancing problems or maybe risk of accident. Get an exercise bike and utilize that. It is much safer and you can exercise the way you love. It is also best to avoid strenuous exercises that can tire you out and safer to join something slow and pleasant which can help burn calories and keep you fit but not cause any damage. The body is changing and one needs to accept that so you can’t exactly keep doing everything the same way you could before.

Conclusion Remaining fit in pregnancy is not that difficult if one knows what to do and how to do it. There are so many classes for pregnant women in which they learn how to stay in shape during their pregnancy and to cope with the last few weeks in which there is grave discomfort. A pregnant woman can easily swim, bike on an exercise bike or do aerobics if she wants to. Of course, she should not go weight lifting or try to do any workouts that are really tiring and straining. Other than that, she can eat the normal healthy food that is cooked at home and then stick to her daily routine. A lot of pregnant women  even leave their jobs till the last month.
