So, You Made The Most of Quarantine,and Now You're Pregnant. Congratulations! Let's Exercise.
Much to her shock, one of my friends is pregnant. Congratulations, right?! She's quite a beautiful girl, and she has always taken pride in her appearance, looking awesome no matter which outfit of the day she's rocking. She often tells me that in order to feel her best self, she needs to look her best self. It may not seem like much, but it made her feel more powerful in a world where we are judged on a daily basis from which car we drive to which job we choose. Now, that she is pregnant, she worries about her body shape, and has already begun looking for a pregnancy exercise video.
No matter what you were before you got pregnant or what you will be afterwards, you have to exercise when you are expecting. This not only helps keep weight gain at bay, it helps make going through labor a little easier. One of the best ways to make sure you get what you need is to use a pregnancy exercise video. These are made especially for women who are expecting. The exercises are meant to be safe and easy to do.
You may want to talk to your doctor before you begin using a pregnancy exercise video, however, because certain women may not be able to exercise while pregnant. Most women can, but certain women have complications that can be made worse with exercise. This is something that you should talk to your doctor about, and always be sure to follow his or her advice, and check in if something seems to be off. Not all women can do a pregnancy exercise video safely.
If you want to get exercise but you aren't sure what you want to do, talk to your doctor about alternatives. You don't have to use a pregnancy exercise video if you don't think that will be something you will enjoy. Swimming is a great way to exercise while pregnant, as it puts very little stress on the body. Walking may also be a great alternative, and is something you can do anywhere at anytime as long as you don't have to walk through snow or ice. Your doctor can give you a list of things you can and should not do. It isn't important which one you choose, it is just important that you do something.
Stay Breezy, Breezers!
