The first 3 months of pregnancy give you the opportunity to start or to maintain the exercise regime of your choice. Although during the first trimester you may have a greater amount of morning sickness, you still do not have that big belly that makes you heavier and causes your whole body to ache. Whether for you exercise is a daily activity without which you can not survive or something that you have not done since physical education classes at school, there are various exercises that you can choose from that will benefit you and your baby.
Exercises you can keep
If you are already physically active, you should be able to maintain your regular exercises during the first trimester of pregnancy. You can still lie on your back for stretching or yoga positions - something you can not do in your last months of pregnancy, as it can interfere with blood circulation to your baby. Probably the pregnancy has not yet affected your balance, so feel free to practice various things: from dancing buzz to sweating to the beat of older songs. You can also keep jogging or running if you prefer.
Exercises you can start
Regardless of your physical condition, some exercises are safe for everyone and can even improve your mood, your energy level and prevent you from earning more than the recommended 25 to 35 pounds during your pregnancy Without adding stress to your joints or bones, swimming exercises all your muscles. Walking allows you to gradually begin an exercise routine while doing something you already did every day. Riding a bicycle, either around the neighborhood or on a stationary basis, is another safe way to start exercising.
Exercises you should avoid
Some exercises are definitely not good during pregnancy. Avoid any contact sport in which someone can hurt you or your baby with the force of a ball or your own body. Avoid steep surfaces, they increase the risk of hitting someone or something or suffer vertigo by height, decreasing the supply of oxygen to your baby. Avoid gymnastics, water skiing, diving and horseback riding during your pregnancy. The jolts that occur when riding a horse can hurt your baby.
Exercises that you should perform with caution
Even if you only take a brisk walk, you need to take with you something more than your favorite songs stored in your music player. Dress appropriately with a sports bra, loose clothing and athletic shoes that have good traction.Bring a bottle of water to keep you hydrated. Make warm-ups before starting your exercises and take your time to cool off once you have finished. You should not feel excessively hot or fatigued. Heat stroke is especially dangerous in these first 3 months. Your heart rate should stay below 140 beats per minute and your body temperature below 101 degrees Fahrenheit.
