While exercising and staying active during pregnancy is often encouraged, it is important that you check with your OBGYN first; especially if you have a high risk pregnancy or have not exercised prior to becoming pregnant.
If you normally get little to no exercise, walking 30 minutes a day is a good way to start getting active. Walking is usually safe because it does not put too much pressure on your joints and still gives you a full body workout.
Exercise helps with:

  • Strengthening and preparing your body for all the changes it will go through (from pregnancy, birthing, to post-pregnancy)
  • Regulating blood sugar
  • Regulating blood pressure
  • Improving mood
  • Easing back pain
  • Strengthening your cardiovascular system (improved circulation helps prevent hemorrhoids, varicose veins, leg cramps, and ankle swelling)
  • Strengthens the respiratory system
  • Improving metabolism and digestion (helps prevent constipation)
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Preparing your body for a quicker recovery after delivery
