Pregnancy Exercise

From the day I started working from home, I felt the needs to exercise my body or at least stretch some muscles. At this stage I am having sleeping difficulties because my belly gets hard as rock and it wakes me up to make a little move or to change position. When I get up, I feel so heavy to walk whenever I need to go to my favorite place – the bathroom. J

Some of the exercises pregnant women can do are walking, swimming, stretching, squatting or even dancing. Just make sure you have to consult your doctor first before doing these exercises because there are other pregnant women with complications and thus they should just stay in bed and avoid too many movements for weeks or so.

For me, I go to you tube and look for safe warm up and yoga exercise which I do regularly to work out my body. Here are two videos that I recommend:

I also spend some time walking as advised by my doctor so the baby drops and then cervix starts to dilate (hopefully).

Having a regular exercise while pregnant prepares the body for easy labor and giving birth. It also helps pregnant women handle back ache, fatigue or even constipation with comfort. As for me, the feeling of being relaxed and energized after doing an exercise is a sort of relief from the heaviness and tiredness that I am bearing for months.
