~Exercise during Pregnancy~

  • 4 Replies

 Before you begin an exercise program, talk to your doctor about getting physically active during your pregnancy. As long as you don’t have any pregnancy-related problems, your doctor probably will encourage you to be physically active.

Aim for 2 hours and 30 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activities.

  • If you weren’t physically active before, start slowly. Spread your physical activity out over the week.
  • Choose activities that make your heart beat faster, like walking fast, dancing or raking leaves. You should still be able to talk during these activities.
  • Drink extra water before, during and after your workout.
  • Take a break if you get short of breath or feel uncomfortable.
