If your pregnancy is normal and risk free, then you can follow a routine exercise program to stay fit for rest of your pregnancy days. In addition to this, regular exercising will also help to control the increase in your body weight. Another important benefit of exercising is that the chance of appearing stretch marks simply reduces to almost zero. Regular exercising reduces the chance of having a cesarean delivery.
It increases your mental stability and builds up confidence, so that you can handle the delivery more easily. But on top of all, you can ensure a problem-free delivery and healthy baby, which is the ultimate desire for every would-be mom. However, you must take permission from your obstetrician to start the exercise regimen. Also, you should perform exercises under the guidance of an expert otherwise you might hurt your baby or make some serious damages to your pregnancy.
However you must be very careful while exercising. If you were already exercising at your pre-conception time, then you must be aware of the restrictions during pregnancy. But women having no previous experience of exercise, might do some mistake unknowingly. Remember to drink fluid frequently before you start the exercise session.
Daily exercising if not possible, you should try to exercise at least 3 times a week. Take rest for few minutes while changing exercises. If you think you are getting exhausted, then you should immediately stop. Also remember never to lift any heavy weight during your pregnancy days for exercise purpose. For your stretching exercises, do not overstretch your body. You must follow all the guidelines of your exercise instructor quite seriously.
If you are interested in playing outdoor games, you can definitely do so, provided your obstetrician permits you. Light outdoor games are not that risky during the mid-term, but you should never try to perform difficult sports like skiing, skating, riding, skateboarding, surfing etc. Particularly, you should avoid the games, where there is a chance of falling down. While attempting any game, check with the game instructor to know whether it is suitable for you at this stage or not.
