How Important is doing Exercise During Pregnancy..!!

Doing exercises  regularly is good for body but it is more beneficial when you are pregnant. Doctors usually advice to do exercises during the whole pregnancy journey to get a normal and easy delivery.  But in some cases we do hesitate to do exercise in the fear of getting misscarriages or any complications, etc. .

How Important is doing Exercise During Pregnancy..!!

Eating healthy , relaxing properly is important during pregnancy but along with that doing simple exercises regularly is equally important.  If you are a fit person before conceiving, then it is more necessary to continue that even during the 9 months of time. Exercise or yoga during pregnancy keep our body and mind in peace and we feel more energetic than before. . Here I have listed down few benefits of doing exercise during pregnancy..

1 - Boost energy and make you feel active :

During pregnancy we often feel tired and non-enrgetic, but if you are doing exercise regularly for a certain period of time, then you will feel more active than before and it also helps to strengthen the cardiovascular system and keep your mind in happy stage all day long.

2 - Gives good sleep :

During pregnancy another issue happens which is sleeping discomfort.  But with regular exercise and yoga you will get a nice sleep too.  The muscles will relax and becomes flexible with regular exercise which tends to sleep you well.  In the same way if you sleep well, then your mind will be in peace which is very much necessary during pregnancy to avoid the mood swings

3 - Helps to get a natural and easy delivery :

Doctors usually advice to start doing exercise after the first trimester.  Initially you need to start with smaller sessions and then you can increase the session gradually with passing time.  Here we are not exercising to loose weight but to stay active and fit.  Regular exercise will make the lower abdomen muscles flexible and relax which will make the delivery period shorter and easier.  This is something I have experienced on my own during my first pregnancy to be very honest.  Regular exercise also decrease the fear of any last minute complications during pregnancy.



4 - Makes easy to get back in shape :

During pregnancy weight gain is very normal but if you are doing exercises regularly through out the 9months, then it will be easier for you to get back in shape after delivery.

5 - Along with all these, regular exercise helps to relax the muscles of body, reduce backache and body ache , constipation, stress, etc.

Walking is the best exercise as per doctors or health advisers during pregnancy.  Along with that there are certain exercises and prenatal yogasanas which helps you and your body through out the 9 months of pregnancy.

Also one thing to remember that, never do exercise till you feel exhausted or never go breathless too ,this might cause serious issues in pregnancy.  Do make sure to know your limit and have high calorie food in between to get a happy and healthy pregnancy. 😊

Will share few must do exercises and yogasanas according to the trimesters of pregnancy in the next post ,so stay tuned...
