Every single pregnant woman should exercise throughout her entire pregnancy. I wonder if women understand all the benefits of exercising during pregnancy. If they did, I think more women would exercise while pregnant. But anyhow, I know that some women are just afraid and they don’t know what exercises they can do while they are pregnant. So today, I am going to give you a few pregnancy exercises that you can do while pregnant that will help you keep your hips, thighs and butt in shape. I know this is the biggest concern for us women as there is nothing we can do about our hips widening. But we can do something about our thighs expanding and our booties growing. Make sure to do these exercises and you will keep you lower body in check during pregnancy.
I also want to encourage you to make healthy choices when eating.
I know you are probably a little frustrated like most pregnant women, because your OB hasn’t educated you much on Pregnancy Nutrition.
It’s actually quite frustrating for me…….
Aside from giving you a list of foods you should NOT eat, and weighing you in every week, that is pretty much it. And it’s insane because what you eat doesn’t just affect YOU! It affects the baby as well.
Its very easy to say “you have to slow down with your weight gain”, but not give you any tools or resources to help you.
But you have to control what you eat and not use this pregnancy as an excuse to “Eat For 2”. I mean you don’t by any means have to diet. I certainly didn’t and I did allow myself some splurges. I would eat a bagel a week which I normally don’t when I’m not pregnant, I usually stick to oatmeal which I love. But you just have to make GOOD CHOICES. You should want to anyways because everything you are eating now is affecting your little baby. So make good choices girlfriend.
