Pregnancy might seem to be the best time for you to sit back and relax. Feeling “knackered” and exhausted all the time than usual, backache, and swollen ankle are the perfect reasons to stay at ease and slow down lots of physical activities. However, for moms-to-be, a new study finds that exercise throughout your pregnancy can improve your mood and boost your energy levels. Therefore, no more feeling extremely fatigue and goodbye mood swings.

Findings show significant improvements in the moods of the women, as well as reduced levels of fatigue among pregnant mothers. Prenatal exercise for 30 minutes about four times a week will not only benefit you during your pregnancy but it also triggers better postnatal performance of yourself.

Prior research has found that prenatal exercise can help manage pregnancy related musculoskeletal issues, improves sleep, prevents excessive weight gain, strengthens the muscles and boosts up stamina as well as shortens labour. Moderate to intensity exercise three times a week during your second and third trimesters, halves the risk of your newborn being overweight and also makes you weigh lighter than mothers who do not exercise regularly. Still, prior studies have found that between 60 and 75% of pregnant women are inactive.

Additionally, exercise during pregnancy might also reduce the risk of gestational diabetes and pregnancy-related high blood pressure, as well as lessen the symptoms of postpartum depression. In addition, it might reduce the risk that your baby is born significantly larger than average or scientifically called as fetal macrosomia. Furthermore, regular moderate prenatal exercise will prep yourself to delivery later on. It makes perfect sense that the better shape you are in, the stronger you will become at labour and delivery time. Giving birth requires lots of stamina, determination, and focus, thus exercise will help you to face that tough situation at the same time making it much easier and faster than you could ever imagine.

For hot mommas, gaining pregnancy weight might be stressful. However, gaining weight needs no worry if you practice regular exercise during your pregnancy. Your prior body image and weight will soon be gained again. When you have maintained your strength and muscle tone all through your pregnancy, your body will have easier time bouncing back after giving birth. 

Still, before you begin an exercise programme, be sure to talk to your doctor or midwife about any risks with your pregnancy. It is advisable to most pregnant women to do at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise on most days. In fact, light exercise such as walking is a great exercise for beginners who intend to start doing prenatal exercises. Other good choices includes swimming, low impact aerobics, and cycling on a stationary bike.
