Maintaining a regular but gentle exercise throughout your pregnancy is good and safe for your body and baby. It can improve your posture and decrease some discomforts such as backaches and fatigue.
You can continue your current exercise routine but in lighter impacts and do what's most comfortable for you. You can do aerobics, yoga, walking and swimming.
Deborah Hazeldean from FittaMamma said on how to choose the right workout gear that looks good and able to support your baby:
“Supporting your bump makes a huge difference to your comfort when you exercise,”
“If your bump feels secure, you’ll be able to exercise more comfortably and will feel better about maintaining your exercise routine throughout your pregnancy.
“Leggings that support your lower back will also make a difference, improving your posture and easing lower back ache – they need to be cut high all round your body, rather than simply accommodating the bump. Avoid leggings that fall down or tops that ride up. Do the downward dog test when you try on maternity leggings.”
Here are some of the perfect partner for your workout:
