A Guide to Your Fittest Pregnancy

A Guide to Your Fittest Pregnancy

It wasn’t that long ago that pregnant women were expected to take it easy and spend nine months putting their feet up. While pregnant women definitely need to rest, they can also benefit from regular exercise. Exercise during pregnancy helps with a myriad of pregnancy symptoms, assists in maintaining strength, prepares women for the physical demand of childbirth (they don’t call it labor for nothing) and helps women recover faster. It also helps regulate weight gain and provides benefits for the baby. A fit mama is a healthy mama!

I’ve tried to stay as healthy as possible during my pregnancy. My philosophy was to exercise if it felt good and eat healthy to nourish the baby. I have a great round-up today of all the things that have helped me have a fit pregnancy. I hope these resources will help you too!  Check out my Guide to Your Fittest Pregnancy!

    This is truly such a great resource for pregnant, fit women! I had such a hard time finding stuff like this when I was pregnant with the boys – it was completely frustrating! You’ve done a great job maintaining your fitness over the duration of your pregnancy, which is no easy task. That little boys is going to come out swinging!!!

    Like Allie said, you did an incredible job searching out lots of great workouts while pregnant. I just ran and taught an aerobics class with some elliptical thrown in.

    This is great! I’m just at the end of my first trimester and looking to change things up a bit now that I’m feeling better.

    I freaking love this! I’m a farrrr ways away from pregnancy but I’m so happy I live in a day and age where women aren’t expected to lay in bed and “take it easy” the whole time. I love seeing pregnant women kicking butt at workouts! It’s so inspirational. Plus it probably makes all the babies inherently want to be fitness-obsessed too 🙂 that’s the hope, right?

    As always, you’re an inspiration. 🙂 And I really do think that a lot of women forget about how hard labour is! I mean, we hear all about the pain aspect of it, but it’s hard work. I’ve seen my fair share of deliveries, and a lot of the time, the women are exhausted and some have a hard time pushing. Exercise can definitely help.
