Tips to help you exercise safely and sensibly during pregnancy

Here are a points about exercising safely and sensibly during pregnancy:

  • Avoid overheating
  • Eat before and after exercise, (a snack, not a 3 course meal) around an hour either side should do it
  • Wear a good bra and trainers when you are working out
  • Be aware of running conditions – look after your personal safety and avoid rough or hilly terrain
  • Avoid laying on your back or front for extended periods after trimester 1
  • Avoid plyometric or very high intensity moves (remember the talk test; you should be able to hold a conversation while exercising)
  • Avoid twisting, turning and fancy footwork later in your pregnancy
  • Steer clear of contact sports
  • It’s complete nonsense that you shouldn’t lift your arms above your head in pregnancy

Don’t worry too much. You need to see an ob/gyn and they could address your crencons. My baby’s were veru different form each other. My daughter was a light, whooshy feeling. I was sometimes breathless because I think she liked to kick me in my diaphragm but I didn’t feel or see her much. I only felt big kicks in my last month or so and they even stopped right b4 I went into labour. SHe is now 9 and fabulous. My son felt like a big brick inside me nearly the entire time.


You are right. Every woman and every pregnancy is different. Lucie x
