Exercising during pregnancy

Physical exercise is bodily activity that improves or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness. This also applies to pregnant women. There a lots of questions that come to mind when thinking about exercising during pregnancy. here are some benefits that make exercising during pregnancy worthwhile.

Exercising makes you physically fit.
Pregnancy drains your energy, but regular exercise can help you get through your daily tasks or cope with a demanding schedule more easily. That's because exercise strengthens your cardiovascular system, so you don't tire as easily and you have the energy to ride out stressful times. And with strong, toned muscles, you don't get tired easily when doing  any activity, whether it's shopping or other regular routines.
Relieves discomfort associated with pregnancy.
Doing stretches and yoga regularly eases back pain, walking improves your circulation, makes your body cope better with the aches and pains pregnant women experience and swimming can strengthen your abdominal muscles.

Relives fatigue
many women during first-trimester and some during the last trimester experience fatigue or low energy levels.exercising regularly but not till you are exhausted can help relieve fatigue. just a walk can do even more than you expect.

Makes you sleep well.
As your stomach protrudes, finding a comfortable sleeping position can be a real challenge. But exercise can tire you out enough to make you have a more restful sleep.

Speeds up post-delivery recovery.
The more you increase your pregnancy fitness, the faster you'll recover physically after childbirth, the more fit you'll be after delivery.

Exercising during pregnancy also helps relieve your mood.

Note though: you should avoid

Activities where falling is more likely.
Activities that require extensive jumping, hopping, skipping, or bouncing.
Holding your breath for an extended period of time.
