|Sometimes, in their desire to get pregnant, women neglect the exercise aspect of keeping fit. They feel that exercising may bring unnecessary strain on their bodies while they strive to get pregnant. And also there is a fear that if you are already pregnant and you are still not aware of it, you might risk getting your unborn baby aborted with all the physical activities that you engage in.
But these are actually just fitness myths. The womens fitness should always be maintained with proper diet and ample exercise movements. If you are indeed considering having a baby, maybe you can just engage in less strenuous activities but you should not totally neglect your fitness. And many people have found out that the fitter they are, they more fertile they become because their body processes are working well.
Many reading materials on womens health and pregnancy information would even advice mothers and mothers to be to get some low impact exercise in order to keep the body healthy and all the processes working while on the way. Unless ordered by the doctor because of a medical complication, you should continue exercising until you give birth. But of course the exercises should be limited according to what you can do, considering that your tummy will get very big as you near your due date. We just cannot blame those who are recommended to go on bed rest because exercise will just put their child at risk.
According to many doctors who give pregnancy advice, the best low impact exercise would be walking. It should be coupled with simple upper body exercises like stretching and arm circling in order to promote proper circulation of the upper body. Thirty minutes a day would do to make the body healthy and strong. If women will just follow this, they will really have a healthy pregnancy.
