Are You At Your Optimal Weight For Fertility?
Are You Currently Exercising?
Starting or continuing a regular exercise program before you get pregnant helps prepare your body for the stresses of pregnancy and labor. The level of exercise you can do during pregnancy depends on your health and, in part, on how active you are before you become pregnant.
Most women who exercise before pregnancy can continue to do so during pregnancy. Select exercises that you enjoy and will enable you to meet your goals. If you are not accustomed to being active, you should begin an exercise program gradually. Walking is simple and safe; begin with 15 minutes a day and increase gradually. Always check with your physician before beginning an exercise regime.
