How to Exercise During Pregnancy

It's Thursday, which technically means it should be Pinspiration Thursday, but I'm breaking that tradition. Just for today, though. I'm popping in right quick to offer up a link to my guest post over on New Leaf Wellness. If you're an expectant mother, I think you'll find it useful:

I firmly believe that Hannah's pregnancy went so well for me because I worked out from start to finish. Literally, I taught my last class a week before I delivered her. Now, every pregnancy is different and every pregnancy responds differently to exercise, so (at the very least) I hope this guest post inspires you to keep moving throughout your pregnancy.

Movement, great or small, goes a long way. Even if you aren't pregnant.

Question: Moms, how active were you during your pregnancy/pregnancies?

I was working full time during my pregnancy at a pretty stressful job, but I still managed to drag my butt out of bed and get in the gym at least 3 times a week. I mostly swam, but I did some light weight training and walked on the treadmill. I also took walks outside, even though I was very winded. Like you, I worked out the Friday before I gave birth on Monday. I really think that helped me have the strength to deliver (after being in labor for 12 hours and pushing for 3!!!). It also helped me get back in shape after he got here. So, YES, do exercise when you're pregnant, even if it's walking. Anything helps!
