Staying active during pregnancy will help prevent prenatal aches and pains and will also help you sleep better. Tone up with light weights and high repetitions to prepare your body for a demanding new baby.
Consume small, balanced meals that are rich in folate throughout the day, and increase your
daily caloric intake by around 300 calories.
Drinking water is important during pregnancy, especially if you’re working out.Listen to your body and drink a minimum of eight glasses per day.
4.Embrace your curves.
Get comfortable gym clothes that show off your bump. Wearing an oversized T-shirt will only make you feel, well, oversized.
5.Take time out for yourself.
When you feel stressed, take five and breathe in deeply. Stretching is the perfect way to unwind.
