Exercise is good for you and your growing baby. Just be sure that you get the go-ahead from your health care provider. Exercise can lift your mood, relieve your aching back, increase blood flow and improve your sleep. It doesn't matter how much time you spend exercising... a few minutes each day can make a difference.
How can you add exercise to your daily routine? Wake up 10 minutes earlier and take a walk outside. When you go shopping, park away from the entrance. Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
On page 96 & 97 of your Baby Basics book, you will find some simple exercises to get you started. Why not ask your healthcare provider this week if you can start an exercise program?
