What symptoms do you have to stop exercise in pregnancy?

Exercise during Pregnancy

Regular exercise during pregnancy can improve your posture and decrease some common discomforts such as backaches and fatigue. Maintaining a regular exercise routine throughout your pregnancy can help you stay healthy and feel your best. There is evidence that physical activity may prevent gestational diabetes, relieve stress, and build more stamina needed for labor and delivery. If you were physically active before your pregnancy, you should be able to continue your activity in moderation. Don’t try to exercise at your former level; instead, do what’s most comfortable for you now.  If you have never exercised regularly before, you can safely begin an exercise program during pregnancy after consulting with your health care provider, but do not try a new, strenuous activity. Walking is considered safe to initiate when pregnant. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise per day on most if not all days of the week, unless you have a medical or pregnancy complication.

In what cases should stop Exercise during Pregnancy?

If woman have a medical problem, such as asthma, heart disease, or diabetes, exercise may not be advisable. Exercise may also be harmful if you have a pregnancy-related condition such as:

  • Bleeding or spotting
  • Low placenta
  • Threatened or recurrent miscarriage
  • Previous premature births or history of early labor
  • Weak cervix

** Talk with your doctor before beginning an exercise program. Your doctor can also give you personal exercise guidelines, based on your medical history.
