If you aren’t considered “at risk” for a complicated delivery, chances are that your obstetrician or midwife has told you exercising while pregnant is the healthy thing to do. Now, you might not actually feel like working up a sweat once you’re deep into the first trimester and plagued by fatigue, nausea and other fun things—but exercise might make you feel better, believe it or not! (Personally, the days the Morning Sickness Fairy seemed to forget about me were always days I went for a run or did some cardio at the gym.) Plus, exercise during pregnancy can prevent excess weight gain and help treat or prevent gestational diabetes.
When you’re pregnant, suddenly everything in life is about the baby. You probably used to eat foods that you liked. Now, what you’re eating is “womb service” for that little growing sprout, so you choose your foods with care. (Or perhaps you just choose cheese fries—we won’t judge.)
Sleeping isn’t just about recovering from a long day—now it’s about getting enough zzz’s to grow a healthy baby (and perhaps experiencing some bizarre dreams…I can’t be the only one who dreamed she gave birth to a maimed Cabbage Patch Doll.)
