BE AN SUPER-FIT MOM AFTER YOUR PREGNANCY
It is amazing what a woman’s body can do during and after pregnancy. We sometimes amaze ourselves. That includes maintaining our shape during pregnancy for some and/or getting it back after pregnancy. Every pregnancy is different because everyone is different. How we snap back as some would say after pregnancy depends on how we take care of our body during and after. I am a proud mother of two wonderful little boys and both of my pregnancies were completely different.
My first pregnancy; I exercised during and after my pregnancy. I researched what types of workouts would be good while pregnant. I took the information that I found and consulted with my doctors to see if it would be ok for my baby and I. My doctors gave me all the information I needed to choose what was okay to do while pregnant. My first pregnancy it was easy getting back to my normal size. My second pregnancy not so much…
It is also important so you can have the energy for your bundle of joy. Eating healthy and staying hydrated goes hand in hand.
I worked out for a little bit with my second pregnancy but it wasn’t long before I was put on bed rest. After I had my second son I waited till I got the okay from my doctor to work out again. Listed below are a few of the things I did during and after my pregnancy:
- Eat Healthily (If pregnant do not forget your Folic Acid)
- Drink lots of Water
- Workout ( Cardio, Pilates and/ or Yoga)
Eating healthy is important so your body can get all the nutrients it needs. It is also important so you can have the energy for your bundle of joy. Eating healthy and staying hydrated goes hand in hand. Drinking water keeps your body hydrated. Which is very important when you are working out. There are a lot of pregnancy ( Prenatal & Postnatal ) videos that you can do from the beginning to the end of your pregnancy. One of my favorite videos is “Lindsay Brin’s Complete Pregnancy Fitness Program.” This one collection has everything that you need for the beginning to the end of your pregnancy. If you are a beginner I recommend you talk to your doctor before doing any exercise during and after pregnancy. Take it slow until you are comfortable doing the workout. Most importantly enjoy your beautiful kid(s), have fun and be safe!
