Modify Your Exercise Routine


If you've been exercising regularly throughout your first trimester and still have the OK from your doctor, continuing your routine can help you manage symptoms, make you feel better physically and emotionally, and help make the pain and stress of labor a little easier to handle. You already know the safety precautions you need to take, so now it's time to modify your routine to accommodate your changing body. As your pregnancy continues to progress, you'll likely need to dial the intensity and frequency of your workouts back. Try this second trimester workout as a starting point, and look for low-impact ways to exercise, like swimming or walking. Creating a plan that takes your needs into account will help you continue to exercise safely for the duration of your pregnancy, or until your doctor advises you to stop.
