As of late, I’ve made a concious effort to beef up my workout routine. I’ve even gone as far as to hire a personal trainer.
Why? According to my doula and midwife, it helps with the labor and healing process after having the baby.
I guess it helps to have some of the coolest Nike gear from your closest gal pal!
Although I ran track for 13 years, I’m very careful and exercise strong wisdom when hitting the weights. My pregnancy experience has been pretty breezy. However, with the occassional tiredness from time-to-time, working out definitely gifts me a boost.
If working out isn’t your thing, don’t feel pressured. Try to think about simple stuff like 20 squats a day, kegels, or sitting on a medicine ball for an hour (great for the back and tummy muscles).
