During the first trimester, you can generally continue with your usual exercises, but pregnancy symptoms may affect your ability to work out. It's important to listen to your body and adapt accordingly. Additionally, consider incorporating specific exercises into your routine if you haven't already.
In the second trimester, morning sickness and fatigue should improve, but if they persist, be gentle with yourself as they may subside soon. In this stage, it's advisable to avoid jumping, exercises that challenge balance, and twisting movements. You can generally continue with the exercises mentioned earlier during this trimester.
In the third trimester, energy levels often decrease, so it's crucial to exercise when you feel energized. Due to your growing belly, many exercises become challenging. Walking and swimming are excellent options during this stage, aiming for at least 150 minutes of exercise per week. You can also continue with the exercises from the second trimester and the stretching routine if it's comfortable and approved by your doctor.
