Is Aerobics Okay When Trying To Get Pregnant?

If you're trying to get pregnant, continuing your regular fitness routine should be fine. The rule of thumb is to maintain the same level of exercise you have been doing all along if you take an aerobics class three times a week there's no reason why you need to stop. There is no evidence that doing aerobics will hinder your odds of conceiving, as long as you aren't over-exercising.

Remember to start off slowly. If you are easing your way into an exercise program, start with five or ten minutes three times a week. Step aerobics can be a great way to get in shape at your own pace, as you can alter the routines to be as simple or complicated as you like. Gradually increase your workouts until you're doing aerobics for 30 minutes three times per week.

You shouldn't do any type of aerobics that will stress your body pushing yourself to the limit each time and feeling exhausted after every workout can harm your chances of conceiving. Women who have high levels of stress often have problems getting pregnant, so stay at a comfortable level of physical activity.

Aerobics get your heart rate up and burn a great deal of fat, so they can be an ideal way to get your cardio workout while maintaining a healthy weight. However, if you lose too much body fat, especially in a short period of time, you may suffer from very irregular periods. In some women, ovulation stops altogether, so make sure you aren't losing too much weight too fast or it may decrease your fertility.

Water Aerobics

Water aerobics are a fantastic way for pregnant women to not only keep fit during pregnancy, but to increase strength and relieve pregnancy symptoms. A prenatal water aerobics class is often offered at your local pool or community center, and the instructor is trained in specialized pregnancy exercises that are safe for pregnancy. More and more pregnant women are discovering the benefits of prenatal water aerobics, and it's become a very common way to stay in shape during pregnancy.

One of the most popular reasons for water aerobics during pregnancy is the lightness you'll feel in the water if you weigh 150 pounds; it feels more like 15 in the pool. This eases the weight of the baby on your body, and helps treat backaches and pain. It also lets you move around like you can't outside of the pool. Unlike other forms of exercise, your bones and joints won't be strained during water aerobics.

Other health benefits are keeping stomach muscles strong, easing swelling and helping prevent spider veins on legs. Many women find water aerobics relieves morning sickness, and increases energy. There are emotional benefits as well. Low impact aerobic exercise like water aerobics can help relieve anxiety and make you feel calmer during pregnancy. You'll feel more flexible, and tight joints and muscles will be more relaxed. If you're having trouble sleeping, water aerobics can help with that as well.

Some studies have even shown that women who did water aerobics while pregnant had a much easier time during labor and delivery. Muscles that have been stretched are much more prepared for the physical strain of delivery, and women find that they recover after delivery much faster if they've had a good prenatal exercise routine.

Each trimester of pregnancy has different water aerobics for women to do, which lessen in movement the more pregnant you are. As you enter your second and third trimester, the exe...
