Can You Workout While Pregnant?

In case you missed the quick announcement video I made on youtube – I am pregnant again! We are about 11 weeks right now, and I have been dealing with quite a bit of nausea, making it a bit more difficult to follow my diet and exercise plan exactly as I would like to – but I am still getting in as much as possible!

Can You Workout While Pregnant?

Since this is my third pregnancy, I am much more relaxed around what is going on inside my body. But if you are a first time mom-to-be, this whole pregnancy thing can be pretty scary. There’s a whole lot of advice about what you should be avoiding during your pregnancy, so much so that it sometimes seems like you shouldn’t do ANYTHING while you are pregnant… including workout!

However, I would like to put your mind at ease a bit. Not only is it OK to workout during pregnancy, it is actually something I HIGHLY recommend you get in as often as feels good to you during your pregnancy and beyond. Not only will it keep you in better shape through your pregnancy, making post-baby weight loss quicker and easier, it may also help to make your labor easier and quicker!

You can check out the video below I made about this topic, and once you are comfortable about working out during your pregnancy, you can check out the next video showing you one of my first workouts I did after finding out I was pregnant (NOTE: If you are not already accustomed to doing HIIT workouts and you are pregnant, I would suggest starting off with something less intense).

 

Lots of love,

Jenni B
