First Trimester: Take Good Care

The first trimester is very important for all expecting mothers. A good start ensures a good progress. During the first trimester of pregnancy, women should have a moderate amount of exercise. A good idea is for the mother-to-be to join pregnancy exercise classes and fitness clubs that have trained instructors for expecting mothers who can provide them with approved programs. Maintaining the exercise program throughout the pregnancy is extremely beneficial as it reduces the risk factor associated with pregnancy.

Women in their first trimester of pregnancy can often find it difficult to strike a balance between their normal, pre-pregnancy routines and their new way of life. This can be very stressful on the mother-to-be. By getting a good amount of exercise, the expecting mom can shed stress and adjust better to her new situation.

The first trimester can also make pregnant mothers experience drastic mood swings. This happens because of the hormonal changes that are taking place in the body. Underr the proper guidance, good exercise routines can make the mother feel better and control these mood swings. Exercising three to four times a week, based on the doctor's recommendation can have a stabilizing effect. Of course, when exercising, be sure to avoid any thing that can cause a miscarriage.

It is not just for expecting mothers but also for the babies born to them that exercise helps. Exercise makes the babies better tolerant to stress and these babies show neurobehavioral maturity. Exercising correctly in the first trimester can make the entire pregnancy a better experience because it helps with labor and a speedy recovery.

However, physical activity like inline skating etc should be given up during pregnancy for fear of damage to the abdominal area. It should be kept in mind that not all aerobic activities have the same value.


Abdominal exercises are a big concern with pregnant mothers. Abdominal exercises can be done during pregnancy. However, doing them without a knowledgeable trainer and the necessary precautions can be very harmful. The increase in your girth can lead to a fall during the exercise routine so exercise with caution. All precautions should be taken against over exertion. The heartbeat during exercise should be 140 beats per minute and not more.
