    Your body is not in the same state as it was before you fell pregnant and it needs support. This means you cannot push yourself the way you used to. It is important to listen to your body during this time. If you find yourself incredibly fatigued, more than you would have thought, stop. If you find yourself feeling dizzy, stop. If there is immense pain in your back or pelvis, stop. If you find yourself out of breath often, stop. Your body is sending you these messages for a reason. Ultimately it’s all about keeping the baby and you happy and healthy. If you have asthma, diabetes or heart disease, it is advised that you do not exercise while you are pregnant. If you are pregnant and want advice from an experienced obstetrician, get in contact today.
