Mother’s Health During Pregnancy Week 10Brought to you by
Are you up and moving? As you may be experiencing morning sickness, midday sickness, nighttime sickness, or fatigue, it might be easy to forget that, depending on your level of fitness, you can most likely participate in a wide range of physical activities during your pregnancy. Swimming is an excellent option. No access to a pool? Don't worry about it; walking is a great option, too. Exercise can help you build muscle tone, strength, and endurance, which can help you carry the weight you are about to gain and help prepare you for labor.
Not sure about exercise? If you have any doubts or questions about exercising during your pregnancy, be sure to check with your physician. Your doctor may even be able to help you decide on the type, and level, of exercise that is right for you.
Noticing your veins more? Your blood volume increases 40 to 50 percent during your pregnancy, so if you notice your veins more in your breasts, legs, and stomach, don’t worry!
