The first trimester of your pregnancy is the most critical and regular exercise can reduce the risk factors associated with pregnancy not to mention fighting the uncomfortable side effects like morning sickness and fatigue. But take it easy during the first three months gently easing your way into a regular fitness routine. The key during this initial stage in your pregnancy is to focus on developing pelvic strength through the following exercises:
- Pelvic Tilts: Stand straight with your back to the wall and relax your spine. Breath in deeply while pressing the small of your back against the wall. Exhale slowly and repeat.
- Kegals: Contract the muscles at the base of the pelvis, by imagining that you are trying to stop the flow of urine, and then relax and repeat several times.
