The numerous health benefits of exercising throughout your first trimester are well-documented: you'll sleep better, enhance your mood and reduce stress, keep weight off before and after delivery, reduce the risk of a Cesarean section and early birth, and lessen your baby's risk of type II diabetes.

So, here we recommend you 4 exercises to start with during your early stages of pregnancy.

1. Swimming

During pregnancy, the pool is your best buddy. You won't fall over because the water is calming and the activity is low-impact. There's no need to adjust your regimen if you're already practicing a water workout. Avoid over-twisting your center, like with any exercise, and be aware of your energy limits. 

2. Kegels

The muscles that support the abdominal organs, such as the uterus, vagina, bowel, and bladder, are strengthened through kegel exercises, or pelvic floor exercises. These exercises can also help keep bladder function under control and prevent the chance of hemorrhoids. While performing the exercise one must avoid using any muscles in the surrounding area, such as the buttocks, legs, or abs.

3. Stationary cycling or spinning

If you are already used to riding a bicycle, you may continue to do so during your first trimester; but, starting in the second trimester, you should switch to a stationary bike at home or in a spinning class to avoid falling. This advice also applies to other contact sports such as basketball, soccer, surfing, gymnastics, skiing, or mountain biking.

4. Low-intensity weight training

While strength training is generally healthy for pregnant women who follow recommendations, see your doctor before starting a new weight-training programme. When using free weights or weight machines, always move slowly and deliberately. Holding weights over your stomach or lying on your back is not a good idea.

Exercising when pregnant can be beneficial. Active people can usually stay active, while lethargic persons may be encouraged to begin a light exercise plan by their doctor.
