Thank you so much sharing this. I was very nervous about whether or not exercising will affect my child, being a newly pregnant woman. Now I think I continue with yoga.

You are right!!Walking is one of the best cardiovascular exercises during pregnancy. It is a safe exercise to be done throughout nine months of pregnancy after the consultation with the doctor but don’t let morning sickness prevent you from walking.
Almost about 80% of pregnant women suffer from morning sickness and avoid treatment for morning sickness as it may harm the unborn child. Fortunately, PSI wrist bands provide a natural way to relieve morning sickness without taking drugs. It works on the principle of acupressure and applies continuous pressure on the P6 (or Nei-Kuan) point on each wrist.A recent study in America found that 70% of women who wore PSI wrist bands got relief from morning sickness. Try using PSI wrist bands for getting relief from morning sickness.

Yes! I have a positive attitude to fitness and yoga during pregnancy! I also wanted to ask about leaving the skin of the body during pregnancy. What do you use for stretch marks? I buy oils To moisturize the skin of any type is an excellent tool! It can be coconut, kako, mango or chocolate for anti-cellulite wrapping

I'm just 8 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy, but with my first I had just started CrossFit about 6 months prior so I was able to continue with my workouts and just scaled back significantly. This time around I'm 9 years into CF, so I doubt I will have to scale back quite as much. So far not a whole lot has changed, as it's still really early in the Pg, but my midwife said as long as I go more with a "maintenance" than aiming to set personal records for myself, I should be fine.

I remember the period when I was pregnant and it was very terrible because I could not even play sports. I had a wide variety of exercise machines at home, but I could not use them due to the fact that I was not allowed to exercise. So I wanted to keep in shape. and I was advised to use a stepper trainer. I found a huge number of reviews at and in the end I bought one of the models and I realized that it was super effective and maximum energy-consuming trainer. So I really recommend it.

Exercise during pregnancy? Why not? I was told to do what I did before I was pregnant. I did weights, jogging, isometric, bicycling, swimming, yoga, aerobic, calisthenics, everything!

Yes, everything except sky diving and skiing.
