If you\’re pregnant or think you might be, and you don\’t know what will happen to you if you exercise, here are the main effects that physical exercise will have on your baby during your pregnancy:
1- The blood flow to your uterus will normally not be cut off when you exercise.
2- When you engage in physical activity, your body temperature will increase somewhat, and so will your baby\’s, but this will not be harmful.
3- Even though blood flow to your uterus decreases somewhat and the glucose absorbed by your uterus increases during exercise, your fetus\’s metabolism is not affected. It simply means that your baby can take advantage of this energy, so don\’t deprive yourself of the opportunity to exercise.
So yes, you can engage in moderate exercise during your pregnancy. But since every woman is different, if you\’re pregnant and would like to exercise, you should talk to your obstetrician beforehand.
