Fitting Exercise into Your Busy Pregnancy Schedule

Pregnancy is an exciting time, filled with anticipation and preparation for the arrival of your little one. However, it can also be a period where your schedule seems busier than ever, making it challenging to find time for exercise. In Australia, where the great outdoors beckons, incorporating physical activity into your pregnancy routine is essential for your well-being and that of your baby.

 The Benefits of Staying Active

Exercise during pregnancy offers numerous benefits, including improved mood, better sleep, and reduced risk of gestational diabetes and hypertension. It can also help you maintain a healthy weight, reduce back pain, and potentially lead to a smoother delivery.


Tips for Incorporating Exercise into Your Busy Routine:

  • Schedule It: Treat exercise like any other important appointment. Block out time in your calendar for a walk, swim, or prenatal yoga class.
  • Find a time that works for you and your energy levels. Pregnancy comes with waves of energy and waves of fatigue. Try and fit your workout into times where you usually have more energy. Remember this is likely to change throughout the pregnancy journey.
  • Keep It Simple: You don’t need a gym membership to stay active. A brisk walk in your local park or a short swim can do wonders for your fitness and mental health.
  • Involve Your Support System: Exercise can be more enjoyable when you have company. Join a prenatal exercise class or recruit a friend for a walk. It’s a great way to stay motivated and connect with others.
  • Listen to Your Body: Pregnancy is not the time to push your limits. Opt for moderate-intensity activities and avoid anything that feels uncomfortable.
  • Stay Hydrated and Nourished: Always carry a water bottle and have a healthy snack before and after your workout.

By prioritising exercise and integrating it into your daily routine, you can navigate your pregnancy with greater energy and vitality. Remember, every step counts towards a healthier pregnancy and a stronger you!
