Hi, welcome to baby belly fitness, my name is Kelly McBride with babyssentials.com. Today, we’re talking about exercise guidelines for first trimester moms with morning sickness. So newly pregnant moms often find it challenging to strike a balance between their existing exercise routine and their rapidly changing body. Now, morning sickness is a common symptom that you might be feeling during pregnancy and symptoms such as nausea, fatigue and even dizziness might make you feel like you don’t want to get up and move. But exercise is exactly what you should be doing. So her I have some tips for moms who are in their trimester but experiencing some morning sickness. One of the first things that you should remember to do is to eat before you exercise. Don’t exercise on an empty stomach and be sure to drink plenty of water and if you’re not quite ready to return to exercise then you can just join in activity like walking. It can be done anywhere at any time and even walking for 10 to 15 minutes can really help alleviate some of the common symptoms of morning sickness. But what if you just don’t have the energy? Well this is a great time for you to practice your breathing techniques. Now, this technique should be practiced throughout the duration of your pregnancy, it would help calm and focus you during pregnancy itself and can even be used as pain management during labor. And last but not least, yoga. There are even some specific yoga poses that you can do to help alleviate some common symptoms of morning sickness. But your goal during your first trimester should be to try to establish a consistent routine and if you’re not able to do that because you are feeling dizzy or nauseous just know that 10 to 15 minutes of exercise can be just as beneficial and effective. But don’t forget moms, keep moving. So I hope somebody’s tips could help, hope you’ve had a great day. This is Kelly McBride with babyssentials.com
