Improved Mood: A pregnant woman usually feels pains at certain periods; these pains can initiate a change of mood from good to bad.
Pregnancy also eats up your energy and can make you feel tired and exhausted.
So it is always a good idea to engage in something you love doing whenever you can to keep your mind and body busy or relaxed.
Exercise can serve in this capacity by making you feel better and more restful at nights while you sleep.
This is because exercise helps in releasing chemical compounds known as “endorphins” which binds to pain receptors and blocks off pain sensations.
Excessive Weight: It is obvious that women gain weight during pregnancy and you do not want to look all fat and plumy after the birth of just one child.
You can prevent your body from gaining excess weight during pregnancy by doing exercises.
Exercise will also help your body prepare well for the baby’s arrival.
Most women worry about getting back to their former shape after delivery, exercises can help you get back in shape because you have less fat to lose if you exercise your body during pregnancy.
Maintenance of the Body and Muscles: Exercise can help you maintain your body and muscles because it increases blood circulation and it keeps the blood fresh.
When your muscles are in proper shape, delivery becomes easier, faster, and smoother.
Exercise also reduces the aching of the back muscles as the pregnancy becomes advanced and as you add weight.
Proper Functioning of the Heart: Exercise keeps the heart and lungs functioning properly and it is also good for general fitness.
You should remember that when the heart is good and in proper shape, the body feels great.
- Body Metabolism: Exercising the body aids digestion and helps to avoid constipation.
