Ab exercise first trimester

Common Questions and Answers about Ab exercise first trimester


Avatar n tn I did this all with my second and it was great I stopped the ab exercises and boxing in my third trimester as it became uncomfortable
Avatar f tn Working out is a good thing and perfectly safe in the first trimester . I have found that it helps calm down the morning sickness and helps with my fatigue levels. I have been doing a low key workout which includes Ab work, lower back exercises, glute work and Kegel exercises. I have found some great videos on YouTube for 1st trimester workouts. Pilates and pre-natal Yoga come highly recommended.
395769 tn?1318449682 I know nothing about being high risk or having a blighted ovum..sorry. I only know what my dr. told me & this is my first pregnancy and im not high risk. I did a lot of ab exercise pre-pregancy but once I found out I stopped just bc it feel too weird for me. Like I was crushing the baby. But if you know its safe I'd say go for it. Im too far past that pt now. I usually just swim for 45 mins a couple times a week & take a pilates class.
10165853 tn?1456333837 Well its always good to ask your doctor first if you arent use to working out. But im 9 weeks almpst and i still hit the gym, walk, hike, hiking is my favorite. I also work out at home since i have 2 kids i cant always go out to do it. I actually downloaded a pregnancy work out app for free and it has 20 minute workouts for 1st 2nd and 3rd trimester.
384150 tn?1399904816 m getting so much CONFLICTING advice.....can I do ab work in first trimester? Can I go running? What about overheating? Sorry. Very long response on my part but I didn't answer your question.
Avatar f tn You can do what you were doing before you got pregnant. Just know that first trimester it is extremely common to be fatigued, so if you are really exhausted take it easy. Just make sure you aren't going anaerobic - make sure you can talk without being too short on breath. And you stay hydrated. If something is uncomfortable, don't do it.
Avatar f tn I was wondering the same thing when I became ppregnant, what I found out is during the first trimester sit ups are ok, but after the first trimester no exercise that has you on ur back is safe. Keeping ur abs in shape in pregnancy is good cuz it helps get everything back to normal after birth.
10028419 tn?1416841704 I walk occasionally now but would like to start exercising again to help with weight gain and labor! Any one else exercise? I need tips on whats safe and what I should be doing!
Avatar n tn But you shouldnt be laying on your back after around the 2nd trimester anyway. Some suggestions are on the exercise ball or plank holds because it strengthenes your core. But you have to keep it mild, no straining. Anytime you feel strained, stop. Those ab ligaments are easy to pull while you have the relaxin hormones and closer to the end you definitely want to lay off the ab workouts. On the plus side, you can start again right after a natural birth, but not a c section.
Avatar f tn My stomach has been feeling sore (muscle wise -- like after an ab workout) I normally like to do bridges (lay on back then raise self up so only feel and hands are on the floor, stomach is in air) to relieve this type of pain, is it okay to do this during the first trimester?
Avatar f tn I am about 7 weeks preg. New mom, is it ok to do situps??
Avatar f tn Women (depending on height) should eat 1900 - 2500 calories a day. During 1st trimester add 200, during third trimester add 300. I'm 6ft, 175 lbs & I eat 2200 calories a day, so while pregnant I try to eat 2400.. it doesn't happen every day but that's okay so long as I'm eating healthy things, nutrients the baby needs. 75-100g of protein a day, folic acid, calcium, etc. I lost 3 lbs my first trimester & baby is big - growing ahead of schedule.
Avatar f tn I do believe its not recommended until the first trimester is over unless its just walking but u want to check with your doctor first.
Avatar f tn Im starting to run/walk and i also want to start doing ab workouts as well as squats, so basically i just want to know if should do the workouts before or after running/walking?. .. or does it even matter?
Avatar f tn The key is to listen to your body and stop if you feel any pain. I ran until about 30 weeks and did sit ups through the first trimester and feel like that has been a large part of my complication free pregnancy (so far at least). I am 38Wks+2.
Avatar f tn During the first trimester you can do anything you did before you were pregnant. 2nd trimester you can do almost everything the same just lighten the load and if you feel really tired or like you just did way to much then do less.
10185128 tn?1410802667 Is anyone sees waiting until after the first trimester to share the news with friends and family?
Avatar f tn I usually stop situps and hard ab workouts at the 2nd semester. You want those muscles strong, but not inflamed. Light plank holds and exercise ball workouts are good. Plus I find its really easy to oull an ab with all the relaxin and round ligament pain. Let you abs relax drink something with some sugar and see if he gets moving around again.
Avatar f tn Walking is good but tbh i would personally take it easy you dont want to over do it in first trimester as its a very crutial time for babys development and its where highest risk of misscarriage is do abit of walking everyday nothing like gym or lifting heavy objects though :)
Avatar m tn i had a nissen fundaplacation surgery one in 2006 another in 2011 what exercise for my stomach should i not do
Avatar f tn What are some safe exercises to do in the first trimester? I want to stay healthy without overdoing it as I am diabetic and classified as a high risk pregnancy. I'm 8 weeks in. Helpful tips please?
Avatar f tn ( Enjoy it girl while you can!
Avatar n tn First of all, it is not "known" you "have" to work out your abs every day. You don't have to work them out at all if you don't want to. So obviously you have a goal in mind. There are no experts on these forums, just people who do what you do, hopefully, who can share experiences. But abs are basically part of a core workout, while other muscles might not be.
Avatar f tn I used to do a similar style of circuit class but once I found out I was pregnant., my doctor said to stick to low-moderate intensity exercise particularly for the first trimester. To be honest I've been too tired to even think about doing those classes!
