Common Questions and Answers about Ab exercise pregnant


Avatar f tn I am about 7 weeks preg. New mom, is it ok to do situps??
Avatar n tn I am doing Kung Fu, we have had several students train while they are pregnant. I still do some ab work but just slower and pause whenever I feel like it. I don't do any impact stuff like hitting the bags. But most of the women at the dojo who had babies say that ab work outs help with delivery. One think to point out is that I've been doing this for two years so I've decreased from when I normally do.
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 I am 4 weeks pregnant and want to know what cautions in exercise i should have. I went walking and feel very drained and dont want anything to hurt the baby. I know it us a dumb question but it has been 12 yrs since i have been pregnant. My son is now 11 and my daughter is 15.
10028419 tn?1416841704 Im 24 weeks and before I got pregnant I exercised all the time. (Mostly jogging, squats, crunches) just to stay in shape. 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 f tn Other than that if i get a burst if energy I walk a mile, planks, standing crunches, leg raises, and do a few things I found online. I searched up safe exercises and safe ab excersis. Yoga and streching is also really good.
Avatar f tn Im saggy from my first plus from the 60lbs I lost before I became preg w my first and want to tighten up the sag but am 2 months pregnant. So whats some workouts safe during pregnancy? Im a stay at home so cant run like I did before.
Avatar f tn This is my third pregnancy and Ijust walk the treadmill and do the elliptical. You probably should not being doing ab or cardio workouts. While pregnant slow down and be safe.

Avatar m tn i had a nissen fundaplacation surgery one in 2006 another in 2011 what exercise for my stomach should i not do
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.
Avatar f tn If you can keep a conversation going without being winded while doing the exercise its ok. No nos are ab working, twisting, or jumping. Walking believe it or not is the best form of cardio for pregnant women. I walk up my hill everyday, and it gets harder every week. Exercise keeps baby healthy too as long as its in moderation (30 min a day).
Avatar f tn Im about 5 weeks pregnant. Can i still do ab workouts? I lost 25lbs un 3 months and i got pregnant. I workout 3-5 days a week. I want to stay in shape throughout my pregnancy so i can bounce back to normal after giving birth.
Avatar f tn Performing certain exercises in certain areas of the body to lose fat in those areas is one of the biggest myths floating around... Unfortunately, your body will burn the fat wherever it sees fit, which is determined by your genes. Doing both cardiovascular and strength exercises are crucial to losing fat mass, but there's no specific exercise(s) that will burn fat from the abdominal area.
Avatar f tn Im pregnant for the first time and Im the first one of my friends to get pregnant. Im only 7 weeks and getting insurance straightened out so I havent seen a doctor yet. What normal activities am I allowed to do? I know no hot tubs but what about exercise wise?
9404455 tn?1405820004 My sister in law told me the best bet is start at 4 to 6 weeks. Although you may feel good the inside is still healing.
Avatar f tn I had my baby 9 days ago and i had an exercise ball that i bounced on during my pregnancy. Can i start working out with it? Can exercise be harmful if ur careful not to over do it? I had a really easy labor, no tearing, no stitches and my body feels ready.
Avatar f tn Finally found out that I'm pregnant. What exercises can i do or what web site should i go to.
Avatar f tn Be careful if you have gone from no exercise before you were pregnant though as your body may get to the point of exertion quicker. I was very fit but have been worried to go back to the gym since finding out. Ive tried to do brisk walks though and will get back to the gym this week, just at a lower level than what Ive been used to.
Avatar f tn Yeah I agree being pregnant is the wrong time to decide you want to lose weight but I would eat healthy drink plenty of water and watch how much you eat just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you need to gorg while eating also stay active don't over do it but walking is good Good luck !
964234 tn?1331949207 Hello Belly Buddies, Just curious as to what all of you plan on doing to stay healthy and fit during your pregnancies? I am the type of person that for the most part, always eats exactly how I am suppose to (good whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, veggies, nonfat dairy, ect). However, I am not big at all on exercising. I have never been athletic or involved in sports.
Avatar f tn You can exercise just like you did before becoming pregnant unless your dr says otherwise but try not to over do it. Stretching and exercise are extremely healthy for you and baby.

2181422 tn?1400511380 ve lost all the weight I gained while pregnant and I fit into my pre pregnancy weight.. but its just NOT the same. I had a c-section and am mostly breastfeeding. My tummy is just jiggly lol I've bee. Waiting for the 6 week mark to fully start working out been afraid to pull or mess any of the scar healing. Though I walk alot and chase a three yr old around all day too. I guess this is just a vent. Lol and curious as to what you ladies started with when working out?
