Answer from: Raúl Olivares, MD
The first thing that you must know is that if you succeed, you are going to be pregnant, not ill. That means that as a pregnant woman probably you are going to be able to do many things that you usually do, and as a pregnant woman, you can still exercise, and in fact, we do recommend patients who are pregnant to do some exercise. The intensity and the type of the exercise can be different, we don’t recommend sports in which there is a really high impact like tennis, paddling, or things like that, but walking, hiking, swimming, riding on a static bicycle, these are kinds of things that you can do.
If you go to the gym, you can do Pilates, you can do Yoga. There are probably some exercises that you may not be allowed to do, but that’s something that you have to discuss with your trainer and then decide which are the things that you can do and things or the positions that you should avoid.
Remember, you are going to be pregnant, not ill. You can live a pretty normal life. Working out is one of the best things that you can do because it’s going to reinforce your backbone, which is going to suffer a bit during pregnancy.
