It is great to be pregnant. At last you are fulfilling the role all those feminine body parts were meant to carry out. Your body is responding in perfect harmony to the needs of your baby as he or she grows. Your uterus is expanding little by little. You are making more blood to supply enough for you and your baby. You are producing exactly the correct hormones in the perfect quantities. Your body is accumulating extra fat to protect your baby from inadvertent bumps and unusual changes in temperature. It’s really quite an amazing process, and your body is doing it automatically and perfectly.
Yet, there is a lot you can do to assist your body so that you stay healthy, fit and strong throughout your pregnancy and beyond. Eating well is crucial. Where does your body get all the components it needs to grow you and your baby in the best possible way? Of course from the things you eat. Proper metabolic balance is easier to maintain when you are eating right and getting all the nutrients that your body needs to function at peak levels.
Exercise is an important part of the formula for staying healthy and keeping in peak shape for the moment you are anxiously waiting for. You can compare giving birth to a long-trained for sporting event, like a race. You will need strength, endurance, concentration, and excellent health to have the best possible experience. Simple, non-strenuous exercise throughout your pregnancy will go a long way to making your birth the best experience it can be.
