Sicknesses, fatigue, stress, mood swings and finally, strength to carry and deliver on the d-day are all issues she has to deal with. If there’s anything that can help a woman cope with the stress and of pregnancy as well as give her a healthy baby, then it’ exercise. Yes, it may sound crazy but exercise helps a lot in the time of pregnancy. It keeps the woman healthy and very energetic. Even though exercising is good during pregnancy, please consult your Doctor before starting any exercise routine.

. 2. SwimmingSwimming is very good during pregnancy because it helps relieve swollen ankles and it’s very gentle on the joints. Don’t worry about the size of your tummy since you’ll float and feel light like a balloon. 3. Indoor CyclingThis is done using the stationary cycle meant for indoor exercises.
