You’ll still need to be careful and you’ll want to take care of yourself. Try not to overdo it even though you may feel really good.
1. Exercise. It’s important to maintain your exercise routine (don’t overdo it!) even while pregnant. Exercising during pregnancy can help to prepare your body for labor and will help to keep excess weight off. Here is a previous post I’ve written on exercise during pregnancy, feel free to check it out.
2. Practice kegel exercises. This will help to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and can help to make labor easier.
3. Watch your appetite. The old saying goes, “you’re eating for two,” and although you are technically eating for two, this doesn’t mean you need to eat double the amount of food. During the second trimester, your appetite should be improving but be careful not to eat too much and try to eat a balanced, nutritious diet.
