    Hello everyone!

    I'm 9 weeks pregnant and I'm not the most active person going 😬 but I quite fancy trying to be as healthy as possible during my pregnancy and whilst il try eating all the right foods (cravings permitting lol) I would love to exercise to. Any ideas of safe exercisies? Also I would love to do pregnancy yoga does any one go to classes that are in Essex that they would recommend or a did if there is one out there?

    Any suggestions welcome 😃

    Should have said I don't want to go exercise mad! Just gentle exercise as my body isn't really used to exercise and I don't want to over do it.

    If you're not used to it be careful. Try some nice walks or swimming is very good for you, just take it easy and work up

    You should stay with the same level of exercise as you did before you were pregnant, if you belong to a gym ask for guidance... Basically I was told nothing too high impact, no weight training and to be careful with abdominal exercises.

    I would stick to walking and swimming type exercises... Also bear in mind you don't want to get too hot and you don't want yo tire yourself out

    I was yesterday on my yoga class and there was one pregnant girl practising with us. She used to practice yoga a lot before she got pregnant and said that they adviced her not to stop, just to be careful. She asked the yoga instructor which exercises are not good for her and she just skipped some during the class.
    So I'm sure I will also practice yoga in that way when I'll get pregnant... of course with the permission of my doctor
