Exercise During Pregnancy: Final Thoughts

Pregnancy, as well as the time after you deliver your baby, can be wonderful, exciting, emotional, stressful, and tiring, all at once. Experiencing this whirlwind of feelings may cause you to overeat, not eat enough, or lose your drive and energy. Being good to yourself can help you cope with your feelings and follow good eating and physical activity habits for a healthy pregnancy, a healthy baby, and a healthy family after delivery. Here are some ways you can be good to yourself:
 
  • Try to get enough sleep
  • Rent a funny movie and laugh
  • Take pleasure in the miracles of pregnancy and birth
  • Invite people whose company you enjoy to visit your new family member
  • Explore groups that you and your newborn can join, such as "new mom" groups.
