Pregnancy and scales do not mix.
Weight gain during pregnancy is inevitable, but that does not mean that you cannot stay in shape and feel good in your own skin while growing a tiny human. Your body will change, and it is a good thing during this time, but it doesn’t mean that you feel good about it. You can help yourself love pregnancy by continuing your workouts and keeping your body healthy.
As a pre/post-natal exercise specialist, and a mom of five young kids, I have heard (and understand) the begging behind the voices asking, “Will I get me body back?” The only answer to this question is quite simple: You will never truly lose your body. This body is yours. It will still be yours after you have a baby. Your job is to have the healthiest pregnancy you can, and to keep yourself healthy throughout the journey. There are however, several key elements to include while pregnant to keep your body in its best shape, and to give you the best starting point postpartum to get back into great shape.
