Avoiding Risk of Some Exercises


ACCORDING TO THE 2008 PHYSICAL GUIDELINES FOR AMERICANS, HEALTHY AMERICANS SHOULD GET TWO HOURS AND 30 MINUTES PER WEEK OF MODERATE INTENSITY AEROBIC ACTIVITY DURING AND AFTER PREGNANCY. GOOD IDEA? IS THE NUMBER RIGHT? ABSOLUTELY. EXERCISE IS VERY IMPORTANT. WITH REGARD TO THE TWO-AND-A-HALF HOURS YOU GET, HERE’S THE THINGS THAT WE ARE TAUGHT TO AVOID DURING PREGNANCY. HORSEBACK RIDING, WATERSKIING, CONTACT SPORTS. ISN’T THAT SORT OF COMMON SENSE? YOU LOOK AT THAT LIST, AND I HOPE A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY, YEAH, THAT IS COMMON SENSE RIGHT THERE. EXERCISING ON YOUR BACK AFTER THE FIRST TRIMESTER, WITH THE BLOOD FLOW THE EXERCISE IN HOT, HUMID WEATHER. WHY IS THAT — VIGOROUS EXERCISE IN HOT, HUMID WEATHER. WHY IS THAT? YOU DON’T WANT TO INCREASE YOUR BODY TEMPERATURE OVER A CERTAIN POINT BECAUSE IT IS NOT HEALTHY FOR THE FETUS. PEOPLE DO THIS HOT YOGA, GOING TO THE SAUNA THAT IS NOT HEALTHY I LOVE TALKING COMMON SENSE SOMETIMES BECAUSE IF YOU ARE ACTUALLY CARRYING ANOTHER BODY INSIDE OF YOU, ANOTHER HUMAN BEING, HOLDING YOUR BREATH IS NOT GOOD IT IS CALLED OXYGEN TRANSFER TO THE FETUS, SO IT IS COMMON SENSE.
BUT I DON’T THINK PEOPLE REALIZE IT. IF YOU JUST HOLD YOUR BREATH FOR A LITTLE WHILE, AGAIN, YOU ARE BREATHING FOR ANOTHER HUMAN BEING
YEAH, ABSOLUTELY ALL OF THOSE THINGS THERE ARE PRETTY LOGICAL, BUT EXERCISE IS A VERY COMMON TOPIC WITH MY PATIENTS AT THAT FIRST APPOINTMENT. PREGNANCY, I REALLY USE THAT AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR EDUCATION ON GENERAL HEALTH. YOU DON’T WANT TO START SOME VERY VIGOROUS EXERCISE REGIMEN FOR WOMEN WHO’VE NEVER EXERCISED , BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW IF THEY HAVE BEEN EXERCISING, YOU WANT TO CONTINUE FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER EXERCISED, THEY CAN BEGIN WITH GUIDANCE TO REALLY EXERCISE. YOU’RE GOING TO DECREASE YOUR RISK OF PREECLAMPSIA. IT IS VERY HEALTHY.
