She says growing a baby is not a handicap.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, I hit my local swimming pool and did the best I could to swim laps for about a half hour each day. During my first trimester, I tried working out in a gym, but had such horrible morning sickness that I ended up barfing in the locker rooms and doing very little until I felt normal again.
I’ll admit... I didn’t do anything strenuous in the pool and ended up gaining a lot of weight during the course of my pregnancy. My goal wasn’t to stay fit, but to simply move from time to time and I felt most comfortable doing it in a pool.
Ultimately, it was my choice. I didn’t cave in to the pressure of being a super fit mama with the hopes of keeping a six pack going up until my due date. Yet, that seems to be the new trend now as one fitness blogger is telling moms that growing a baby in your body is not a handicap. In other words, she wants you to get up and move.
But is everyone listening to her advice?
