My Body – Pregnancy Week 26
How are you feeling? If you are feeling short of breath this week, don’t worry, this is common. Your uterus may be pressing on your rib cage, making it harder for your lungs to fully expand.
Are you still exercising? Exercising throughout your pregnancy can help with the demands of labor and help you have a healthier pregnancy and baby. Check with your doctor to find out what length, and level, of exercise is good for you, but in general it is perfectly fine to continue whatever exercise routine you were practicing before pregnancy, as long as you pay attention to your body’s limits now that you have an extra person to keep mind.
