Second Trimester: Move

second trimester move

This could be a time when you feel pretty good although it is also possible to still feel pretty tired and nauseous. Moving could well give you a boost, you just need to work out what is best for you.

If exercise is not your thing, just getting out for a walk is a brilliant way to move and get some fresh air. This can also be a time to start pregnancy yoga sessions.

If exercise is your thing, you could still be doing your normal routine – just listen to your body and only do it if it feel ok for you. Don’t push it if you’re not sure.
Why move? It boosts your endorphins, it’s better for your wellbeing and it eases the pressure on your joints, which are loosening as your body changes which can make you feel achey and stiff.

Just don’t overdo it, the key is gentle.

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
