Regular exercise during pregnancy provides health benefits for both mother and baby. It helps keep your weight under control while improving your sleep, blood circulation, and even boosting your mood or energy level.
Getting physically ready for pregnancy before you conceive is a good idea, but thinking that it's only a temporary lifestyle change is not. It may be hard to find time for exercising when you have a newborn, but when staying fit and working out regularly becomes a habit, it is a good example for your child to follow and a great family activity.
