Get regular exercise
Two facts about exercise and fertility are well known – intense physical activity can disturb your menstrual cycle, and obesity is associated with decreased fertility. Weight loss in obese women can improve their chances of conceiving. It’s probably not a good idea to take up kickboxing or other such activities but swimming, walking, yoga, jogging, bicycling or Pilates are all excellent exercise options. You will have to modify your exercise routine during your pregnancy.
Regular exercise boosts your blood circulation, prevents excessive weight gain and keeps you fit and healthy. It’s best to start an exercise routine before trying to conceive than suddenly deciding you need to start exercising when you are already pregnant. Yoga is an excellent option because it incorporates techniques like deep breathing, concentration, posture, etc. which are all beneficial during labor. Remember that it’s never a good idea to overdo it. If you’re a competitive athlete, an avid runner, or do intense gym workouts every day, you will need to cut back on your exercise if you want to conceive. If you do not do any exercise, just a little exercise preconception will prepare your body for carrying a child for nine months.
