Working Out in My Third Trimester

I have been working out throughout my whole pregnancy and I feel like it is super important to keep active and mobile while being pregnant! I don’t want to completely lose myself muscles and my abilities! I know that when I was sick with Endometriosis and had my laparoscopy I recovered faster since I was able to have the muscles to get myself out of bed and to walk around. So that mentality has stuck with me for my pregnancy.

Right now I still use sweat app working out 3 times a week and then walking 5 times a week for 35 mins. Here is a work out with weights that I do! I don’t go hard core I only use 5 pound weights! I know I can push harder but the hubby wont let me so I compromised with him! Also my workouts are about 20-30 mins.

I am so lucky to have my body allow me to still work out and be able to do the things that I want to! I know some woman get crazy swelling and I am glad I don’t have that yet! My belly is just growing bigger which makes it harder for me to walk around and I get out of breath faster but for the most part I can still move around and do everything myself!

Also before I work out I always start with a 5 min warmup and then after my workouts I do a quick 3-5 min cool down so I don’t injure myself!

Lastly if I am up for it I would do yoga or stretches on the days I don’t work out! I try to stretch out my muscles so they don’t tense up and I just want my muscles to be less stiff!
