We know we talk about it a lot, but exercising during pregnancy really IS healthier for you and your baby.
Need convincing? Read about the benefits of exercise in pregnancy.
But like everyone, we do need a bit of fitspo every now and then.
That’s where Jessica Ennis-Hill comes in. She’s currently nine month’s pregnant with her second baby, and her Instagram has been giving us serious pregnancy exercise goals.
From biking to running to weights, the Olympian has shown us how she’s keeping up her fitness levels during the last few months of her pregnancy.
Jessica captioned her post,
‘Just about managing to do a little exercise. Definitely slowing down now. Not long to go.’
The important thing to remember is to go at your own pace and do what you can. You certainly don’t need to do gym-based exercises to stay active, it can be as simple as getting off the bus a stop early or taking the stairs instead of the lift.
Every pregnancy is different, and as Jenbob comments on Instagram, ‘I can’t even get dressed without a rest #36weeks.’
