We know about the many benefits of exercise during pregnancy, but with the changes your body is undergoing your ability to exercise can be affected.
So many changes in such a short time. The relaxin hormone is one of the most talked about of all the pregnancy hormones. It is well understood that an increase in this hormone toward the end of pregnancy, softens your ligaments and prepares your body for childbirth. BUT there is a (larger) significant increase in relaxin within the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. Think about the consequences… perhaps exercise regimes should take this initial spike into consideration?
