This is the 7th episode of Pregnancy, part of healthy lifestyle series by Dr. AU.

Follow these tips for safe and healthy fitness:
00:00 Introduction
00:20 During exercises, start slowly, progress gradually, and cool down slowly.
01:10 You should be able to talk while exercising. If not, you may be overdoing it.
01:35 Take frequent breaks.
01:55 Don't exercise on your back after the first trimester. This can put too much pressure on an important vein and limit blood flow to the baby.
02:45 Avoid jerky, bouncing, and high-impact movements. Connective tissues stretch much more easily during pregnancy. So these types of movements put you at risk of joint injury.
03:25 Be careful not to lose your balance. As your baby grows, your center of gravity shifts making you more prone to falls. For this reason, activities like jogging, using a bicycle, or playing racquet sports might be riskier as you near the third trimester.
04:19 Don't exercise at high altitudes (more than 6,000 feet). It can prevent your baby from getting enough oxygen.
04:49 Make sure you drink lots of fluids before, during, and after exercising.
05:05 Do not work out in extreme heat or humidity.
05:15 If you feel uncomfortable, short of breath, or tired, take a break and take it easier when you exercise again.
05:42 Stop exercising and call your doctor as soon as possible if you have any of the following:

Chest pain
Calf pain or swelling
Abdominal pain
Blurred vision
Fluid leaking from the vagina
Vaginal bleeding
Less fetal movement
