Best Pregnancy Exercises for Third Trimester

What are the best pregnancy exercises for third trimester? I understand the question, especially since you told me you feel like a beached whale That's why moving around makes me feel better

Doctors don't tell you to stay off your feet anymore, unless you're literally on bed rest The first thing to say is no matter how far along you are, your heart rate shouldn't get above 140 beats per minute I get a workout close to that rate just lifting myself up off the couch The best pregnancy exercises in the third trimester are low impact for that reason For example, go for long walks as long as you aren't dehydrated or stressed

Then sprinting to the bathroom isn't good enough It doesn't really count, though many such trips means you are hydrated Speaking of water, you should be in the pool Now I'll really feel like a whale Walking in the pool is a good choice if your balance is off because of the load

And the buoyancy reduces the load on the joints There are water aerobics classes for pregnant women because it eliminates the risk of falling over and strain on the joints Then I won't look as weird either You're also free to actually swim in the pool for a workout, getting your heart rate up without the strain on the hips and joints a run would cause What do you think of yoga? If you weren't in shape to do it before, don't start it now

If you were already doing it, even with the tendon relaxing hormones, don't overdo it There are pregnancy yoga classes There's still the risk of overdoing it if you try to do what you haven't done before So what are some other exercises I can do? Do standing pelvic tilts, tightening abs and other core exercises that don't require you to lay on your back I know laying on your back can hurt circulation

If you were a runner before pregnancy and keep it up through the pregnancy, doctors say it is okay as long as the pregnancy is healthy and you feel okay I jogged once in a while Then you don't start now However, you can spend a session on an elliptical machine for a gentler workout than a treadmill, or do a stationary bike I know they advise using stationary bikes so you don't fall over; there are a lot of warnings on what not to do for safety and health reasons

If you're tired, dehydrated, joints hurt, switch to a long walk, though if there is spotting or sudden pain, stop and call the doctor That's simply a matter of listening to your body, which is screaming "when is this baby coming out?" You're free to do light weight lifting with ten pound weights to tone your arms; consider it practice for when you're carrying your baby I ought to bundle twenty pounds in a blanket and carry it around the house, if we're going to be realistic There's always the old standby of mopping, sweeping and scrubbing the house to burn calories and get ready for the kid

I'm the only person who'd notice it now, and no one will notice it after we've started filling the diaper pail and piling up the dirty baby clothes
