How Preggy Mummas Keep Fit

I’m now 6 months pregnant, well into my 3rd trimester and feeling fabulous! Not long to go now! This week I thought I’d share my favourite ways to keep fit during pregnancy.

When Cherry was a bump in my belly, I had plenty of time to myself and managed to fit in at least 3 exercise classes per week. This time round, finding time is a little more tricky, but since Cherry started pre-school a couple of days a week, I’m now back on track.

Friday mornings I look forward to Aqua Mums Water Aerobics at St Kilda Sea Baths. The feeling of floating in the warm water is just amazing! Our instructor Mandy is a trained Physiotherapist and really knows what’s best for our preggy bodies.

Finding time to exercise during pregnancy is important, but it’s also equally important to rest and relax! Besides looking and feeling your best, these classes are a great way to meet other ladies with babies too!
