Obstetricians always encourage pregnant women to exercise to stay healthy, control weight and prepare for childbirth. However, pregnant mothers need to understand their body and health to choose the right exercises and intensity, to avoid cases like the pregnant mother below.
Tieu An (living in Sichuan, China) was married for 3 years before she was pregnant with her first child. The husband and family on both sides were so happy that they constantly nourished her with nutritious food. Pregnant women do not suffer from morning sickness, so they eat very well. That’s why after only the first 3 months pregnantshe has gained 8kg.
Entering the second trimester, Tieu An’s appetite and hunger level increased rapidly. Following that, the weight also increased “suddenly” and her face was broken, her body was heavy and out of shape. At this point, Tieu An was startled to realize that she was letting her weight gain too much, by the time she gave birth, it would have been difficult to get in shape.

She quickly went online to find out how to control weight during pregnancy. After watching a series of videos online, she decided to start exercising. But the mistake of Tieu An is exercising with too high intensity and heavy. She trains for more than 2 hours a day and even lifts weights. Her mother-in-law reminded her, but Tieu Linh was still stubborn and even showed her a video of 9-month-old pregnant women still lifting weights “loudly”, asserting that it was only good, not harmful. However, she still strongly resisted, telling Tieu An to just walk and exercise gently. Even moved to live with Tieu An and his wife to “guard” not to let her push weights anymore. This makes the 9X pregnant mother very uncomfortable and gives birth to sulky.

Who would have thought that the very next day, she suddenly had bleeding, and rushed to the hospital to check. Here, the doctor said that Tieu An had a miscarriage due to intense exercise, too much, so it stimulated the uterus to contract to push the fetus out. If she had only tried to practice for one more day, she might not have been able to keep the baby. The doctor immediately injected Tieu An with birth control pills and she had to stay in the hospital to “hang her legs” for further monitoring. Hearing this, Tieu An burst into tears and frantically thanked her mother-in-law for stopping her in time, otherwise a heartbreaking incident would have happened.
How should pregnant women exercise?
Exercise is an essential activity that not only helps improve resistance, body flexibility, and pain relief in pregnant women, but also reduces the risk of excessive weight gain, premature birth, low birth weight, and low birth weight. or diabetes and high blood pressure during pregnancy. And yet, exercising during pregnancy also helps pregnant women reduce the risk of postpartum depression.
However, before deciding to exercise, pregnant women need to “know” the following notes:
– Practice the subject that you have practiced before: If before pregnancy, the pregnant mother used to practice yoga, gym or jogging… then after pregnancy, continue to practice this subject with moderate intensity, depending on the health at each moment.
Drink plenty of water: You need to replenish your body with adequate water before, during and after exercise.
– Should practice in a place with a cool temperature: When exercising, your body is “heated”, and if the training environment is also hot, the body temperature will increase. This is absolutely not beneficial for your health and the development of the fetus.
– Do not participate in difficult postures or exercise with high intensity beyond your strength.
– Get enough rest after each workout: After exercising, you will feel tired, so take time to rest for a while before entering another activity.
And most importantly, during exercise, if pregnant women feel dizzy, headache, chest pain, muscle cramps or vaginal bleeding, discharge, abdominal pain, they should stop exercising immediately. At the same time, ask a family member to take you to the doctor or call the doctor for further examination and advice.
