This might be one of my most requested posts ever — a roundup of my favorite prenatal and pregnancy workouts!

I have to admit, when I found out I was pregnant I was so excited about the idea of a ‘fit pregnancy’. But I learned first-hand how challenging it can be to keep moving with a growing baby bump. 

Between the first trimester fatigue and nausea, and the breathlessness that came with my growing belly; there were a lot of days a walk around the block was my workout for the day.

So if you’re reading this right now first, second, or third time mama — good for you! You do your best to keep moving and forget the rest.

That being said, an active pregnancy has its benefits. For example, exercising during pregnancy can help reduce backaches, improve sleep quality, and prevent gestational diabetes {based off an article from the American Pregnancy Association}.

For me, working out throughout my pregnancy was a constant in my life that kept me, feeling like me. And it helped prepare me for literally the hardest workout of my life, labor {all 36 hours of it}!

So I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorite prenatal workouts that kept me moving throughout my first, second, and third trimester. From low impact cardio and strength training, to prenatal yoga and barre.
