I touched on exercising both while being pregnant and after you have delivered your babies in a past blog that you can read here. The key is to keep it slow, relaxed, and gentle. Your body, and your babies, may not be able to handle an intense workout.
Make sure you get plenty of fluids before, during, and after your workouts. No matter what exercise you are doing STOP IMMEDIATELY if you develop pain, dizziness, or heart palpitations. Remember that carrying more than one baby is a workout in itself. In fact there maybe times you have to give yourself extra rest.
Once you reach 24 weeks, you should begin to scale back your workouts and put all that energy into your babies. If you are carrying triplets you will want to take it easy throughout your pregnancy. A short walk now and then is probably okay, but don’t push yourself.
I hope these answers help those of you out there expecting multiple babies. Nutrition for moms pregnant with twins is essential, as is a moderate dose of exercise. I know that occasionally it may seem overwhelming during your pregnancy. I’ve been there. But by making smart choices for yourself and your babies you will have kick started healthy habits that will ensure you and your babies are born strong and happy.
