[PODCAST] How to Exercise with Morning Sickness
Unpopular opinion alert….
You can continue exercising with morning sickness.
The most common advice given with exercising through pregnancy nausea is to STOP.
“Wait until the second trimester when it passes. Just rest through it. Stop pushing yourself so hard!”
I understand the sentiments…and I have questions.
In today’s brand new podcast, I give you 6 tips for exercising more comfortably with morning sickness in pregnancy.
NOTE: you can absolutely make the choice to NOT exercise through nausea and morning sickness. And, if you are experiencing more severe sickness, such as Hyperemesis Gravidarum, speak with your medical provider.
But, there is possibility to use exercise as a tool to help you along through pregnancy with nausea, if it is truly benefiting your prenatal health.
I exercised through all day, every day “morning sickness” in two full term pregnancies for 3 reasons:
- It helped manage the discomfort, aches, and pain in my every-changing pregnant body
- It was a distraction from the monotony of feeling nauseous 24/7, which was supportive to my mental health
- It helped me feel hungrier and thirstier, through food aversions to every food that was not beige in colour, LOL.
