So last two days I really felt like pregnant ladies are meant to feel sick and not allowed to do anything other then sit, feel heavy, uncomfortable and must be excluded from fun and feeling normal!
Yesterday I went with Emilia to water park and the guard told me me off to stand ” too deep” in a kids wave pool in exactly 1.2 m. Even for me that meant the water was barely touching my shoulders. Explanation was that the rule here is ” pregnant women are not allowed to go that deep!”
And today I was almost not allowed to go to soft play (i had to argue my way in) with my 3 years old- I was recommended to sit down!!!! Well I would prefer to put my feet up and sip a cup of coffee really! But explain it to my 3 years old who has got so much energy that can distribute to many.
What is wrong with the world!!!????First and foremost every pregnant woman knows the best her current fitness level and what is appropriate for her and what is not anymore. Secondly when did pregnant women became so weak and sick like? Our great grandmas would still work on the field throughout their whole pregnancy and give a birth to their children straight on the field and then in few hours go back to work.
Being pregnant and if cleared out by your doctor you can stay fit throughout your whole pregnancy and you certainly don’t have to feel like you can’t possibly do 1 hour in soft play or a pool! And it doesn’t require a lot of effort.
Here is me 31 weeks pregnant doing my favourite 10 min! (no excuses – everybody can find 10 min) upper body work out. All you need is just dumb bells based on your fitness level- I was using 4 kg one. here (normally when not pregnant I would do 5-10kg).
