As promised, this week’s Workout Wednesday post features a fully pregnancy friendly workout. Although it is a a good workout if you are pregnant, this is also a good workout if you are not expecting. One word of caution, always check with your doctor before starting a new workout or exercise routine to make sure it is safe for you and your baby. Everyone is different and every pregnancy is different, so it is always a good idea to check in first. I have been lucky enough to keep up with my regular workout routine during this pregnancy so far, with only a few modifications. I am hoping to be able to continue exercising throughout the rest of the pregnancy as well.
