Maybe 3 pounds and is not a sufficient reason to bother most women, but weight – not the only reason why pregnant women should even occasionally climb off the couch and go to the gym or for a walk trot.
Physical activity has a positive effect on mood and insulin sensitivity and does not affect the course of a normal healthy pregnancy. “Women who are involved in sports may continue their studies, and pregnant women who will never do, can safely begin to exercise” – the experts advise.
