STRONG LIKE MOMMY – Exercise during the 1st and 2nd Trimester

As I settle into the 2nd trimester of my pregnancy, my body is becoming accustomed to all of the changes that is happening inside of me. Even better, my Little Bean is starting to make an appearance pushing out my midsection and as I start to share all of these changes with my family, friends, and loved ones I am frequently asked – “Are you still working out?”. The answer is YES. Do I advocate exercise during pregnancy? The answer is also YES. Do I advise everyone to do the same exercises? That answer is NO. Please consult your doctor before engaging in anything strenuous especially during pregnancy but as a rule of thumb, if you were active before the baby then there isn’t any reason you should continue staying active during pregnancy. (In contrast, if you were inactive before your pregnancy it isn’t a good idea to all of a sudden get heavily involved in a disciplined training regimen of consistent and strenuous activity if your body wasn’t conditioned prior) Of course my training …

Diastasis Recti (“Mommy Tummy”)

Mommy Tummy is probably one of the things that scares new mothers the most because we want nothing more than to fit right back into our skinny jeans and our tight clothes. Unfortunately we have to be very weary of how we exercise with our little bundle of joy growing inside of us because pregnancy causes some pretty big shifts in our centre of gravity. Pregnancy also affects our posture and our overall alignment. Because the baby is growing in our stomach there are also major changes to the abdominal walls which is actually a condition called Diastasis Recti, also known as abdominal wall separation. This happens when there is a forceful pressure on the rectis abdominis causing the connective tissue to stretch and separate from each other! This is most common during the 3rd trimester when the stress of an advancing pregnancy is occurring and the affects of Diastasis Recti can be felt long after our baby is born. So how do we know if we have it? Lie flat on your back with …
