Boost your exercise
As your bump gets bigger, you may be prone to aches and pains that make getting around harder. ‘Find time to stretch your body, especially your back as it’s under pressure from the extra weight,’ says fitness expert Karen Laing. Your spine’s designed to move in three ways: forwards and backwards, side to side, and twisting. ‘Stand up, and with your hands on your hips, gently rock your pelvis forwards and backwards. Then do side bends by reaching down the side of your leg towards your foot, then down the other side,' says Karen. Do this with your back against the wall to ensure it’s flat. Finally, with your feet a little wider apart, gently swing your arms from side to side, looking over your shoulder as you twist.
