Gravity during pregnancy

Why during pregnancy can not lift weights?

So it is possible or impossible to lift weights during pregnancy?

We can not say that it is absolutely impossible, but undesirable. Moreover, we will not dispute the fact that many of the mothers who had already taken place during pregnancy and buckets of water were dragged, and repairs were done, and the children of healthy ones were pegged. Nevertheless, There are cases (and, unfortunately, quite a lot of them) when such "heroes" ended very badly ... What does this mean? On the different health and physical condition of a woman, about the genetic predisposition, about different situations, about the will of the case ... In general, the question should be put this: "if you are not sure that everything will be fine, is it worth risking?".

By the way, directly to the child, lifting the gravity, it's quite difficult to harm. This is about his health. But for premature birth or miscarriage, you can "run into". Especially if the pregnancy is complicated. But one more thing that should be addressed is the health of the future mother. Lifting heavy objects, you can damage your back, which for nine months and so is subjected to excessive stress.

If there is no way out or we lift the weights correctly

As long as relatives and loved ones did not protect you throughout the nine months, there are times when unnecessary loads can not be avoided. If you really need to lift something heavy, do it right, with minimal strain on the body. To do this, stand in such a way that your feet are placed at a distance of about 50 centimeters. In order to lift the weight off the ground, bend your knees, but in no case tilt the upper body! At the same time, your back should be even! Raising, for example, a heavy bag, distribute the support on your hands and feet, while also trying to protect your back. And yet: avoid sudden movements - they do not need you now.

Memo of a pregnant woman:

  1. A woman "in position" should not raise more than 3 kg.
  2. When buying products, you need to distribute the load evenly into each hand.
  3. As soon as the tummy becomes noticeable in size, the pregnant woman should wear a supporting bandage, which allows distributing the load evenly.
  4. If the future mother, after lifting heavy weights (even minor ones) feels pain or, God forbid, observes the discharge, she urgently has to inform her doctor about it. If necessary, then go to the hospital.
