Exercises for expectant mother in second trimester
In the second trimester, you will need to monitor your body's response to exercises, and accordingly, increase the duration and intensity of your physical activities. Make sure you don't do any activities that can upset your balance, such as gymnastics, tennis, skating, and hiking. Instead of these, you can go swimming, water aerobics or stationary bike, etc., which do not require much balance.
Do not play ball sports (soccer, basketball etc.) and contact sports during this trimester. If you do yoga, you no longer have to do backbends or any activity that requires you to lie on your stomach or back, jump or be in an inverted posture. Be careful not to overstretch or jerk the body during this trimester.
