None to decrease: 'bowlegs' or genu varus is common and generally inherited. You can do any exercises u like but there are no specific exercises to decrease the bowleg alignment of your legs.Some of the best athletes have " bowlegs"....! osteotomies can ' straighten ' your limb alignment but would not be recommended . Best of luck.

Unfortunately: There are no exercises that will adequately address bowlegs.

Yes: You should keep active throughout your pregnancy. Just about everyone can exercise during pregnancy. Yoga and walking are good for those who are not used to exercise. You can continue almost any exercise during pregnancy. If you have medical or pregnancy complications, you should ask your doctor before exercising.

Is it safe to exercise while pregnancy?

Dr. Lesley Meister
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: All women should try to be active during pregnancy. If not previously active, then moderate activity such as walking or swimming 30 minutes a day is recommended. If a pregnant woman is already active, then she should maintain that level of activity during pregnancy. There is no heart rate limit for these women, but if they make any changes they should do so slowly.

Dr. Jeannette Lager
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Many benefits: Exercise can be great for pregnancy! it helps with mood, helps to prepare your body for labor and delivery (building stamina), and can be a great time to connect with your partner and talk about your future child. However, it is important to discuss this with your doctor. Exercises to avoid include scuba diving and any contact sports.

How can I use an exercise app to prevent cravings?

Dr. Seema Patel

Not sure: Your question is not very clear. Craving for what? Food exercise, etc? Usually cravings are caused by repeated use of a substance, i.E caffeine, chocolate, etc; your body gets used to this; the best thing is to wean yourself off. You can go cold turkey or slow wean. Drink water because most things are dehydrating, chart to see triggers: menstrual cycle, moods, weather etc to prepare yourself.
