How can I get in shape to have a healthy pregnancy?

Do what you love.: Body: move your body in ways that you love. Dancing, swimming, aerobics, weight training, tai chi, cycling, yoga, walking, gardening, belly dancing... Mind: begin your day with a meditative practice. Prayer and meditation, journaling, yoga.. Spirit: be sure you have healed your emotional wounds from childhood and beyond. Get outside help if needed. Pregnancy can bring up unfinished business.

See your doctor: After 3 miscarriages, you should see your doc for an evaluation for recurrent miscarriage. The good news is that you still have an excellent chance for pregnancy success even with no additional measures.

A 25-year-old female asked:

Is it necessary to feel pregnancy symptom during healthy pregnancy?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Wendy Askew

Nope: Sometimes pregnant women don't have any nausea, breast swelling, back pain, pelvic pains, etc., etc. During pregnancy. Sometimes a little fatigue is all they notice (& occasionally, not even that!). There's nothing wrong with that! although some women report that their symptoms disappeared before miscarriage occurred, it is not a bad thing, or a warning sign if u feel great during ur pregnancy.

Since the term: Malt can refer to either alcoholic or non-alcoholic fermented barley beverage - i would have to say - it might be unhealthy in pregnancy.
