Walking (Overview)

Your doctor may also suggest a safe exercise plan. Walking is usually the easiest type of exercise, but swimming or other low-impact exercises can work just as well. Exercise is an important way to keep blood sugar in control, and physical activity in pregnancy has been found to decrease the risk of developing gestational diabetes.

When will my baby begin walking?

By 16 months: Some babies are comfortable crawling for months and some skip crawling to go straight to walking. It is normal for babies to take up to 16 months to learn to walk. If still not walking then, s/he should be evaluated for motor delay. Remember to give baby plenty of opportunities for safe movement -- too much carrying or bringing things over to your baby can cause delay too. ...Read more

Sounds good: Sounds like a good plan. Weight training 3-5 times / week is plenty, depending on if you split it into groups on specific days. If all one combined routine, then 3 days / week sufficient. Cardio can be every day if desired and not too much -- careful not to overtrain. Good Luck. ...Read more

This falling feeling happens to me when i'm completely awake. I'm usually standing up or walking and then it'll just hit me out of no where?

Cataplexy?: Agree with dr. Rivera-godreau. If you also have sleep paralysis, excessive daytime sleepiness, hallucinations when you wake up or go to sleep, it can be narcolepsy. Is this "falling feeling" triggered by emotions or thoughts, such as laughter? It maybe worthwhile to consult a sleep medicine specialist for evaluation of possible disorders. Hope that helps! ...Read more
