So you've made it out of the first trimester. Maybe that didn't go how you planned (or maybe it did). My plan was to workout every day and eat all organic food my whole pregnancy. Then I met reality. I was wrapped around a toilet for half of the first trimester instead. The other half had me barely making it off the couch I was so fatigued. This post will go over second trimester pregnancy exercises-for when you're not wrapped around a toilet.
Then came the "golden weeks." Many start to feel better during the second trimester. But you're not far enough along that you're physically uncomfortable all the time (getting shoes on was the worst by 36 weeks!).
These are all signs to stop exercise. If these symptoms continue, reach out to your healthcare provider.
While there is more to consider for second trimester pregnancy exercises and workouts, it does not have to be challenging to workout. Below you can find an example workout for your second trimester!
