How do I know I am not overdoing with the exercise since that can be bad thing during pregnancy?
Pregnancy makes you more tired than you usually are.
But not that tired that you have problems coping with
your daily chores or routine. Tiredness can be due to
other factors besides exercising too much such as insufficient
rest, dehydration, or too many hours at work. Eating
enough is of prime importance as your body will need
the extra calories to support two and if you are working
out then energy depletion should be taken into account.
Having factored your diet and rest in, there are ways
to ascertain you are not doing too much of workout.
• How you feel after a workout - the fatigue level
• Engage in the talk test while you are on the treadmill
for example i.e. push yourself to the point where you
are still able to converse despite a raised heart rate
• Monitoring your heart rate is another way.
