Pippa Middleton

After the wedding of Pippa Middleton to James Matthews in May 2017, everyone wanted to hear the good news about the addition to the royal family, and they did not take long to wait. On April 22, 2018, the girl officially announced her pregnancy , saying that she is now in her first trimester.

No one was left in doubt when Pippa published another column in Waitrose Weekend magazine (distributed in the British chain of the same name), in which she shared her updated fitness plan for expectant mothers.

“When I heard the happy news that I was pregnant, I realized that I needed to change my usual 4-5 day training plan and find a way to safely continue exercising for three trimesters,” wrote Pippa.

“I’m a sports fan, so I looked at a lot of books and websites about exercise during pregnancy, but was disappointed with the amount of information about the do’s and don’ts,” she continued. “This is my first pregnancy, which is why I had so many questions that ended up unanswered.”

Pippa Middleton decided not to stop training because, unlike her sister Kate, who suffered from toxicosis all three pregnancies, this problem bypassed her. “I was lucky enough to get a 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness,” Pippa said, “which meant I could continue most of my activities as usual.”

But Pippa is sure that pregnancy is not a reason to relax. She still keeps her body in shape, but she still had to give up running. The girl also added that now, in the first trimester, she enjoys training more than ever.

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge said that she and her husband did not want to immediately advertise the pregnancy, so she could not consult with the coach and decided to deal with this issue on her own.

“I took the initiative myself and adapted my current training program, adjusting the weight and intensity to what I like,” she wrote. “I work out 3-4 times a week for 45 minutes on a less intense program.”

During her free time from training, Pippa Middleton rides a bike or takes light weight walks: “There is nothing better than outdoor activities to maintain the body and “cleanse” the head.”

“I have noticed changes in my body and weight gain, but through effective exercise and sports, I feel that it is becoming stronger and more resilient, which is good for maintaining a healthy pregnancy, childbirth and subsequent recovery,” says the expectant mother.

Is it safe to exercise during pregnancy?

According to doctors, playing sports during pregnancy is safe if you do not overdo it and train under the supervision of a trainer.

The more active the pregnancy is, the easier it is for the expectant mother to adapt to the changing shape and weight gain. Physical activity will also help prepare for childbirth and quickly return to shape after the baby is born.

However, pregnant women are advised to avoid some very active, contact and team sports, such as judo, football, scuba diving, exercises with heavy weights or performed on the stomach.

Pippa Middleton will continue to write about her pregnancy exercising experience for Waitrose Weekly, and we can’t wait to hear her share her meal plan!
