Balance issues during pregnancy

pregnant-woman1As you gain weight in the front of your body during pregnancy, your center of gravity shifts.  This can make you more vulnerable to falling.  As your pregnancy progresses, make sure you wear low-heeled shoes to help with your stability.  Use handrails when going up or down stairs.  While exercise is very important, don’t forget that your balance has shifted so take extra care with some of your yoga poses.  Same thing goes for bike riding – perhaps a stationary bike would be best for now.  While racquet sports like tennis and badminton are fun, rapid shifting from one position to another is likely to cause a tumble.  Avoid downhill snow skiing, in-line skating, water skiing and other sports where a fall could be dangerous to both you and the baby.
