Exercising During Pregnancy
Exercise – I love it. I didn’t when I was at school nor when I was having babies. But from the age of 40, I’ve been addicted.
And I take no credit for my compulsion because I have no control over it. I just have to keep moving or standing. I’ve even got myself a collapsible table so I can keep standing at my desk.
Turns out there’s a good reason I have no control over my desire to exercise : I was born with it. Or, to put it simply, my mother programmed me in the womb to be an exercise fan.
My mum and dad were fitness fanatics from their teens well into old age. My mum was walking and swimming right through her pregnancies , and she “infected” my sister and I while we were developing.
