When you find out you are pregnant, you can feel overwhelming emotions and a huge responsibility to the little human you are growing! One of the things that many women worry about is exercising. Is it safe? Who do you listen to, your mom who says you need to take it easy, or your girlfriend who insists she went to spin class right up until the day she delivered?
A pregnancy is, generally speaking, 10 months from the time of conception to the time of birth. That’s 40 weeks. 280 days. And in that short period of time, your baby goes from a fertilized egg, which is roughly 0.1mm (not even visible to the human eye), to a full term, living, breathing human who on average weighs around 7.5lbs at birth.
