Exercising while pregnant: Signs to slow down or stop
Working out while pregnant is usually safe and has a lot of benefits. But it's important to be aware of symptoms of overexertion in pregnancy and make sure you aren't overdoing it. Overheating is one risk, and symptoms like dizziness, a headache, or chest pain while working out can signal a health problem or pregnancy complication. Exercises to avoid during pregnancy include high-contact sports and anything that puts you at risk for a hard fall.
