Do Not: Perform Dangerous Activities
For safety reasons, women who are expecting should not engage in activities that carry the risk of falling or injury, such as ice-skating, rock climbing, skiing, and contact sports.
As mentioned, with the expansion of the belly during pregnancy, one’s center of gravity changes. This makes it more likely that you will fall and sustain injuries performing risky activities.
Do Not: Take Long, Hot Soaks
Soaking in a relaxing hot tub or sauna may seem like a great method for relieving the discomfort that comes with pregnancy, but medical experts warn that this can be dangerous.
The hot water in hot tubs can raise body temperature and lead to hyperthermia, according to the APA. This can cause congenital defects in your baby and other problems. It can even be deadly.
