Exercising during pregnancy for first-time, expectant mothers can impact the size of their newborns, according to Norwegian researchers.A new HealthDay article reveals the statistics, published in the October issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
I just wanted to point out that the heart rate given here (under 120 bpm) is woefully out of date. This heart beat recommendation is circa 1985 American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist (ACOG) recommendations. ACOG currently does not recommend heart rate limits for exercising in pregnancy. Another organization, the American College of Sports Medicine advocates monitoring heart rates but says it's perfectly safe for women to get up around 160 bpm.
