When pregnant it is fundamental your approach to exercise is transitioned from what you did previously to accommodate your current needs. The structure of anatomy will alter somewhat with the Pelvic Floor, Abdominal wall and spinal position.

Pregnancy, as it becomes progressive will start to bear a greater affect on the anatomical structure we bear. The predominant nature we see will involve the Lumber spine which is the mid section of the spine being concave (curved Inwards) with the Abdominal muscle length expanding with the ever growing development which will form it's thigh bones (Femur) within two months into pregnancy.

The pelvic floor muscles will become elongated and therefore lacking the contractile force to maintain a level of strength within the muscle tissues. The pelvic floor muscles play an integral part to lumber pelvic stability. When the hormone Relaxin which has receptor sites within the Pelvic floors tissues becomes relatively high in secretion, the affect this will have on tissues will involve tissues relaxing and no longer will desired strength in tissues be consisted with.

The Pelvis will ultimately be pivotal, The Symphysis Pubis holds the lower segment of the pelvis together, the Sacroiliac joint which plays a role in supporting the upper body structure, and is the strongest joint in the body. The Pelvis will often be found to be out of it's original place (prior pregnancy) with the weight bearing becoming more prevalent with time going on.

Often it is found the pelvis will tilt anteriorly when the abdominal length expands and the mid back arches. The important part prior to pregnancy which is still relevant is ensuring the local muscles which are deep from the tissue surface are strong to sustain our structure integrity. The Global muscles which are often smaller muscles will become contracted to a higher degree to help stabilise the local muscles in the case of lacking strength.

Part 2 is on it's way!
