As you enter into your second and third trimesters, your growing belly will throw off your balance and it is best to avoid activities that increase your risk of falling or trauma to your abdomen. Cycling on a stationary bike is a good source of exercise, but may become more uncomfortable during your final trimester. It is best to avoid ridding off road or on when pavement. If you're new to cycling, it is best to stay on a stationary bike. For experienced riders, you may continue until your second trimester, but it is recommended to switch to stationary bike.
Never exercise to the point of exhaustion or breathlessness. Stop exercising immediately if you experience any of the following: vaginal bleeding, difficulty breathing especially while resting, dizziness, headache, chest pain, muscle weakness, calf pain or swelling, preterm labor, decreased fetal movement, and fluid leaking from your vagina.
Check with your physician to discuss the risks and benefits of cycling during your pregnancy.
