SWA data files were thoroughly reviewed to identify periods of nonwear time accog ensure files were as close to hours of wear time as possible. Effects of interventions in pregnancy on maternal weight and obstetric outcomes: The purpose of this study was twofold: Introduction Views on physical activity and exercise during pregnancy have taken on new meanings and implications throughout history.

This allowed all physical activity of at least moderate intensity to be detected by an objective monitor and eliminated the potential for the recall bias or the incomplete reporting of the physical activity in the physical activity record.

Please review our privacy policy. As described, multiple guidelines have been used to assess levels of physical activity and exercise throughout pregnancy. The evaluation of multiple guidelines, the use of an objective monitor that has been evaluated for use in pregnancy, and the longitudinal design contribute novel research findings regarding the assessment of prenatal physical activity.

Conversely, the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines suggest that accumulating minutes of weekly moderate- to vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity in bouts of minutes or more may be appropriate for pregnant women [ 10 ].

This excluded 2 files at week 18 and 3 files at week 35 as previously mentioned in paragraph 2. Furthermore, the use of multiple guidelines has contributed to conflicting evidence regarding the role of physical activity to improve certain pregnancy outcomes, such as healthy gestational weight gain, insulin sensitivity, and preeclampsia. Previous studies have evaluated the prevalence of activity during pregnancy using multiple interpretations of the ACOG guidelines.


The differences in guidelines have led to widely disparate estimates of the prevalence of pregnant women achieving physical activity guidelines during pregnancy—ranging from 3 to The monitor was worn 24 hours a day with the exception of water activities for a 7-day period. These two studies demonstrate that how the guideline is interpreted influences the number of women meeting the ACOG recommendations.

Discussion The current study revealed wide ranges in both amount of physical activity performed during pregnancy and percentage of women meeting physical activity guidelines depending upon which guideline is used and how guidelines are interpreted.

When analyzing data for these 4 guidelines, interruptions of 1 or 2 minutes below the moderate intensity threshold within a minute period were allowed, as has been previously reported with analysis of physical activity data in the nonpregnant population [ 2526 ]. The previously described studies used a variety of methods both subjective and objective to assess physical activity data and ccompendium variety of definitions to determine the adherence to physical activity guidelines.

Average total daily activity was drastically reduced by 66 minutes per day when only the activity that lasted for at least a minute bout was counted.

Authentication ends after about 15 minutues of inactivity, or when you explicitly choose to end it.

Evenson KR, Wen F. Recommendations for the nonpregnant population are very similar; however, they specifically state that qcog activity can be accumulated in minimum bouts of 10 minutes.

Finally, inACOG issued a statement promoting the health benefits and safety of exercise in pregnancy for both previously active and inactive women assuming medical clearance and no contraindications are present [ 2 ].
