The purpose

Multiple studies have demonstrated a very low prevalence of women meeting physical activity and weight gain recommendations during pregnancy. Additionally, previous Blossom Project studies have shown that when pregnant women engage in a 20 minute walk each day, they spend significantly more time sitting in addition to longer bouts of sitting resulting in increased total sedentary time. We are going to test which method works best to decrease sitting time, and how those methods effect metabolic parameters such as insulin resistance and blood glucose. This study will consist of three groups, each utilizing a commercially available fitness tracker, Fitbit. Group 1 (SR): will reduce sedentary time by interrupting prolonged sitting. Group 2 (WALK): will reduce sedentary time via walking. Group 3 (UC): will continue on with their normal daily routine; usual care.
