Maternal aerobic running during mid or late gestation improves the quality of oogenesis and folliculogenesis in the ovary of neonatal rats: An experimental study

It was shown that maternal aerobic running can lead to increased plasma levels of estrogen and progesterone, also improved histological characteristics of the ovary in neonatal rats.

Effect of maternal activity during gestation on maternal behavior, fetal growth, umbilical blood flow, and farrowing characteristics in pigs.

Although maternal exercise during gestation in the pig increased umbilical blood flow and appeared to reduce maternal restlessness, impacts on offspring development in postnatal life are not known.

The effect of maternal exercise on somatic growth and lung development of fetal rats: Morphologic and morphometric studies

Overall growth and lung development in fetuses from mothers that exercised during the entire course of pregnancy showed markedly decreased size and weight of body and lung, smaller air spaces and thicker future alveolar walls, and fewer osmiophilic lamellated bodies inAlveolar type II cells.

Influence of exercise-induced maternal stress on fetal outcome in Wistar rats: Inter-generational effects

The findings suggest that the adverse effect of maternal exercise during pregnancy and lactation on fetal outcome in one generation is transferred to the subsequent generation.

Type of accommodation during gestation affects growth performance and reproductive characteristics of gilt offspring.

It is suggested that the type of gestation accommodation in which gilts are kept may affect production performance of gilt offspring, possibly by fetal programming.

Effects of training on reproductive tissue blood flow in exercising pregnant rats.

It was concluded that training does not significantly attenuate the reduction in RBF and VBF in pregnant rats that occurs during an acute bout of submaximal EX and thatTraining does not affect fetal weight or fetal number.

Cellular proliferation and vascularization in ovine fetal ovaries: effects of undernutrition and selenium in maternal diet.

It is demonstrated that nutrient restriction and/or Se level in the maternal diet affected cellular proliferation in follicles, blood vessels, and stromal tissues in fetal ovaries, and plane of nutrition and Se in the mothers' maternal diet may impact fetal ovarian development and function.

Blood flow and steroid and nutrient uptake of the gravid uterus and fetus of sows.

The decrease in umbilical BF and uptake of nutrients per kg fetus with day of gestation suggested that porcine fetal metabolism declined as pregnancy advanced, and a large portion of the energy requirements of the fetal pig were met by catabolism of other substrates.

Effects of forced exercise during gestation on farrowing and weaning performance of swine.

Seventy-three gilts and 24 sows were tethered throughout gestation, and one-half were forced to walk on a treadmill 15 min daily 5 days a week; forced exercise did not improve reproductive performance as measured by numbers of pigs farrowed and weaned or by birth and weaning weights.
