Of course, the majority of women benefit greatly from exercising throughout their pregnancies. You definitely need to discuss your exercise plans with your doctor or other health care provider early on to make a few adjustments to your normal exercise routine.
Depending on your work-out preference, I recommend swimming (shallow water to avoid too much pressure), water aerobics, biking, walking, pilates, or any combination of cardio, strength, and flexibility exercises. Avoid bouncing or jarring activities, leaping, prolonged exercise, or any movement that puts the body in a compromised position. A few typical activities to avoid are: contact sports, skiing or snowboarding, horseback riding, or scuba diving.
