  • I'd say if you were going to exercise it would have been better to start earlier. Now, I would say, do something simple like swimming if you can find a pool. And find somebody positive to be around.

  • As long as youre leading a healthy lifestyle then no. If youre not smoking and drinking, and youre eating properly then the baby is fine. Sometimes exercise actually can do more harm then good, espeically when a person over exerts themselves. Try keeping somewhat active. go for a walk everyday. Its something simple and easy to accomplish

  • Try going for walks during the day, take it slow not to fast, when I was stressed during my pregancies my DH made me walk and we would talk a little, but the fresh air and the blood flow from walking made me feel so much better. A little walk never hurts!!

  • keeping in shape makes it easier for your body to recover from having a baby.
