I'm pregnant. My doctor and all other reports I've found suggest pretty much keeping your normal pre-pregnancy fitness routine. Really all I was doing was sometimes 15 min of yoga in the mornings and then running my butt off as a server/bartender on like 8 hr shifts. I went on maternity leave at 4 mos pregnant (long story) and all moms I knew at the time warned me against sitting at home getting lazy. I thought I'd stay active but really I just surf the web all day. and when I try to do yoga, man it doesn't really work! Do you know of a good place online I could find some pregnancy yoga moves? What do you do to keep in shape? I got a pregnant bellydancing video but I haven't tried it yet. I'll let you know how it is.Answer Question

I at least try to do 30 minutes of fast walking, even if it's in my house. I just walk back and forth throughout the house. It's easier if you do it in 3's. Like 10 minutes in the morning, 10 minutes in the noon, and 10 minutes in the evening. 30 minutes of walking vigorously, dancing, swimming, etc. is ideal.
They also have pilates videos for pregnant women.
