  • i dont think there is a 'too much' as long as you arent straining your body too hard!

  • Unless you have complications I don't see any reason for you not to walk as much as you normally would.

  • Walking is fine, however much you want to do. You want to avoid running a lot or anything like that that can cause problems from the constant pounding of your feet on the ground. And bicycling can be dangerous because of the risk of falling. And of course no contact sports. But walking is ok as long as you feel up to it. And the exercise is good for you and will help prepare your body for labor.
