Any workout advice?

I am 9 weeks pregnant, and wondering what i can start doing now other than the basics of " walking and stretching" to keep myself in shape before i start showing. I am only 5'1" and 110 pounds, so any weight that i gain will show. Any suggestions? Diets? Workout Videos?

  • Long walks, swimming, yoga, Keagles (Tightening and loosening your vaginal muscles. Do it multiple times a day for a few minutets at a time), Squats. (Helps open your pelvic area and stretches the lower muscles used in child birth) .. Weight lifting isn't suggested. That can cause too much strain on your body, especially if you weren't doing it before you got pregnant.
