  • Yes, you can do all of that until your belly gets bigger. Your center of gravity will shift and you will want to do more low impact workouts.
    Swimming is the best! And Prenatal Yoga too!

  • You can definitely still exercise. I did all the way up until I gave birth pretty much, but really listen to your body. It will tell you if you are working too hard or if you need to rest. Don't push yourself to do things that are not (or were not) in your ability level. I for one loved the elliptical and swimming when I was pregnant.

    As a side note, I truly believe that working working out helped me keep my weight in check, and probably contributed to how I lost the weight so quickly. Good luck.

  • You can work out newly pregnant if your body is already used to it. I was in the military when I was first pregnant (exercise while pregnant was my question). The doctor said if I was already used to the regimen
