  • Talk to your doctor on what you can and cant not do. You can do lots of walking just dont push yourself

  • You can work out with certain limits and eat better. Diet is not a good thing when you are pregnant but you can make better choices and better portions. Look into a pregnancy water aerobics class in you area. Those are great! Talk to you doctor before you ake any drastic changes in diet or exercise level though.

  • Don't do either to the extreme. What kind of diet are you refering to? Eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water. If you don't drink enough water, your body will retain more fluids causing swelling.
