  • Walk a bit slower, and drink LOTS of water to stay hydrated. Try also to not swing your arms allot while walking.

  • I feel the same as you... I'm all ready for a walk, then we get 4 houses down & I'm BEAT! I pull my son in the wagon (and sometimes walk my dog too) so I bring a bottle of ice water. That really helps. I stop in the shade & take a drink of water... let my son point to things he sees & let my dog sniff around. Keep it up... the walking is SO good for you!

  • Walk slower - don't power walk, stroll. Take breaks to rest.

    This is your body's way of saying slow down. As you get further into your pregnacy, your lungs simply can't provide enough oxygen to your body and the baby's body... they can't expand enough because there is no where left for them to expand to. Help them out by not demanding them to do so much.

  • walk slower - stop earlier - drink lots of water - eat carbs about 15 minutes b4 you go

  • Try swimming if there is a place you can go. It is great exercise and very relaxing!
