Exercise while trying to get pregnant

I am 35 going on 36 in Aug 2009.  My husband and I are trying for our first child.  Will it be alright to continue to exercise while trying to get pregnant ?  We currently run 4-5 km once a week, attend spinning class once a week and yoga class once a week.  Will this moderate exercise affect my ability to conceive ?  I went for a pre-natal check-up recently and I am all OK to go.  Thank you.

I don't think exercise will hurt your chances of getting pregnant - if anything, it will help.  Once you get pregnant you might want to talk to your OB about how much is too much.
