Whats a good amount of exercise to get while pregnant? I am trying to work out at least 5 days a week for 30 minutes, I figure it's about as good  as it's going to get until I am less tired or well into my second trimester.  Just curious what everyone else does to get exercise and what you are doing to keep healthy through your pregnancy.

I'm 18w2d. I walk about 2-3hrs a day or more. No arm workout until I'm about 20w with light weights. I'm going to start doing light yoga in 21w. I eat health too. Drink lots of water or fresh bone or vegetable soup. :-) No junk food, candy & no by products. Good luck. :-D and Congrats..
