Do you exercise? Can you recommend safe exercises for pregnant women?
I used to go for a jog in the park, but I'm afraid to run now, because of the pregnancy... I just go for walks... Any other ideas?

I do light yoga to help with back pain, but the best person to ask is your doctor/midwife.

Swimming is a great option if you have access to a pool (and a decent maternity swimsuit). Allows you to get a good workout but takes some of the weight off your joints.

Yes! I love to exercise:) you can keep up with the same routine that you had before..once you get further along you just have to modify it. I use to run everyday.. When I got to my second trimester I just did longer walks and some other cardio low impact workouts.. now being almost 32 weeks.. I still do a 45 minute cardio workout and a ton of leg and butt exercises..it is whatever is comfortable for you..just listen to your body and talk to your doctor first:)

My morning sickness caused me to call it quits. I'm a coach with team beachbody so I was working out 5-6 days a week. I hope to feel better and start again soon.
