That's what I do as well. Swimming is also great. It's fantastic exercise with less strain on your joints because the water takes a lot of the weight off them.

I've wanted to go back to the gym but my inlaw wants me to wait until after I give birth....The doctor told me it's ok but since I'm high risk all I do is walk to every place I got to go so that is my exercise....keep up the good work try not to push yourself so hard...

I used to be a fitness fanatic until I found out I was pregnant.. Now I'm 9 weeks and don't train, and feel so bad about it.. But it's my choice.. I just want to get out of the "red zone" (=1 trimester) first, and then get back to it.. Read that walking is good... But I sure miss weight room ...

In my own experience, do workout.  Before pregnancy I would do yoga every day, plus dancing and some random cardio as Zumba.. When I got pregnant I changed my routine for a more "pregnant - friendly" one, like walking, aqua gym...  Then I just stopped all workout. Not only I felt terrible the last weeks pregnant but I also gained lot more weight and now it's just so hard to go back to being active...
