Im not into yoga or the gym. The weather is so nice right now. I alternate walking trails.  I love walking by the river. Squats are becoming harder but I wanna keep my booty in shape.

Check out "40 weeks of fitness: prenatal workout series with Lauren  Huber Griffith" on youtube. It's a little more advanced but she also has various steps on each move so it's easy to work up to the full thing. I also "sectioned" it in to 4 separate workouts that I'm mixing and matching. On top of this continue the walking! I'm doing a minimum of 5kms on my walks 3 times a week and working up towards 10

I do 5 days a week at the gym just started in January.   I am overweight and wanted to get healthy then surprise i found out I'm pregnant and currently 7 weeks.  My daily routine is 20 mins on treadmill,  20 on bike or elliptical,  60 crunches or situps,  then I work out my thighs,  Lower back and other areas.  My doctor said to keep working out and drink tons of water so i don't cramp up.  My trainer also said just use your body as your signal and you will be just fine :) But I would definitely consult a doctor because we are all different and they know best.

I do water aerobics 3 times a week.  The other days I try to get walking/swimming in. It's  great on your body and really helped me with the swelling. :)
