Exercise ideas?

Before my pregnancy, I was really active. I enjoyed long hikes, backpacking, going to the gym, and doing hot yoga. I even started a weightlifting program with a personal trainer. However, once I got pregnant, I became terrified of miscarrying. I stopped everything and am now having a difficult time figuring out what I can do that is low impact.

What are you all doing for exercise these days? I could use some ideas.

Thanks!

Hi
First Congratulations on your pregnancy, I was diagnosed with diabetes during this pregnancy and my doctor advised me to walk and swim as these are the safest exercises for us and I do some pilate and light cardio and ofcourse I choose the ones are suitable for pregnant!
I hope you find this helpful hun <3

Do prenatal yoga, walk, light weight training is okay,swim, but keep moving. It's worse to stop and not do anything (I speak from experience). But talk to a trainer and a doctor.  There's plenty for you to do.  And listen to your body!
