Healthy pregnancy exerciseThe American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise per day on most if not all days of the week, unless you have a medical or pregnancy complication.
Always check with your doctor first to make sure it's safe for you to exercise.
Exercise within your comfort level. Ensure your exercise doesn't cause pain, shortness of breath or excessive tiredness.
Choose exercises that don't require your body to bear extra weight. Good options are walking, swimming, stationary cycling and low-impact aerobics.
Avoid activities that increase your risk of falls or injury, such as contact sports or vigorous sports.
Avoid exercising while lying on your back after the first trimester, as the weight of the baby may interfere with blood circulation.
