The great news about Pregnancy Exercise is that the "rules" from American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists are much looser than they were just a few years ago.

Your first trimester might not feel good, but a simple routine can help keep your energy levels and mood up.

Do your best to keep the habit of fitness even if it's much less than what you are used to doing.

During your second trimester you are hopefully feeling better than the first trimester.  Though you can't do anything dangerous or on your belly, you CAN do alot.

Walking, running, strength training, swimming and dancing are all great ways to stay fit as your belly grows.

Third trimester workouts should include lots of stretching and continuous strength training along with any cardio that you are comfortable with.  Strength training will help keep you feeling strong and stable as your belly gets bigger and more uncomfortable.  Cardio will help keep swelling down and endorphins high!
