A. yes, agree with both two answers above..

a regular exercise before pregnancy and even during pregnancy are believed to be related with significant reduction in labor pain. besides, by doing regular exercise you can help strengthening your muscles and bones, and also stretch some pelvic muscle that will benefit when the time comes for you to deliver the wonderful baby.

Q. I got an advice from my fitness instructor that doing exercise for 60 min is good for health. I got an advice from my fitness instructor that doing exercise for 60 min is good for health. Is that right? And What if I don’t have time to exercise 60 minutes a day?

A. The best advice I've heard about exercise is that "you've got the rest of your life to get in perfect shape". Sure, 60 minutes a day would be great, but thinking you have to do 60 minutes a day to get benefit is a bit defeating for most folks. The thing is to start being more active doing things you enjoy and gradually, painlessly, and safely increase your activity until you achieve the fitness level you desire. Far better to take small steps that to bite off so much that you either hurt yourself or are so miserable doing it that you don't continue.

Q. While in a conversation with anyone they have about a minute before I loose tract and intrest, Is this ADHD I always feel like I have to go full speed 24/7 and can never relax, sounds strange I know but it seems to be catching up with me.

A. not necessarily...i see that you are 31. those symptoms are new? if so- thee are other conditions that might cause them. hyperthyroid can get you in that state too. so it might be a good idea to go and get checked up.

I had a very good mouth -- that is I could be guided by the slightest touch of the rein; and that is a great thing in London, among carriages, omnibuses, carts, vans, trucks, cabs, and great wagons creeping along at a walking pace; some going one way, some another, some going slowly, others wanting to pass them; omnibuses stopping short every few minutes to take up a passenger, obliging the horse that is coming behind to pull up too, or to pass, and get before them; perhaps you try to pass, but just then something else comes dashing in through the narrow opening, and you have to keep in behind the omnibus again; presently you think you see a chance, and manage to get to the front, going so near the wheels on each side that half an inch nearer and they would scrape.
