Is exercise recommended during pregnancy, if yes, are there any restrictions during pregnancy?

A. I exercised all through my pregnancies. I only gained a total of 10-12 pounds each time. I had easy deliveries because of the exercise. This has nothing to do with nausea. I had 9 months of nausea the first time around. Don't overdo the exercise, walking is the best exercise ever, and I climbed hills and stairs and walked several miles a day. My shortest delivery time was 5 minutes. I almost did not make it to the hospital. All my babies were healthy.

Q. What actions should i take in order to keep my self in a sharp and restricted fitness control?

A. I would try some body weight circuits 3 to 4 times a week.
