Maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle is important, even during pregnancy. Not only is it crucial to eat right, but your body and baby benefit from a healthy exercise routine. As always, consult your doctor before beginning any new fitness regimen, especially if you’re not used to regular exercise. Working out while pregnant looks a little different than your typical gym session, but there are lots of resources to help guide you through the transition.
