Question:Gentle exercises for pregnant women?

Is walking better than swimming? How about yoga?

Asked by wishuponastar on 4/2/08 1 Answer»

Answer:

I have relied on walking for most of my pregnancy, but I heard that swimming is also fantastic (I'm not much of a swimmer though), as is yoga. It really depends on your preference. I would check with my doctor, though, before starting any exercise regime.
