Re: If you AREN'T active normally...

well, I was active before pregnancy, BUT... I stopped in the first trimester due to the nausea and exhaustion, etc.

I wanted to start running again and my doctor said that running was fine as long as I started slow.

I've actually decided just to walk instead, I walk 2 miles a day at a fair speed.

Even if you've never been very active, you could start walking. Because I'm always extra cautious when pregnant, I actually started at just 1 mile a day for a full week, then I moved to 2 miles a day. My original plan was to then switch to 3 miles a day and stay at that, but I'm on a treadmill and I'm VERY bored by 2miles - even with watching tv - so I decided that 14miles a week was going to be good for me
