it really is amazing how much simple exercize benifits pregancy before and after if it is ok with your dr. I was in a walking class during my pregancy and while i gained 60lbs, seven months later i am back to less then before I got preganant. By the way I had a 9lb baby, no hypertension or diabetes involved. I walked at a reasonable pace for one hour a day and found it also helped deal with stress that relates to preganancy. good advice
