What should I watch out for while exercising during pregnancy?

Exercise Cautions for Pregnancy

If you're exercising while pregnant, your body will send out natural signals. If your body is telling you to slow down, listen to it! Under no conditions should you exercise to the point of exhaustion.

Exercising while lying on your back is counter-indicated after the first trimester, and, especially toward the end of pregnancy, avoid activities that have a risk of falling.
