Giving birth might be the most intense workout you’ll ever do. Exercising while you’re pregnant is a great warm-up! Being physically active can help you keep your energy up, minimize aches and pains, and sleep better. But it’s also important to get plenty of rest — and listen to your body. Exercise when you can, and take it easy when you need to.
