You'll probably be tempted to skip exercise if you have morning sickness. Lying down might seem like a better idea than being up and around, yet for some women, the opposite is true. When morning sickness strikes, they feel better if they go outside for a walk in the fresh air. Others find relief when they swim or do yoga. Since every pregnancy is different, it's worthwhile for you to try exercising even when you have morning sickness. If exercise makes you feel worse, take the day off.
