You boogie with the bump
Even if you're not a gym rat, there is something about being pregnant that makes exercise fun -- even novel. I, for one, loved the fact that I didn't have to suck in my stomach while on the cardio machines at the gym! In fact, the desire to exercise simply because it's healthy for your baby can be very freeing. When you're working out for two, exercise may not feel like drudgery. After all, it's not about losing weight (unless your doctor advises this); rather, it's about helping your body to grow a healthy baby. Another plus: prenatal yoga, Pilates, and other group classes are great places to meet and bond with other moms-to-be.
