If you've continued to exercise throughout your pregnancy, congratulations! During these last few weeks, keep going as long as your doctor permits. If you're having a healthy pregnancy, there's no reason to quit exercising. Continue to stay hydrated. Listen to your body, and if you feel fatigued, take a break. Several short bouts of exercise make more sense than one long one. As always, stop working out immediately if you experience any warning signs.
