c. Safe and Comfortable Activities


Physical activity is not dangerous and is recommended during your pregnancy. By being careful, you can do most of the things you enjoy.

Walking, dancing, biking, gardening, pushing a baby in a stroller or playing with children are examples of daily physical activities that can improve your general health.

If you are already active, try to remain active during your pregnancy. If you were not physically active before your pregnancy, you could begin during your pregnancy by walking, swimming, and doing prenatal exercises.

Moderation is the key. Listen to your body. If you feel pain, fatigue, or are abnormally out of breath, slow down or change activity.

The following table contains a list of activities that are safe, activities that are less safe, and activities to avoid during pregnancy.
