Belly Fat Pregnancy: Restricting your diet and a sedentary lifestyle during pregnancy are not what you should strive for. You should not be concerned about belly fat during pregnancy, only with maintaining a healthy diet for you and your developing child. Ask your obstetrician for a nutritional consult as soon as possible. With guidance from your doctor you can continue to excercise also.
