IF fit-2 main things: Being involved in a fitness activity is a consideration for pregnant women in stable health with no complications who have time and want to exercise (beyond normal activity).
However, even they should always follow these key rules:
1 ask their most experienced OB providers what can be done now and ask again at every visit and with each new diagnosis or problem
2 avoid lying flat on the back & pain.

Common sense: Remember to keep your heart rate 140 BPM or below, and to do activities only in moderation.
