Welcome! so much of daily living is "exercise" -best to heal inside & out, review your fitness prior to pregnancy and during....Then stretch, warm up.. Once you have an ok from your clinician gradually reclaim your personal best.

Light exercise such as wallking can usually be done as soon as you feel like it. However, heavy exercise, weight lifting, endurance training, situps etc. Should wait until your body recovers and you return to a normal nonpregnant vascular status.
