A 32-year-old female asked:

Not many: I tell my patients that as long as they are not bleeding they can continue all exercises they were doing prior to pregnancy. It's important to stay hydrated throughout the workout. You obviously wouldn't want to be involved in any exercises that can cause trauma to your abdomen.

Ask your OB: Do not smoke. Little or no alcohol. No meds unless first checked with dr. Take Folic Acid but avoid pills containing vitamin a. Avoid all herbal meds. Beware of "natural" remedies.
