Pregnancy Questions: Of course it is safe to walk or participate in moderate exercise. I would bet there would be a whole section about this in your prenatal book that you are reading. Every pregnant women should have such a guide book for the times they wonder about all of life's various issues during pregnancy. I know every OB i know recommends this for their patients.
