In brief: Diet and exercise

Walking briskly 30 minutes a day is adequate for cardiovascular health.
To maintain weight you must eat a diet balanced with fruits, vegetables, whole grain, lean protein, and adequate calcium from dairy such as low fat yogurt or skim milk. Your OB can tell you an estimate of your caloric needs per day according to your present weight and how far along your pregnancy is.
