Almost all pregnant women should be doing some sort of prenatal exercise, but beyond the basics, there are some extra easy exercises you can look into that still offer great health benefits. Kegels - the best pelvic exercises for women and oh so easy. You can do these without even thinking about it. Swimming - swimming while pregnant is not for the faint of heart (but only when it comes to picking a pregnancy bathing suit!). Other than that, swimming is a perfect, relaxing, low-key, but still highly beneficial exercise for pregnant women. It works your arms, legs, and other muscles, plus you'll feel so lightweight in the water (bliss). Weight training - weights don't sound easy, but I'm not talking about pumping major weights. You can reap huge benefits from a few simple weight lifting exercises (I'm talking minutes a day). Prenatal yoga - light, low-key, easy, and fun; yet still an awesome mama workout. Dancing - ah dancing. If you can get your partner (or friends) to go dancing with you once a week you'll get to have some pregnancy fun and get your body moving. Just keep it safe. Pregnancy is not the time to test out new tricky salsa moves - sorry.
