To keep your pregnancy healthy and tolerable the entire 9 months, check out these tips for keeping your body healthy and relaxed.

Rest, Rest, Rest

During the first few months of pregnancy, everyone tells you to rest while you can. Some people listen, but most continue on with everyday life. In truth, however, rest is exactly what your body needs. You don’t have to literally put your feet up all day everyday, but you should rest when you are able. This can provide your body with some much needed relaxation before it is put through on of the hardest experiences of your life.

Exercise in Moderation

It’s ok to continue to exercise when you are expecting. The important part is to do it in moderation, and to listen to your body. Walking, aerobics. swimming, and yoga are all great forms of exercise for a pregnant woman.
