Brief Answer:
Not to exercise

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns.

You are entering term pregnancy and you could deliver anytime.

Exercise at this stage is not advisable as it will lead to preterm delivery and other possible complications.

I dont think its a good idea to exercise at this stage.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Regards

Brief Answer:
You can deliver normally

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Exercise makes no difference in possibility of having normal delivery. It is wrong belief to have that exercise is going to help to a great extent in normal delivery.

You can do walking or kegel's exercise as many days as you like. But its not compulsory.
