Suggest exercises during pregnancy

Hi I'm 31 weeks pregnant and I have gain about 25lbs already. I'm 5'4'' and weighed 153 before so I was a little over weight. I want to get in shape after pregnancy. What can I do now to slow down weight gain and what exercises can I do before baby is born?

Hello....2 best form of exercises you can do safely during pregnancy are - (1) SWIMMING - swim for 30-40 minutes daily for 5 days in a week is the best and safest exercise during pregnancy (2) WALKING - Brisk walking 20-30 minutes dailyfor atleast 4 days in a week (3) AVOID THESE ACTIVITIES - high impact aerobics / weight lifting / climbing stares / sudden change in postures.....regards....dr rahul
