Q: Can I maintain my workout schedule?

A: A modified program of light exercise is actually encouraged during your pregnancy. The key is simply not to over do it. This is not a time to push yourself to the limits of exhaustion. If you monitor your heart rate, do not exceed a rate of 140 beats per minute.
