I gained 50 lbs with my daughter and only lost about 10lbs of that (I gained while breastfeeding instead of loosing). I'm worried that if I get pregnant and gain another 50 lbs that my small 5'1" frame won't be able to hold it all - LOL!! Not to mention I'd be over 200 lbs which I do not want to do!!
I started out at around 135 when pregnant with first daughter and am now still 175 over 2 years PP
I think it depends from person to person, but I think most lower-impact exercise would be fine...walking, elliptical, certain weightlifting, exercise bike. After the first trimester, I would avoid exercises on your back, or deep lunges and heavy lifting, but I think most things are fine unless you are high risk. I think it definitely helps me relax too. I like to get on the exercise bike and watch Netflix or read; helps pass the time.
