Benefits of Exercise During Pregnancy

Working out anytime especially while pregnant may seem like a chore. From feeling nauseous to a growing belly in the first trimester; body changes & sleepless nights in the second trimester; to barely making it to the bathroom in third trimester. Working out when you feel completely exhausted a majority of the time may not sound like a good idea but there are so many benefits to being active during pregnancy.
