Fitness do's and dont's during pregnancy | Health & Fitness |

When you're pregnant, you may feel you have the perfect excuse to take time off from the gym. But this couldn't be further from the truth.

"No one would think of running a marathon without training for it, and it always astounds me when women try to go through labor and delivery without training," said Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, clinical professor in the department of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the Yale School of Medicine. "I've run plenty of half-marathons, and labor was tougher than that."

Still, exercise regimes can't and shouldn't stay the same when you're pregnant — and these experts will tell you what you should and shouldn't do.
