Every single pregnant woman should exercise throughout her entire pregnancy. I wonder if women understand all the benefits of exercising during pregnancy. If they did, I think more women would exercise while pregnant. But anyhow, I know that some women are just afraid and they don't know what exercises they can do while they are pregnant.
