What are other pple doing about exercise? When I got pregnant before, I exercised pretty much every day for about 30-60 minutes: treadmill, elliptical and weights. After miscarrying at 6 weeks, though, I'm terrified to exercise this time around. On the one hand, I know it's so good for you to keep in shape throughout your pregnancy and that it could have positive effects such as increasing blood flow to the uterus; on the other I'm just so scared that anything at all strenuous could cause another miscarriage and figure I could always start working out again in the 2nd trimester. Thoughts?

At this point, I'm leaning towards easy paced walking and prenatal yoga.
