Stay Cool and Hydrated
Staying cool is very important when you are pregnant. For this reason, it's a good idea to dress in layers which can be shed as you get warmer during your workout. Avoid exercising in rooms with poor ventilation and avoid outdoor exercise altogether when it's hot and humid. Remember to drink plenty of fluids to keep your body's natural cooling system functioning properly. As a guideline, your urine should be almost clear if you are properly hydrated.
