I'm entering my second trimester and want to start exercising. I'm a fairly fit and very healthy person but hadn't been exercising prior to becoming pregnant. Is it OK to start an exercise program now?

Avoiding Excessive Weight Gain During Pregnancy

I've just entered my second trimester and my doctor is concerned that I've already gained too much weight. How can I eat well and give my baby all the nutrients it needs without adding on too much extra weight? And, please don't ask me to give up dessert!
