Working out during pregnancy 1
I was pretty active before pregnacy but I had extreme fatigue during the first trimester so all I was doing was sleeping on my free time. I was hoping to start taking walks and maybe some prenatal exercise classes when I feel a little more energized. But the last couple of weeks, I have been trying to be more active and I find that I'm prone to muscle cramps and my fitness level has gone down significantly.

The doctors recommend to keep on staying active if you are used to working out before pregnancy but I found out that I turned into a total couch potato. And I don't know how to bounce back
