Will exercise help me prevent weight gain?

Regular moderate exercise during pregnancy has been linked to less overall weight gain and subcutaneous fat deposition (fat under the skin). It helps maintain muscle mass and increases your metabolism, which probably reduces the risk of gestational diabetes. Adequate weight gain is important for a healthy pregnancy, but exercise can help play a role in preventing excessive weight gain and the associated complications. Starting a moderate weight-bearing exercise routine early in pregnancy and continuing it throughout can help in maintaining a healthy pregnancy weight.
