9 weeks preggeies, gym &amp  diet
Hi Doc
I am 9 weeks pregnant and have already picked up 4 kgs. Is it safe to start going to gym now or should I wait till 12 weeks. Is it also safe to go on a preggie diet to avoid being too over weight by the time I give birth. I am so weight concious but do not want to affect my baby' s health.

A healthy diet is a good idea and moderate exercise is also good as long as you do not push your heart rate up too high for too long.
