I suggest you start your walking routine in a moderate peace, about 3 times a week. Walk slowly for the first 6 minutes to warm up, then slightly accelerate your step, but do not overdo it, you have to keep a moderate pace without running. Every 10 minutes of walking, stop and try stretching your muscles for relaxing. Walk at least half an hour.

If you can walk longer without feeling any discomfort, do it, but do not become overheated.

While walking you need to keep some simple conditions: Keep your mouth closed, breathe out slowly and hold back straight; then your diaphragm becomes especially active. Diaphragm is exceptionally important while providing correct development of your baby.
