Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

while pregnant?  I went to both during both my pregnancies.
Actually, swimming is a great pre-natal form of exercise. It is low-impact as the water supports your weight. Any stroke is great, or just swimming with your head up breast-stroke style. Refrain from ad movements or anything that causes you to 'push' with your tummy area.And have fun! Just put water safety first in big areas of water like the ocean.
