- Stay hydrated: Christmas is tiring, you get out of your normal routines and it is easy to forget your usual bottle of water.

- Take a walk: If you can't fit in your usual exercise regime don't forget that walking is good for you too. But a brisk walk with family or friends is a sociable way to maintain the regular cardio.

- Stretch a little: Find time to stretch out with some yoga poses. Ten minutes of yoga can do much to make you feel more relaxed and energised. Sitting on the floor with legs crossed with feet beneath your knees, lengthen the spine and sit up tall. Relax your shoulders, inhale deeply into your belly and press your chest forwards.

- Enjoy: Make the most of being pregnant and accept offers of help. Let other people carry the shopping and do the cooking.
