I really liked Leslie Sansone's walk videos. I think it was the 2 mile walk. It's divided up so you can walk 1/2 mile, 1 mile, 2 miles, etc. Also, there's one specifically for pregnancy that's a salsa and yoga video. Leisa Hart, maybe? I liked dvds because I could control the temp. better than being outside. I also did lots of yoga during my pregnancy, but I am an instructor. If you're not familar with yoga, you will probably want a pre-natal class or video as there are some modifications for pregnancy.
My favorite exercise was simply walking outside with my husband in the evenings. We'd usually go 2-3 miles. It definitely kept me from gaining a lot of pregnancy weight, which was a plus for me:)
I second the walking idea, but with my first pregnancy (I am expecting my second daughter in 2 months) I did water aerobics and it was perfect. A good workout and not too hard. I also do videos I check out at the library sometimes...dancing of some sort is fun for those who get bored easily! :)
water aerobics worked well, as did some pregnancy yoga/pilates videos. I love walking with my husband since it lets us get some couple time and conversation in with the kids in the stroller. :-) But I also like hitting the gym in the early morning so that I can get some alone time in while my husband and kiddies sleep!
