Pregnancy is a normal physical state and shouldn't be viewed as either bewildering or strange. Nor should pregnancy be feared because of any supposed lasting ill effects on the body. By taking a common-sense approach to eating and following a simple exercise routine approved by an obstetrician, most women can feel wonderful during pregnancy and return to regular body shape and fitness levels without too much difficulty after giving birth. Leading sports gynecologists recommend that, during pregnancy, workouts be continued but pared down.

A subject as complex and emotional as pregnancy defies simplification, so don't expect to watch March of Dimes Presents: Take Charge of Your Pregnancy with less than your full attention. Otherwise it will soon leave you behind. Sponsored by the March of Dimes and with Candice Bergen as the de rigueur celebrity host, the CBS/Fox Video program (90 minutes, $29.98) is an information-packed overview of the many concerns and issues encountered during pregnancy. Although actress (and recent mother)

ONCE AGAIN, the Daily News shows its liberal bias by completely degrading abstinence-only programs. Has the editorial writer read the most-recent statistics on teenage - and younger - pregnancies? It is pretty obvious that not only is the abstinence program not working - but I think the same could be said about condom giveaways and Planned Parenthood programs. If memory serves me correctly, the latter two programs are also government-funded programs that I assume are also staffed by liberal cronies of the Democrats.

Claire Gawinowicz Oreland Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter's pregnancy is a perfect example of how, despite the best intentions of parents to prevent it, a teenager can still get pregnant. By choice, Palin's daughter is going to have the child and marry the father. Which is exactly the point - it's their choice. No one is forcing her to get an abortion; no government authority is telling the family what to do. They decided among themselves how to handle this very private matter.

Pregnant women, beware. If you smoke a cigarette, if you drink anything alcoholic, if you sip caffeine-laced beverages, if you take aspirin, you may be committing a crime. You may go to jail. Sound far-fetched? Well Pamela Rae Stewart, 27, just spent a week in a San Diego jail on charges that she was criminally irresponsible when pregnant, helping to cause her infant son's death. Her son was born brain-dead last Nov. 23 and died Jan. 1 when life-support systems were turned off. The child had traces of amphetamines in his system at birth, which the doctor who delivered the baby routinely reported to county authorities.

In 1991, a Cherry Hill-based group calling itself Assuredly Fine Productions, which specialized in children's theater, moved into the adult realm by presenting the musical Baby at Society Hill Playhouse. Renamed the Living Arts Repertory Theatre, the troupe then returned to South Jersey and began to stage full seasons at the Westmont Theatre in Camden County. To reflect its location, the troupe changed its name a couple of years later to the Westmont Theatre Company. The company has moved again to become the resident theater of the South Jersey Performing Arts Center located in the Tweeter Center on the Camden waterfront.

In TV land, producers often "kill off" a character when an actor departs the show. But killing off a character because the actress becomes pregnant is an entirely different matter. That's exactly what's happening now, claims actress Kari Wuhrer, who started on General Hospital last January but was let go in August after informing the producers she was with child. Wuhrer, the New York Times reports, filed a lawsuit Thursday against ABC Productions and American Broadcasting Cos., charging that the soap opera's producers killed off her character, Reese Marshall, after Wuhrer notified the show she was pregnant.

The story line of Tri-Star Pictures' "For Keeps," starring Molly Ringwald and Randall Batinkoff, might play in a small town like Kenosha, Wis. But as far as big-city reality, it's a bust. Kenosha is where we meet Darcy Elliot and Stan Bobrucz, two crazy-in-love 17-year-olds on their way to college and bright futures as prize-winning journalist and architect, respectively. These kids are so wholesome they squeak. They are so virtuous they've waited 2 1/2 years to Do It. They are so responsible she's "been on the Pill for forever" (only to regulate her menstrual cycle, not to have sex, at least not initially)

A Delaware County woman became pregnant after being implanted with an embryo that had been frozen at 320 degrees below zero and then thawed, physicians at the Albert Einstein Medical Center's Northern Division said yesterday. The announcement marked the first time that the technique - known as cryopreservation - had been successful in the Philadelphia area. Only three babies have been born in the United States using this method and about 100 have been born worldwide, national fertility experts said yesterday.

By Kanani E. Titchen, Esther K. Chung, and Thomas A. Klein If you're a woman of reproductive age in Pennsylvania, you'd better make sure you have health insurance before you get pregnant. And you'd better make sure your insurance covers care related to pregnancy and delivery. In 17 states, including New Jersey, an expectant mother can buy health insurance and get the coverage she needs for herself and her baby. In Pennsylvania, however, pregnancy can be considered a "preexisting condition," meaning a woman can be denied health insurance simply because she is pregnant.
