Physical activity in pregnant women is still low in Indonesia, even though doing physical activity during pregnancy has many health benefits and is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. This study aims to find out what factors are related to physical activity in pregnant women. This research was a quantitative study using a cross-sectional design. This research was conducted offline using a questionnaire sheet and Google form. The sampling technique used Convenience Sampling, with a total of 130 pregnant women with the criteria of pregnant women who can communicate well, own a smartphone, and read also write. Data were analyzed using linear regression with a significance level of p<0.05. Most of the respondents (62.3%) have physical activity in the moderate category. Age, gestational age, parity, and BMI were not significantly related to physical activity in pregnant women. However, education and occupational levels are significantly related to physical activity in pregnant women.   Some pregnant women already have good awareness and knowledge of doing physical activity, but some are still in the mild category. So, physical activity in pregnant women still needs to be improved.

Teknik pengambilan sampel menggunakan Convenience Sampling, dengan jumlah 130 ibu hamil dengan kriteria ibu hamil yang bisa berkomunikasi dengan baik, memiliki smartphone dan bisa baca tulis. Data dianalisis menggunakan linear regressesion dengan tingkat signifikasi p<0,05. Sebagian besar reesponden (62.3%) memiliki physical activity pada kategori aktif sedang.
