Does anyone have any suggestions for a exercise dvd that is safe to use during pregnancy? mainly for the second and third trimester...any other exercise suggestions? Thank you!
When it comes to exercise, you should always ask your Doc's opinions and maybe she/he will have specific advice.
AnswerDad is right.
I was not high risk in any way and did everything I'd normally do up until the baby came--exercise, riding mass transit, going to work daily, etc. I even went into labor at work...past my due date.
I don't know if this is safe or not, but I'm 5 months pregnant and I've been occasionally using the Wii Fit or Wii Fit Plus. I stop whenever I feel tired.
Why wouldn't exercise be safe? Has your doctor told you that you should be concerned?
I know that my doctor old me to excercise as little as possible. I was actually told to only walk in 5 minute increments because I have already lost 15lbs while pregnant. So they are concerned. There are cases where excercise is not the best thing to do.
I use Prenatal Yoga with Shiva Rea & love it! It has workouts that can be used for all three trimesters. (I'm in my 2nd currently)
Got on amazon.com for about $12.00..I'm also planning on ordering another one - Rocki's Prenatal Yoga - labor preparation DVD - the Dad participates in this workout with you so he can feel more involved.
