I can’t believe how difficult it can be to try to work out while pregnant. I started doing 20-30 minutes of prenatal pilates each day. It feels great afterward, when my muscles are all stretched and loose. Yesterday, however, I thought I was going to pass out after only 10 minutes – my belly felt SO heavy. I’m hoping the extra exhaustion is not a sign of what is to come once I’m technically in my 3rd trimester in just a few short days.
It’s also strange thinking of working out as being a way to keep muscles loose and toned instead of as a means to lose weight. I’m trying to think of it as a means to an easier labor, delivery and recovery.
A review of 10-minute solution Prenatal Pilates is on its way….I have tried 4 out of the 5 workouts thus far
