Question Pregnancy and exercise

I am 23 weeks pregnant and have the ok from my doctor to work out.
I have been working out with Leslies walking dvds, and some homemade interval training.

I have pregnancy diabetes, and have found that it really helps to workout after I eat to keep my sugar down. But I am so bored with the walking, and have been pulling out my old firm classics (love them! Of all the hundred videos I own, these I never get bored with!) and splitting them up into 2 parts and taking out the ab work, I do one part after lunch and one after dinner each day of the week, exept sunday, do you think this is too much?

I feel much better when doing these than the walking ones, and would hate to go back to just walking again.
Has anyone else been doing vol 1-6 while pregnant?

I just found out there are some new 12 minute workouts, maybe I should get these for lighter days? have anyone tried them, would they be ok while pregnant? is there much ab work?

I wish everyone here a lovely day

Default Re: Pregnancy and exercise

Congrats on pregancy Mia...

1. We do have walking CDs which you download to a MP3 or Ipod.
2. Yes 12 Mins and/or Basics would be good for pregancy.
3. Classics V1-6 would be okay just remember to modify, modify, modify!
4. Also Anna's Just Right Series would be great too as well as the KickButt and FitPrime, just remember to modifiy as needed!

Again, congrats and Happy Exercising !
