WEDNESDAY, Nov. 11, 2015 (HealthDay News) Yoga, even late into pregnancy, appears to be safe for expectant moms, according to a small new study. This Workout Appears To Be Safe During the Third Trimester | HealthyWomen. What we found should be reassuring for active women with healthy pregnancies: Vigorous exercise appears to be safe for both mom and baby, even into the third trimester.

The studies looked at a. The third trimester of pregnancy is filled with all sorts of thoughts, emotions, and even more physical changes. For those of you who are used to.

What we found should be reassuring for active women with healthy pregnancies: vigorous exercise appears to be safe for both mum and baby, even when continued into the third trimester. Yoga can be a. Hinge at the hips with soft knees, a flat back, and neutral neck, leaning torso forward about 45 degrees. Let hand hang directly below shoulder, palms facing in to start.

Place other hand on a chair or stand in a split squat stance with hand on front leg. Exhale as you lift up and inhale as you lower down. Other low-weight or bodyweight-only strength training exercises to target during the third trimester include: bodyweight squats or sumo squats with a wider stance for an increased base of support. By the end of the third trimester, many women find it uncomfortable to be lifting weights.

So, the easiest way to modify those exercises is to simply go weightless. Still, do the exercise, just minus the weights. For exercises such as “Song Bird” (done on hands and knees) or a straight-arm plank where your wrists are bent at a 90-degree angle. Another kinder, gentler form of exercise in the third trimester: A prenatal yoga class, which needn’t be strenuous and can be more relaxing than lying around. Plus it gives you a chance to practice the breathing techniques you’ll soon need.

Participating in one of my trimester 3 exercise workouts will help give you the energy boost you need for the day. By the end of the day you will no doubt be experiencing greater fatigue and will be less motivated to do a workout. Hold the back of the chair and your feet apart.

Lower yourself by bending the knees while sticking out your bottom and leaning forward at.

  • Thank you so much for these videos I needed to start working out again and your videos are helping me with it. I sweat for sure cause I’m out of shape on my 3rd pregnancy not by much though.

  • Do not lay on your back! You block oxygen supply to your child, you more than double your risk of still birth and after 16 weeks the baby can press on a vein that returns blood from your body to your heart… this is common knowledge and this woman is saying not only to lie on our backs, but to exercise and use weights? Wow

  • You seriously have been a life saver to me during my tricky second pregnancy. I am 40 this time with a 9 year gap so really had no idea what exercises to do. Cannot wait to try your regular workouts post natal. Thank you so much ��

  • I live in London and have done quite a few of your prenatal yoga/stretching and HIIT workouts. Really enjoyed this one, which I did this morning. 32.5 weeks into my second pregnancy and suffering from a very bad back, so had to do a couple of the modifications, but added weights for some of the exercises too, to make up for having to go easier elsewhere. Thanks for your videos, please do keep posting them my 18-month old also often likes to join in (usually by throwing herself on me or in my way!) 😉 xxx

  • With my third pregnancy, I couldn’t stop sleeping on my back. I’ll lay on my side and fall asleep. In the morning I’ll be on my back. My baby is healthy and very smart. I tied my tubes but still wanted to watch cause I love you so much ♥️

  • Thank you for all your prenatal workouts, Amy! I’m 38 weeks and very much appreciate still being able to move my body with your routines!

  • Hi I found a place where there are lots of new yoga tips available on the internet. Just type: “MindYoga4U” in Google. It will be very helpful to you personally.

  • The only decent looking exercise others i saw so gym type and i think they are insane xD i’m 3rd trimester and struggle the most with movement in the lower body so this will help a lot thanks!

  • Amy you are fantastic. Love doing exercise with you! I’m in my 31 week and I do feel fab thanks to you. I have been watching your videos since my first trimester and I’m completely pleased. I just want you to thank for all the tips and time I spent watching you. ����

  • I dont know that I would recommend this for third trimester. I’m in good health and have stayed in good shape considering and these movements caused me pain. I’m at 36 weeks. Plus, why would you only do have the workout and then just explain the second half? That was so frustrating…I’m definitely not feeling satisfied with the pain, discomfort, and stress you just put me through!

  • When i was pregnant with my son I got cramps in my calf’s that would wake up me up in the middle of the night! It was so painful and being extra emotional i took it personal ���� bananas and foot stretches worked so well for me!

  • I’m pregnant also I’m in the 1st trimester…. when does the throwing up stop anyone does anybody know?????????????! �� it’s horrible

  • it is really good job! let me ask you one question, I am 38 weeks pregnancy and I was working with your 3rd trimester pregnancy video for 30 minute starting 33 weeks. however I safer a lot with hemorrhoid and can’t continue my workout. what shall I do??

  • 14 weeks pregnant! This was my first workout back after battling terrible morning sickness the whole first trimester! Felt so good to move my body!

  • I’m 30 weeks currently and I found this work out to be challenging but not too difficult. I didn’t even break a sweat or lose my breath really, just some burning in my butt. It’s a good work out since I don’t have the energy for anything crazy. Thanks!

  • 26 weeks! Have done yoga here and there this pregnancy but it’s been hard with morning sickness and just overall laziness. This was a great workout that I’m going to try and tackle daily! Thank you!!

  • Too diffficult for me in my third trimester and i’m a person with an active lifestyle. Completing this exercises gave me low back and pelvic girdle pain.

  • So grateful for these fantastic videos I can do during the coronavirus lockdown! You are awesome! I appreciate the way you go about the exercises in a gentle way for pregnant mamas!

  • I’m currently 29 weeks and can I just say I love your prenatal workouts! I feel so productive and good after following them! Thank you so much!

  • hi! i’m 20 weeks pregnant and until now did not get back to working out since the begining of my pregnancy/ this was so good for me. thanks!

  • Thank you! 20 weeks pregnant with my third. Made it through it all just had to do the modification on the squat and crossed leg jump move about half way through. Burned 67 cals.

  • I’m in my 14 weeks and tried this workout. Gives me so much sweat and I love it. I haven’t had so much sweat since being pregnant because of my morning sickness which really sucks. Since I do workout alot before I got pregnant so I am used of sweating much. I started your workout routines yesterday, the back pain workout which by the way really eases my terrible back pain. Preparing my body and hoping to have a vaginal birth since my 1st child was born via CS. Hopefuly this time i could go in normal labor and delivery after 8yrs. Will follow more of your workout videos throughout my pregnancy. Thank you so much for sharing! ������

  • I used to follow the same routine after watching this video.. was an amazing experience! Felt fresh and hungry (lol) after workout..!

  • Tried this excercise unfortunately my body doesnt cooperate..i got tired easily and my knees are hurting maybe because im not used to it hehe but still gonna do this excercise little by little.. 36 weeks pregnant..

  • Love it! Not too heavy and not too light either! Just enough for me in my 3rd trimester. Been doing your prenatal exercises since first tri! Thanks and God bless you!

  • Thank you so much! I’m 27 weeks, While I was trying your work out I felt like I didn’t move since 1000 years �� but now, at the end of 20 minutes, I feel GREAT! I’ll do it every day until I’ll can, before giving birth!❤️

  • This really helped my wife because she has had such an uncomfortable pregnancy. We live in area that gets to 105 degrees everyday during the summer so she can’t go walking like she did with our first daughter.

  • I was really disappointed that you didn’t complete the second leg with us! Also, it’d be helpful to mention when to change the direction of the leg circles, since many people are following along with you not actually following a timer.

  • Wtfffffff NIKKKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII. YOURE LOOKING SO GOOD. You’re just glowing and look absolutely amazing. You’re so beautiful!!!������

  • I`d badly experienced serious symptoms of heartburn. I was a victim of a serious acid reflux problems as well as chest pains and 20 days since I have started out utilizing this acid reflux disease treatment method “Tοzυnhο Kοrο” (Gοοgle it), my heartburn was totally relieved! The burning experience, stomach pain, the bloatedness as well as the constant burping have absolutely eliminated…

  • Girlfriend your 2 months behind me and it gets WORSE I haven’t had a single good nights sleep since I was 26 weeks my back pains are so bad that I can’t even move most of the time �� I’ve only got 4 weeks and 4 days left and I just want her out ��

  • Did you know thats the way to do home abortion? Google or even ask your doctor. Ya its ok to do a lil like maybe a morning walk but all of what you did would harm the baby.

  • Feeling good but sluggish at 26 weeks, heat of the summer i think. This is great just to get me moving a bit since I’m really out of routine with working out!

  • I did the elliptical for 30 min about 3-4 times a week and walked a mile everyday. Honestly, labor was the easiest because I worked out but of course I lost like 21 pounds when I got pregnant so I didn’t have much of a belly ��

  • I’m one week postpartum and this was my go to workout in the 3rd trimester but I loved all of the prenatal workouts I did from Amy. Agree with other commenters that it was just right in terms of activity level and intensity so I found myself returning to Amy’s videos day after day throughout my pregnancy and over other prenatal exercise videos that were either too intense or not intense enough. Looking forward to checking out her nonprenatal videos on e cleared. She definitely has a huge fan over here!

  • Hi… thanku I was not able to feel my baby movement properly from 3 days after this workout I felt little pain for some time at last… felt ok after few minutes… and my baby movement was great.. thanks

  • I honestly hate working out especially being nearly 30 weeks pregnant. But I absolutely love this. It’s definitely one of the best ones I’ve been able to find and actually stick to doing everyday ❤️

  • Second video I watch of yours. & I really appreciate your videos! I am 18 weeks. �� saving will-power to workout more at least 4 times a week if not a day more. New mama!

  • I was searching for exercises for last trimester, but only appeared super easy ones that I couldn’t feel nothing, this video is just perfect!

  • Hi sweety, I gave birth last week at 37+3.
    Thank you so much for the videos. I know it helped me a lot, I had delivery in 2.5 hours with my first baby ���� But for the moms out there, while pushing the “big poo” out. I thought my anus will tear thats why I had problems while pushing first. No one told me before it will feel that way �� I wish everyone good luck ������

  • I love your workouts because they focus on the issues I am having. You have very appropriate moves that do not make things worse. Another workout stressed out my sciatica causing weeks of pain. Training during pregnancy requires more knowledge so you don’t cause injury. Thank you.

  • Amy! I’ve been doing your workouts since week 6 and now I’m at week 37. These have been perfect for every trimester, not too much but not too little (and they especially came in handy during the quarantine!). Can’t wait to continue to workout with you in the post natal series! Thank you soooo much for these videos

  • Great workout for me at 30 weeks, its enough to make me feel like I’ve worked, but not too much that i’m totally done in. These antenatal videos never fail to make me feel better physically and mentallythey give me more energy, a really good stretch and I do notice a difference in my sleep on days when I don’t do them. Thanks for all your hard work with these vids!!

  • I love these workouts. They have kept me so motivated and encourage to stay active throughout my pregnancy! I love that they are short but high intensity, they make working out enjoyable and not something I dread. Thank you and please keep them coming.

  • unfortunately, this is not a good workout for 3rd trimester workout. Her pace is too fast. Perhaps, for 1st trimester, maybe early 2nd trimester. After doing it for 5 minutes, I feel out of breath already.

  • 28 weeks and working out with you since the very beginning!! I tried alot of different exercise videos on yt but yours are definitely the best! Not too easy but not too hard as well! Thank you for sharing your workouts!! <3

  • Thank you from Spain!! I have been doing your workouts during my pregnancy, I just have started my 3rd trimester and I feel great and very healthy

  • I love all of Amy prenatal workouts. You can do low or high intensity, whatever your preference is and you can still get your heart rate up. Healthy baby, healthy momma! ��

  • 20 weeks�� pregnant thank you so much for sharing this work out ��️‍♀️ and hope all you pregnancy mommy have a healthy baby and safe pregnancy ��☺️

  • I’ve been active my entire pregnancy and while this is not a hard workout itself, it was extremely painful for me to do most of it due to the baby putting so much pressure on my pelvis at 36 weeks. Is this pain something you didn’t experience or do you just somehow push through it? Because it feels like the Red Sea splitting down below ����

  • 17 weeks pregnant and this is the first proper exercise aside from yoga and walking that I have done since becoming pregnant. Excellent short workout, will try to do these daily to keep my fitness up throughout.

  • I have always loved your workouts when i was expecting. I did your workouts right through the last day for my second one. I’m back in shape now. Got my pre-pregnancy weight back after almost a year. You’re doing such a great job with this. Keep it up

  • hi, i havent done excercise my entire life, this is my 2nd pregnancy and l’m 8 months gone. Do you think its safe to do these exercise at this stage especially for someone who has never done exercise before?

  • Kimberly here at 30 weeks + 5 days and I also love this prenatal cardio workout. Again, I only did the first 15 mins because I want to do another 15mins of Yoga. Next pregnancy (God/nature-willing), I won’t wait until the end of my 2nd trimester to workout again. Because I always worked out hard in the gym pre-pregnancy, everyone told me to relax and not work out so much. I’ll just follow your home workouts so I don’t feel guilty for not going to the gym.

  • In my third trimester and in good shape but these exercises were way to hard on my hips and pelvis. So painful. I would not recommend

  • At 30 weeks pregnant this really helped me to stop being a couch potato as i was feeling too lazy to go out of the house for a walk or gym. Thankyou

  • I’m 17w 3d & This was so helpful, it helped me stretch my body so much as my muscles were stiff, I could feel myself cracking here and there going “uuuggghhh yeessss that feels good” �� I’m gonna try this at least 3 times a week, when I do have the energy ��

  • The day I did these exercises watching this video, I gave birth to my pemature baby. I don’t know if I can link these events, but that’s what happened

  • Thank you so much for all your prenatal workouts! I’m 38 weeks and still feeling great and going strong…keeping up with working out 4-5 days a week as I was doing pre-pregnancy.

  • good workout..except for the fact that my wrists hurt like crazy…couldn´t finish this without stretching them after each exercise

  • This was pretty good for me at about 30 weeks. I couldn’t do the full circuit, but what I could do was a good workout. It was a little hard on the wrists. Unfortunately, my back problems reeeeally didn’t like the bridges; the bones in my lower back feel like they’re just grinding every time I move in that position O.o

  • omg i missed u nikki i havent watched u it seems in so long congrulations on the pregnacy cant wait to see the baby gonna be beautiful just like u

  • I didn’t feel comfortable laying flat on back instead I did reverse push-ups. I took some of the things mentioned and altered it for myself. Nice blueprint

  • I am DUMBFOUNDED by all the idiotic comments! Obviously this work out isn’t going to be for everyone because everyone’s pregnancies are different, but just because it didn’t work for you doesn’t mean this is DANGEROUS and will cause an ABORTION. That’s just so over dramatic and ridiculous. It’s not anyone else’s fault that you never worked out before you’re third trimester or that you have pains. Obviously if you feel pain, DONT DO IT! It’s common sense people. And I love how people think laying on your back is gonna cause harm to the baby yet the standard birth position is…..on your back ��‍♀️.

  • Because of what happened with your collar bone, have you noticed any issues with your shoulder while pregnant? Sorry if that’s weird but I was just curious with the extra weight if there was a change.

  • Great workout but man that wall sit was too much for me. I pushed through the first time but felt it in my quads more than I would like, so skipped the second time around. I’ve been working out my whole pregnancy (almost 30 weeks now), and it can be tricky to gauge exactly the right level of challenging. Still, always feel better after a workout!

  • Is it okay to get this kind of exercise even though I almost got an early labor? I am 35 weeks pregnant now and admitted days ago since my baby wants to come out prior to my due date, thinking that I want to have an easy delivery so I’m eager to take an exercise.

  • 21 weeks today! Thanks to your videos I’m working out at least 4 days a week and it’s helped me deal with lots of mental and physical struggles. Thank you so much!

  • I found your channel earlier this year for diastasis recti repair and then found out I was pregnant! I love all your videos and am glad that I can now do your prenatal workouts. I’m currently 15 weeks and 2 days with baby #3! ����

  • This workout is quite intense and should’ve just been a full workout to work a long with. I can see the other comments feel similar to me. I have worked out and stayed pretty nimble in my pregnancy but laying on your back is something a lot of 3rd trimester women cannot do. In the beginning of this video she says this can be done at all trimesters but this one is tailored to the 3rd trimester and as I did like it I feel like it was half assed by the women who made the video and also not conscious of women who may not be as agile and from the other comments made it seems Natalie gets offended when she is told this and goes off in the comments.. I’ll look elsewhere for a better full length video that caters to every women in the 3rd trimester with modifications for those who can’t do as much this video is very close minded..

  • Loved this! It was just enough for me to complete yet gave me a workout. I only have 2 weeks till my due date and it took me this long to find something that suits me.

  • I’m 38 weeks. The warm-up I was able to do, although a little slower. But the exercises hurt my hips too much unfortunately. I also have hip problems and pain this whole pregnancy so I didn’t expect anything else. Thank for the video.

  • Best video ever! I’m excepting my 3rd child and 32 weeks today. This was perfect!!!! Thanks very much! I’m going to check on Yoga videos ��

  • 19 weeks and 1 day pregnant today, was a bit lazy to exercise but tried yours today and boy did it make me sweat and feel superb! Thank you!! ��

  • Thank you for these videos! I was really active before pregnancy, but I’ve had a hard time maintaining the same level of activity throughout my pregnancy (I’m 23 weeks!). Knowing that there’s an effective 15 minute HIIT video that will get my heart rate up and help me destress is awesome. Thank you!

  • Love this video! Definitely going to check out the resistance bands as I’m having a hard time with my current work out routine. 7 1/2 months preggo over here lol

  • I am over weight and trying to control my weight during pregnancy. I’m 36 weeks and this exercise is fantastic thank you I’ll be doing this once or twice a day.

  • Love these workouts so much! I actually feel like my body is working my arms and legs get sore, the way they used to when I worked out pre-pregnancy!

  • Oh my god my hips nor sciatic nerve would allow for this fast of pace or long of period for hands and knees. Also hurts to lay on my back �� would not recommend for 3rd trimester

  • I found these movements doable for 3rd trimester. My first go around I did have to slow down and pace myself but to say this is ridiculous for 3rd trimester I think just depends on your starting point. No shame in modifying or slowing down. I did shallower squats and lifted my legs up to elbows as much as I could even if I could not touch. Still a good workout IMO.

  • All I see is a bunch if hating pregnant ladies who can’t do this workout, it’s obviously a choice you came across this video looking for workouts for pregnant women if it looks too hard don’t even try it and that’s it. Some women can do it others can’t so if you can’t don’t be mad just move on to something easier. Shouldn’t have waited to the last trimester to start working out.

  • This should be renamed to worst 3rd Trimester Workout. Way too fast, and she didn’t even complete the exercise. If you think you’re about to do a quick workout because your time is limited, avoid this one. She doesn’t even complete the exercise, just tells you what to do, and it’s going to take longer than the length of the video.

  • Lazy efforts here, why wouldn’t she just go through the whole workout with you, all 15 minutes? Annoying to get through to the end to realize she wasn’t going to guide the last 4 moves. I had to rewind and just use what she filmed for the right side. Meh

  • This made my round ligament pain flare dreadfully. Usually workouts are helpful with managing my pregnancy pains. This did the opposite. I do not recommend.

  • Hey thanks for the wonderful workout.. I have just entered my third trimester and enjoying ur workouts… u got me covered for my whole pregnancy. Well would love to see post pregnancy workout for breastfeeding moms and disastis rectis.. good luck

  • Currently 28 weeks! And this is my first REAL work out while pregnant coz all I do is walking, because Im afraid to try it at first thinking it could harm my baby and well, pregnant ladies tend to be lazy. Haha but I will try to maintain this exercise everyday until my delivery to keep me active and healthy. Thank you so much! �� may all the pregnant ladies like me out there have a safe pregnancy and delivery! ����

  • This was AMAZING! Thank you! I’m at nearly 29 weeks and haven’t been confident about what exercises are safe and reasonable at this stage of pregnancy, so I’ve just been going for walks. This takes my pregnancy workouts to a whole new level. I feel pleasantly exerted and flushed, but not overworked or exhausted. I feel super energetic and happy! I really appreciate what you’ve done by making this video!

  • I’m 33 weeks today and this was absolutely perfect! I’ve been very scared to work out because I feel so heavy and tired, but this truly felt so great and safe!!! I’ve done some of your videos pre-pregnancy and I always enjoyed them, so I was so glad that this popped up on my search. Thank you so much for your videos Amy!! They make a difference for so many women.

  • u know her ass outta breath. i worked out pre pregnancy but once i got farther along the workouts i was used to were almost impossible. hoping to jump back in hoping its not to late??

  • Love this really gets your heart pumping and wakes baby up for sure. I used to gym lots stopped around 24 weeks due to a bleed so this is perfect low impact but feels like your doing something x

  • I’m with the majority of commenters. Please label this as an advanced pregnancy workout video. I am 34 weeks and was able to complete the workout okay (except for being on my back, and my belly is WAY too big and low for me to put my legs together like that) but I was certainly not expecting this intensity. What was most frustrating, however, was having to backtrack the video to complete the workout. My 3 year old “works out” with me and I had to endure a tantrum because I wasn’t supposed to stop the video lol. Will not be doing this workout again. All that said I know this is free content and I appreciate you putting it out there. I just felt misled.

  • I’m going into my third trimester and felt bad not working out but you LITERALLY just described me to the T so now I feel more comfortable starting somewhere

  • I love you nikkiiiiii I definitely will try this workout I love your YouTube channel and I wish all good things for you and the baby on the way

  • I am 23 week pregnant..after doing your workout I feel more energetic full day (it’s good) and also feeling more hunger..(don’t know it’s good or bad��)

  • Im nearly 7monrh pregnant and this is my favourite workout, I do it every day and always feel great afterwards, thank you Amy for sharing it with us x

  • Too good… i actually feels better after doing this exercise..
    Back pain really cures.. i feel very energetic in 9th month of pregnancy.. Thanks for uploading such a great video mam…

  • I did the warm up and liked to died. this is not a good third trimester exercise. Sees exercising like a regular non pregnant person

  • One thing a lot of pregnant women don’t know is the effect it will have on you.. look up Diastasis recti that’s the separation of you abdomen which can cause a lot of loose skin some are worse than others because while being pregnant it already is happening. But doing workouts that put a lot of pressure already can make it even far more worse than it should be!!!! Just ladies it’s fine to workout just choose workouts that will be okay for your body as well

  • I had no clue your joints get looser when you’re pregnant. I already have hypermobility (my joints extend more than they should causing dislocations in extreme circumstances) and that makes me nervous to have children. My doctor told me I’d probably have a hard time with pregnancy, but maybe it would make giving birth easier? My aunt is like me, and she dislocated her hips for each of her pregnancies and it made it easier for her.

  • 27 weeks here too! Got the dreaded gestational diabetes so I am trying to include even more Amy into my day to get that blood pumping

  • 38 weeks today, and this one has been my go-to workout for the past week. Perfect intensity for this big bump that gets tight easily. I hope to keep doing this one for the next two weeks, or until the baby decides to come out:) Amy, you have helped me keep moving through this pregnancy! THANK YOU!

  • Love this! I am so happy for you and your family on the baby (hopefully that makes since). The picture at the beginning is so adorable with your nephew and its my absolute favorite thing to see women looking cute in clothes being proud of their baby bump:)

  • i’m not pregnant but i watched so she got the view, she needs all the coin she can get!! been watching this channel for years and i’m not gonna stop supporting now!

  • 25 weeks pregnant! I haven’t been keeping up with work ups as much this pregnancy but there’s never a better time to start than the present! Loved the workout! Thanks for the modifications.

  • When you can’t enter the give away because you’re from the uk�� also nikki i found that you can do the same thing you did to your knees to your arms. For example put the band around your elbows. And make sure you’re arms are in a praying type motion. Then casually like spread your arms apart just like you did when they’re around your wrist!

  • 12 weeks pregnant with twins which means I’m already huge lol. So I chose this workout because it got my heart rate up really steady and felt really good for my body. Thank you Amy! ��

  • I was just rethinking the idea of you having a baby and that’s awesome. For all the time that I’ve watched your videos, I never expected you to have a baby so I’m super proud of you.:)

  • i’m 33 weeks today and this made me feel so good! it’s been hard for me to work out because i work 5 days a week and i’m always exhausted by the time i get home but this workout was perfect!!!

  • Love the new video! I was pregnant with my first baby when you posted the prenatal cardio workout 2 years ago & now I’m pregnant with my second too! Your workout videos are awesome��

  • I’m 18 weeks pregnant and this is maybe my 3rd workout so far during this pregnancy. I had morning sickness for a big majority of my first trimester and couldn’t bring myself to do much other than go for short walks. It felt good to do this video this morning. It wasn’t too easy but not too strenuous. Thank you!!!

  • Hey Natalie, thanks for this upload. I just turned 33wks and was an intense gym goer until second trimester due from being so busy. Never stopped moving or begun being lazy. We moved so i was lifting and squatting just not the way i used too. This video looks like it’ll be right up my alley. With the lack of keeping up with my old routine, do you think its too late to start your video…I found yours to be the best at what intensity i am trying to get back into doing especially before our daughter arrives. Thank you!!!

  • HI! I am 19 weeks and 5 days and this work out was great! i cant help but laugh and remember how I used to do such intense workouts before pregnancy and now a simple squat is hard work! i love it though because I am working to keep my body healthy and safe along with my body!

  • Okay so other than walks I haven’t worked out my whole pregnancy. Yesterday I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and so I know I wanted to do more than walk. Honestly I was nervous thinking about the workout and how I don’t want to be doing any jumping but this workout was SO perfect!! It has me sweating but not feeling like I’m dying. Thank you so much, I loved it!

  • Hi, I just want to say thank you for all your help during my pregnancy. I’m 38 weeks pregnant tomorrow and having a planned c-section (due to placenta Previa) at 7am tomorrow. I will see you very soon for post partum exercises as soon as my belly scar allows me to. Thanks again for your help ��namaste to you and namaste to the babies

  • I’m 34 weeks and have transitioned from weight training to body weight work and this felt so lovely! Just enough to make me feel energized and uplifted. Thank you!

  • 22 weeks pregnant and found your video last week. The perfect way to get back into good movement after taking a break for nasty morning sickness! Thanks for sharing

  • Thank you! I’m 24 weeks and have gained alot of weight! I need to begin exercising and eating better. This was a great start. Thanks for the modifications!

  • I am at 33 weeks and none of these exercises are difficult for me to do. I’ve been doing similar type stuff before I was pregnant, and continued through the first and second trimesters. Unfortunately I know a lot of women that are not pregnant for who this workout would be difficult. You need at assess your own fitness level and see where you are before and during your pregnancy. I think it is important to go to your own pace at all times when pregnant. This is a great workout, and like everything else that is public, you need to take some and leave some if its not for you. So much hate about this video in the comments.. don’t be a hater because you can’t do it.

  • 32.3 weeks pregnant! Found these videos after getting a bit nervous about high morning fasted blood sugar levels. This is my third workout video I’ve done by this channel and I’m feeling good!

  • Having a hard time sleeping in the third trimester, so it’s hard to get moving in the morning. Thanks for posting exercises that get me moving but aren’t too overwhelming:)

  • I am 15 weeks pregnant and found your workouts so comfortable for me. It helps me to keep on track but slowly and feel great everyday. Thank you

  • Very uncomfortable to do and there is no way I could put my knees together with a big third trimester belly. Also pregnant women should not be laying on their backs at this point it’s uncomfortable. I don’t think the instructor has ever been pregnant

  • Thank you Amy. I am currently 33 weeks and with my first, I did all the fitness shennanigans there were (spinnig,
    weights, running, you name it). With my 2nd, getting dressed feels like a marathon:-D:-D I have problems with my symphysis (too much stretching/yoga like you ALWAYS emphasize but I did not listen:-( ) so this workout was perfect!!! I’ll stick to your 3rd trimester ones for the rest of the time. It is hard to accept to slow down so much but at least I try to stay active:-)

  • I’m now 28 weeks and this workout is still pretty light for me but I’m modifying and making it a little harder. I may come back to this when my body starts getting really heavy:-) Great workout!

  • I am 19 weeks preganant and finally gathered the strength to start working out in preganancy. Thoroughly enjoyed the stretches. Thank you!

  • I’m 17 weeks now and just found your videos. I must confess I have never tought that I would like to do workouts during my pregnancy, but I am happy that I have started because I feel so much better after your workouts and my mood is better too.

  • Thank you so much for all the time and effort spent making these videos I look forward to your variety of workouts while pregnant. Thank you

  • I am doing this together with my wife who is in her second trimester. It helps out and I can say that any husbond out there can do it with their spouse and get a nice workout as well, while giving some support to your wife along the way. Really good workout. We have also tried a few of your other videos and they are all worth trying out.

  • Can you direct me to your video on preparing your pelvic floor for delivery and pp? Thank you for this workout! It was perfect for me today. I’m 23 weeks with my second boy.

  • Nikki, I am by no means pregnant, BUT TELL ME WHY when I heard that soft music come in, I got up off my bed and started doing these stretches giiiiiiiiirll lmaooo, I feel good, I recommend to everyone, 10/10 lmaooo

  • Im in a 7 months now for my second baby, but my baby’s head is still on top ang her feet are below my tummy.. what exercise should i need to do? Hope you can answer my question, im really scared to do Caesarian section ��

  • Hi. I’m 31 weeks, 1 day. I did enjoy this video. I struggled on a couple moves like the tricep dip one and laying on my back flat was too uncomfortably but I actually felt motivated after this video which is amazing. I’m only 5ft and I’ve gained 45Ibs most of which seems to be in my stomach so working out has been such a challenge and the pain is real. Thank you for putting up this video.

  • Yes I’m so glad I found your channel,I’m obsessed with working out but had to stop and now finally feeling better and gave this a try..thanks so much will definitely be working out with you more

  • Am I crazy, but 5 workouts each leg for 1 min each is 30 min right there, PLUS the warm up.  Right? Or does she mean to do once? Because she clearly says 3 times.

  • You’re so adorable! It’s great that you knew and motivated yourself to get up and workout. I need to also and I’m not even preg lol. Btw I’m getting married next week, I can’t stop watching your wedding video I’m getting my own soon ������

  • i sit all day at work and man, im just sick of not getting enough exercise while pregnant with my second. Im 28 weeks and tired! i couldn’t finish the video. I did most but im beat! IM DETERMINED!I have been walking everyday for the past week for 30 minutes at least, but I feel like its not enough. Thank you for this work out! its a challenge.

  • Thank you!! 21 weeks pregnant and did not think I would make it through a HIIT workout, but I did! Thank you for the modifications, I used all of them since I have had pelvic floor issues with my last 2 pregnancies. Now to keep the 5 yo and 3 yo from climbing on me during the bridges and down dog sections…

  • I am 27 weeks, I am too lazy to go to the gym. plus I do not know what to do and not do at the gym. Having your videos easily accessible at home, makes it easier to work out. Thank you Amy.

  • finally i can do this on my 36th week of pregnancy i dont usually go to gym or exercise because i dont have a chance, i am so tired always in my work.thank you so much for this video.today i will try this for the first time��

  • Great workout! 33 weeks and made it through taking just one of the modifications. ����‍♀️��️‍♀️ Thank you for all your wonderful videos!!! You’re a lifesaver!!������
