So, here we are — as I am writing this I am officially 25-weeks pregnant and it has been quite an experience so far.
You can read all you want, study the materials and get sound advice from friends, but I truly believe you cannot understand pregnancy until you actually go through it yourself. The craziest part about it is that everyone’s pregnancies are so different, and women will tell you that’s even true with multiple children. Despite differing pregnancies among women, one consistent variable is the benefits of prenatal Pilates exercises.
Then we get to the much-debated topic of prenatal Pilates exercises, in which case you hear all kinds of things. I have people ask me almost every day “Can you still do Pilates while pregnant?” or “Are you sure it’s okay for you to lift that?” My response is always yes.
My intention is to workout...
