I would have sent What to Expect When Your Expecting Workout to Ashley, but it just showed up on my doorstep. Usually brands ask me who to send the item too, this one just showed up, but I felt that it still deserves a mention. Pregnant women have New Year resolutions too. I put on so much weight when I was pregnant because I didn’t exercise and I always ate like I was eating for two.
Reviewers on Amazon love this DVD.

I love that the different workouts are broken down into 10 minutes… this way to can do a few of them and have time in between to check on my toddler to make sure everything is ok before starting the next workout. The best thing is I actually feel like I got a good workout without exhausting myself. It’s so important to keep active while pregnant and this dvd makes it possible for a full time working mom, housekeeper, cook, wife to be able to stay active 🙂
I consider myself physically active, and when I became pregnant things changed. My usual routines became unbearable. This workout DVD allows you to take advantage of 10 minute workouts, from cardio to light strength to stretching, all with Pilates and yoga influence. I feel like I am targeting the areas of my body which are becoming weak and flabby because of the pregnancy, and this makes for a really satisfying workout. If you don’t have 40 minutes, switch your workouts to 10 minutes a piece throughout the day. Either way, there is something about starting a workout that is only 10 minutes that makes me want to do more and more…
I just bought this dvd today and I’m not going to lie I was a bit questionable on it because I thought it was going to be super easy like the workout video I just bought the week before, but after doing some of the workouts today I must say I completely love this workout video. I like how there are different types of cardio and strength workouts so I wont have to do the same thing ever day. I also love how its actually makes me work up a sweat and it made for all trimesters with women from their 1st trimester in the video to about to pop and of course some of the workouts have water downed options for those who are farther along. I would recommend this to anyone it really is a great work out at a really great price.
