Pregnancy Ab Exercises

Pregnancy workout apparel by Ingrid and Isabel via Bump Style Box
I know many of you are rolling your eyes at the notion of doing abdominal exercises during pregnancy.  I mean, you have a watermelon growing in there, how the heck are you supposed to still work on those muscles?  It’s actually extremely important for you to keep your abdominals strong.  Not just for the support it gives your back during pregnancy, but the strength it will give you during labor to push that sweet baby out, AND it will help you recover faster postpartum.  Here are simple abdominal exercises you should be doing 3 times a week:
1. Squats: 3 sets of 20 reps
2. Seated Extension/Retraction: 40 reps
3. Cat/Cow Pose: 40 reps
4. Alternating Arm/Leg Raise: 30 reps each side
Cheers to a STRONG and healthy pregnancy!!
