Not what I expected
on June 2, 2009
Yes, this book is informative and helpful, but it's not exactly what I had been thinking it would be. When I became pregnant I was a bit scared of what exercises I could do that would not put the baby in danger in any way, so I bought this book thinking it would have routines and what machines to use at a gym and stuff (think the Body Sculpting Bible workout books...). It has SOME of that but more it has information I did not really need, like go buy a sports bra that fits correctly and where to find a pool in your community. It also has a few stretchs to do, but I did not really find them helpful. Instead I ended up buying a pregnancy workout DVD for a more direct "ok, these are the exact movements you should be doing" instead of a generalized safe practices guide (don't go jogging between noon and 3 in the afternoon). It's not a horrible book, I just didn't get a whole lot out of it.
