Let me first tell you about myself (so you can see who is reading this book). I'm 30, a vegetarian, (training to be) an endurance athlete, and have studied nutrition to the Nth degree in order to have a healthy family that thrives. My husband and I decided to try to get pregnant this January. By April I was signing up for marathons and in the best shape of my life. I also found out I was pregnant :)

I know the exact science in regard to the exercise and diet I need to function at my best, but now that I am 3 months pregnant, I have no idea what is safe and what is not safe as far as exercise goes.
I searched online for articles and blogs and found nothing helpful, except for Lindsay's book (at this point). I just got it a week ago and am not yet done, but so far I love it. The nutrition part is excellent, it has very sound advice - not a lot of pregnancy books go into such great detail about diet, I really like that about this book. Additionally, the exercises and explanations behind the importance/reason for doing them are great. The descriptions are accurate and the cute images are helpful.

I really, really enjoy this book. I do not plan to have any more children, but I will certainly share this book with other expectant mothers.

I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant (first time). I'm really glad I bought this book because I can customize the difficulty of the workouts, and they feel like actual workouts.

If you were using the Jillian Michaels DVDs prior to pregnancy, these are like an easier version of JM's workouts: circuits with simple moves instead of compounds so your heart rate doesn't get too elevated, interspersed with cardio intervals, a yoga cool down, and some core work. I was using the JM DVDs and this is the best thing I've found for pregnancy that gives a full-body workout with weights and cardio. You do have to read through the workouts and turn pages as you exercise, which is kind of a minus, but this also means you can put on your own music and can do extra sets if you feel like it, or cut a section short if you're short on time.

I think it would benefit from more graphics, such as a chart on one page that lists the moves and reps for each exercise so you don't have to turn pages once you are used to the moves. I will probably write up a chart on my own, but it wouldn't have been that hard to provide one.

To respond to viewers who had a hard time understanding the exercises based on the pictures and descriptions, I had no problem at all, but I have some experience with weight training and am familiar with the essentials. If you did want to follow the routines in this book, a single session with a trainer at your gym could teach you all of the exercises with proper form.

In general, I'm thrilled that I picked up this book and prefer it to most prenatal DVDs because it feels the most like exercises I used to do before getting pregnant.

I am expecting my 5th child, and have been pretty much an exercise-phobe my entire life, and because of that have watched the numbers on the scale increase steadily. A former skinny girl who could eat whatever I wanted and not gain an ounce, I was shocked when I saw that my pre-pregnancy weight was considered overweight! I was determined to keep my weight gain for this pregnancy under my typical 50-60 lbs, so I bought Lindsay's trimester specific dvd's.

When I found out that Lindsay was publishing a book on exercising during pregnancy, as well as getting in shape afterwards, I had to have it! In fact, I ordered both the Kindle version, and the softcover so that I could keep a copy to read during breaks at work!

What I love about this book is that it not only includes realistic exercises that can be done in a realistic period of time during the day, but ideas for nutrition that do not limit you to salads with no dressing. She understands that people actually like to eat, and eat foods that taste good! There are several recipes that are easy to make, and pleasing to everyone in the family so you do not need to eat special "diet" food while drooling over what the rest of your family is consuming.

As a beginner, I did not find that her workouts were impossible to do, as I have found with some other workouts, yet she gives alterations that you can make as someone like me begins to make some progress in their level of fitness. I believe that these exercises would be challenging enough for someone who is currently very active, as well. There are also accommodations for those of us who have diastasis recti.

I have been reading this book for the past few weeks. I'm in my second trimester, I couldn't find the motivation to work out in my first trimester. The first couple chapters are about health/eating right/what not to do and eat, etc. She breaks this book down by trimester with different exercises for each (lots to choose from, in case you don't feel comfortable doing some). She gives a suggested weekly exercise plan. I haven't read past the 3rd trimester but this book is great! It also mentions the things that you are supposed to stay away from while pregnant that my doctor didn't tell me. Highly recommended.
