This is a great book that covers everything from exercises, health tips, recipes and inspiration. The book is broken down by trimester, postpartum and post baby phase 1 and phase 2 and includes concerns, exercises and helpful hints for each. I love that she included exercises for common pregnancy problems like round ligament pain, leg cramps and carpal tunnel. There is a stroller workout and a diaper bag workout including some great exercises to do with the baby. Personally, I loved the chapters on healthy eating/nutrition during pregnancy and after pregnancy which includes a great meal plan that doesn't require calorie counting. The recipes are quick & delicious including items such as an apple & date breakfast bread pudding, a very tasty and quick pesto pizza and a great black bean, sweet potato and turkey chili.

The book includes stories of real women who have completed Tracey's plan. I am one of her success stories. I started her plan when my son was 9 months old so I lost the pregnancy weight prior to starting her plan but my body shape was different and it was tough fitting into my pre-pregnancy clothes. I was so out of shape and have never enjoyed exercise but her plan was very easy to follow. I quickly lost 12 pounds and toned up and all of my friends and family were so impressed! I was at the weight I was more than 10 years ago!! I am now pregnant with our second baby so I bought this book along with Tracey's Pregnancy System workout DVD (which I am really enjoying!!). It was so nice to start my pregnancy 12 pounds lighter than my previous pregnancy and I know I'll lose it all again. Thanks Tracey!!

I like Tracy's format for workouts (5-10 minute segments that can be done all together or spaced if need be) because you can fit them in and still see results! I have 2 little ones (3 and 1) and am expecting the 3rd. My girls also like to do the exercises with me and since the sets are short and varied (strength and cardio together); it holds their attention.

I am not "uber-fit" but I have completed (and did reasonably well) a sprint-triathlon and a 10k. I find Tracy's workouts to be challenging enough. Her format is such you can make it as challenging or as easy as you need to. I am 32 weeks and have enjoyed having exercises geared toward my trimester.

The book also has interesting pregnancy info.

I got this book, and was really sick and tired during my first trimester, so didn't use it too much. But now that I am in my 2nd trimester, I am using it and LOVE it. I can tell that it is helping me stay in shape and that it will be easier to bounce back after my baby is born. I wish that I had had this book for my first 2 children. I love knowing that the exercises I am doing are safe for pregnancy, but still challenging and making me stronger.

Instead of having separate chapters for food, vitamins, etc the book goes straight into the trimesters and breaks everything down within that, which I liked. Her exercise plan is made up of circuits using hand weights and resistance bands (a total at home workout). She recommends activity for 6 days of the week (3 days strength/core/flexibility circuits, 3 days flexibility & cardio). There are real pictures of each movement in the poses with tips and descriptions of what to do. That being said, they are all compound movements, none of which I've ever done (I've only done more traditional weight lifting moves). So you'd really have to go through them first to see what she is talking about. Each circuit has different moves (none repeated) so there is a lot going on.

The after baby portion is pretty big, with a stroller workout, holding your baby as a weight workout, and a more intense 6 months post-partum workout. The author points out that each circuit is only 6 min that can be split up throughout the day (30 min total) for when you are busy with baby, since she wrote this book for moms who already had kids. So I think this book might be better described as an "after baby" fitness book, or a second baby fitness book. I'm keeping this one along with Mommy Fabulous: Complete Pregnancy Fitness and Nutrition Guide: Designed to Deliver a Fabulous Postpartum Figure (for variety & its focus on pre-baby workouts).

The best thing about this book is that kicks your but and motivate you to exercise! And that's the purpose of this book. Besides exercise's guidance Tracy talks about general pregnancy issues and she gives some general tips and advise. Unfortunately I found the photos with exercises poorly done. Some of the exercises I don't understand how to do them because they are not "idiot proof" ? Anyway, good book to start you think " fit while pregnant" but does not give you a final satisfaction.

I think the most appealing aspect of this book is that it's not just a "fitness" guide. I found this to be a seamless pregnancy guide for the woman for whom fitness and healthy eating are already a lifestyle (or an aspiration!) The author's experiences made her relateable, which is helpful. I like that she admits putting on a few more pounds than she planned and feeling self-conscience. Who wants pre- and postnatal fitness advice from a pregnant popsicle stick? I also think her goals are reasonable and, from the many success profiles included (don't we all love "before" and "after" pictures?)attainable. There are no "flat-abs in 4 weeks" promises. While my doctor side-lined me for the first trimester, I look forward to (hopefully)jumping in to her plan in the 2nd.
