MONTH 1: This is your first month of pregnancy. You’re likely to often feel tired. Together we’ll take it slow, listening to our bodies and finding our center.
MONTH 2: You’re starting to really feel your pregnancy now, and nausea may be an issue. We’ll work on range of motion, stretching and keeping our muscles strong and in proper alignment.
MONTH 3: We’ll tone and stretch with a range of arm and leg exercises. Plus we’ll continue to strengthen our abs while this is still a possibility.
MONTH 4: Hurray! You’re now entering your second trimester. Hopefully your nausea is gone. We’ll focus on lifting your butt and keeping you looking healthy.
MONTH 5: It’s month five, and your energy is back. We’ll continue to focus on lifting your butt, while we keep you moving and feeling strong—without overdoing it!
MONTH 6: You’re recognizably pregnant now. We’ll continue to keep you connected to your muscles, allowing your body to do what it needs for the pregnancy.
MONTH 7: You’re entering your third trimester. Your baby has grown a lot. Now we’ll concentrate on preparing our bodies for the birth. We’ll focus on circulation and staying strong and flexible.
MONTH 8: The baby is really growing. We’ll continue to move in order to keep our energy up and stay connected to our bodies, which are starting to feel a little foreign.
MONTH 9: We’re preparing for birth. The goal is to open up your hips. We’ll reduce the complexity of our movements but continue to work on circulation as we wait for our blessings to arrive.

This DVD is brilliant. I love it. I am already fit and exercise about 4 times a week with intense cardio, cycling, weights and pilates. Tracey understands what is appropriate for someone who was fit before pregnancy and wants to continue exercising safely. There is no cardio per se - it's all strength training, but it does get your heart rate up.
For me this DVD is perfect because I do a special prenatal exercise twice a week (fitball cardio and weights), one pilates class, then I can just do this DVD once a week or when I can't make it to class.
* Tracey is kind and encouraging. She cues the exercises clearly and doesn't talk too much. It's great that she is actually pregnant in this video.
* The environment that she exercises in is pleasant and you can turn the background music off if you just want Tracey's voice.
* 1 DVD for each month makes sense as your body changes so much each month, as do the rules about what you can and can't do.
* All the exercises feel 'right' to me. Nothing feels strange or unsafe. I trust the exercises to be safe in pregnancy. There is no lying on your back or traditional ab work.
* There are little interviews and extras about common issues in pregnancy which I really enjoyed watching. You hear from other (famous) mothers and an obstetrician and they all seem to give very good and encouraging advice.
* It really works to help keep your legs, butt, arms, shoulders and upper back strong. My muscles are (pleasantly) sore the next day. The exercises work your abs indirectly to help you keep a strong core.Read more ›
My first trimester was exhausting and I didn't have the energy to exercise much. I came home and went to bed as soon as my four year-old allowed. I started on the Tracy Anderson series right around my 11th week and have been doing it since then and am now 37 weeks. I will amend this as needed.
YOU'LL NEED: a small towel (a hand towel will suffice), two three-pound weights, an exercise mat (should be thick, or your knees might hurt a bit; I use folded blanket to increase the thickness), a chair and some space; I really only need about two or three feet of space surrounding my mat.
You won't use the towel or the chair for all months but be aware that you will need them handy. You will definitely need the three-pound weights and will use them in every month. You don't use more than three-pound weights because you do a high number of reps with each set and you don't want too much blood flow to be diverted from your growing baby. Also, have water available nearby because she times out the moves and the rest periods so your heart rate stays increased but you don't have time to leave your area to get water.
LENGTH: About 40-45 minutes long.
PROGRAM: Five minutes of stretching, 10-15 minutes of arms, then 15 minutes of legs/butt then more stretching. Don't skip the stretching. The arm moves are typically two parts.Read more ›
