Join me as we journey through pregnancy together, keeping our bodies fit and healthy as we prepare to give birth.
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.
* I find it helps relieve and reduce my lower back tightness and pain. I enjoy the workout and look forward to doing it at the end of a stressful work day sitting in an office chair all day.
* If you're unfit, you might find this a bit tough, but definitely give it a try as it's so important to exercise during pregnancy.
* On the other hand, this DVD alone would probably not be enough exercise for me or for someone who is fit. I think it works best if you combine it with some other activities, like a class, or some walking/swimming - but then again I'm not usually an exercise DVD person!
- If you're used to cardio-based workouts and are extremely/moderately fit going into pregnancy, these workouts will seem boring and fairly easy to you. If I was feeling good, I would do the video AND a cardio workout. However, as Tracy mentions in the videos, the goal is to keep your muscles toned and moving during pregnancy without taking away from the baby. You have time to get in great shape and fit after pregnancy but the goal during pregnancy is to stay healthy and active for you AND your little one.
- There is only one DVD per month of pregnancy. If you are used to having variety in your workouts, this will seem VERY boring to you. Some days I searched Youtube for pregnancy workouts or went on long walks because I needed more variety. The DVD's also range from an hour to a half hour. The hour workouts can definitely get boring after doing them every day.
- HOWEVER, the workouts are very effective if done correctly. A lot of Tracy's arm and leg movements are very specific and if you don't hit the move precisely, you won't feel the exercise as much. If it doesn't feel a little challenging, you're probably not doing it right. She does a great job explaining the movements and angles you're supposed to hit. But again, I have done her workouts before and have experience with her movements.
Overall, this may not be the most exciting workout, but I think it's great for pregnancy. My goal is not to set any records or be in the greatest shape of my life. My goal is to provide the best for my baby and to feel good and healthy during my pregnancy. I think this video is the perfect combination of caution during pregnancy while still providing the challenge your body needs.
