    Didn't think Pilates would be something to start while pregnant, maybe I'm getting mixed up but it is very abdominals based, would do a bit of research on that, or ask your ante natal advisors.

    There are pilates classes though, on during the day, I've seen the ad in Sainsbury's

    This gives the classes and times. It also says that Pilates is excellent during pregnancy - I know a lot of the Physio exercises I had post-pregnancy (I had SPD and it took a long time to get everything stabilised) were Pilates based. I couldn't do any during pregnancy as I was falling to bits though... :rotfl:

    Thanks, Thats the reason i want to try Pilates, i had my 3rd child 3 years ago and was hoping for one more :P, so thought id get the Spd checked out ( i had it with my 3rd and it got so bad that i was in crutches). When i got it checked by a Chiro 2 weeks ago, she said that my body is still weak. And today i spoke to a physio friend and she mentioned Pilates. Lets hope it helps :D

    I am not agree with you ailuro, becuase Pilates is a simple form of exercise and consider one of the best forms of exercise for pregnant women. Pilates exercise will not put strain on joint or back. In fact the back will be strengthened as will the stomach and muscles around the pelvic area - allowing for an easier pregnancy, delivery and recovery.
    After four month body is changing and expanding at the same time energy level are generally high and in this stage exercise should be maximized advantage for every following month.
    After six month women tend to feel heavy and uncomfortable, and sometimes cause back pain. The additional weight of the body can throw center of the balance, legs can become swollen and various vein can develop. A developed circulation allows an oxygen supply to the womb and this is less distressing for the baby.
