  • you can in the first few months. I did. But then when it gets to the point when its uncomfortable to lay on your back then that's when you stop.

  • I've heard that it's ok up until 14 wks. You could try reverse crunches.

  • I did crunches up until my son was born (I'm not a fan of full sit ups) . My doctor said it was ok as long as it didn't hurt and if it did to stop.
