  • Swimming is my best recommendation. I'm 8 months and it is the ONLY time I feel any relief from this misery. I feel lightweight and small and flexible, and oh so good. Not only does it get your heart rate up, but it's great for your back and will tone all of your muscles. Other than that, I'm not sure. even walking is difficult for me and hurts my back. I'm gonna look back at the answers on this because I need some ideas too!

  • really you should ask your doctor before doing any exercising that late into the pregnancy it's really easy to tear ligaments and such ask your doctor what some good exercises are and they will tell you if you can or cant do it
