  • I did them the whole pregnancy... I would talk to your dr though.

  • You can do them throughout the pregnancy you just can't be flat on your back later on in pregnancy but there are lots of ab/core exercise that you can do where you don't need to be on your back. But obviously check with your dr anyway.
