When I first got pregnant I was so excited to be a mom, but like many women, I was nervous about how pregnancy was going to affect my body. You always hear people talking about losing baby weight and what a challenge that can be as a new mom. I felt selfish worrying about it, but I didn’t want to lose my pre-baby body. I knew I wanted to stay on top of it from the beginning and stay active throughout my pregnancy, so I turned to Lindsay Brin’s pregnancy DVDs.
I love how easy they are to incorporate into your day with quick workouts from the comfort of your living room. Let’s face it — pregnancy makes you tired! Some days it’s hard to make yourself do anything, but Lindsay’s workouts make it easy to motivate yourself. And toward the end when I thought I’d become less and less active, I actually found myself doing the yoga every. single. day. I had so much pressure in my hips, pelvis and back that getting up to move, stretch and mentally connect with my baby each morning became the highlight of my day. I felt healthy through my whole pregnancy and it even helped prepare me for labor and delivery.
I gained a total of 25 pounds (which was healthy for my size) and lost it all within 8 weeks. Now I’m actually 10 pounds lighter than when I got pregnant! So yes, my body has changed after having a baby, but it’s all for the better — fears averted! If you are pregnant I highly recommend these DVDs whether you want to strictly follow the meal plan and workout schedule or just use them 1-2 a week. Feeling healthy and having enough energy to keep up with my baby is 100% worth it in my opinion!
