Doing squats

Would it be ok to do squats at 39 weeks pregnancy? I don't want to sound like a grumpy pregnant woman but I would like for my baby to arrive already. I definitely dont want to go beyond my due date.

yes squats help open pelvis and help push baby down its recommended you do the all during pregnancy

I wish I would of known that! Man my pelvis never opened due to a disease I have (it affects my bones and cartilage) I wonder if squares would have helped because I'm having hell with my hips and I'm 35 weeks with my third.

I do lots of squats at work cause it hurts my belly too much to bend. Good to know it will actually help my pregnancy.

Gonna try this...I'm down for anything at this point that helps me through delivery.

Squat and bounce on a yoga ball.  It's not as tough to do and still allows your pelvis and legs to spread in a natural way.  It even helped with my sciatic nerve issue.
