okay. obviously all your muscles are connected one way or another. however try to use as little of your core as possible. no hardcore ab workouts. my mom kept up with me nd my older bro with our workouts all throughout her pregnancy and now she has muscle separation in her abdominal muscles. like a literal separation between the two sides of her abs. nd after giving birth, she couldn't work her abs for over six months until her muscles heal. don't wanna scare you, just be aware lol

If you worked out before getting pregnant, its safe to use weights up to 25lbs

but seriously. no crunches nd sit ups nd stuff. lol it's not worth it afterwards.
after giving birth I'm gonna hit the gym haaaaaard cuz I cannot stand being "big"
even though everyone says its all baby, in my head its still just fat lol.

We'll see how I end up after this one lol.. But I dnt do exercises. Maybe thats how my body is.. And maybe U can go to a YMCA i heard U can do so many things in there maybe that will help U out too. Or Yeah Yoga is not a bad idea :-D
