I saw a dvd "pregnancy yoga for dummies" I actually want to try it when I become pregnant. You could probably get it off ebay pretty cheap. But I've never tried or known anyone to use it, just an idea.

I love the idea of yoga, I think because it is more stretching techniques it will really help, it will also help you with your breathing as well...I would say go for it, just as long as you are comfortable and dont feel like you are working too hard or straining too much...just my thought. Good luck with finding a good pregnancy/workout routine Smile
