I'm a fitness-minded mom of two and have another on the way. I work out every day of the week, a simple 30 minute circuit training session that includes strength training, cardio, and abs. I'm more fit now than I've ever been in my life, and I'd like to continue working out throughout this pregnancy to keep my muscles strong and to keep my cardiovascular system in good shape, in hopes that it will make the pregnancy and L&D easier overall. I'm currently 5 weeks along (brand new news!) and am wondering specifically about the ab workouts. Is there a certain time of the pregnancy where I should stop doing crunches? Is it safe to continue with them until my belly just doesn't allow it anymore? I'd love your opinions. Thanks a bunch!
