I'm not sure if you do intros on this board, but hello! We are 12w6d with our first, and both active people. I searched to see if this topic was already covered, and didn't see it, so forgive me if I am in fact in duplicate. I am wondering about core exercises in pilate, or in general. I have a pilates DVD which includes a section with modified core movements, on your back but propped up with 1-2 pillows. I hear some people say this is a terrible idea, but it seems if they are modified and don't cause discomfort they must be safe? Any info? I plan to ask my midwife when I see her next week.
