am 27 weeks and brother is getting married soon and want to tone up a bit (if thats possible!) but also want to get back to being a bit fitter in time for birth/afterwards. I have had to stop swimming due to SPD as can only do breaststroke and there arent any kind of pregnancy classes at all near me.

So decided a dvd would be best so i can do it whilst ds1 is asleep. I want one that isnt boring and will actually make me feel like its worthwhile if you know what i mean?

Try the Davina McCall one - apparently pretty easy if you're used to exercise but challenging enough if you're not used to it. Be careful with your SPD though to ensure you dont make it worse.

Pregnancy pilates is also good but you need to be careful with SPD about your moves.

can't recommend one personally - my post-natal pilates dvd is still in it's wrapper and I'm now 8wks pg with no2 - [lazy grin emoticon needed] - but am planning on getting the pregnancy pilates dvd by the same woman - it's by lindsey jackson and available on amazon. i also think I'll get the davina one as mentioned by dinky - there are 3 reviews on amazon and they say it's very gentle so should suit your current levels of exercise [tried to say that in a subtle way grin]
