    Default Pregnancy Exercise DVD for Beginners - Recommendations please

    Hi Ladies
    I am only 5 weeks and would like to order a pregnancy workout dvd and would love your recommendations.
    To be honest I'm not that fit these days. I'm currently walking 30 minutes each day but I have very weak core and back muscles. I get a fair bit of lower and general back pain when my core isn't strong - like now!

    I have done some research and have come up with two options
    Tracey Anderson - The Pregnancy Project. I'm a bit nervous this may be to advanced? Has anyone else started it having not been to the gym for a year before?
    Shiva Rea - Prenatel Yoga.

    I don't normally like yoga cause it's too intense on my back.

    I would love to hear your suggestions or feedback on the above DVD's.

    Much love xx

    I had lots of back pain when I was pregnant with dd. I went to prenatal yoga classes and bought a shiva rea pregnancy yoga DVD. It's definitely helps with aches and pains. The DVD I have gives different options depending on your level and how far into your pregnancy you are. I have other DVDs by shiva rea, they are great.

    If you like dance related exercise then I would recommend Ballet Beautiful's Ballet Baby series.

    Davina McCall did a pre and post pregnancy dvd. I haven't done it but I have some of her other fitness dvds and I really enjoy them.
