What exercise do you do in the third trimester and how often?
I work full time, leaving in the dark and getting home in the dark and I just want to eat dinner and go to bed! Really struggling to find motivation.

Also curious, i hit the 3rd trimester tomorrow and the most exercise I've been doing is lifting food to my mouth and waking to the toilet 50 times a day..

I started walking in the last week to help baby come. That's it

I have not done any, I'm pretty uncomfortable now. I do a fair bit of incidental walking though, and housework, hopefully that counts! Oh and my pelvic floors

Subbing. I do none beyond general walking when at work or taking DD to the park and play dates. I bought some,pregnancy pilates disks at the start if my pregnancy, one for each trimester and 1 for PP. I did the first trimester one once!
Maybe I should consider getting them out again. :s

I'm definitely not up for walking these days. I've struggled with that from about halfway through this pregnancy.
What I do every few days (but should be doing everyday) is lunges, squats and arm weights as well as some back stretches. These were given to me by the Physio so OK to do as long as it's gentle and not forced too far.
I was enjoying our pool too but the heating is broken so it's too cold. :-(

Thanks for those ideas cat, I probably should do those at home every day as well.

Thought I'd elaborate in case you find it useful. My routine is:
- 10 x sit to stand - up and down from a bench seat OR 10 x squats (lower yourself from standing until your bottom touches the bench. Knees must be over your toes
- 10 x lunges - don't need to go to low but make sure technique is good
- 10 x bicep curls
- 10 x arms by sides to arms level with shoulders
- 10 each side x punch outs
- 5 x cat curls
- 5 each side x thread the needle - start on hands and knees and slowly thread one arm through under your torso until your head bends towards the floor. Then slowly retract the arm, keep it outstretched and lift until your fingers are pointing towards the ceiling
- 5-10 x pelvic rocking - gently flatten lower back then return to neutral curve
- 2 x upper back stretch - clasp hands behind your back and gently stretch for 15 seconds
- 2 each side x neck stretch - take one ear to shoulder for a gentle stretch and hold for 15 seconds
