Prego-Fit & Fabulous
Happily Ever After, $17.95
What it is: This video works yoga, Pilates and stretching into an easy workout, even into the third trimester.
Who leads the workout: Jillian Moriarty, a physical-therapy expert, certified Pilates instructor and mom.
Approximate length of workout: 40 minutes
Equipment you'll need: small ball (playground size) (Note: The DVD says a pillow will assist with routines. We found that really doesn't cut it.)
What we liked: This low-impact video focuses on toning rather than high-energy cardio. During even the last few days of the third trimester, you could do this workout.
What might have been better: Music! The lack of music and slow pace of the video make this 40-minute video seem more like an hour and 40 minutes. The sleepy speed won't cut it after the baby arrives (even though the video makers say this is good for postnatal exercise, too).
