Lil Tip: Exercise Ball

If there's one practical piece of workout equipment to purchase after you bring home baby, it's an exercise ball. The soft bouncy ball ($15-26) can be used for strengthening abs and hard-to-reach muscles as well as improving balance and coordination. Best of all, unlike pricey treadmills and elliptical machines, even if you don't end up using the ball, lil ones love to tumble around with them.

The last time I did any ab work during pregnancy, it was on one of these balls. It felt sooo good!

I used it while I was pregnant too!! My daughter sat really low towards the end and the only way I could get her to shift was to sit on the ball and roll my pelvis. (It is also good while in labor, it helps to open your pelvis).
