Fitness: Squats + Rotations, 10-20 reps
Stand in a comfortable wide squat (sticking your booty slightly back) with your arms out in front (holding an exercise band or hand towel). Exhale as you stand (keeping your glutes engaged), rotating towards your right as your left leg and toe pivot with you, allowing you to rotate your hips easily and to reach your arms up overhead. You should feel a light core connection, your booty working, and a lengthening of your spine. Inhale as you return to your starting squat position. Then rotate to your left, making sure that your right leg and toe pivot with you.

Superfood of the Day: Eggs
Eggs are a great source of protein and amino acids for you and baby-to-be. Also, eggs provide omega-3 fats that babies need to help develop their brain and enhance their vision. Enjoy eggs in an omelet or frittata. Also, hardboiled eggs cut up in a salad can be an extra treat!
Yoga: Supported Yoga Squat
