What is a good pregnancy exercise?

Pilates for Pregnancy: Spine Twist

Sit on an exercise ball or a chair and extend your arms out to the sides, at shoulder height. Exhale as you gently turn your torso to the right, drawing the ribcage to the opposite hip and look at your right hand. Exhale and repeat on the other side. Repeat eight to ten times on each side. A tip: to make sure your torso is doing the turning work (and not your shoulders or neck), keep looking ahead, with your chin in line with your breastbone.
