You should consult a physician about that. Don't take advice from anyone on here. To my knowledge you shouldn't do any abs while in your second tri. I've heard speed walking is the best exercise while your pregnant. But then again I am not a dr. Good luck. And congratulations.

Pretty much none. Stretching is about as safe as you can go concerning and when pregnant, I have 3 kids and it's just not highly recommended, enjoy being pregnant and workout your abs 3-6 weeks after baby

Have you talked to your doctor about swimming? It could be a viable option, not just for your abs, but whole body without any negative impact on your joints. But 1st ask your physician.

I do alot of walking when I was pregnant with 3 of my kids. It will help u out when u give birth to the baby. After u have baby, wait 6 weeks before u start exercising.
