Sculpt take 2!

I've been looking forward to starting sculpt since I signed up over a month ago so was so disappointed to wake up on Monday feeling rubbish having caught a cold. Not off to the best start as a result but determined to get back into it once I've fully recovered.
This will be a very different program for me as I'm currently 5 months pregnant with my first baby. Exercise wise, I'm still running about once a week and brisk walking every day which I think will be my cardio. I'm very keen to get into some more strength work as I've been super lazy about this since the first trimester which was mostly spent on the sofa feeling dreadful.
My goals for this program are to stay mindful with the diet which I have been super relaxed about recently - I've been very careful to make sure I'm including everything I need for a healthy pregnancy but have also been indulging in a lot of marmite toast and treats too. I'm keen not to put on too much weight which I know will be hard to lose after the baby's born but mostly I want to maintain strength and fitness to help me reach my goal of having an event free, natural birth and good recovery afterwards.
High intensity cardio and most abdominal work is off the cards for me at the moment but I will be doing as much of the strength and bar work that I can.
