In general, as the relaxin kicks in, focus on strength in poses rather than using the relaxin to go further in the poses.
6 inch foot separation in the half moon backbend always, and be gentle as the shape of the spine changes
do NOT crank "stomach thighs hips forward" (in any backbending pose)
add 6 inch foot separation in any pose at any time if it feels better in the pelvis
eagle may start to feel a little scrunchy in the pelvis, if it does, don't go as far with the leg wrap (this pose is contraindicated in some yoga traditions - esp. Iyengar)
Head to Knee modification is difficult, so don't forget to focus on the standing leg first
Down dog replaces separate leg head to knee, have someone check your form if you have questions
Locust Pose - on hands and knees - do not collapse in the belly area as you lift the leg. Keep the spine relatively parallel to the floor
Tailor sit for both sets of rabbit. Watch Rabbit. Miss it. :)
Don't scrunch anything in last two poses. This is harder than it seems.
Kapalabhati Breathing is contraindicated for pregnancy. Just do six counts in and six counts out.
This is not a total list of modifications by any means!! Check with a qualified teacher.
