What are some good core stregenthing excerise during pregnancy?

I really need some help if this area. I did not get things back in line after my last pregnancy. So I need to be more proactive this pregnancy. I had a lot of nerve pain my last pregnancy and I thinking strengthening my core will help with this one. Thought and suggestions would be great:)

Yoga, Pilates classes are good core strengtheners if you can go somewhere where they know you are pregnant and can make sure your form is good. Sitting up straight, good posture, focusing on flexing your muscles and holding. Side planks. Doing straight leg lifts while standing (or high knees without jumping by keeping the core engaged - to the front or side). I've learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed T25 and the core work included that doesn't involve crunches or anything to promote diastasis.

I love yoga, but I'm wondering when it would be appropriate to switch to prenatal yoga? Is it safe until the poses start to become uncomfortable?

My chiropractor just gave me a good exercise to strengthen my core. A wall plank. Place your forearms on the wall, feet shoulder width apart a few feet from the wall and lean in. Focus on relaxing your pelvis and back, but keeping your abs engaged.
