Before I close the chapter on my journey of being a Pregnant Athlete, I have decided to share a few last things.
My Little... 📸☺️snuggled up in the same spot throughout all my videos you have been watching (except he was not breech). Now that he is here, he is my living proof that you can absolutely continue to push and pull moderate to heavy weight while pregnant and birth a 100% healthy and thriving baby (of course only if you were doing so before pregnant). Not to say this was easy 🤦🏼♀️. I went through many pregnant months in the gym with people making offensive comments. "You trying to have that baby prematurely?" and looks of disgust/disapproval as I continued to lift close to the same weight I had before pregnancy.
Mentally I was exhausted from trying to ignore all the ignorance and force myself to concentrate on my own lifts. I knew in the back of my mind continuing to workout through all the negativity I endured would one day pay off. Now, my body is quickly returning to its pre-pregnancy state and my child is healthy as can be!
Oh can I also mention, my baby was born with almost the strength of a 1 month old. The nurses and pediatrician were amazed to learn that he could do a half push-up off my chest and raise his head high the DAY he was born... 💪🏼. Wonder were he gets that from 🤔💁🏼💪🏼
Last 2 pics are controversial 🤷🏼♀️ but they are MY post natal MUST HAVES. 👌🏻
-I had my placenta encapsulated. I take it with food.
-I immediately wore my postpartum girdle after delivering my placenta. I only took it off to shower for the first 3 weeks. .
Thanks for all the support loves 💓
