Seeing as I pretty much just watch Disney Junior during the day I hadn't heard a thing. I instantly Googled it.
In case you too didn't catch the story it goes something like this.... Lea-Ann Ellison, 35, mother of two posted this photo/caption. It went viral almost instantly drawing a number of comments, shares and critics.
"Eight months pregnant with baby number three and CrossFit has been my sanity. I have been CrossFitting for 2 ½ years and strongly believe that pregnancy is not an illness, but a time to relish your body's capabilities to kick ass."
As you can imagine people had a lot to say about this photo. Some were encouraging and impressed while others were down right disgusted and mean.
Pregnant women exercising seems to be such a touchy subject. In fact my interview with a prenatal exercise instructor and OBGYN nurse was and still is my most visited post on my blog and you guys had a lot to say about it.
I of course, have my own opinion but I really am interested in what you think of this. Before you pass judgement know that Ms. Ellison is a form bodybuilder who has been crossfitting for over two years, she admitted to reducing the weight once we found out she was pregnant and I believe, although can't confirm, that she had her doctor's approval.
So mom's, non-mom's, moms-to-be, men...what are your thoughts? Would you or have you lifted like this while pregnant? Crossfit when expecting? Why? Why not?
