Need I say more? Let’s have a little chat about our cute little preggo bods!
As you know from my birth story, I felt great during all of my pregnancy. I ate 5-6 small meals a day and I lifted 4-5 days a week. Not much changed in my routine, however my body definitely changed more than I anticipated, and I’m not just talking about the growing belly. Despite my efforts of continuing to lift fairly heavy (but safe, of course), my body started storing fat in place of that hard earned muscle I had! The first to go was my butt, I noticed a little less muscle, and a lot more fat (cough, cottage cheese, cough) and my boyfriend can attest to this LOL. I got saddlebags for the first time in my life. My inner thighs looked way less toned and my big ol’ quads shrank in half. I was fairly built from being an athlete all my life (if you count competitive cheer.. I do!), so this was a bit of a shock to me. I was so in love with being pregnant so my changing body wasn’t the end of the world.
