Pregnant woman lifting weights

Anyone who’s ever waddled through nine months of pregnancy would be wowed by the sight of a mom-to-be at 40 weeks, dead-lifting weight as part of a Crossfit regime.

Women who remain active throughout pregnancy have less risk for gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, and preeclampsia. Lifting heavy things during pregnancy is dangerous to you and your baby,” Natalie Rose wrote.
