A pregnant fitness fanatic has boasted of pumping iron just hours before giving birth.
Superfit Meghan Leatherman lifted weights on the day she went into labour and broke records in the final days of pregnancy.
In the photo above the 33-year-old – who was 9 months pregnant and dilated to 1cm at the time – can be seen lifting a heavy weight at her home town gym in Phoenix, Arizona
She didn’t let her huge baby bump stop get in the way of her grueling CrossFit fitness regime – which combines weightlifting, gymnastics and cardio activities.
As well as going to the gym FOUR times a week, Meghan continued to walk her dog for three miles a day and go on a four-mile hike through the mountains every week.
But far from doing herself or her first baby damage, Meghan, a marketing and communications consultant, insists they are both healthier for it and her pregnancy was actually EASIER than it would have been otherwise.
Now she is settling in to life as a mum after giving birth to 6 lb, 11 oz daughter, Florence Germaine, on May 3.
But she expects to be back at the gym again in just THREE weeks.
She told the Sun: “Being fit helped me conceive in the first place – I never considered giving it up.”
