When I was 26 weeks pregnant with Cole, I filmed my Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout DVD. The Fit Pregnancy DVD includes the cardio, arm, butt, legs, and core circuits that I did consistently through my pregnancy. After the DVD was produced, I continued doing the workout until the day I delivered. My goal was to prevent some of the common aches and pains associated with pregnancy, and stay strong for labor and delivery. If you read my labor and delivery post, you know that I popped Cole out with one push and was feeling great a few days after I delivered. I was able to start leading boot camps at 2 weeks postpartum, and at 2 months postpartum, I feel fabulous.
I had my 6 week postpartum check up this week (a couple of weeks late), and my doctor was very impressed with how quickly I recovered. My abs are already very strong, and I am at my pre-pregnancy level of fitness. My husband even says that he thinks my outer obliques look better now that they did before I got pregnant with Cole! And if the hubs is happy — I’m happy 🙂
A lot of ladies see me carrying Cole and Emma and ask me how I “bounced back” so quickly. The answer — my Fit Pregnancy DVD! I am now doing the advanced version of the workout (my workout partner, Mallory, demonstrates the advanced moves in the DVD), and it has helped me get right back to my pre-pregnancy size and fitness level.
If you are pregnant and have any questions about my Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout, please let me know. I’d be happy to answer them for you. I love hearing from my Instagram or Facebook followers who are doing the workout DVD and staying fit throughout pregnancy. I even have some husbands who are doing it with their wives. It’s so fun to be able to kick people’s butt’s from afar 🙂
BUT, here’s where it gets even more fun! I am getting ready to film a Body After Baby Boot Camp Workout DVD in two weeks. I CANNOT wait! It’s going to be a full-hour workout with insane moves — and it will be sure to whip anyone into shape. The quality will be better, the moves will be better, and Cole will make some guest appearances. Can’t wait until it’s done so I can offer it to you for purchase!
I still can’t believe Cole is 2 months old! He is such a good baby. Cole has been a fairly good sleeper from day 1, and is now waking up once at night for me to feed him. He is probably a little over 12 lbs (up from 7.9 birth weight), and soooo tall. He’s definitely going to be an athlete. Cole loves to smile and watch his big sister, Emma. He also likes to be in the swing.
