Supermum performs kickboxing just two days before giving birth
Expectant mother Andrea Allen was captured throwing left and right punches and kicks while stood in the bedroom of her home in Queen Creek, Arizona
This supermum performed an energetic kickboxing routine while in labour with her fourth child.
Expectant mother Andrea Allen from Arizona was still keeping up her workouts, performing a high-intensity kickboxing routine — in her home in Queen Creek — with her enormous baby bump.
Video of the now mother-of-four, who was captured throwing left and right punches and kicks, has gone viral, with scores of her followers expressing awe at her stamina. The video was recorded by her husband Paul on October 3, when he entered the bedroom to find his wife — dressed in a sports bra and hot pants — cranking out the exercise.
Apparently, the mum-of-four was 3cm dilated when the video was taken, giving birth to her daughter and fourth child less than 24 hours later.
Andrea has been a personal trainer for five years and has been running her online fitness program Deliciously Fit n Healthy for three years. Her and Paul’s three other children are twin girls Ella and Olivia, both five, and two-year-old Camry.
As I wait for this baby to come I think back to where I started & how much the body adapts for pregnancy. Hormones allow your body to stretch and grow to make room and of course make your emotions run high too. Making a baby is hard work. It’s tiring, painful during pregnancy and after, makes you nauseated, & sore. It takes time to recovery plus you feel like you are a marshmallow man living among stick people during. But really in the end, nothing beats holding that sweet little baby. Nothing beats the first skin to skin contact as you soothe your little ones scared crying voice. That’s why I am anxious. I just want to meet her and know she is alright and safe in my arms. I am thankful for everyday she let me carry her for the last 10 months even though I didn’t always act like it. I know it’s a miracle...... just anxious to meet you baby girl ❤️ My Ultimate Pregnancy Guide is up on my site the link is in my bio @deliciouslyfitnhealthy .Progress photos from non preggo online clients @dfh.training.pics
According to a Daily Mail report, Andrea said: “I was already three days late so all of my followers were giving me ideas of how to induce labour. My contractions weren’t too bad at the time, so I decided to do some kickboxing.
“I’ve been a fitness instructor for 14 yeas now, so I am used to exercising every day. My family weren’t surprised as the day before I gave birth to our twins I was kickboxing too.”
Two days after the video, on October 5, she returned to Instagram to announce the birth of her little girl, Eastyn May, who was born on October 4.
She is here 10-4-18 AND we haven’t finalized a name 🤦🏼♀️!!! Plus the aftermath was a bit crazy which I will explain. Labor went well it took a while to get going but once my doctor arrived and I could start pushing I pushed for 2-5minutes and she was out so fast and smooth! All that belly bumping, TVA and pelvic floor work pays off! No tearing💃 but some stretching inside like a rug burn kinda. The Pediatrician came and took her blood to verify if she has Turners Syndrome or not but we won’t get the results for 1-2 weeks but she looks perfect to me 😍 with no visual signs. ❤️ About 7 hours after labor & feeling really great I hemorrhaged. I did with the twins as well and needed a blood transfusions with them.It felt so random as it was hours later but it scared the crap out of me. We had 6 nurses and 2 doctors in here trying to stop the blood and clots. They called for a massive blood transfusion (I lost 1850 cc which is 1.85 liters just 150 cc less than when I had one with the twins) but when they checked my blood levels they were surprised they were ok still. When pregnant you go into labor with more blood but I must have even more blood than the average as my levels only dropped to a 9-10 even after that much blood loss. (Normal is an 11ish) We had been praying for no complications and I know those prayers were answered as they were shocked I didn’t need a transfusion based on how much I lost. Today my blood pressure is a bit lower but nothing to crazy and I have already been up and moving around and not feeling dizzy or faint so things are looking great. ❤️ Love you guys. Thanks for cheering me on and I promise her name is coming!!!
