    Yeah, let's not forget that doctors are not fitness experts. They are illness and drug experts. She probably got a quote from her doctor to shield at least some of the public blow but it's likely she knows more about weightlifting and safety therein compared to (probably) most doctors. They can't make too many recommendations or they'll get into trouble if someone misinterprets their advice and does something wrong.

    This woman is doing nothing wrong... except maybe proving that you don't have to be a weak person. Ever. Let's see how amazingly healthy that baby will be compared to most people who drink and smoke while pregnant and wonder why their child has an attention problem when they're 12 years old.

    She is showing people how strong you can be and how amazing the human body is, and most especially in this case, a woman's body. If anything this should be taken as inspiration, since obviously she's not showing injuries happening; she is showing herself WINNING.

    Good for her, and good for you if you are inspired by this. (y)

    Yes it is okay to exercise while pregnant but I have always heard (from doctors) not to do any type of heavy lifting (which I would think includes lifting weights at the gym) so I do disagree with this however I still believe it is safe to exercise while pregnant.

    None of the articles about this share what her doctor told her to do. If it's fine with her doctor, what business is it of anyone else's?

    When I was pregnant , I went to Curves until I was 5 months, Taekwondo until I was 8 months and worked until I was 9 months. And I delivered a healthy son who will be 6 in December. I don't see the problem with her weight lifting.

    If, as it says, she has been doing this for 2 1/2 years then her body is used to it. It would be another matter if she just started lifting weights at this stage of pregnancy. Chances of her delivery being an easier one increase with her fitness level and muscle control and strength. Good for her! No harm to her baby, more likely a help in the birthing experience for mom and infant.

    There's exercise and then there's "pressing 200 lbs" - must be torturous for the baby. Funny, isn't it, you can't ride a ferris wheel at the fair but you can do this.

    My Dr. told me I can continue any workout regimen I had before I got pregnant so I am still lifting weights (not heavy ones but lifting all the same). If shes been doing this for 2 1/2 years then she is perfectly fine as long as shes taking the proper precautions not to hit her belly with the weights. My Dr. told me she has women still doing this stuff, running marathons and all kinds of crazy workouts until the day they give birth! Ppl need to mind their business. She is a mother of 3 now...I doubt shes stupid enough to do something thats going to hurt her baby.

    if her doctor says it's alright....then so be it.....who knows, maybe it'll help here during labor and even after delivery....i say, each their own.
