Actress Lisa Haydon, who is almost 20 weeks pregnant with her second child recently took to her official Instagram account and wrote a caption that mostly all pregnant women might relate to.
The Queen actress shared a throwback image of herself to when she was 16 weeks pregnant in a black one-piece bikini with a surfboard in her hand.
She wrote, “Baby waves with my baby bump. I was gonna post this as my ‘coming out’ pic. But I thought the joy of another addition to our family belonged to all three of us so that’s what was posted instead. Here is a throwback to being #16weeks pregnant with #2.”
Speaking about the hardships that she is going through, she wrote, “I wrote this a few weeks ago in answer to lots of questions about exercise when preg and nausea .. since writing this post I haven’t done any exercise or even gone for a walk. Lots has been eaten though and our baby is so far, so good and that’s all that matters.”
She also wrote about her love for surfing and how things changed a bit because of her pregnancy. “This first trimester was rough. Nothing like my first pregnancy… surfing was something I had been doing from before and was disappointed at the thought of having to stop. I checked with my doctor who surprisingly approved and said one should carry on as usual.”
Lisa added, “Of course, with precautions. I tried doing other forms of exercise but, all other exercises would make me feel worse – this was practically my only release (and sucking on a Lemon) to feel better from the intense nausea and also get an adrenaline kick- I mean, it’s a high.”
That was not it, she also turned to Google to see how safe was surfing while pregnant. “After doing loads of googling on the subject, I found multiple articles on surfing when pregnant.. and was relieved to know I’m not the only one. Positive, I haven’t got many, if any, pregnant surfers following me, but if I do:-) here’s what I learned and followed.”
She even gave pointers to fellow pregnant women who love surfing, Lisa wrote, “1.) surf on a foam board (unless modelling for first baby photo. Then pose with hardboard), 2.) try and paddle on your knees… I actually felt nothing when paddling on my stomach, so I did. 3.) don’t go out in crazy surf. 4.) listen to your body and to your doctor.”
She added by saying, “This morning I took a moment to appreciate how much better life is feeling moving on from trimester one… another high. Week 16 was my cutoff to stop and so, Until next year baby waves.”
Recently Lisa made headlines as she turned showstopper at the Lakme Fashion Week 2019 for the designer Amit Aggarwal.
