*** STRICT ONLINE EMBARGO UNTIL 00:01 MONDAY 12/05 *** ***EXCLUSIVE*** PHOENIX, ARIZONA — APRIL 26: Meghan Umphres Leatherman, 33, nine months pregnant and dilated to 1cm seen lifting a heavy weight at her home town gym with her husband Chad and coach Melissa in the background on April 26, 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona. SUPERFIT Meghan Umphres Leatherman shows she can still lift 215lb weights despite being nine months pregnant. The mum-to-be was just TWO days away from her due date and 1cm dilated, but that didnt stop her grueling CrossFit fitness regime which combines weightlifting, gymnastics and cardio activities. The 33-year-old even lifted weights on the day she went into labour and broke records in the final days of pregnancy. As well as going to the gym FOUR times a week, Meghan, from Arizona, America, 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 theyre both healthier for it and her pregnancy was actually EASIER. 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.
