As you can see from the above pictures, Coco Austin is pretty much back to her pre-baby body only one WEEK after giving birth to daughter Chanel. She only gained 13 pounds (yes, you read right) during her entire pregnancy. Coco delivered Chanel three weeks early.
Here’s Coco’s full Instagram post:
1 week post baby ..the left was me at 36 weeks ( I had Chanel at 37 weeks) I was basically in shape before I got pregnant but during pregnancy I stopped my workout regimen at 4 months preggers and pretty much became a fruitarian after that lol..No not really, I ate other foods of course but craved fruit. I lost 10 pounds before I even started to gain baby weight probably because 1- I stopped drinking alcohol. 2 – I stopped weight lifting and lost a lot of muscle and 3- I ate really healthy and took my vitamins everyday.(I’m gonna post my whole routine soon on my baby blog www.thecocoblog.com) I gained 13 pounds my whole pregnancy and now I way almost back to norm at 137 pounds. All this is strange to me too, how my body took so well with pregnancy because I was mentally prepared to blow up like a whale and I was totally cool with it I really could have cared less how my body looked it didn’t matter to me..I couldn’t wait to get a bump and rock it! ..I would’ve gone through anything to make a healthy baby ..I had the heavens really watching over me and know everyday how blessed I am.. I believe anybody could too go through a wonderful experience and thats why I made a baby blog so people could know the steps I took..I hope to bring inspiration
Well, if you want to know how to prevent excess weight gain, it looks like Coco will have a pretty good strategy! I wonder if her low pregnancy weight gain was part of the reason she ended up delivering early? Well, it all worked out: Chanel was a bit on the small side at 5 lbs, 7 oz, but she’s clearly healthy. She was able to go home with her parents, and that’s what you really want, right: a healthy baby you can take home.
