We love TikTok for many a reason, not least because it's forever opening our eyes to the wonders of the human body. From celebrating bigger baby bumps, to breaking down the rare medical phenomena of falling pregnant whilst already being pregnant, the app has it all – and now one user, known as Weird Jaime, has shared the very special moment she captured her bump 'drop down' in the middle of a workout.
Alongside a short clip that shows the mother-to-be getting stuck into a kettlebell workout, fitness fan Jaime wrote: 'I nearly peed myself #38weeks #ohno,' and added text to the video reading, 'POV [point of view] you feel the baby drop down mid set.'
Her followers couldn't get enough of the footage, with one writing in the comments, 'That was really cool to see! You normally never catch them dropping lol.'
Another added, 'Oh wow!! I saw baby drop from here!!! 🥰,' And a third chimed in with, 'That was actually visible 😳 whoa... stay strong mama 🥰.'
So far, the clip has been watched over 2.4 million times.
Others used the clip as an opportunity to discuss working out while pregnant, with some expressing concern that vigorous exercise could be harmful to the baby – to which Jaime quickly shut down any worries, pointing out that so long as you're not drastically increasing the amount of activity you did pre-pregnancy, there should be very little to stress about.
'As long as you're not increasing your workouts or pushing yourself most doctors recommend to continue with most of your pre-baby routine 😁,' one commenter agreed.
The NHS advice is in line with this too, with the website stating: 'Keep up your normal daily physical activity or exercise (sport, running, yoga, dancing, or even walking to the shops and back) for as long as you feel comfortable. Exercise is not dangerous for your baby. There is some evidence that active women are less likely to experience problems in later pregnancy and labour.'
Three cheers for magical bump drop moments!
