Hip-Hop Dancing Mom Is 27 Weeks Pregnant

Expecting mom Christina Litle’s hip-hop dancing has the internet up in arms yet again

It’s pretty common knowledge that being active while you are pregnant is great for you and your baby. And yes it is true that you shouldn’t introduce any new strenuous activity once you become pregnant. But if you already workout on a regular basis, and have been cleared by your doctor, there shouldn’t be any issue in continuing your fitness regime.    

It seems, though, that any time a pregnant woman posts anything on social media where she is being physically active, the internet loses its collective mind. All of a sudden she is endangering her baby by working out and we should all be outraged.

How could we forget fitness model Sophie Guidolin who was bereted for keeping up with cross-fit while expecting her second child.  

And now, Christina Litle, a hip-hop dancing mom from California is taking the same hit.

After posting a video of herself at 27 weeks pregnant dancing her heart out, social media users lashed out claiming that she was doing harm to her unborn baby. (Because having a Facebook account is pretty much the same as being a doctor, right?)

“Let me preface this video with, I've danced my whole life, and it is COMPLETELY safe to maintain the level of activity your body is used to while pregnant," Litle wrote on Facebook. "I'm not hurting my baby...the baby is not getting ‘Shaken baby syndrome’ and no...the child is not experiencing whiplash."

Litle, who has been teaching dance at Napa High School for 11 years, went on to explain to she wasn’t in pain and in fact, she had danced even further into her first two pregnancies.

“I do what I know my body can handle. I'm pregnant...not disabled.”

Amen!

Litle was recently interviewed by PEOPLE.com and she commented on why she even felt the need to address the naysayers on social media.

"Although only a few responses have been negative, it bothers me," Litle said, "because there's this stigma about women being active during pregnancy. A lot of people think you have to be sedentary, but the truth is, when you're building a human life, you're exponentially stronger than you ever imagined. This is my third pregnancy. I know what my body can handle."

We figure all the haters are just jealous. Let’s be real, how many of us can even dance like that sans baby belly?
