Well, she's defied the odds before, so it makes sense she wouldn't heed anyone's warnings about intense exercise while pregnant.
At six months pregnant, most of us would be using it as an excuse to sit on the sofa, put our feet up and munch on some chocolate digestives.But that just isn't the way Bethany Hamilton does things
In 2003, Bethany lost her arm to a tiger shark, while she was getting in a Halloween surf session. A lot of people assumed that this would end her budding career as a competitive surfer, but it most definitely didn't.
As little as a month after the attack, Bethany was back in the water and thanks to true grit and determination, she won her first National surfing title about a year after that!
So, while we might use pregnancy as an excuse to slow down, Bethany isn't about to heed any of the advice about only doing "moderate" or "gentle" exercise during this nine month period.
Considering that before she was pregnant her workout routine was downright menacing - she would do weekly tabata, bosu ball, high-intensity cardio and dumbell sessions, on top of her regular surfs and beach running - it makes sense that her pregnancy routine would be a little more strenuous than the average.
Despite telling Fitbump360 that she's definitely taking time to rest, she also admitted that she walks, climbs, does some spin classes at her gym and also claims to have done some of her BEST surfing while pregnant!
At five and a half months pregnant, Bethany said she started to really feel the weight of her belly while on her surfboard, but at just over six months she's still at it.
Speaking of her drive to keep going while pregnant, the surfind superstar told Fitbump: "I am more energetic and happy when I've gotten some exercise and....giving birth may be one of the most physical events a woman goes through, so being active and keeping muscles alive and ready is what I believe we need to do."
She also said she's keen to follow in her brothers' footsteps, by getting the new addition to her family out on a surboard as soon as possible.
