Kerri Walsh Expecting Baby #3 and Pregnant DURING Olympic Games!!!

If you did not already find Kerri Walsh completely mind blowing impressive with her 3rd Olympic Gold in beach volleyball with partner Misty May, but she also just revealed she was 5 weeks pregnant while competing in London 6 weeks ago while achieving that Gold Medal!

“When I was throwing my body around fearlessly and going for gold for our country, I was pregnant,” Walsh Jennings jokes.

While we don’t recommend beach volleyball as the preferred sport for expecting moms, I’m sure Kerri has probably scaled back on her body hurling in the sand now that she knows of the reality of her pregnancy. She even admitted feeling a little “off” during the games, although I’m sure her opponents didn’t feel that way about her play.

“I thought it could have been the stress of the Games and travel throws your schedule off,” she explains. “At some point, you’re late and then you start feeling something. And I definitely started feeling something in London.”

Kerri, 34, and her husband, Casey Jennings, will welcome baby number 3 in early April to join their sons, Sundance, 2 and Joseph, 3. Kerri says this pregnancy is a lot different than her previous pregnancies with her sons and is experiencing morning sickness every day.

“This little one is kicking my butt! The first two were pretty easy, but with this one, I’m sick every day,” she admits. “I’ve got some awesome acne. I just feel different.”

Well she sounds a little human, but I’m sure those washboard abs will pop out again by May!

All joking aside, we admire 3 times Gold Olympian Supermom Kerri and wish her all the best with her pregnancy.

Pregnant Athlete To Compete In London Olympics

Nur Suryani Mohd Taibi from Malyasia will be 7 months pregnant when she competes in the London 2012 Olympics. But, it’s not in track, swimming or other sports that require her extreme exertion. Suryani competes in shooting.

Given that shooting requires a steady hand we hope the olympic athlete has a baby who is calm and doesn’t kick her pregnant belly too much!

One suggestion of maternity clothes for Suryani would be the Maternal America Hoodie Maternity Track Suit. It is soft and stretchy. There’s plenty of room at the belly. The pants have a tie at the waist to allow for the changing shape. Sizes run from Small to Large and run $129.
