America Ferrera shares a candid update about her first trimester struggles.
Later, Ferrara shared a photo of herself at the gym. (Spot that baby bump!)
“Soooooooo hard to workout through the nausea & exhaustion of my first trimester!!!,” her caption begins. She continues:
I would walk into the gym and nap for 10 minutes on the massage table before I started. Some weeks I’d only muster 1 workout or I’d miss the week entirely, but I refused to feel like I had failed. Through this pregnancy I’m equally committed to feeling strong AND being kind to myself. As you start your 2020 workout resolutions, be kind to yourself. Celebrate your intentions and meet yourself where you’re at with compassion for everything you’re asking of yourself. Go get it! Thanks @grantrobertsfit for letting me nap between sets.
Ferrera and Williams got married in June 2011 and welcome their son Sebastian in May 2018. At the time, Ferrera talked to People about how her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel and Amber Tamblyn, who are also all moms, shared parenting tips and tricks with her as she awaited the arrival of her first child.
No word on when Ferrera is expecting her second child, but it’s sure to be a very sweet New Year for the family.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
