One expectant mom is blowing everyone’s minds with the new “ultimate baby bump challenge.” Essentially a woman has to suck in her baby bump to make it look like her belly was “deflating” so that she isn’t, in fact, expecting.
And Megan Elizabeth Call is believed to be the one to have won this baby bump challenge. In the video, you can see Call’s husband bending down to pretend to pull a plug out of her belly.
And that’s when Call “deflates” her bump to unbelievable proportions.
Take a look:
“And that’s on having incredible pelvic floor and abdominal wall control,” one commenter wrote. “I just vocally said wait what,” said another.
And while most people were stunned, entertained, and thoroughly impressed by Call’s crazy talent, many also were concerned if the expectant mom was harming her unborn baby by sucking in her bump. And as The Bump reported back in 2017, it is all perfectly safe.
“The technique, called the Belly Pump, is part of the Bloom Method, a fitness routine designed specifically for women who are pregnant, postpartum or trying to conceive. Started by Brooke Cates, CPT, CES, HHC, CRS, the goal is to increase strength, properly engage the pelvic floor muscles (think: kegels) and promote speedy recovery after delivery. What you’re seeing in these ‘disappearing bump’ videos are core strengthening exercises.The Bump
Here is a video demonstrating the exercise in a more serious manner.
As The Bloom Method wrote on Instagram, “We call this exercise TBM’s Deep Core Hold and recommend that all our mamas do this during pregnancy, along with several of our other deep core techniques. Exercises like this one provide endless benefits that support your body during and post-pregnancy.”
And the couple ended up responding to the hate with yet another priceless video:
