Pregnant Six-Pack Mom Sarah Stage Claps Back At ”Ignorant” Body Shamers



Remember: Neither fat-shaming nor fit-shaming is OK!

In 2015, model Sarah Stage made headlines (and haters) throughout her first pregnancy for having six-pack abs right up until the end. Two years later, the mom of one is pregnant again—and still fit as ever.

While her experience with a bevy of online trolls experience could have soured Stage on wanting to share her sophomore pregnancy with the world, it has not. The six-pack mom, who is now 7-months-pregnant, is taking to Instagram yet again to show her fitness journey to her 2.3 million fans and she’s also making sure to clap back at the haters. 

One more time she’s proving that she’s not going to cover up to shut up her body critics.

Yesterday, the on-the-go mom posted a workout video, which shows her 2-year-old son James running around while she gets fit. 

The 32-year-old wrote, “#7monthspregnant & feeling great. I’m now sticking to at home exercises from my ebook 2-3x a week & have stopped doing crunches since I’m in my #thirdtrimester.”

She also made sure to post an inspiring message to anyone who has dealt with trolls, “Our bodies are truly incredible & I feel blessed to be able to grow another healthy baby inside of me! I choose to stay positive & I represent anyone who has dealt with doubters, trolls & bullies. It feels great to prove ignorant people wrong & even better to know that all you have to do is believe in yourself and trust your own instincts.”

On July 14, Stage mentioned in a post that she’d gained 14 pounds thus far in her pregnancy. 

Her plethora of pregnancy posts have had quite a varied response from commenters, some are envious, writing “#goals,” while others slam the mom for not being “healthy.”

During her last pregnancy, Stage had gained 20 pounds by the time she was 8-months pregnant. Speaking with Good Morning America at the time, she didn’t seem too concerned about the noise surrounding her baby bump pics, saying, “As long as the baby is healthy, I don’t think anything else matters…That should be the most important thing.”

But if people still think she’s not being healthy, they should probably look to Stage’s insanely adorable son as proof that she’s got what she needs to keep her pregnancy on lock down.

We should say that, of course, having a baby (and everything leading up to it) is different for every woman. According to The Mayo Clinic, “There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to pregnancy weight gain. How much weight you need to gain depends on various factors, including your pre-pregnancy weight and body mass index.”

According to a chart on the site, women within the normal weight range (having a BMI from 18.5 to 24.9) should generally gain between 25 and 35 pounds during pregnancy. The Mayo Clinic notes that each woman should work with her health care provider to determine what’s healthy and right for her.
