Pregnant Meghan Trainor Reveals Health Concerns
Meghan Trainor has opened up about a health issue she encountered early in her pregnancy.
“I haven’t even talked about this yet,” the 26-year-old singer-songwriter told iHeartRadio Canada’s Shannon Burns.
“I didn’t know… my mom had gestational diabetes for one month during her pregnancy,” Trainor revealed. “I was really close to getting it and I’m still petrified so I had to really focus on what I’m putting in my body and I got a trainer and I’m working out every other day and really scared and want to make sure everything’s smooth sailing.”
As many as 20 percent of pregnant women develop gestional diabetes, according to Diabetes Canada. It typically develops in the second or third trimester and can cause problems for both mom and baby – but the risk is reduced through diet and activity.
“People were like, 'Eat whatever you want, live your best life, don’t workout, it’s not good for your core,” recalled Trainor, who shared her pregnancy news with fans last month.
“You have to workout your core because your abs can also split too soon and you have that open gap forever.”
Trainor said being pregnant has taught her there are many “things nobody’s talking about" and she vowed: “I’m going to write a book. I’m going to help everyone.”
