Who knew baby weight would cause such a reaction?

Whether the viral images of Lea-Ann Ellison, a nearly 9-months pregnant fitness fan lifting a weighted bar bell, have caused you to cringe or think, “You go, girl,” you’re bound to find plenty of people to agree with you.

Some reaction to the photos -- one of which was displayed on CrossFit’s Facebook pagelast week, showing Los Angeles-based Ellison in a jog bra, shorts and tall athletic socks hoisting what looks like a huge amount of weight over her head – has been negative.

See the Controversial 9-Months Pregnant Weightlifter. Wow. - http://www.ivillage.com/pregnant-weightlifter-causes-controversy/6-a-547610

What do you think about this weight lifting mama?  Are you working out during your pregnancy?
