Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave just recently revealed that she is expecting her third baby with husband Edwin Arroyave, and it is clear that the mom of two is about to have a totally different pregnancy experience that before. Not only has The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fitness buff already had to confront negative memes on her 15-week pregnant runway walk for buddy Kyle Richards' NYFW show, but she is also sharing how she is incorporating fitness and her healthy lifestyle into her daily routine — something she wasn't actually able to do with her first two children.
On September 17, Teddi took to Instagram to explain how her third pregnancy will different on her body and why she has decided to be open about her journey.
"For my third pregnancy I decided to document my journey as this will be my first as “healthy and fit.” For me, that means I am continuing to listen to my body while eating what my baby needs and getting in daily activity. I’m at 15 weeks and could not be more grateful for this blessing. My pregnancies with both Slate and Cruz were much different than this one— there were hormones, blood thinners, steroids and lots of temporary bed rests to avoid another miscarriage."
In the pic, Teddi showcases her body as it transitioned from before she was pregnant to five weeks, twelve weeks, and her most recent fifteen week shot where we can spot a little bump on the way. "Needless to say I wasn’t allowed to be active and I turned to things like bacon, egg and cheese biscuits and cinnamon rolls to comfort me (I swear the McDonald’s drive-thru knew my order by heart). I call them comfort foods, but they did anything but comfort me. Instead, they led me to a warning for my doc about health risks."
The Beverly Hills fitness pro is not holding back her emotions as she focuses on her health and wellbeing. "I may only be 15 weeks in without an idea where the rest of this journey will take me, but I am beyond thankful for another day to wake up with a healthy baby in my belly and a healthy mommy who knows she’s doing what’s best for both of us. See you next trimester!"
