Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Pregnant Krystal Nielson — who is expecting a baby girl with boyfriend Miles Bowles — headed over to Instagram this week to reflect on the experience of carrying her first child.
“Tomorrow I’ll be 8 months pregnant! So far I’ve gained 30lbs and have grown a HUGE APPRECIATION for the female body and what it’s capable of!!!” Krystal wrote on Wednesday, accompanied by a photo that sees the gorgeous fitness coach showing off her baby bump in workout attire.
“Making time to connect with my mind + body has always been a crucial component for me to combat stress, feel good, and increase my energy!” she continued, explaining that exercise feels more important than ever even if she’s had to make adjustments to her typical routine.
“While I may have shifted to lighter weights lately, making time for a self-care practice has been even more important than ever before!” the Bachelor Nation star added.
Krystal’s post comes just weeks after she stopped by “Click Bait with Bachelor Nation” to chat with co-hosts Tayshia Adams, Joe Amabile, and Natasha Parker about her feelings as she and her photographer beau await the arrival of their daughter.
“Some days, you just wake up and you just feel really emotional and you don’t know why. It’s the first time I’ve actually experienced this in my pregnancy, but [today] I just felt like I wanted to cry,” she said. “I was like, ‘Why do I want to cry today? There’s so much good stuff to be happy about.’ But it just happens!”
Krystal — who split from husband and fellow “Bachelor in Paradise” alum Chris Randone in February 2020 after eight months of marriage — announced in November that she was pregnant. She and Miles began dating in the spring of 2020 after meeting through a mutual friend.
