Serena Williams posts a selfie that showed her in a bright yellow swimsuit stating "20 Weeks" which indicates that she had likely been pregnant during her record-breaking win at the Australian Open. "Labor is a pretty intense workout," says Joanne Stone, MD, MD, director of maternal fetal medicine for the Mount Sinai Health System. "People with a high level of fitness going into pregnancy can generally keep exercising till the end."
