It’s already quite impressive that scored a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics in beach volleyball, but it’s even more astounding that Kerri Walsh Jennings did so while five weeks pregnant!

The 34-year-old beach volleyball babe is carrying her third child, and she told Matt Lauer that her bun in the oven definitely made things more complicated while she was competing in the English capital.

Kerri shared, "When I was throwing my body around fearlessly, and going for gold for our country, I was pregnant, and today I'm 11 weeks pregnant."

"I'm [usually] a pretty happy girl and I was unreasonably moody. I thought it could have been the stress of the games and travel kind of throws your schedule off, but I knew… At some point, you're late and then you start feeling something. And I definitely started feeling something in London,” she added.

Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC network’s chief medical editor noted, "The risk that she put to herself and fetus was zero to none. [At five weeks], the embryo is microscopic. It's just implanted in the lining of the uterus. It would take an act of God to dislodge it, not a bump on the tummy, not a dive."
