Lara Trump has ankle wrapped while out in New York City

Lara Trump seems to be battling one of the uncomfortable annoyances of being heavily pregnant: swollen ankles.

The mother-to-be was photographed in New York City on Monday morning, going through a walk near Central Park with a friend.

The 34-year-old was dressed in yoga pants and a tank top, and had her right ankle secure in an ankle support wrap.

Lara didn’t seem to be in much pain as she smiled at photographers while walking down the sidewalk.

She held her phone and appeared to be in a good mood as she got some exercise, which she has kept up throughout her pregnancy.

Lara hasn’t come forward to explain whether her ankles are just bothering her from carrying around a baby inside her, or if she instead injured herself in some sort of athletic pursuit.

Lara does have a history of some pretty uncomfortable injuries. In 2014, just two weeks before her wedding to husband Eric Trump, Lara was involved in a horse riding accident that left her with two broken wrists.

At the time, she took to Instagram to share photos of her bandaged wrists, writing: ‘Wedding countdown: 2 weeks and 2 casts to go! #HopeImAFastHealer. 

Despite sustaining the injuries from horses, though, Lara later proclaimed that she wasn’t scared to get back on one.

‘There are inherent risks that we all take in life. When you truly love something, it’s worth it. I wouldn’t take back one day of riding — stuff happens. I will ride again and it will be better than ever. Most importantly, I still get to marry the love of my life on Nov 8th.,’ she said.  

In June of 2016, she was injured once again, suffering a broken collarbone from yet another fall off a horse.

Whatever might be ailing her, Lara isn’t letting it get in the way of getting out and about in New York leading up to her due date in September. 

Earlier this month, she was spotted walking around New York in a fitted black dress and a pair of black flats from her sister-in-law Ivanka Trump’s fashion line, as well as an oversize red handbag that was slung over her right shoulder as she chatted on her phone. 

Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law was joined by one of her Secret Service agents as she made her way to Trump Tower. 

While Lara was making her way to Trump Tower, her secret birth plan became very public after it was accidentally left on the dashboard of a black SUV parked outside the building.

The handwritten note, titled ‘Baby hospital info’ reveals exactly which New York hospital the first-time mother is is planning to give birth at next month, as well as the address of the emergency entrance and the phone number for security. 

It also lists the name of a contact who is to be called ‘ASAP’ after Lara goes into labor.

The note was spotted on the dashboard of Secret Service vehicle parked outside Trump Tower on Monday as it appears an agent may have left it in full view by mistake.

Lara is splitting her time between New York City and Westchester, New York, for the remainder of her pregnancy, but that hasn’t stopped her from hitting the gym with her personal trainer, Michael Maloney.

Earlier this month, Lara took to Instagram to share a video of herself working out while 35-weeks pregnant, and aside from her growing stomach, the mom-to-be looks as trim and toned as ever, making it hard to believe she is over eight months pregnant.  

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Online, Lara revealed that she has been ‘blessed with an incredibly easy pregnancy’ that has allowed her to remain fit and active throughout, admitting that she was ‘worried’ about the prospect of not being able to workout.

‘I was always a little worried, because I had heard different things from different people about their pregnancies; some people have to stay in bed for months… you never know what you’re going to get,’ she said.

‘I knew I needed to workout for my sanity, and I try and make it a daily habit if I can, so I count myself very lucky that I have been able to keep doing that while pregnant.’

Lara also admitted that she had heard staying fit and active can make delivering a baby easier — and helps to ensure that the recovery time after birth is as speedy as possible.

‘I know it can make the delivery easier, which would be great,’ Lara said of her efforts to stay fit and healthy. ‘And it means that the recovery time after birth is often shorter.’ 

But being able to stay active isn’t the only thing that has helped Lara throughout her pregnancy. The expectant mother admitted that she has had a great deal of support from husband Eric, and both of their families, as she prepares to welcome her first child.

‘The nursery is coming along nicely, we’re nearly there with it, which is a huge weight off [my and Eric’s] shoulders,’ she explained. ‘Eric actually built the crib himself, he’s very handy!

With the help of her in-laws and her husband Eric, Lara said her main focus now is just taking care of the final preparations, including buying a stroller, and diapers, and getting her hospital bag ready. 

‘I spent most of the weekend in our laundry room washing, drying, and folding baby clothes,’ she admitted, revealing that she and Eric have been given plenty of gifts for their newborn by friends and family.
