Lara Trump is over nine months pregnant, and while most women might be keen to do nothing but sit with their feet up, the fit mother-to-be is still hitting the gym — only this time she is hoping that working up a sweat will induce labor.
The 34-year-old, who is 39 weeks along, took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a video of herself using a weight to do a series of overhead tricep extensions and lunges.
‘Hoping the workout inspires this baby to make an appearance!’ she wrote, thanking her trainer Michael Maloney for his help.
Working up a sweat: Lara Trump shared an Instagram video of herself working out this week while nearly ten months pregnant
Although she is nearly ten-months pregnant, Lara looks trim and toned aside from her growing baby bump.
The video sees President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law wearing a Pink Floyd, black cropped leggings, and Nike sneakers for her workout.
Lara’s blonde hair is up in a messy bun, and she looks focused as she alternates between lunging and lifting a weight above her head.
‘Week 39 still kicking a**,’ Michael says in the background. ‘This girl’s in sick shape.’
The trainer also shared the video on his own Instagram page while offering tips on how his followers can replicate Lara’s workout.

‘Baby training week 39 with my client @laraleatrump,’ he wrote. ‘Do 15 reps each side for 4 sets.
‘This move is great for glutes, hamstrings, quads and triceps,’ he added.
Lara and her husband Eric Trump are expecting a baby boy this month, and the mom-to-be told Daily Mail Online in August that she has been ‘blessed with an incredibly easy pregnancy’ that has allowed her to remain fit and active throughout.
‘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.’

Missing her horses: Over Labor Day weekend, Lara shared a throwback photo of herself horseback riding last year, writing: ‘Countdown is on until I can ride again!’
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.’
The animal lover and equestrian is also looking forward to being able to go horseback riding again.
Over Labor Day weekend Lara shared a throwback photo of her and a friend riding together at stable in Westchester, New York, and she admitted she can’t wait to get back in the saddle.
‘Laughing at this photo from a year ago today where neither of these rascals were being at all cooperative,’ she wrote. ‘Countdown is on until I can ride again! Come on baby!’
Staying active: A few weeks ago, Lara escaped the city and enjoyed a walk with friends and her dogs

Busy as can be: The two appeared to be picking up a baby gift for someone
For the past month, Lara has been waiting out the remainder of her pregnancy in New York, splitting her time between Westchester and Manhattan. However, that doesn’t mean she has been laying low.
A few weeks ago, she and Eric were photographed doing some shopping in Manhattan, walking down 5th Avenue with what appeared to be a baby gift in tow.
They then nipped back home to grab their dogs and take a car north of the city, likely to their home in Westchester.
Lara wore a pair of distressed white jeans, a striped long-sleeve tee, and white loafers, leaving behind the supportive ankle wrap she was seen wearing earlier this week.
Whoops! Lara’ secret birth plan became very public after it was accidentally left on the dashboard of a black SUV parked outside of Trump Tower last month

Meanwhile, Eric wore slacks and a blue button-down, as well as a matching pair of dark loafers.
The Trumps were followed by three Secret Service agents on foot, plus another three driving nearby in cars.
A detail has followed Eric when he conducted Trump Organization business to destinations including Uruguay — where the Secret Service spent $100,000 just on hotel rooms — along with the United Kingdom, the Dominican Republic, Canada and the United Arab Emirates, all in 2017.
That detail has also been with Lara, offering protection and — as was the case earlier this month — revealing details of her birth plan to the public after a handwritten note, titled ‘Baby hospital info’, was left on the dashboard of a black SUV parked outside of Trump Tower.
The note revealed 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.
