Hello! Another commission down the pipeline! This is an anonymous commission about a woman who is a year overdue with quads who struggles to teach a yoga class through the strong movements of her brood! This story contains strong fetal movement and overdue pregnancies. Enjoy!
Valrea waddled into her studio, a room reserved at the local recreation center just for her maternity yoga class. She’d gotten there a good 20 minutes before any of her students would show up, giving her time to get set up and assure herself that she wouldn’t be late. She slowly made her way to the front of the room before unrolling and placing her yoga matt on the ground. She groaned as she stood back up, pushing her hands into her lower back to help reach verticality again. Val had been teaching this course for as long as she’d been pregnant, which had been longer than most. Currently, she was 20 months into her quadruplet pregnancy, and her belly showed every day of it. While her rigorous skincare regiment had kept her from developing any stretchmarks, the sheer rotundity of her tummy told anyone who saw her that she was indeed incredibly pregnant.
Currently, her four were asleep, nestled comfortably in her tummy. Her belly button pushed out all the more by baby C, who leaned against the front wall of her womb. She took a swig from her water bottle, and rubbed the side of her distended belly. She’d need to stay plenty hydrated, as she had an intense workout planned for everyone today. It felt good when she got everyone nice and worn out by the end of their hour class. It meant they got their money’s worth! At least, that’s how Valrea felt.
She sat on a nearby bench and awkwardly kicked off her shoes, before grabbing her phone to look over her roadmap for today’s exercises. She’d have everyone start with some basic breathing, then warm up with some basic poses, then she’d start of the FUN stuff. She pulled her legs up and folded them so she sat cross-legged, her huge belly resting on her ankles and criss-crossed calves. She’d somehow maintained a lot of her grace and balance through her extended pregnancy, but there were some positions she just physically couldn't’ get into any more. Touching her toes had become a long distant dream at this point, and certain positions where one’s body would lay flush with the ground just literally couldn’t happen. Of course, that’s what happened when you were a year overdue with quadruplets.
She looked up from her phone to see Phoebe, one of her regulars, step into the studio. “Afternoon!” greeted Valrea. “Hi Val!” smiled Phoebe, who immediately took a spot front and center of the room. Phoebe had been attending the class since she was in her first trimester, before you could even tell she was pregnant at all. Now, 8 months later, her twin heavy belly made it pretty clear why she’s there. She wore colorful floral tank top, and bright pink yoga pants, which were starkly colorful compared to Valrea’s black tank top and gym shorts.
“How’re the twins?” asked Val, as she did every week. “Oh, they’re big… and heavy. I hope you’ll go easy on me today,” replied Phoebe. Val smirked, “You’ll be sweating pretty hard if my workout for the day is anything to go by!” she teased. Phoebe tied her blonde hair in a ponytail and sighed, “I mean I guess that’s why I’m here,” she smiled. The pair shared a playful mentor-pupil relationship, and Phoebe had an immense amount of respect for Val, both as a yoga instructor and just as a fellow mom-to-be. She was struggling to get around when 8 months with twins, she had no idea how Val managed to be so overdue with quads.
Valrea felt a twinge of movement from deep inside her body, no doubt one of her babies slowly waking up. This worried her a little, as the more rowdy they got, the harder things were for her. At this point, she was large and overdue enough that their movements would really hinder her ability to do things. She just had to hope that they would stay quiet, and trust her strength to hold out against four potentially very rambunctious babies.
The two women turned when they heard the door swing open, two more ladies stepping though. Val didn’t recognize them, and they looked to be about mid second trimester themselves. The pair were obviously newcomers as they both immediately stared in awe at Valrea’s mammoth belly, as everyone did their first class with Val. She slowly rose to her feet and waddled over to greet the two. “Hi! I’m Valrea, I’m your instructor today!” she said, her professionalism masking how shy and awkward she honestly felt. The shorter of the two women, whose hair was was a crisp, raven black, like Val’s own, reflexively placed her own hand over her modest bump, making more eye contact with Val’s navel than her eyes, though Val’s eyes were characteristically difficult to find under her bangs.
“Uh, I’m L-Lexi,” she stammered out. Lexi’s friend, who had a bit more composure, and a bit more belly, reached out to shake Val’s hand. “I’m April,” she greeted. Val took Aprils hand and shook it lightly, “You guys are here for the maternity yoga course?” she asked. April elbowed Lexi to stop her from staring, and nodded. “We saw your class on the website and it looked like a perfect fit. Lexi and I used to do some casual yoga together before we got pregnant, and we’d like to get back into it together!” she explained.
Val nodded as more regulars stepped into the room, each going to their usual spots, all sporting bellies in various stages of pregnancy. “Well we’re in for a rigorous workout today, so I hope you’re ready for that!” Val teased before going back to her bench, the various students greeting each other. It was mostly regulars today, Lexi and April being the only two newcomers.
She refreshed her memory of the workout to come, and then stood up, clapping her hands together to get the attention of the dozen or so students in the room. “Alright everyone, lay down your mats, turn off your phones, and take a drink of water, cause we’re going to get started soon!” she said, projecting her voice to fill the room. As everyone made their final preparations, one last student waddled into the room. Felicia, a rather tan woman with brown hair who was carrying overdue triplets, was a regular to the class. As a result, she was also regularly late, though no one held it against a woman in her condition. She was 13 months along, and her belly was the only one that could have rivaled Valrea’s in size. It didn’t of course, Val having one extra baby and a 7 month lead, but still, the two women were undeniably overly pregnant.
“Sorry I’m late… again… I got stuck behind the steering wheel…” Felicia frowned. Val smiled warmly and simply said “You’re good hon, just find a spot and sit on your mat, we’re starting with our usual breathing exercises,” Felicia nodded and waddled to the back left corner of the room, the only open spot left.
Val sat down cross legged on her yoga mat, her well padded booty and thighs giving lots of cushion under her pregnancy weight. “Alright everyone, I’d like for folks to sit on their mats however they’re comfortable, and follow me through this breathing exercise,” she started. Everyone followed suit, most mimicking Val’s position. She placed her hands on the top shelf of her belly, hoping that she could soothe the stirring in her tummy. “Now I want you to loosen your shoulders, drop them down and let your tension work its way out of your body,” she instructed. “Now breathe deep into your chest, and feel your body fill with air, your lungs expanding, and your belly pushing out,”
Tummies of all kinds, bare, clothed, full term, and barely showing, all swelled slightly as all of the class-goers inhaled slowly through their noses. “Hold it for 4 seconds… then breathe out, through your mouth,” Val did just so, and everyone followed suit. The class sat in peaceful silence, all breathing slowly, and getting in the zone. At least, all was peaceful except for the contents of Valrea’s womb. Val’s quads were beginning to awaken, at a fairly inopportune time.
Val grunted as baby A kicked one of her organs, and she pressed into her taught, bare belly. Lexi and April took a moment to look at each other, both expecting Val’s water to break right then and there. They both stared as the very center front of Val’s belly pushed out and one of her children rolled inside of her, followed up by a strong punch from a visible hand jutting beneath her navel.
She slowly stood up, continuing her instruction. “Alright, let’s start easy with the chair pose,” she said, reaching her arms above her head as she bent her knees, and leaned forward as much as her tummy would let her. Her legs spread as her belly took up the space between them, her overfull midriff sandwiched between her thick thighs. Everyone mirrored her pose, bending their own knees, arms above their heads, leaning forward. The smaller students kept their feet together, while the larger ones were forced into a pose more like Val’s. This was certainly a pose better for smaller tummies, but Val was the biggest one in the room, and if she could try, so could everyone else.
Val and Felicia both had it the hardest, being overdue with multiples was rough on its own, and it didn’t do a lot for flexibility. Poor Felicia was already breaking a sweat on the first pose of the day, her tummy twitching with movement from her triplets. After watching everyone hold their poses for long enough, Val released, returning to a standing pose. Everyone wordlessly followed suit. “Next is the Eagle pose,” she said calmly, lifting her left foot and hooking it behind her right calf, bending her arms and intertwining them. This one was actually easier for more pregnant people to do, as no part of the pose was impeded by the belly.
Or so Valrea ahd thought. Standing on one foot required balance that she had, thanks to years of practice and strong core muscles. But for a few of her less practiced students, the pose didn’t come so easy. No one fell, thankfully, but there were a couple of times Val watched someone unhook their foot and place it on the ground to steady themselves. She didn’t chide them, this simply wasn’t a competitive environme- KICK! Val grunted again as a harsh kick from baby B jutted out her side. This was followed by a flurry of kicks down the front, which were strong enough to push Val off balance.
She unhooked her foot and stumbled for a moment, embarrassed at her lack of physical balance. She was supposed to be their teacher! “Sorry everyone, babies are really wiley today,” she mumbled, eliciting a few sympathetic nods from the her students. She returned to her pose before another strong kick jutted to the right, almost throwing her off of her balance again. These movements were large, strong, and very visible form the outside, putting on quite a show for the other pregnant patrons.
“Are you okay, hon?” asked Phoebe. Val nodded, judging Felicia a little less as she felt a tiny bead of sweat roll down her forehead. “Just, y’know, super pregnant… nothing I can’t handle!” she said, trying not to breathe too heavily. Each baby was riling the others up, and Val was worried about how this class was going to go.
She untwisted herself from the eagle pose, standing with her feet shoulder width apart, and her hands placed firmly on the sides of her belly. One of her babies pressed their hand into Val’s palm, something she used to think was adorable, but after 20 months of this, it was decidedly less cute. Baby C did a somersault, which nearly knocked the wind out of her. They were all well awake now, and everyone in the room had their eyes on Valrea’s active tummy. “You sure you’re fine?” asked Lexi, eyes glued to her teacher’s belly as it undulated.
“Y-yeah! I’m used to this! Now e-everyone should pull up your leg and get into the tree pose!” said Val as she desperately tried to keep the class on track. Everyone did as they were told, but eyed the pregnant instructor worriedly. Val placed the bottom of her right foot on her left inner thigh, and pressed her hands together before slowly raising them above her head. The rest of her class followed, with varying levels of poise and balance. That was when Val’s brood decided to make their biggest moves yet.
All four began simultaneously kicking, rolling, and generally being a problem, and Val’s poor belly began distending and contorting in odd directions as a result. Her skin turned red from overstretching, and she began to sweat more heavily from the exertion of containing these rambunctious four. “Uh, miss, are you alright?” asked April. “Y-yes, I’m fine, thank you…” Val squeaked. Everyone silently held their pose before Felicia piped up. “What’s that sound?” she asked. “Nothing! T-there’s no s-sound!” replied Val, trying desperately to hold her position. Felicia excited her pose and started wandering up to Val, “No… I definitely hear something…”
The triplet heavy woman waddled to the front of the room, and listened very intently… she heard a muffled sloshing, and realized what it was. “Oh my god Val, that’s your belly! Your amniotic fluid is sloshing around in there!?” Val blushed intensely, everyone else now made aware of the subtle sound of lapping fluid. “I… can’t help it…” she whispered, her shyness coming through. Felicia frowned, and Phoebe waddled up to join the pair. She gently placed a hand on Valrea’s active belly, causing Val to flinch slightly. She left her pose, blinking back tears, feeling overwhelmed.
“We know you can't help it sweetie. We’re not holding it against you, we just want to help,” she said gently, which helped calm Val slightly. Felicia joined Phoebe by placing her own hands on the tummy, receiving several kicks for her troubles. “Man, they’re really going to town in there…” she commented. Slowly, everyone moved up to join them, and soon Val had around a dozen pairs of hands placed on her bare, pregnant belly. “Y’know what’s weird? I think this is calming them down...” Val said softly, touched by her class’s solidarity.
After a few minutes, the sloshing stopped, the kicking calmed down, and the somersaults halted. Val’s tummy looked almost inert, except for a couple of hands poking out here and there. She quite liked the attention, but felt bad that she’d distracted from the class itself. Everyone’s hands slowly left her belly, and all returned to their mats, except for Felicia. She seemed to enjoy touching Val’s hyper-distended belly, and rubbed slow, sweeping circles over the front hemisphere of her tum. “We have more poses Felicia, you should go to your spot,” said Val. The triplet heavy woman tilted her head slightly, staring at the bump, “But, if I stop, won’t they get riled up again?” she asked.
Val thought for a moment, they could, in theory, rile up again, but she wanted everyone participating. “If they start moving too much, I’ll call you back up,” she said. Felicia nodded and waddled back to her mat, her huge belly brushing against Val’s massive tum as she turned to do so.
“Alright… with that out of the way, everyone put your hands together, and squat into the garland pose,” Val instructed, getting her confidence back. She splayed her legs as wide apart as she could, and squatted down into her chosen pose. She closed her eyes and breathed deeply, holding it for some time. Though it didn’t take long before a familiar sound reappeared. A muffled, uneven sloshing rang out from Val’s overfilled womb, causing Lexi and April to eye each other again. Val’s tummy rumbled form irritation as all four babies went back to kicking and rolling around. Her breathing grew a little more forceful as she tried not to let it bother her, but the exertion of her pose and containing four rowdy, overdue babies was too much for her not to break another sweat.
She stood back up, grabbed her water bottle, flipped it over, and squeezed a stream of cold, icy water over her sweaty, bare belly, cooling it down substantially. This only riled up her babies more though, and she noticed Felicia staring hopefully at her tummy. She sighed, knowing she couldn’t teach like this, and made a decision. “Alright everyone, I hate to disappoint, but… I think I’m too pregnant to teach this class! So… I’ll have everyone leave me your emails, I’ll refund you for today’s lesson, and send everyone the workout routine. I’m sorry but these little guys are just too strong for me to do this,” Everyone nodded, understanding and being compassionate. Val felt sad though, she loved teaching yoga and was going to miss this. There wasn’t much to be done though, at her size. It was no wonder her own sister had stopped most exercise when she got this big…
Lexi and April approached her, both shaking her hand in turn, “We’re impressed you lasted so long!” said Lexi, “You an inspiration!” she smiled. Val grinned, “Thank you, ladies. I do hope to see you again once everyone’s no longer pregnant,” The two women nodded, April giving Val a playful pat on the tummy. “Surely you’re almost due?” she asked. Val shrugged, “I mean… I was due a year ago, and they seem pretty content in there, so…” Val trailed off, supporting her mammoth bump. Lexi’s eyes bugged out at the idea of going a year overdue, but April took it in stride. “Well good luck hon, hope everything goes smoothly!” she said, turning and dragging Lexi off as she gawked.
The rest of the class all followed suit, rolling up their yoga mats and waddling away, except for Felicia and Phoebe, that is. Valrea had gone back to sitting on the bench and was too busy drafting an apology email to notice the two women loitering. The pair both considered themselves friends of Val, and felt the need to stay and comfort her after the rough class. Phoebe walked up to her with Felicia trailing behind, her heavy belly keeping her at a slow waddle. “I know how much this class means to you, I’m sorry you’re having to call it off,” she sympathized, taking a seat next to the heavily pregnant woman. Val nodded solemnly, but smiled at the effort her friends were making, they were what made the class itself so meaningful.
“Y’know, it’s unfortunate, but maybe its for the best? I’ll have more time to spend on myself… I can still practice yoga at home, so it’s not like I’m out the exercise…” she trailed off. Felicia waddled up and flopped heavily onto the bench, sitting on the other side of Val. “I’d be willing to come to your place for private lessons if you would have me. I won’t judge you for having an active womb,” she offered, placing her hands on her own twitching, active belly. Val perked up, “That’d be lovely! We could each bring a little lunch item, do yoga, talk about our pregnancies, it’d be fun!” she bubbled. “You’re both invited to come! You’ve both been coming to this class for as long as you’ve been pregnant, I’m fairly certain you’re more than just students to me,” Val offered, extending the invitation to Phoebe as well.
One of Valrea’s babies chose that moment to kick out the left side of Val’s tummy, causing her skin to come in contact with the side of Felicia’s belly. Both girls jumped at the sudden contact, and Felicia blushed. Phoebe’s own twins started to kick as well, resulting in all three women clutching their bellies, trying to calm their own babies. Val chuckled, “It’s funny, there are more people in my belly than there are in this room,” she observed. The people in her belly began squirming wildly, causing moe lumps and contortions for Val’s swollen midriff. The other two girl’s hands instinctively shot to Val’s active tummy, slowly rubbing and soothing her brood.
Val sighed, “It’s going to be hard though, even with just you guys. I get so flustered by their movements,” she said. Phoebe nodded in sympathy and thought, before smiling at her friend. “What?” asked Val. “You know, this room is still rented out for the next 30 minutes… you could get some practice in front of us now,” she pointed out. Felicia piped in, “Yeah, and we could go get dinner after! Start things off with something nice!” Val considered it, nodded, and hefted herself to her feet, waddling back to her mat. “Alright, but we’re sticking with my original workout plan. Get ready to sweat!” she smiled. Felicia and Phoebe giddily stood up and went back to their own mats, ready to get started. “Alright, this next pose is as follows…”
