While most women are hit with extreme fatigue while in the early stages of their pregnancy.

The athlete took to Snapchat to share a photo of her little bump while wearing a yellow swimsuit on Wednesday. The athlete is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33.

"It feels good,' she said of the engagement in January, reported The Daily Mail.

"I really haven't thought about it too much, because I wasn't even really gonna think about it until after the tournament.

"So, I just keep saying, 'February, I'll start looking at the bigger picture of my life.' But right now I'm just so focused that this is all I can think about."
