On the way home from the hospital Shawn revealed on her Instagram Story that she injured herself by dropping a piece of concrete on her big toe! “Well guys, we had a really eventful night. We are currently headed home from the emergency room,” she said. “It had nothing to do with the baby.”

“I dropped a piece of concrete on my foot — a piece of concrete fell on my foot because I was real excited about petting a dog,” Shawn shared.  “And I broke my big toe just in half. Pretty nasty, so that happened.”

The soon-to-be first-time mama told fans “all is good, baby’s good, everything’s good." She also warded off mommy-shamers by assuring that she wasn’t taking any pain medication “because of the baby.” She told her followers, “Just ice. Oh boy, it’s gonna be a fun night of sleep!”

One fan joked in the comments section that the accident was “totally worth it” because Shawn got to pet a puppy. The former gymnast responded, “Oh absolutely! I will sacrifice a toe ANY day for a doggo.”

Shawn updated her followers once again on October 14 via her Instagram Story. “Guys I’m great, I promise. I’ve got some pretty coloring, my foot is a little bit bigger than usual, my big toe’s a little bit longer than usual, but I’m good! It’s just a perfect excuse to chill out until baby comes!”

The former gymnast and her husband Andrew East are welcoming their first child in late October. “Third trimester in a nutshell... I live in the same 3 outfits (because that’s all that fits), energy is low, sass is very high (sorry babe), back aches, and what is sleep hahah so glamorous,” she wrote on September 19.
