The heavily-pregnant mother posted on social media that she "literally" couldn't walk after doing the dance with her husband Garth Small and daughter, Evaliah.

At 36 weeks pregnant, the "baby mama dance" attracted more than 116,000 views in an hour, with more than 1000 comments.

The self-confessed 'pregnant fitness junkie' said "surprisingly" her husband was "pretty keen" to dance in the video when Ms Polites raised the idea.

"It's just a phenomenon that I've seen other mothers do, we all love dancing and just wanted to get involved and do it," Ms Polites said.

The family filmed the video in snippets today in anticipation of their new baby, whose sex is still a surprise.

"I had my daughter (Evaliah) at 37 weeks which is next week, it's just getting your body ready for labour, just a bit of fun," Ms Polites said.

The expectant mum said the social media response had been "overwhelming".

"It's been overwhelmingly positive, I've been getting so many messages about it from people saying they love it, I haven't received anything negative about it."

"I've done a few dancing or workout videos with my daughter, because she loves to dance, as soon as you put the music on she just dances like nothing, she just does it naturally."

Ms Polites recently celebrated her baby shower with guests including fellow fitness influence Emily Skye, fellow pregnant instagrammer Jamie Allen and Hembrow sister Emilee.
