When it comes to celebrity news, I admit I am very blase. In fact, I use the term “news” somewhat sarcastically. Jennifer Aniston seen wearing bulky sweater, sources say she is hiding her baby bump.
Having always struggled with my weight, I found myself lucky that when it came time to put on the pregnancy pounds, my babies were my number one priority and I never looked back.
With all the celebrity pregnancies and women looking like they never gave birth only weeks postpartum puts a lot of pressure on us regular women. Let’s face it, it takes nine months to put it on, it’s not going to disappear overnight. Nor should it. The weight is there for a reason.
Getting to Kate Middleton. She seems like a sweet girl, but I find it alarming that at 6 months pregnant she has virtually no baby bump and is far from maternity. She was waif thin before (to be honest, I don’t know how she even got pregnant that thin) and she is still thin now.
Of course, it’s her life and maybe it is just a fluke and her metabolism is faster than the speed of light. The problem is that she is a role model to millions and I fear seeing her will make lots of women with sweet baby bellies feel bad about themselves, or give little girls the idea that it’s good to be thin while you are pregnant.
Being pregnant is one of the most special times in a woman’s life. You are growing a human being inside you and there is nothing like it. You should eat well, be healthy, and enjoy yourself. You have the rest of your life to worry about fitting into the latest skinny jeans.
So Kate: please, for your baby, EAT something! 😉
