From what I understand as a woman who's never been preggers herself, being pregnant and having constant morning sickness is a pretty rough gig. Which is why I can't imagine how Teen Mom Jenelle Evans is handling boatloads of criticism all while carrying baby #2.
The MTV star announced her pregnancy a few weeks back and is getting tons of criticism. Last week, she slammed claims that Nathan Griffith was hired by MTV to be her boyfriend. This week? Despite posting photos of her baby bump all over Instagram, "fans" are accusing her of not being pregnant at all!
Granted, this is the same woman who many accused of not being pregnant at all back in January when she miscarried her pregnancy with estranged husband Courtland Rogers. Back then, there were no bump photos. There weren't any complaints of morning sickness. She wasn't up at all hours sharing random tidbits of life on social media.
I think it's safe to say that this time around, Jenelle is most definitely preggers.
Jenelle even got angry when a fan questioned how far along she was, saying:
Idc if u guys think I'm 10 weeks or 20 weeks... That's none of yr business and shouldn't even concern yu. Nice try stirring drama again.— Jenelle Evans (@PBandJenelley_1) December 31, 2013
I mean, here's the thing, Jenelle. You're the one putting yourself out there in so many different ways for the world to judge. You're the one posting photos of your bump and tweeting about your nausea. Is the Teen Mom star entitled? Of course! But she should also know that if she's going to give that sort of ammunition to her thousands of followers, they're most certainly gonna do something with it.
The important thing for Evans is to breathe and try not to let the stress get to her. I think all moms can agree: being pregnant is a tough gig as it is. There's no reason for Jenelle to get all up in a tizzy over what other people think of her baby bump.
Do you think Jenelle would actually FAKE a pregnancy? Did you ever look like you were further along than you actually were?
