Amber Rose’s Pregnancy Confession Is Just Plain Annoying

Rant 139

I don't think Amber Rose wants other mommy friends. The incident that has brought me to this conclusion? Well, her latest tweet is something that no mom-to-be wants to hear from another pregnant woman.

Recently the model, who is expecting her first child with rapper Wiz Khalifa, tweeted a photo of her huge belly and brags, "9 months pregnant & no stretch marks on my body thank you Jesus!!! :-)" She's not lying. You can't see a railroad track anywhere on her. It's amazing. She looks fantastic. And therein lies the problem.

Pregnancy is not a sexy or chic time for most of us. Yes, we are happy. We glow -- kind of. But it's hard to feel beautiful, at least in the way we did before the second trimester. Weight gain is just one of the various, annoying symptoms of impending motherhood. For some, feet grow a full size, the nose spreads, and their breasts get huge. Then there are those dreaded stretch marks nearly every woman ends up with. It literally changes the way we think of bikinis for the rest of our lives.

If I sound envious of Amber, well, I am. But that doesn't mean I am not happy for her. I think she is gorgeous and all around fabulous. But I can see that. She doesn't need to tell me that. So I think it's fair to say that moms who have "pretty" pregnancies should just keep their mouths shut out of respect -- or pity -- for the rest of us.

What pregnancy symptom did you hate most?

I got an awesome claw looking stretch mark in literally the last week of pregnancy.

I thought I escaped with out stretch marks until after I had my youngest, I dropped the baby wieght plus 25 pounds from before and all of a sudden there they were! Those dreaded purple streaks all over my hips :/

Ditto. My stretch marks arrived 2 days before birth.

After two kids I didnt get a single stretch mark. Thats not to say I dont have any. I got plenty during puberty but for some reason was spared later in life. However i would never brag about it on facebook or mention it to my friends who i know are very insecure about their bellies. And amber better be careful...I only went to 38 weeks both times. She could easily go longer and get those last week marks.

A lot of pregnant women post annoying things like this on fb and twitter. Its like they think they're the first in all of humanity to be pregnant and everything is absolutely perfect.

Bah. Why shouldnt she be happy? And whats wrong with sharing her happiness? I have no reason to be jealous of some random person, or even a friend if they did this. Maybe if we could all just stop worrying about how everyone else looks, more people would be happy with their own bodies.

Oh, and I have streachmarks ALLLL OVER. Granted, my last child was 3 years ago, so theyre quite faded now. But I didnt care when they were "ugly" and purple either.

I didn't get any stretch marks from my pregnancy. My friends don't hate me over that fact and I don't feel the need to hide it. I went with my family to Spain in September and posted pics on fb of DS and I splashing in the pool, I was wearing a bikini. My friends commented nice comments, why? Because I surround myself with people who aren't green eyed monsters.

I got ZERO stretch marks while I was pregnant. Not even a tiny little one! I was so happy, that when I realized about 2-3 days after I gave birth that I have stretch marks on my hips, my ass, my thighs, and my freaking boobs since they went from an A to a D, well... Lots of post-baby hormonal crying. So, she can say anything she wants but since she has the $$$ to make those suckers go away after the baby anyway, well, no one gives a crap.

I was able to make it through both my pregnancies without a single stretch mark on my body but I still get the willies thinking about how bad my complexion got when I was pregnant with my son.
