After hearing Kim Kardashian call herself "heavy" in reference to her pregnancy, I couldn't help but nod my head in agreement -- because I know exactly how she feels. And I'm pretty sure every other pregnant woman or woman who's ever been pregnant knows exactly what she's talking about.
At one point or another, every gal reaches a point in her pregnancy where she feels less than light and attractive, so it really shouldn't come as a surprise that Kim is literally feeling the weight of her condition right about now.
Heck, she's even telling people she's only 5 1/2 months along when she's really 6 months pregnant -- because she's worried about her size. (Aww. That makes me sad.)
She's being way, way too hard on herself, but then again, most of us tend to be our own worst critics. Why should Kim Kardashian be any different?
Check out what she had to say in this video clip.
Actually, it's amazing just how much her pregnancy reminds me of my own. According to In Touch, Kim isn't exactly craving celery sticks right now. Sources supposedly commented on Kim's eating habits and said, "She's eating whatever she wants -- ice cream, fries, cereal loaded with sugar. She has a chef who makes healthy meals, but Kim's weakness is comfort food. Carbs ... crappy stuff."
Um, duh. Who doesn't want comfort food and crappy stuff during pregnancy? I honestly couldn't get enough of bagels and cream cheese, pasta, cupcakes -- you name it -- while I was expecting my son. Even though I tried my best to eat healthy, sometimes scarfing down a salad didn't quite do it for me. I wanted something hot, savory, and delicious.
Of course, giving into your cravings tends to lead to the whole feeling heavy thing, which is definitely less than ideal. (Gah. Can't preggos catch any sort of a break?)
I know it's easier said than done, but hopefully Kim will cut herself a little slack as far as obsessing over the baby weight goes. Yes, it's a bit of a pain to take off and you have to work really hard at it, but she'll get there. Her body will go back to the way it was eventually, and besides, every single pound is worth it for the tiny little miracle you get in return.
Of course, having a relaxed attitude about pregnancy weight is a hell of a lot easier when your family isn't pressuring you to get a tummy tuck after the baby comes. (Sigh. Poor Kim. No wonder she's having self-esteem issues.)
Have you felt heavy during your pregnancy?
