Kim Kardashian vs. Kate Middleton: Whose Pregnancy Is Healthier?

27

kate middleton kim kardashianWhy didn't I think of this before? It's so obviously time to compare Kim Kardashian's weight gain with Kate Middleton's. Join in the fun, everyone. Who is having the healthier pregnancy? Hungry-hungry-hippo Kim or "mommyrexic" Kate? Who's wearing the baby bump better?

Some are saying Kim's got the more healthy pregnant body, because you're supposed to get all big and squishy like that during pregnancy, aren't you? Others say it's Kate, because she's gaining weight gradually -- oh, no, actually, people are saying Kate is not gaining enough and obviously starving herself. Which is it, people?

Okay, it makes me sad that the term "mommyrexic" even exists. But anyway, I think the very notion that Kate would put her unborn child in peril just for the sake of staying skinny is insane. I'm sure she's being closely monitored by the Palace doctor and is gaining whatever is appropriate for her body. How do we even know how big she's getting? It's freezing there in England. She's always covered up in a big coat.

Every woman's body is different, and every woman's body deals with pregnancy differently. Kate may still be having trouble keeping anything down. Even if she's gaining the recommended amount of weight, she's not going to look all that different with an extra 10-15 pounds. And she may just carry small -- I remember I definitely did. My own midwife kept sending me in for ultrasounds because my belly just did not look big enough to her.

As for Kim ... well, you could make the case that she's using pregnancy as an excuse to overindulge. If the tabloid reports are true, she's probably eating more fast food than is healthy. And I think it's going to be a challenge to lose the weight, but I also think the weight shows up more on Kim because she's got a different frame. She was voluptuous to begin with. And I have friends who gained a lot simply because they were voracious through their entire pregnancy. But again, that's between her and her doctor.

Plus, the range of healthy weight gain for pregnancy (15 to 40 pounds, depending on starting weight) is wide enough to include all kinds of shapes. There is no "ideal" pregnancy body -- only the most healthy pregnant body for you.

Do you think one of these pregnant ladies looks healthier than the other?

Where does anyone get off judging anyone? Any pregnant woman knows every pregnancy is different.. Back off of both of them

Whew! I had to keep reading to realize you weren't actually being shitty about these women's bodies. I was ready to tear you a new one, AV.

She was hospitalized due to severe morning sickness. All that throwing up would make it hard to gain weight. Be that as it may, it's none if my business.

I only gained 20 lbs with my pregnancy until the last four weeks. I didn't even look pregnant until 6 months. I had the tiniest little bump that unless you saw me naked you wouldn't know.

I think Kate looks fabulous.

When I got pregnant my first time, I was 5'2" and 95 pounds (at 15 weeks, I've just always had a problem gaining weight my whole life). But the end of my pregnancy I had gained 50 pounds and didn't even look like myself. Everyone sees pictures of me and doesn't believe it was me because I didn't gain weight in just my belly but EVERYWHERE. This time I'm 27 weeks and was 104 and 5'4.5" tall before I got pregnant. And I'm all belly. I look exactly the same, just with a HUGE belly. Every woman gains weight differently and every pregnancy in general is different. While they are both healthy, it may look different from the outside.

I think we shouldn't compare women. We are all different and need to celebrate our differences. We shouldn't make anyone feel badly for being "too large" or "too small". So long as their doctors feel that they are healthy, then that's all the matters. BOO for posting an article like this.

Jodi 'Box' Crain

Not to mention, Kim is like 5'2" and Kate is like 5'8"-- makes a "Big" difference.

What is the point of this article? I suppose you must get paid by the word, based on the utterly useless and asinine postings that you make. I am flabbergasted that garbage like this makes its way onto CM and other sites.
