Kim Kardashian is minutes (?) away from giving birth -- but it's her former bikini body that seems to be on her mind right now. The reality star posted five pre-pregnant bikini pictures of herself on Instragram with the words "Can't wait to go back." She could have been talking about Mexico, where the photos were taken -- but c'mon, five photos?! Somebody is having a little (maybe a LOT of) nostalgia for the skinny days.
I'm not going to knock a woman in the last stages of pregnancy who just wants that thing the hell out of her body already. Yes, by the last inning, it's just like Get This Thing Out. NOW!!!
By month nine, a woman is usually just dying to get her own body back. But it'll never really be yours again. For one, even if you don't breastfeed, you'll have another human being hanging off of it for the next decade or so.
Also, what body snaps back to pre-pregnancy form? Of course, there are the miracle bodies like Heidi Klum or Gisele Bundchen. But those two were skinny minnies to begin with. Other women have different shapes and they're never going to look again like what they looked like. I suspect Kim is one of those bodies. She will no doubt get back to looking great, but she's never going to look exactly the same. But isn't that fine?
The idea that a woman should cook up a human being for nine months, push it painfully out of her loins, and then have flat abs is just ridic and insulting.
I hope even if Kim never looks quite the same again in a white bikini, she's happy with that.
Did you go back to your pre-baby body?
