Being pregnant is certainly a time when our bodies take on a mind of their own. Engorged breasts, swollen ankles and needing to pee avery 5 minutes are just some of the joys we endure. And don’t think celebrities are any different to us. They too deal with all the pregnancy ‘fun’ except they have to do it under the constant scrutiny of the camera lens. At least when I was lying pregnant on the couch as big as an African elephant, drinking milkshakes and eating twisties all day there was no one there to capture it!
Kim Kardashian already said she feels like “a f**king whale” and now she is sharing even more information with us – her pregnancy weight gain. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who is due to have her son in December, tweeted, “Ok I’m 52 lbs up today….and I still have 6 weeks to go!”
“I got my work cut out for me!!!!” Kim added.
Kim shared her breakfast routine: “Every morning I have egg whites and avocado, and a piece of wheat toast. For lunch I love a salad, and for dinner, it’s usually a risotto or a pasta.”
As for the workouts, she’s also said that she looks forward to hitting the gym once North’s baby brother arrives. “As much as I really hate the whole feeling of being pregnant, I enjoy the challenge of getting my body back after it’s all over,” she said. “I feel so accomplished when I’m back to where I want to be.”
Kim has often spoken about her love-hate relationship with her pregnant body. She has often said that being pregnant was “the worst experience of my life.” That may be, but she is still showing plenty of skin in this lingerie number she wore on the red carpet recently. No kaftans and maternity dresses for Kimmie!
Kim has however admitted that she’s “given up” on trying to be fashionable these last few months of her pregnancy. “It’s getting hard,” she said. “A friend of mine emailed me and said, ‘Have you given up?’ and I said, ‘Why, what do you mean?’ and he said, ‘You’re wearing flip flops. I saw a photo of you in flip flops,’ and I said, ‘Yes, I’ve given up at this point.'”
I hear you Kim! During my last months of pregnancy, putting an effort into my appearance meant putting on my ‘good’ thongs! See, maybe Kimmie really is just like the rest of us!
