Something is bugging me at the moment. Well, its been bugging me for awhile if I'm honest.
Every time I see an article, either online, tv or in a magazine about Jessica Simpson it is about how fat/huge/massive/big she is.

I would just like to say she is NOT FAT, she is PREGNANT. Her womb currently has a BABY inside it.
What do people not understand this?
Just because she used to be a skinny minny doesn't mean that she won't ever gain weight!
I think its great she is embracing her pregnancy and not sticking to punishing exercise regimes or restricted diets.
She has apparantly admitted to eating "everything in sight" and so what? Her body obviously wants to. My body craved red meat and coke whilst pregnant, two thing I NEVER eat normally. So what if shes gained weight? Weight gain during pregnancy is healthy! Its needed for breastfeeding and is natures way of preparing for babys arrival.
Jessica looks lovely and I am so happy to see a "normal" pregnant celebrity.
Yes, there are just as many naturally thin ladies that don't gain much weight during pregnancy, but this doesn't mean that EVERY woman has to stay thin. I certainly didn't!
Me full term with Ozzy, July last year.
Me full term with Lily, February 2009
See? I was HUGE! I put weight on all over my body, 3 stone to be exact. Yes I was eating more, but I didn't eat excessively. I exercised too, but still gained, its just natures way!
And so what? Who cares? My baby was healthy, I had great births and the weight soon came off after.
If you're skinny and pregnant, great! I'm happy for you!
If your bigger and pregnant, thats great too!
As long as you're healthy, baby too...thats all that matters surely?
