So right about now those of you who know me or those who just operate on common sense are probably doing a “Say what now?!” I admit there are not many things that would make me put the word hero and Kim K in the same sentence.
But my honest truth is that she really is a model for pregnancy for me. Let me tell you why…
She wasn’t blessed with a “cute” pregnancy and that’s ok!
Yes I know all pregnancies are beautiful but lets face it some ladies have that perfectly round ball and no fat that appears any where on her body! People asked me all the time if I was going to do a pregnancy photo shoot. My answer was no! I enjoyed feeling baby move inside of me, I enjoyed the pregnancy attention I got but I did not love the way I looked. In my first pregnancy I never seemed to pop out! In fact I got wider and wider until my belly button just collapsed on itself. I was ok with that but I didn’t have the picturesque pregnancy that you see in magazines and neither did Kim! So a real life famous person had a baby bulge instead of a baby bump and the world got to see that this is a beautiful pregnancy too! Work that bulge Kim K! You are a trail blazer for wide pregnant women every where!
She had cankles and the world needs to learn about this! Stop telling lies to young aspiring mothers every where! Your feet will grow and heels will spread and they may never come back!
Ok I will not tell a lie this was a tragic choice of foot wear on her behalf. However this happens in pregnancy! This is what many moms suffer through before the bouncing baby comes! Kim K! Work those cankles and try another shoe but good for you!
She is not afraid of having babies back to back!
Come next May I will have 3 kids 3 and under! I love my life! I love my Kids but to most people you would think that I have somehow lost my mind having so many children back to back. Here are the top front runners of strange rhetoric about having multiple children.
- You guys need a TV in the bed room! ummm ok we have a TV in our bedroom but we also like to engage in marital intimacy is that ok with you.
- Don’t you know how to use birth control. Why yes my husband was actually a sex ed teacher for some time you know.
- (Now on my third pregnancy) Are you going to have your tubes tied? …I am glad that you are concerned for my reproductive organs however I think I would rather have a conversation about life altering surgery with husband… THANK YOU!
- After I found out about my second child another mother says… Oh I am so sorry…I’m like sorry for what? The miracle of life? No need to be sorry we love having our kids close in age.
All in all you can see that Kim is an every day women pregnancy hero. She isn’t concerned about what social norms say about how many children you have and how long you should wait. For me when I often feel like a baked potato warped in foil I am proud to see another lumpy pregnancy in media.
