While we're not the type of place to EVER get on a woman's case for gaining weight while pregnant (or any time, for that matter!), we do think that doctors set weight-gain limits for a reason: it can be unhealthy for both the mother and child if too much weight is gained!
We're glad that Jessica Simpson had an amazing first go at being preggers, and now we're hearing she's using all that wisdom to make sure her second time goes even smoother — especially weight-wise!
Here's how she is handling the second pregnancy versus the first:
'With Maxwell, I felt amazing. Like I could do everything, eat everything. Do whatever I wanted. I had a lot of energy. This time around, I’m like exhausted. Eating Tums. That’s my snack of choice. The first pregnancy I like let loose and I kind of ate everything that I wanted to eat and I just really enjoyed it. This time around I think because I was doing Weight Watchers and I felt super healthy. I’m not really craving as much and I know how hard it is to get off so I’m trying to make healthier, wiser decisions.'
We're sorry that it doesn't seem to be going as smoothly as with Maxwell, but we're glad you're still healthy and on your way!
We can't wait to meet the little one!
