And guess what: That's OKAY!
As long as a woman isn't in danger of getting Gestational Diabetes or putting the baby at risk, gaining weight is a normal part of the procedure — so when we hear that Vanessa Lachey gained 65 pounds, we aren't THAT worried!
"I gained, I think, 65 pounds when I was pregnant. And I will say to moms out there, 'Don't stress about losing it. It will happen when it happens.' Cam's 9 months, so it's been a minute, and we're working, and we're traveling, and it's just about maintaining a happy, healthy lifestyle, not obsessing about it.
"I think that's one thing I would like to convey to moms everywhere. It's not about this 'get skinny quick' diet or these fads. Just enjoy time being a mom. You've just had this wonderful, magical moment, and you shouldn't be stressing about that kind of stuff."
We really dislike it when ladies are pressured into losing the weight fast, as if their jobs and reputation depend on it. It puts a negative spin on the whole experience. If you're happy and healthy, that's what counts!
"Spanx are amazing. Thank you to the inventor of that."
Keep up the hard work, Vanessa! We're glad to hear you're not overdoing it!
