The model in the first picture is scary skinny. I hope she’s not really pregnant.

Sloanesmomma on

i dont agree she is not scary skinny she looks healthy and fit!!

cct0303 on

I agree with you Mina, some people’s definition of looking healthy is looking anorexic!

Anonymous on

The model on the cover page looks sick, seriously, they need to invest in some healthy looking preggo models.

cn tower on

I agree – this model wasn’t the best choice to portray a healthy pregnant woman….doubt she’s pregnant.

River on

Anorexic? Seriously? Just because a large majority of Americans are overweight (and most developed countries are catching up to that percentage of obesity), does not mean skinny women are anorexic. Just because being thin, fit, and healthy is no longer the “norm”, does not mean it is abnormal or crazy. That model looks perfectly healthy to me. That’s how my sister looked when she was pregnant, and she is NOT anorexic or unhealthy. I am thin like that and plan on keeping my figure once I get pregnant, and I am NOT anorexic or unhealthy either.

anonymous on

Model looks seriously anorexic and inappropriate for a pregnancy ad!

Cassie on

Agree with River. She is not unhealthy or anorexic at all. It’s so sad that obesity is so accepted but someone who looks like this has the problem…right.

Mira on

I totally agree that the image of what’s “normal” has shifted in the wrong direction towards overweight and unhealthy bodies. However, this model looks like she’s in her last trimester. At that point, she should’ve gained at least 15 pounds in order to have a healthy pregnancy. How would she look 15-20 pounds thinner? She’ll look scary and in anorexic territory. If she hasn’t gained any weight, then that’s not normal either.

My SIL is normally 90 pounds on a 5’3″ frame and even she looked somewhat chubby in the last trimester of her pregnancy. It is NOT normal to look like you’ve swallowed a ball, without any extra weight on your face, thighs, arms, etc in your last trimester.

Carrie Jo on

Just because people are rejecting extreme skinniness as beautiful or healthy does not mean they think obesity is beautiful or healthy. Sure, there are women who are that skinny naturally, but most women are not. Not being skinny does not make a person obese and it is rude to say that it does.

River on

Mira, that’s ignorant. Everybody is different. Not everyone swells up in their last trimester. Have you seen Miranda Kerr? She was model-thin in her last trimester and she gave birth to a chubby, healthy baby boy. Selma Blair also remained thin throughout her whole pregnancy. As I said before, my sister is just as thin as the model in the photo and looked exactly like that in her 3rd trimester. She only gained 30 lbs throughout her pregnancy, and none of it was in fat. The weight gained during pregnancy should consist of the baby, the placenta, and all the fluids the mother’s body is holding onto, NOT fat! My sister went back to 5’8″ 120 lbs just one month after giving birth and her doctor gave her a clean bill of health. Her son was also in perfect health and she had an uncomplicated pregnancy. He is now two years old and thriving. I have a similar frame as my sister (5’7″ and about 115-120 lbs; I fluctuate) and I do not starve myself. I am a health conscious vegan and I lead an active lifestyle. I plan on having a child within the next 5 years and I WILL keep my figure throughout my pregnancy. Again, I look just as thin as the model in the photograph (minus the belly) and I am not “anorexic”. I have two doctor appointments per year and my primary care physician has never complained. All my vitals are fine, and all my tests always come back perfect.

Indira on

You know sometimes they put fake on straight sized models. I’ve seen pregnant women that were all belly but, this lady just looks unusual. Why is that area next to her right elbow so big and her belly is completely to the other side. It looks crazy. Plus the model looks about 8ft tall.

MiB on

She looks a bit like my cousin at the beginning of her 3rd trimester. My cousin is naturally thin and usually gets really sick in her 1st trimester, when she gains weight again, you only see it in her belly and boobs as the rest of her body only gains back her “normal” weight. And her last one was a healthy 7,5 lbs. 5 days after giving birth she looked about 5 months pregnant, 5 months later she looks as if she’s never given birth at all. That’s just how her body works.

People have different bodies, some are all belly, some hardly look pregnant, some gain a lot of weight, others loose weight or gain very little. An old neighbour, who was heavily overweight (borderline obese) already before getting pregnant, just looked like she gained weight all over, but that was just water retention, in reality she lost weight during pregnancy due to a combination of morning sicknes and a pregnancy realted diabetes that forced her to change her diet radically. A mother at the kindergarten I worked at looked really sick and drawn during her pregnancies (she was a mother of 3) as she lost a lot of weight at the beginning and then for some reason had a tendency to keep loosing weight in her face even when she started to gain weight again.
