Pregnant Molly Sims Officially Debuts Baby Belly

There it is!

Two weeks after confirming she’s expecting, Molly Sims officially debuts her belly in the opening shot of her pregnancy photo gallery.

“I thought it would be fun to document my baby bump on the site each month, starting today,” the model, 38, writes on MollySims.com.

“That way all of you can see how far along I am, and I’ll have all of the pictures to look back on once the little bun in the oven arrives.”

Due at the end of June with her “honeymoon baby” — she wed Scott Stuber in September — the Project Accessory host is 18 weeks along and trying to soak up each new experience — even the nausea!

“I’ve already been through the morning sickness (every morning from 4 to 6 a.m. for seven weeks — it was the worst), the strange cravings (I’m looking at you, Kraft Mac Easy), and daily episodes of what I call, ‘Pregnancy brain,'” Sims blogged earlier this month.

“But, believe it or not, I’m cherishing every moment.”

In addition to posting monthly photo updates of her growing bump on her website, Sims will also blog about her pregnancy, including more on her newfound cravings and transformation from model to mom.

She’s beautiful.

janet on

I always liked her on the gap commercials years ago too.

Bree on

I wish my morning sickness had only lasted a couple hours a day for seven weeks!!

I had morning sickness 24/7 for 3 months, it was so bad that I not only LOST weight but I got so dehydrated that I got kidney stones.

She looks great and I have always been a fan of hers, but really saying that minor bout with morning sickness was the worst kind made me laugh and want to tell her to suck it up because I know not only myself but a lot of women would have loved to have had it that easy!!

Shannon on

She’s gorgeous.

Samantha on

Look at that baby growing! Beautiful!

Jillian on

Beatufifil picture!

Bree, but to her…..that was the worst. Any amount is the worst to experience. She didn’t have it easy. As a mother who had it longer, I wouldn’t tell her to suck it up….. I sympathize with her. Not a competition of who has more or who has it the worst.

Anonymous on

She looks great!

Jillian on

You see, Bree, no one is coming to this site to hear YOUR story of woe. No one cares that YOUR morning sickness was 24/7. It’s not a competition, because if it was, there would be someone who had it even worse than you.

emily on

People don’t measure their unhappiness based on the unhappiness levels of other people. If she was suffering though it, she is going to say so. I agree with anonymous…it’s not a competition.

Maya on

I care that Bree’s morning sickness was 24/7 – it’s interesting to hear other women’s experiences so please speak for yourself and stop being so negative – it’s really bad karma.

Anonymous on

At the risk of sounding weird, I want to point out that not only is it not a competition, but everyone experiences and deals with vomiting differently. Vomiting is no picnic for anyone, obviously, but some people can deal with a few days of the stomach flu quite well. Others may be hardly able to stand even two hours of vomiting each morning during early pregnancy (like Molly said she had).

My point is that two hours of vomiting might be harder on one person than it is on another.

Jillian on

I have never heard of anyone having morning sickness 24/7 and I don’t believe Bree.

Maya, she doesn’t have to care. That doesn’t make her negative. Just curious…….what karma will she get? People being negative about her? That is life.

Mother of 2 on

@Jillian-I know a lady who had sickness so bad that she had a permanent IV in her arm through out her pregnancy, i’m assuming it was administrating meds to help with nausea and fluids to prevent dehydration. My sister also was sick though out her entire pregnancy and she also lost weight. So yes, I know it IS possible.

Either way, she looks AWESOME for 18 weeks! I wish her a healthy remaining pregnancy and an easy delivery! Healthy baby as well-that counts the most!

Renee on

lol at some of the comments. Have to agree with you Jillian. I was so so sick with my daughter, vomiting the whole pregnancy, even all through labour. Currently 25 weeks with my son and still vomiting but it’s all worth it. Friends of mine who have had 2 weeks of sickness found it terrible, because they haven’t experienced anything else. That was bad for them.

Honestly though Bree in the scheme of things aren’t you glad that all we had to put up with was sickness! I much prefer that over bleeding, diabetes, etc etc. I’m thankful that the worst I get is vomiting and weight loss, then a gorgeous bub :)

Jillian on

No, Maybe, do you know what’s negative? Someone posting a response to one person’s experience (Molly Sims) with their own (Bree) whining about how their experience was much worse and that Sims should “suck it up”.

So now every woman who has temporary morning sickness should just “suck it up” because there are women who get morning sickness 24/7? Ridiculous, morning sickness sucks for everyone and I’m still on the “it’s not a competition” side.

If Bree wants to write a blog about her experience with morning sickness, that’s fine. We’ll all sympathize. But there’s no need to relegate someone elses experience to the nonsense pile.

The negative post was Bree’s, not mine.

Boo-Boo on

Some of us were never able to have children, and would give anything to have morning sickenss. Just saying.

Halee on

The forum is free. Everyone is entitled to expressing themselves and their particular experience. So what if Bree says she had a rough time 24/7?

Many, many women experience nausea and vomiting for extended periods of time. Others feel almost nothing.

Of course, the ones who suffer most will remember best. C’est la vie!

karry on

Well said Jillian, you took the words right out of my mouth.

stronger then most on

Bree you would really hate me because I never got sick during any of my pregnancies.lol

Kim on

Wow, lot’s of Bree bashing. And all for merely stating her view. Kinda sad in today’s world. The fact is pregnancy affects everyone differently and each person’s experience is that person’s.

Jaime on

Wow, Jillian, you need to stop judging others. You don’t know Bree, yet you attack her for sharing her experience. I doubt she was trying to say “suck it up”, I think woman just like sharing their pregnancy experiences when the opportunity presents itself. So yes, I do think that yours was the negative post, not Bree’s.

Emily on

She looks great and will definitely will be a great mom!

Motheroftwo on

I feel her on the morning sickness! I had it for both pregnancies the entire time. For her first time I bet it felt like a terrible experience! She’ll be a great mom though she seems to have a very kind heart…I met her once a while ago and talked with her a few minutes she was extremely nice!

grandma of 9 on

I honestly feel sorry for anyone who has/had morning sickness with their pregnancy/pregnancies. I cannot relate as NOTHING made me sick and I could eat anything I wanted. Every pregnancy is different and we all have to endure some type of uncomfortableness at some point in time. Good luck Molly!

Anonymous on

Jillian- Mother of 2 is correct. Some women really DO vomit that much during pregnancy. The condition is known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum (which, translated into English from Latin, quite literally means excessive vomiting during pregnancy), and some women who have it vomit so much that they end up having to be hospitilized (and fed and given fluids Intravenously) due to dehydration and malnutrition.

Also, while I understand what you were trying to say and even agree with it somewhat, I DO think you came off a bit harsher than neccesary. Obviously it’s hard to read tone over the internet, but Bree’s comment sounded pretty light-harded to me, like she was saying it in a, “Oh, man, if only she knew how easy she really has it! LOL!” kind of way.

Elizabeth on

She looks just beautiful, and it is great that she only had a few months of morning sickness=) With both of my kids I threw up the last time while I was in labor. Yuck. My sister breezed through morning sickness. On the other hand her kids were sick a lot when they were little, and mine not so much. We all have our challenges. And we should all support each other, because really until we all have peace, none of us will.

Jillian on

Not sure how or why this is going on, but the name Jillian is now by my posts (originally anonymous) and other posts by an another anonymous person. If you read them here and on other threads it’s funny because they clearly aren’t the same person!! Wth! I am not even Jillian anyway.

No, Maybe, do you know what’s negative? Someone posting a response to one person’s experience (Molly Sims) with their own (Bree) whining about how their experience was much worse and that Sims should “suck it up”.

– Jillian on January 30th,

Not me and yet I am giving this name. Anonymous, you wrote this, but scold Jillian? Hilarious!

Sun on

@Jaime, @Grandma of 9, @Elizabeth, @Mother of 2, @ Margo, @Anonymous (Jan. 29 & 30, 2012) — WELL SAID!

Annie on

I had morning sickness with all my pregnancies. I sympathize with anyone who has ever had morning sickness but sometimes the only way you can get through is remembering that there is always someone out there who is having a worse time than you. That said, experiencing nausea/vomiting now (non pregnant)is worse for me than any other ailment-I have been traumatised forever…..

Beth on

I wish I had taken monthly belly shots. I felt so gross and self conscience. I still do which is why there are so few shots of me with my son. I am usually the one taking the pictures. Beautiful picture!

Beth on

Oh, and I didn’t have one bit of morning sickness ;)

Kimberly on

I had morning sickness as well for 4 months 24/7 and lost weight too. That said, just because yours may have been worse, doesn’t mean what other people have gone through was a piece of cake. If you feel like crap, you feel like crap! Nausea on any level sucks…just sayin’.

Lovely picture, wishing her the best during her pregnancy.

Anonymous on

“Jillian”- That wasn’t me who wrote the “No. Maybe. Do you know what’s negative” post. That was a different anonymous (who, according to you, somehow got Jillian’s name attached). Luckily I haven’t been given anyone else’s name thus far! :)

I wouldn’t basically agree with someone and then turn right around and scold them. I maybe be a bit ditzy at times, but I’m not that silly! :)

Jillian on

I figured out why they are giving me the name Jillian. I just jumped on a public network after being on this page under anonymous forever. Turns out, a Jillian, also has used this network. I know this to be the case because I had my cousin go on (she’s never been on this site) and sure enough…….shows her as Jillian too. Quite ridiculous if you ask me.
