“I had a buttered Pop Tart this morning. I’m eating a lot of stuff that I ate in my childhood. Kraft Mac n’ Cheese, Pop Tarts, Cap’n Crunch. Everything’s filled with sugar.[I] give into my cravings. I’m like, ‘Yeah, I can do it. We’ll worry about the rest afterwards’.”
Oh, totally my kind of girl. Buttered Pop Tarts? Never had ’em, but now I’ll have to try. Macaroni and cheese and Cap’n Crunch? Yum. Now I need to go out to the store and get some Cap’n Crunch. With CRUNCH BERRIES. NOM NOM NOM.
No, but seriously, it’s really awesome that Jess is all “I’m going to eat what I want and not worry about putting whatever weight I put on on” because though she’s definitely bingeing on high-calorie, sugary, carbohydrate-laden foods, she’s probably loads better off than the pregnant moms-to-be who, you know. Don’t eat. And their babies come out looking like they’re about to hit the runway for next season’s fall fashion line, and their moms are ready to hit the runway for this season’s spring line, like, last month.
My personal pregnancy cravings have included a lot of tuna, lemon ice, soda (which I generally despise), spaghetti and meatballs (which, if you know me personally, is par for the course; I could eat that garbage every day regardless), bananas, and Starbucks brownies. And I’m sure my son is going to come out just fine, you know? Food is food.
Anyway, you go, Jess. I’m pulling for you one way or the other. Take the weight off, don’t take the weight off, it’s all the same to me. You look great and your baby’s going to be one special kid, too.
