Every expecting mom can learn a lot from Khloé Kardashian's pregnancy
Did Khloé Kardashian have a genuine problem or did she just pull a genius PR move on us? The 33-year-old's questions on pregnancy have earned her a fan-folllowing from moms and many pregnant women.
Khloé Kardashian is a month and a half away from delivering her first child with NBA player Tristan Thompson, and like many pregnant women, she has a million doubts about her pregnancy. Most women would think twice before asking people, "Hey, is it normal that baby bump looks small in the morning?" but not Khloé. She's used the world of social media to get real about her pregnancy problems and it's worked so well for her.
Good morning!! Does anyone else who has been pregnant or if they are pregnant feel that in the morning their bumps are smaller. But throughout the day there bumper gets bigger and bigger and bigger LOL asking for a friend 🤦🏼♀️— Khloé (@khloekardashian) February 22, 2018
On Wednesday, February 22, the reality TV star, who probably has her OBGYN's number on speed dial, turned to the world of Twitter instead and asked thousands of moms and pregnant women if their baby bump grows bigger as the day progresses. As absurd as the question may sound, it got many responses and turned out that many pregnant women actually find their bump growing bigger.
@khloekardashian yes girl!!!! And sometimes the position that I'm sitting in will make my bump look even bigger!!!!!! You're not alone! #bumptribe #mommiestogether #pregnancyprobz #babymamas #babiesof2018— Devin Carr (@xdevincarr) February 23, 2018
YEA!!! Omg I would take pictures of it in the morning and then at night when I got home and I swear it got bigger....— TaylorVirginia (@TaylorVCook10) February 23, 2018
Yes! I thought it was just me..My bump is smaller in the morning but at night it’s always bigger lol.. I feel huge by the end of the day 🤰🏻— Karina Chacón (@mrschacon05) February 23, 2018
Yes ! I’m 35 weeks today and this literally happens to me daily and I swear no one believes me 😂😂 @khloekardashian— michaela byron (@kaylab_26) February 23, 2018
One Twitter user wrote, "Totally normal and it changes day to day too. Some days I barely looked pregnant, other days I looked like I was having quads it’s all about where the babies sitting." Another fan informed Khloé that the bump gets bigger because gravity sets in.
Khloé, who has a loyal following for being an inspiration in the fitness arena, has now found a different set of fans: expecting moms who have several questions about their pregnancy and don't know whom to ask. A month before she posted this question on Twitter, she revealed that her cellulite looks more prominent now that she's pregnant.
I now have cellulite on my legs! Cute! Cute! "Pregnancy may make cellulite look worse for a while, because the weight that you gain in pregnancy could make it more noticeable."— Khloé (@khloekardashian) January 26, 2018
According to her, "Pregnancy may make cellulite look worse for a while, because the weight that you gain in pregnancy could make it more noticeable." Khloé's nuggets of information have made her Twitter account more exciting to follow. The 33-year-old's honest questions and information on pregnancy have turned her into a treasure house of information.
It makes me so happy that you are learning from it! We have even more awesome things coming up. 💕 https://t.co/IcF6Srp42s— Khloé (@khloekardashian) February 22, 2018
We mean, she got super honest about lovemaking during pregnancy. Most women don't speak a lot about how uncomfortable the act can get, but Kim's younger sis said she feels "useless" in bed in her third trimester and addressed the elephant in the room: there's no shame in not being able to move the same way.
And it doesn't just end there, Khloé, who has a pretty strict diet, revealed that she gives in to her cravings all the time. She wrote in January that she ate a bowl of salad and three bowls of cereal of lunch. That, in her life, is a lot of food but she also added that cereal is a healthy snack to eat whenever cravings set in.
We have to say that we love pregnant Khloé. After all, few celebrities are this honest about their pregnancy and baby related problems. The Keeping up with the Kardashians seems to get what most pregnant women want from their friends and family: empathy and not a rulebook of dos and donts.
