As a member of the Sisterhood of the Motherhood, I have seen enough!

Dear Kim Kardashian,
I would like to first start by saying as a rule, I try to avoid the news and media because 99% of it is false over-inflated bullshit to fill air time, but when I saw the repeated headlines about you and your pregnancy I tuned in to see what the noise was all about.  All I have to say is... those motherfuckers! What the hell is wrong with them? So what if you are gaining weight and a little hormonal, you are GROWING A HUMAN INSIDE OF YOUR BODY! Girl there is no such thing as a pregnancy filled with happy days, rainbows and unicorns!  It’s more like hormones, cravings, back aches, swollen everything and exhaustion, with a side of headaches, constipation, hemorrhoids and stuffed duck discomfort 24/7.
I am here to tell you pregnancy is all fucked up, and I mean that in the most Girl-you-are-blessed-you-are-going-to-have-a-baby way possible.  But that is just it, you are the sole lifeline to a growing baby in your body.  Hell yeah you are going to gain weight, feel like shit and have hormones that are raging like a pile of crackheads at a sold out methadone clinic. I was a hot ass mess while I was pregnant and regularly wanted to punch everyone in the face.  I commend you for managing to hold it together so well living under the media microscope!
Every pregnancy is different from the next, so don’t let anyone tell you to suck it up or get over yourself, because no one but you truly knows what you are feeling, nor what your body needs. So YOU do what YOU gotta do to grow YOUR baby. This pregnancy thing lasts 10 long hot mess months. When it gets almost too uncomfortable to bear, don’t forget, ‘This Too Shall Pass’, and when it does you will have the most beautiful baby. 
My best advice for you right now, as if you need any more, is to enjoy the feeling of your baby in your belly.  Embrace every hiccup, kick and every crazy acrobatic flip, because it's beautiful and magical and you will miss it.  Rub your baby in your belly and talk to him, hold your belly with pride and don't lose your focus on what you are doing... becoming an amazing mother.  Drown out the noise of the talking heads. Listen only to your heart and doctor.  Most of all, TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS, because ten times out of ten that is going to be the best answer.
Lastly, haters gonna hate. You know that. The media microscope you live under must be suffocating you right now. I have no doubt the haters writing the stories about you are a pile of dumb ass guys and spinster bitches, because anyone who has been through pregnancy and childbirth would not be so rude and insensitive! I mean for fuck’s sake, who the hell can grow a baby while staying the same size and rocking a smile the whole time?
Don’t worry, there is a silver lining to all of this media scrutiny…even with your big ol' pregnancy boobies and ass you are gorgeous, I dare say one of the most naturally beautiful women in this world, so those dumb ass reporters are going to have to eat shit when you and your famous curves bounce back from your pregnancy like a BOSS! For that reason, make sure you write down the names of the haters so when it’s time for them to eat shit for talking shit, you can ship off a shit filled diaper to each one of them.  
Seriously, Kim you are going to bounce back like a boss. A boss with a beautiful baby. So no worries about the weight gain or maternity clothes attacks, because in just a few short months you are going to be a bad ass momma with a bad ass baby making all of this more than worth it. 

Best wishes to you on your last couple of months of pregnancy. 



P.s I wrote a blog while I was pregnant called, Tired of Being PregnantPlease read it when you are frustrated so you will know you are SO NOT ALONE on this crazy journey!  It took me 55 pounds, some crazy raging hormones and many sleepless nights to make my son, but dammit it was SO worth it! 

Here is me the day before I delivered...

and here is my beautiful bad ass boss baby. 

Just you wait until your bad ass boss baby gets here...

I've always been taught that if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all...so I won't.

You're still awesome though.

While I try to stay away from "trash" tv (I am laughing out loud at myself right now!), I do follow those Kardashian sisters. I think it's the bond those girls have that keep me watching and interested. It's very sweet. I have seen many a posts on FB making fun of her shoe wear and her dresses and anything else during pregnancy. It's kind of strange. I mean, with feet that swollen, there is no shoe, heel or not, that will fit! I was barely able to even wear flip flops for the last month. Those smashed my feet too. She is damned if she does or doesn't in the media. It's part of her choice to live in the public spotlight that she receives criticism, and hopefully doesn't put any stock into any of it. She's wealthy, has that amazing sister bond and who knows what else happy in her life. With all of that said, I don't feel bad for her. --amanda

I feel bad because I remember the emotional roller coaster of pregnancy. No one deserves to be attacked during this super delicate time.

The sad thing is as much as I would like to believe that just men and spinisters are relishing in Kim's pregnancy struggles I believe that lots of mothers and mothers to be are partaking. I think women feel so much pressure to be perfect even while pregnant and are so tired of being compared to celebrities who make it look so easy that they bash Kim and others like Jessica Simpson just to feel superior. Certainly not a justification but I think a lot of insecurities have fueled this fire. I think more women should take your approach. We should build each other up not tear each other down.

I'm not a fan of the Kardashian public image... (I don't know the real Kim Kardashian, and I don't pretend to know if her public persona is her real persona) but really, so what if she gains a ton of weight? That's really between her and her doctor. Everyone else can just get over it.

That is EXACTLY how I feel. I just remember how hard pregnancy was for me... the media needs to back off backhands.

Hahaha! You are so right about ALL of it!

I especially agree with enjoying the feeling of your baby moving, hicupping, etc. I had gas the other day and totally thought about that!
