Well, it looks as though another pregnant celebrity has decided to go ahead and brag about how perfect her life is. Bachelor Pad host Melissa Rycroft has managed to “stick it” to millions of exhausted and uncomfortable expecting women by saying, “I have no cravings, no aversions, smells don’t bother me, no morning sickness, none of that. I’ve really gotten lucky. Not even heartburn.”
Hmm…nothing at all? Not even one tiny little craving for a ho-ho or a ding-dong? Either Melissa is extremely lucky, like she says, or she feels the need to lie about having a flawless and easy pregnancy because of the pressure to be perfect in Hollywood.
If her symptom-free pregnancy wasn’t annoying enough, Rycroft also says that she hasn’t gained any weight besides her “baby belly.” She claims that she is eating healthy and working out and that it “seems to be working” for her.
Does this seem unfair to anyone else? If she doesn’t have morning sickness or heartburn or even cravings, then shouldn’t she at least blow up like a balloon just to even things out for the rest of us?
Melissa also says that she and husband, Tye Strickland know the sex of their baby, but are choosing to keep it a secret for now. Ok, I’ll at least give her the benefit of the doubt on that one. There aren’t many surprises in life anymore, so I guess staying mum on her baby’s gender is sort of cute.
All I know is that I can’t wait to hear how Rycroft’s first few weeks with a newborn baby go. I’m sure it will be something to the effect of how he/she slept through the night from day one, never cries, and that his/her diapers smell like rose petals.
