Jillian Harris gets real about pregnancy & pooping — and we love it
Jillian Harris is here to let everyone know the dirty details of pregnancy. The former Bachelor contestant talked to Us Weekly about the changes her body is going through while pregnant, and not all of it is pretty. During her frank discussion, she mentioned fellow Bachelor alum, Ali Fedotowsky, who seems to be having the opposite problems than her.
Harris said, “If you read her blog, she talked about being constipated, and I’m like, ‘I’m the exact opposite! I haven’t pooped this much in my entire life!’”
So, no leaving anything to the imagination!
Harris, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Justin Pasutto, didn’t stop dishing the details there. She also said, “The first trimester I felt sick and gross and didn’t want to eat. I was just expecting… I would have pregnancy symptoms through the entire nine months, but you don’t really.”
I just want to take a second to appreciate Harris for keeping it real about her pregnancy. So many celebrities (I’m looking at you, Gwyneth, and your painless pregnancy tips) talk about how magical pregnancy is when, in reality, it’s strange and foreign and makes your body do weird things. The result is definitely magical, but I can’t believe that having a human growing inside your body is a completely effortless process. We need more honest mothers-to-be to talk about the whole thing. We need to know what we’re really getting into!
Harris is also looking on the bright side of all these changes to her body — specifically getting to show off her baby bump this summer. She confessed, “When I found out I was pregnant, I bought 12 different bikinis because I was so excited to have my bump out.”
I say good for her! And good for all the women who are determined to give all the details about pregnancy — the good, the bad and the gross.
