Headlines today August 2nd is Melanie Brown aka Scary spice is “Eating for England” during her 3rd pregnancy.
Mel admits she has put on a whopping 64lbs which is 29kg. This is reported not to worry her as she knows she is active and will be able to get the extra pregnancy weight off.
What are your thoughts on this?
Here are mine:
Firstly she has put on a lot of extra pregnancy weight and may have increased her chances of developing gestational diabetes with such rapid weight gains.
She may have also increased diastasis recti-abdominal separation and increased her chances of developing stretch marks. These are just 3 reasons why not to put on extra pregnancy weight.
I don’t think this is a good advert for other pregnant women. Although on the other hand we generally see the opposite of stars, so which is best? We need to see the middle ground more often as I know women are influenced by the stars.
Mel B may have also started off at a lower weight than most women and if she was underweight at the start of her pregnancy then she may have not packed on as many extra kilos as the recent article suggests?
Women have to remember that Mel B is normally active and will have lots of professional help after the birth of her baby. So although it will not be easy for Mel to lose the extra weight, she will have many helpers.
What do you think, has Mel B put on too much weight?
