Stars With A Big Belly...

Apparently its now cool to be pregnant and sport a big belly in Hollywood these days as reported by Xinhua. See the pictures including the porky Brittany Spears, here.

When my wife was pregnant the first time, we felt compelled as anal retentive firstime parents to go to Lamaze classes to prepare for the special day. Of course the husbands participate to be more intune with their partners experience, lend support and experience the occasion.

One of the important aspects of the pregnancy experience is alerting the guys to the discomfort that your wife is feeling carrying around all the additional weight. The Lamaze teacher exhorted that we guys should appreciate the discomfort of the big belly and how difficult that it was making life for the newly pregnant with the additional 25 pounds.

Of course, at this point, I had to chime in that I didn't see what the big deal was since I had been carrying around an additional 25 pounds for the past decade and that I was coping just fine. After a "pregnant" pause by the teacher and a lack of a suitable retort, she continued with the class.
