“For people that don’t know what it is, it’s basically extreme nausea, vomiting and dehydration, and [I’m] really, really tired,” Rose told her social media at the time. “I can eat a little bit more now because I’m in my second trimester, but not much, and I pretty much sleep all day.”

She added: “I try to, like, be cute and get my hair done, and then I just slept in it and messed it up. All in all, babies are a blessing. God bless women, man. We are resilient. We get through it. It’s really, really hard being pregnant. I’m not gonna lie.

“To all the women out there who just pop out babies like it’s nothing, God bless you guys because oh, my God, it’s a lot,” the model went on to say. “I want to be out. I want to be cute. I want to show off my belly. I can’t get off this couch. I’m just tired and want to barf all day. It’s just not fun. But it’s totally worth it. Totally, totally worth it. “

Duchess Kate suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum when she was pregnant with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Other celebrity moms, including Amy Schumer, and Kelly Clarkson have opened up about similar experiences.

Amy Schumer’s Naked Maternity Shoot is So Amy

Comedienne Amy Schumer had photographer Heather Sten shoot some maternity photos of herself for a New York Times profile and it is awesome!

Personally, I do not like the feature because I think that it is all over the place and is missing meat and potatoes I wanted the author to get from the funny woman.

Anyway, I am still happy to see her get a profile whilst preggers.

It has had a bit of a roller coaster of a pregnancy for Schumer who is expecting her and hubby Chris Fischer‘s first child. It has been marked by hospitalization for extreme morning sickness.

So the bookend to her 40 weeks is this totally unconventional shoot that features the I Feel Pretty star in the puff undressing as she frolicked in the rain running towards a gaggle of geese.

She captioned a series of photos of the spread:

On a chilly Nola morning it’s best to chase ducks with nothing weighing you down except a baby. Photo by @heathersten for the @nytimes on a rainy night it’s also a good idea. Thank you @zinomanjason for your profile on me. Brutally honest. My favorite kind of honesty. See you in another 10 when you write about me again. Article on nytimes.com

In another photo, the mom-to-be covers her bare breast with clumps of Spanish moss set to a forest backdrop. Deep!

Being naked was no big thing.

“As someone who has been told a million times they are fat and ugly, it does not matter!” the comedian, who’s expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer, told the New York Times. And she’s very much looking forward to meeting her little one, saying, “I think I will experience [some other level of joy] with a baby.”

Love it!

The Times They Are A-Changin’

WRITTEN BY: BOB DYLAN

Come gather ’round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You’ll be drenched to the bone

If your time to you is worth savin’

Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics

Who prophesize with your pen

And keep your eyes wide

The chance won’t come again

And don’t speak too soon

For the wheel’s still in spin

And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’

For the loser now will be later to win

For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don’t stand in the doorway

Don’t block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’

It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don’t criticize

What you can’t understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is rapidly agin’

Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn

The curse it is cast

The slow one now

Will later be fast

As the present now

Will later be past

The order is rapidly fadin’

And the first one now will later be last

For the times they are a-changin’

‘Fresh Off the Boat’ Writer Ali Wong Did Stand Up while Pregnant; Instant Hit!

ali-wong

Doing a Netflix special while seven months pregnant and building an entire set around the state of being pregnant was a brilliant move by comedienne Ali Wong. Since the release of  her special Baby Cobra (a take on Wong’s favorite yoga pose) last May, the Fresh of the Boat writer has been selling out her stand up shows all across the nation.

It’s raunchy humor and per an Elle magazine feature on her,  the jokes “range from trapping her Harvard Business School husband, to the ingredients for a perfect marriage (e.g., mutual racism), and why housewives are the geniuses of our time.”

 

Wong, who has appeared in Chelsea Handler’s Are You There, Chelsea? and Inside Amy Schumer, is among those ultra hard working celebrities, especially for the way she embraced it at a time when most would probably take a break from the road.

“Pregnancy for a working woman is generally perceived as a weakness. You’re tired at work, and then you have to take time off afterward to recover from the birth, and care for the baby. I’m lucky because my boss, the showrunner at Fresh Off the Boat, was really cool about me taking time off, but I was still nervous about having that “maternity leave” conversation,” she told Elle. “Every woman is. [And] I had so much anxiety about my stand-up career taking a big hit, so I wanted to use my pregnancy as a source of power and turn it into a weapon instead of a weakness. When you’re pregnant, you’re hungry, tired, and fat, so you have this “I don’t give a fuck” attitude that lends itself really well to performance. You let go of all dignity and shame, and it’s beautiful.”

The half Vietnamese/Half Chinese-American credits Alicia Keys for empowering her.

“There’s a BET Awards tribute to Prince, where Alicia Keys sings ‘Adore‘” Wong explains. “She climbs up on the piano, kicks her feet up in the air, and sings with such passion—all pregnant and powerful—and it really inspired me.”

And since giving birth to daughter, Mari, in November 2015, Wong kept motherhood in her stand up routine.

And it’s working.

 “I’ve been going up on stage in my sweatpants, with no makeup, looking like Vietnamese Nell, talking about my real-ass experience with breastfeeding, the nanny search, and mommy groups,” she humorously shared.

On seeing her billboards all over cities, Wong said they made her miss pregnancy.

“People are so nice to you when the baby is inside your body. They treat you like a reproductive goddess. They open doors for you [and] don’t let you carry heavy stuff,” she explained. “Then when the baby comes, nobody cares about you, and society treats you like garbage. You walk into a restaurant with a stroller and everyone rolls their eyes.”

Aint’ that the truth!?
