Jessica Simpson has at least one more month of “big blob” pregnancy left

I cannot even begin to emphasize the wave of sympathy and nausea that I feel for Jessica Simpson in these photos. These are from the weekend – I just never got around to covering them with all of the Oscar stuff. I mean, obviously, we can talk about how HUGE she is, but she’d been carrying really big for months now. Jessica was never going to be a small pregnant girl – she was always going to be all boobs, all belly, all ass. I feel for her, and I admire that she still trying to wear cute clothes and cute shoes, because if I was this pregnant, I would just be hanging out in bed in a giant nightgown, crying.

Anyway, CB has been covering most of the Jessica news lately just because imagining what it would be like to be THIS pregnant kind of makes me sick to my stomach. I’m that girl – the one whose gag reflex is triggered at the mere mention of an epidural. CB has previously talked about the tabloid stories involving Jessica allegedly dropping out of her Lamaze class, and her alleged fights with Eric Johnson about scheduling a C-section. In a newish interview, Jessica doesn’t talk about all of that, but she does talk about feeling like a “big blob.” She’s due in late March/early April, by most accounts.

When Jessica Simpson tunes in for the premiere of NBC’s Fashion Star March 13, her body won’t look anything like it does now.

“I wasn’t pregnant when we shot it. It will be amazing to see myself with a waistline,” the 31-year-old said during a conference call Thursday. “I’ll be like a big blob sitting on the couch watching myself thin.”

Simpson will mentor 14 contestants alongside fellow fashion designers Nicole Richie, 30, and John Varvatos; supermodel Elle Macpherson, 47, will host.

“Teaming up with this show was a perfect fit,” Simpson said. “I couldn’t turn it down because I felt like it was great for my collection, but it was also important for me to talk to these up-and-coming designers and mentor them and kind of show them the ropes and really try to lead them in the right direction.”

Now that she’s expecting her first child with fiance Eric Johnson, Simpson said she’s thinking of creating a maternity line for the Jessica Simpson Collection.

“The point of launching a maternity line, for me, is to do something different,” Simpson explained. “I’m not buying any maternity clothes. I’m wearing all clothes that come in bigger sizes. I really want to make a maternity line that’s comfortable, but really stylish for people, because I believe that we all deserve to feel good and look good.”

[From Us Weekly]

If Jessica and Beyonce put out competing maternity lines, which one will have cuter clothes? I’d say Jessica – for two reasons. One, Jessica knows what it’s like to be pregnant (whereas I’m still doubtful about Bey’d pillowy bump). Two, while Jessica doesn’t always clothe herself properly, I believe her general style is rather cute, and that it would translate well into a maternity line. Not so much for Bey.

PS… Doesn’t everyone love how Jessica’s purses are getting larger with every month of her pregnancy? By the time of her due date, she’ll just be carrying a big Hefty bag as a purse.

    Poor thing, hope she drops soon

    • Jessica says:

      I know… she looks so painful!!

    • Lindy says:

      Took the words right outta my mouth! :) I get short of breath just looking at these pics of her. Poor thing! My tardy kiddo stayed way up high like that almost til the bitter end. Even though I didn’t gain a ton of weight and jogged (gently with a doc’s approval) through much of my pregnancy, I still had a hard time catching my breath sometimes. Kid was wedged way the eff up in my lungs!

      How is she walking on those damn crazy shoes, is what I wanna know!? I mean, obviously she’s got it under control, so no judgment from me, but I’d have fallen off my feet if I’d attempted that:)

    • Dena says:

      She’s padded. Remember she has a Weight Watchers deal coming up :)

  2. KLO says:

    She looks cute. I wish her a peaceful pregnancy.

  3. Chatcat says:

    Having had 3 children myself I can relate, but honestly as big as I felt I really never ever was that big! I never made it full term with any of my 3 boys but I do feel bad for her and I agree Kaiser I think I’d go into hiding until delivery…jeez.

  4. Laura says:

    She does look good for carrying so big, I just wish she’d lay off the high shoes. With that belly, I’m afraid she’s going to trip!

  5. Jenna says:

    I think one reason she looks SO large is a simple truth most folks don’t consider.

    The girl is TINY. 5’3. Now picture someone that small, holding in their hands a normal, healthy, 7lb baby. Go for average length… 15 inches. The baby ALONE – not including all the bits that actually hold a kid inside his mum – is a 1/4 of her body size. Of COURSE she is going to look hugely pregnant after the 4th month. I wish everyone would get off the poor girls back. She’s fine – she’s what you look like when you are petite and you get pregnant.

    Which is why I’m incredibly grateful to be 6’2 and married to a slightly shorter man. Here’s hoping I’ll be like my tall cousins who, when walking into the hospital IN labor – was thought by the nurse to be just doing a walk thru for in a few months because she barely looked pregnant. Until the yelling restarted, anyway. Tall gal – room for the baby to sprawl out. Tiny gal – you’re going to see jr a few moments coming around the corner before mum. Just basic understanding of spatial differences..

    • Mr. StinkyFishFace says:

      Eh… Being small doesn’t equate getting that big. I’m 5 foot tall and was 120 when I got pregnant with my girls and didn’t look like that. I looked like I swallowed a basketball. Both kids were 7 1/2 lbs and 19inches long (average height is 20 inches). I love Jess, but I think she’s passed the healthy pregnancy weight and is pushing it, maybe she has GD or is having twins?

      • Delta Juliet says:

        Ditto here. I’m shorter than her, both of my boys were overdue, and I NEVER got that big. I’m not criticizing her at all, I’m just saying, I don’t think it’s a height thing.

      • Laura says:

        Same here, two babies of average size and not that big either.

      • petitemal says:

        I agree with both the comment about small frames and the one about small not necessarily equating getting so big. I’m a little Asian girl (5’2 and 110 lbs) and my son was 8 lb 5 oz and 21 inches long at birth. Like Jessica, I showed early and carried big, and was freaken HUGE by the time I finally popped — much bigger than my larger framed friends who carried similarly-sized babies. However, while my boobs and belly were gigantic (E cup during pregnancy, F-H while nursing) like hers, the rest of me didn’t look nearly as big — and I gained A LOT of weight, especially for my frame. However, my entire 45 pound weight gain was definitely all baby weight, and I was down to my pre-pregnancy weight less than two weeks post-partum. I think it’s going to take Jessica a lot longer than that. She was kinda on the chunky side pre-pregnancy, and it kinda sounds like she’s one of those women who use gestating as an excuse to stuff their face with whatever they want.

        So yeah, part of her blob-ness may be due to her smaller frame, but the other larger (haha) part is due to, I dunno, stuffing her face with buttered Pop-tarts and crap.

      • Nikster says:

        I’m 5’3″, carried twins almost to term, and never got anywhere near that huge. If she has another month to go…scary.

      • operagirl says:

        That’s what I was wondering — she is BIG big, and her legs don’t seem to be. Just Belly and Boobs. Maybe it *is* twins.

    • Umlaut says:

      I’m 4’10″ and never looked like that. I am fit but busty and got to a 32G bra with my pregnancies. But I only gained 30 pounds with the first and 20 with the second, and my boys were average: 8 pounds and 7 pounds 4 ounces, respectively. I honestly think part of it is genetics / just how she carries, and part of it IS weight gain.

      Poor girl looks miserable — I gasped when I saw these pictures!

      • bamafresh says:

        I am also 4’10″ and actually gained 50 lbs all in front, and didn’t look like that. I hope she doesn’t have too far to go!

      • Umlaut says:

        Yay, little people! I don’t often meet someone my size. I feel like five pounds for us is fifteen on the average size person.

      • bamafresh says:

        I know! Just a little weight on us is so harsh. And finding jeans…forget about it!I’m pregnant again and being much more careful this time. I’m shooting for 25 lbs max.

      • Umlaut says:

        Congratulations! And good luck :-)

    • Coco says:

      Wait a minute…the average length of a newborn is 15″? I have had five kids and 4 were 21 was 19 3/4 inches. I’m betting your average is a wee “short”.

      • MsCatra says:

        I think OP meant that her baby is probably currently around 15″, which might still be a little on the small side, as it’s about the average for 32 weeks and if Jessica is due late March/early April she’s around 35-37 weeks. Or maybe OP meant the size of the baby all curled up in there?

    • Jessica says:

      Jessica also eats JUNK FOOD (A lot of it). That is why she is so huge.

      She told Racheal Ray that she eats toasted peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and them puts salt on her hand and licks it off.

      Well this is pretty much what she eats:

      She told People that she eats Cantoulope with salt, Fruit Loops, Fruity Pebbles, Brownies, etc.

    • Carolyn says:

      I’m the same height as Jess and I didn’t look anything like her when pregnant. Either she’s got a huge baby or two in there or she’s seriously been eating for 4. With all the pressure that’s going to be on her to lose weight with her contract, she’s eating like there’s no tomorrow because she’ll be on rations as soon as the baby is born.

  6. Jackie says:

    brutal. you gotta really want a kid to go through that!

    i was not meant to have children. ugh, can’t even imagine.

    • ladybert62 says:

      I am with you Jackie!

    • Samigirl says:

      It’s not so bad. Your body releases hormones and other stuff so you forget how bad it actually was and want to procreate again. I had an *awful* childbirth experience, and I’m still like…meh, could have been worse, haha.

      Of course, not everyone wants to be a mom, and that’s ok too. Just wanted to let you know, if you decide you want kids, it’s really not that bad.

      • Tiffany27 says:

        Sami I love your pregnancy posts! You’re helping my pregnancy fears to decline….. Only by a little though lol.

  7. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    I can’t help, I think she might be pregnant with twins. Mariah and JLo were just as huge…

  8. Devon says:

    Epidurals aren’t bad. I had one with both of my hip surgeries and it was virtually painless. They numbed the area and then all I felt was my legs getting tingly and warm. The only downside was that I have a curved spine and he missed a few times. THAT hurt. The second time around, they knew exactly where to stick it and I didn’t feel a thing. The worst part was when the freezing came out! I was feeling no pain, obviously, and was refusing more pain meds. As the freezing came out, my leg hurt like a MOFO and I was screaming for duladid!

    • NYC_girl says:

      What’s the “freezing?”

      • Petunia says:

        I’m presuming that Dev is referring to the medicine being injected into her as being freezing cold. Sometimes meds are really cold when they’re injected and they sting/hurt going in, as a result.

        I felt nothing from the epidural because the labor pain trumped all. Despite the fact that I was horrified to get an epidural beforehand, I never noticed it, nor the episiotomy. I guess that’s the good part of being in so much pain elsewhere!

      • Devon says:

        I meant to say when the anesthetic wore off. It wears off slowly and obviously is masking all the pain that’s going on. When it wore off, my leg started to hurt REALLY bad. I was an idiot and should have taken the pain meds when they offered instead of being a trouper.

        It’s the weirdest feeling NOT being able to feel or move your legs. With my good leg, I tried moving it and there was nothing. Very, VERY odd.

  9. Blue says:

    Poor thing, she looks so uncomfortable. :( I remember that time, just wanted it to be over and done with. It looks like she’s mainly belly and boobs. She’s still carrying high, what a relief she will feel when the baby drops.

  10. the original bellaluna says:

    Poor Jess! I really feel for her. I was big too (I have big babies and I’m short-waisted) but I’m still tall! Poor thing is only 5’2″ or 3″!

    Get out of those shoes, honey, and put those feet up.

  11. Seymour Butts says:

    The more I see stories like this, the more I KNOW that Beyonce was never pregnant! I’m not saying that everyone becomes the same size, but this pregnancy has gone on for the correct amount of time, as has Jennifer Garner’s – NOT Beyonce’s. She seemed to have been pregant for about two months? lol

    • leigh says:

      you are so right. as someone who has had 2 babies themself I know for a fact beyonce a was never pregnant. she just never got big enough for a full term pregnancy. Why some ppl feel they have to lie is beyond me… and its insulting to all the real pregnant woman out there.

    • TG says:

      Agree, Bey was pregnant for what 3 months? And poor Jess has been gestating for 18 months it seems she is well on her way to having an elephant. Maybe she is having twins? I haven’t seen enough photos of her from various angles to predict that though. And I too pass out at the site of blood and needles and when they put the IV in my arm for my delivery I nearly passed out and caused the baby’s heart rate to plummet and things just got worse from there so ended up with a C-section and all was and is well.

    • Tiffany says:

      Wow, talk about insensitive! Beyonce had had a MISCARRIAGE before, so they waited to tell about the pregnancy until later on…to make sure everything was ok.

      It is completely absurd to judge a woman based on comparisons with other people’s pregnancies. Every woman is different, not to mention that Beyonce was seriously more fit than Jessica when she got pregnant.

      • OhLawd says:

        ITA. Beyonce had a dancer’s body when she got pregnant. Jess hasn’t had one since Dukes of Hazzard.

      • sarah says:

        Tiffany exactly
        Why is this site so obsessed with beyonce.
        Every time she has to be brought up gosh.
        If she was or wasn’t pregnant who cares.
        Are people that stupid , that they think all women look the same.
        enough already.

  12. Jess says:

    Honey, I got an epidural when I was dilated to 9 and not progressing…needles nor fear of death would’ve kept me from wanting the pain to stop. I lost my ever-lovin’ mind and was screaming my head off..I had a thought that I’d rather leap through the 5th floor window than continue an hour or more of that “labor”. I think they never turned down the pitosin drip…but yeah. Needles are the least of your worries!

    • Maripily says:

      Exactly! lol The thought of a needle in your spine sounds awful, but labor is so excruciating that you’d be willing take a needle in the eyeball to stop the pain. I got as big as Jessica with my last ( third) pregnancy. I started at 115 pounds and ballooned to 165! The weight came off quickly once I delivered, but man was I miserable in those last few months.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      You ladies are awesome for being honest about pregnancy and labor. It seems like you only ever hear about how great it is to be pregnant. Ultimately I think it does a disservice to women to perpetuate this idea-that pregnancy is easy and all rainbows and unicorns. That being said, I’m sure it IS completely wonderful for some women-it just depends on a lot of different factors-genetics, family support, emotional state, physical state etc etc. Anyway, thanks to you ladies for keeping it real! :)

    • novaraen says:

      Yes…^^^this exactly. You have ZERO cares about the size of a needle you can’t even see going into your spine when you feel as if your splitting in two. The nurses I had with me were so good that I actually felt nothing. They say that the more you can relax forward and open up the area between your spinal discs…the less pain you feel. I must have relaxed enough. :)

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      I had a 72 hour labor on pitocin and could not WAIT for the epidural. Nothing compared to the unending hell of induced labor. I was big pregnant too, even though I worked, rode and worked out. So uncomfortable, my feet used to swell two sizes in a day.
      I love having babies, but hated being pregnant. Epidurals are the least of your worries. Going to the bathroom for the first time with stitches is way scarier!

    • Miffits says:

      Oh Tiffany I hear ya! Totally forgot about that first apres-labour bathroom visit.

      Yeah, fear of needles doesn’t even equate at the time. I fainted in my prenatal classes when they described (vividly) how they insert an epidural. When it came to labour I told the anasthetist (and I quote) ‘SHUTUP AND GET ON WITH IT!’ I was also off my face on gas and air. Magical time, magical.

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      Thank you so much for the laugh, and the flashbacks! I was dealing with my labor pains, but I wasn’t dilating, I couldn’t relax, the nurses kept saying how quiet I was. After 12hrs hard labor I didn’t care about that giant needle, or that jerk for showing to me lol! As soon as the epidural hit I went from 2 to 10cm in a flash, within 30mins my son was born…

      P.S. OriginalTiffany, you’re my hero! :D

  13. Mr. StinkyFishFace says:

    Oh man, after two pregnancies I can safely say I can’t even imagine what she’s going through. I carried all in my tummy and even with the 30lbs, I don’t think I got that uncomfortable. She looks like she’s put on well over the recommended weight, reminds me of Mila Jovovich. Either way I wish her a safe and happy delivery!

  14. Dawn says:

    Im scared to death of needles but in the middle of contractions the epidural is honestly the least of your worries. My husband almost passed out but with freezing I barely noticed.

    • Blue says:

      I’m the same way. I hate needles, I’m scared even getting a flu shot. But when that first contraction hit, oh boy. Then having my cervix checked in the middle of a contraction. I was ready to punch everybody. I was soooo happy to get that morphine, then after i got my epidural I was in heaven.

  15. April says:

    Seymour- you are 100% correct. I don’t understand why people question the obvious. She was never pregnant. I think Jessica just wants to surprise everyone with twins. I hope. She’ll be a great mom. I’m really happy for her!

  16. fabgrrl says:

    I’m trying to imagine how sore her beasts must be. Mine got HUGE and hurt constantly at the end of my pregnancies, but hers put mine to shame. Ouch!

  17. tifygodess24 says:

    I feel her pain , I was huge during my pregnancies. I am only 5’1″ so it looked like I attached a Mac Truck to my waist! Plus people always comment when you carry big early so I can’t imagine having to live that out in the public eye. I would just die.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      OMG! :D I was at the nail salon getting a mani/pedi shortly after the whole “OctoMom” mess came to light.

      I was maybe 6 months along and all the little ladies who do nails were asking me “How many do you have in there?” (I was mortified!)

    • gab says:

      I am about 5’3 and I always knew I was pregnant before any test because my boobs got so big! I had three pregnancies and three 8 lb babies. I carried so much fluid that when the doctors broke my water they were shocked. That is just how the ladies in my family are. There is no explanation for why women are so different in this regard. My best friend was pregnant twice, was about my same height and looked the same as I did. I guess by Hollywood standards where people think an anorexic looks good, Jess will always stand out. I’m sure she will lose the weight after some work. My friend and I have long been back to a normal size 6 range.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        lol! I knew as soon as my boobs hurt; no pregnancy test required.

        I gained 78 lbs with my first (I was underweight when I got pregnant, but still!!) and lost 46 lbs before I left the hospital 48 hours after delivery. The nurse weighed me on every scale in the ward, saying “I’ve NEVER seen ANYONE lose this much after delivery!”

        (And all three of mine were over 8 lbs, too!)

      • Brigitte says:

        Yep. I gained about 35 pounds with my 3rd pregnancy to 155, and the day after delivery my weight was 158, 3 pounds HEAVIER! Argh. That was a true bummer; it was all water weight that hadn’t left the building yet, so to speak.

  18. LIVEALOT says:


  19. WOM says:

    Poor girl. But on the plus side: no one is going to accuse her of faking being pregnant.

  20. Me says:

    She’s huge… but she doesnt look bad. Give the girl a break. She still looks better than the average pregnant woman.

  21. says:

    Still, not an excuse for those fug shoes…

  22. Kristine says:

    I was huge when pregnant and it was all in my belly for number two. I am an average 5’6″ and went up to 190 from 138. I was eating healthy too, some people just gain more weight when pregnant. Both my girls were over 8 lbs. I do believe part of the reason Jess looks so HUGE though is the fact that she isn’t wearing maternity clothes. With that belly mat clothes would look so much more flattering to her figure and there of plenty of cute styles out there now that don’t look like a tent. It made a huge difference on my belly if I wore mat verse non mat clothing.

  23. Agnes says:

    i totally vote for jessica’s maternity like! there aren’t enough fashionable and affordable maternity things out there. :)

    • cmc says:

      I do too! I bet it would be cute.

      Quick aside: doesn’t Nicole Richie have a maternity line? Or did she just model for one? Because if she does, and Jess knows that, that’s definitely throwing some shade at her costar.

  24. Holly:) says:

    Is she giving birth to an elephant? :O She’s massive.

  25. Lucy says:

    Love how she’s rocking the shoes! You go, girl!

  26. kay says:

    I was that big with my first, I gained about 75 pounds- it was awful. no complications thankfully, but it was hard to walk.
    I was huge.
    and those shoes! no way could I have worn those shoes.

  27. Delta Juliet says:

    Like I stated previously, I was overdue with both my boys….didn’t get anywhere’s near as big as her due to 9 months of throwing up, and I was SO UNCOMFORTABLE after 8 months. I can’t imagine how poor Jess must feel. I feel sick just looking at her.

  28. Nanz01 says:

    How the f*ck is she wearing those shoes?? She’s amazing. I’m pregnant right now and nowhere near as far along as her. I already feel like a “big blob” and uncomfortable. I wish her a speedy delivery and restful recovery.

    PS I would totally shop her maternity line. Maternity clothes suck.

  29. OhLawd says:

    Unclear why you guys always compare Jessica and Beyonce. Or Jessica and ANYbody for that matter. Jessica is humongous and is beyond comparison. Poor girl–this looks like the most uncomfortable thing ever.

  30. Ycnan says:

    OMG, Every women carries differently! You can’t compare yourself to anyone else. End of story.

  31. dorothy says:

    Bless her heart, she is gigantic. Another month of this and she won’t be able to walk. There is no way Beyonce was pregnant… no way.

  32. Petunia says:

    Wow, it looks like each boob must weigh 20 lbs each. Her back must be killing her for all of the extra weight she’s carrying. I’m all sympathy for her because it could well be that’s she’s carrying a biiiiig baby or two.

    As for who would do the better maternity line, I’m going to go with Beyonce, as long as she didn’t make the clothes too sexy. Jessica looks kind of frumpy to me in her maternity clothes. But I’ll bet her clothes WILL be comfortable. We’ll see.

  33. Lem says:

    I had to have the epidural 3+ times with both my deliveries as he kept missing. I just didn’t look at the needle. When he put my therma care heat wrap back in place I wanted to kiss him. I was huge like that with my son. overnight. I said “I think I’m pregnant” & immediately started swelling everywhere. I went from 115 to 250. The nurses would say things like ‘dayum’. She’s lucky it’s not summer. I can’t believe she hasn’t cut her hair

  34. sarah says:

    I guess my sister wasn’t pregnant too ,because she carried small and was back into her size 0 jeans a days later.
    Not every pregnant woman eats like a cow.
    Jessica was a slob before pregnancy , lord only knows how she will look afterwards.

    • Christy says:

      Count me in as a “slob” then as I’m bigger than a size O. In fact, I’m a size 8 or 10 depending on clothes brand. And I don’t eat like a cow, either, thank you very much.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Here we go with the requisite “size 0″ prepregnancy jeans story 😒

        It takes around 6 weeks for the uterus to contract back to the prepregnancy size of an orange. I highly doubt the veracity of the story.

      • DesertRose says:

        Exactly Morticians. My first pregnancy, I was a slob – I gained seventy pounds sitting on my ass watching tv – but my second pregnancy I was not. I’m 5’9 155 pounds, and was when I got pregnant with number two. I only gained 22 pounds, 19 of which I lost in the hospital. But there was no way in hell I was getting back into my size 9′s. My little man power nursed right out of the oven and I had super contractions the first night after delivery. I still managed to look like I had a cantaloupe stuffed in my abdomen the next day.

      • Isa says:

        After I had my first child my 12 year old SIL told me I still looked pregnant. This was about 2 hours after giving birth!
        With my 2nd child, the hospital was on lockdown because of a gunman and a woman patted my belly and asked when I was due. This was 3 days after my csection! It took about 2 weeks for my belly to flatten out.

      • dean travers says:

        Hey Christy? You Rock.

    • dean travers says:

      your sister is my new idol! i bet she’s skinny, beautiful, and looks 25 years younger than JS right? if only they would feature HER on these sites…alas…BTW, I recently gained almost 10 pounds, wanted to throw myself off a bridge, and than realized I looked younger, prettier, and more human…beeeeyotches that love to push the “fat” bashing agenda (with a pregnant woman no less) need to get a f’ing hobby.

      • Amy says:

        This! I wish more women would embrace that little bit of extra padding that makes you look younger and healthier. My mom is 50, and she looks about 40. That layer of chub does wonders.

  35. Christy says:

    Its funny how much smaller she looks in the pic where the dress looks redder rather than orange-ish. Are they two different photo agencies?

    Anyway, if she didn’t have those big boobs, she wouldn’t get so many “huge” comments, IMO. I wish her happiness, she still looks beautiful.

    • Christy says:

      Also, anyone notice how all pics of her are from that weird angle where you get the effect of belly from both the side and front. I swear, photogs are paid more to make her look as big as possible and try to get the worst angles of her. Poor girl

  36. Chell says:

    Clearly she has eaten one too many buttered pop tarts….WOWZA! She looks like she’s carrying triplets!

  37. TQB says:

    I’m shocked none of the amateur obstetricians have noted how small and not swollen her ankles and feet are.

  38. LeeLoo says:

    I get the feeling c-section is Jessica’s only option. She’s so tiny and that baby is so huge that I would not be surprised if she wouldn’t be able to spit that baby out.

    Comparing Beyonce’s pregnancy to Jessica’s is like comparing apples to oranges. I never believed any of the conspiracy theories regarding Beyonce anyways. Let’s compare: Beyonce is 5’10″ and has always had an athletic physique. I have no doubt she kept an extremely healthy diet and did not even begin to show until her final trimester. Jessica is 5’2″ 10 extra lbs make her look fat and normally she struggles big time to keep that 10 lbs at bay. I really doubt she has had a healthy diet during pregnancy so of course she looks huge and pregnant. In Africa, many women will look more like a pillowy bump Beyonce than a ginormous Jessica. It all boils down to genetics and health during the pregnancy.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      1) Bey is NOT 5’10″ she’s 5’7″;
      2) Bey has a “curvy” figure that she keeps “at bay” by being athletic; and
      3) Bey wasn’t pregnant.


  39. Umlaut says:

    I initially chose natural births largely because the thought of an epidural terrified me. After going through it and learning more about the process, I have to say, natural birthing is well worth it!

    • DesertRose says:

      I did both, epidural with the first, incorrectly placed non-working epidural with the second. It was great to have one numb leg, if only I could been numb everywhere else. I’m going to say natural childbirth is over rated, I felt like I was being torn in half and after it was done I had to have lidocaine shots so they could sew me up. However I was so exhausted that I didn’t enjoy the marathon two-hour first nursing session with my son – although the six hours of sleep we both had after fixed me right up.

    • Bodhi says:

      Ditto. I chose a water birth, partly because I HATE shots. I didn’t regret my decision during labor & I don’t regret it now. Natural childbirth isn’t for everyone, but, at least for me, it really wasn’t that bad

  40. mel2 says:

    I was big like Jessica, uncomfortable and just wanted the baby out! Good luck to her with the delivery and all.

  41. Happy21 says:

    I am thinkin’ poor, huge Jess isn’t having just one baby. I have a hard time believing there is only one child living in that womb.

    I will not be surprised if its twins….

    Or quadruplets for that matter!

    I love Jessica and would buy her maternity line if I were pregnant and she made one ;)

  42. Seagulls says:

    My c section was doctor ordered, and I didn’t get to start labor, so the sensation of the needle puncturing my dura? Yes, I remember it. Of course, the spinal wasn’t as effective as I’d like, so there are other sensations I won’t soon forget. Bluch. I am praying for a natural VBAC next time!

    Poor Jessica – I bet she wishes she hadn’t eaten buttered Pop Tarts.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      I had to have an epidural b/c of a c-section as well. It wasn’t too bad. My sister had had one for her back surgery and told me just to relax and breath, and she was right (at least for me) thank goodness!

  43. Daneen says:

    I carried large like Jessica – probably due to the fact that (like Jess) I’m 5’2″ and that bump has no where to go but out – so I feel bad for her. It’s hard when you don’t have a lot of height to distribute all that pregnancy weight gain. But Jess is doing herself no favors by wearing non-maternity clothes. When you’re that big, you just need to bite the bullet and wear appropriate clothes. It’s not like she can’t afford it.

  44. Nanz says:


    Oh nevermind. /rant

  45. Madrid says:

    Bad news for me, whenever I get pregnat I´m sure I´m gonna look exactly like her…

  46. kd sunshine says:

    Is there a possibility that she is carrying twins? It would explain things plus, in the picture, it almost looks like two bumps. Just wondering.

  47. Meanchick says:

    She’s kinda short though, right? It makes her look bigger. I’m only 5′ and when I was pregant I looked like I was smuggling 3 watermelons; 2 in my bra and one giant mutant one in my belly.

  48. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Agree, Asli!

  49. BerMan says:

    She looks beautiful.

  50. Penguin says:

    I think she looks lovely. Marian Carey was massive too and now she’s the thinnest she’s been for years.

  51. mia girl says:

    I feel for her. I am 5’2″ and also carried really big with my first. The only difference is that I did not have her natural breast size to start. And now, my goodess her breasts are huge.

    I can’t even imagine what they will swell to once her milk comes in! Wow.

  52. TXCinderella says:

    Wow! That poor thing, she is huge! She is going to have a hard time dropping that baby weight. I’ll bet some weight loss company will offer to pay her to lose the weight on their program.

  53. Jacq says:

    Im not scared of needles and, if it’s done correctly, the epidural doesn’t hurt. As a matter of fact, after nine months of being sober as a judge, that epidural was the best damn margarita I ever had (as I jokingly refer to it)! I’d get one every day, if I could. I, too, ended up with a Dr. ordered c-section, so ultimately it wasn’t even up to me.
    Can I just say that Jessica looks like the freakin’ Kool-Aid Man? But in fairness to her, does she HAVE to come through the wall ’cause the door isn’t an option anymore?

    • constance says:

      3 natural birth with 2 epid’s and 1 sober in the middle, I’ll take the Poppy Milk Margarita- tyvm!

      Sober delivery wasn’t bad in my experience, but I don’t think I’m a bigger person for refusing normal medical comfort in a hospital surrounded by high tech equipment. haha

      I think in this case, Jess is going to have a routine c-section and lipo combo. lol

  54. tiff says:

    Yikes! Seeing how big her boobs have gotten makes mine hurt. Hopefully she has some comfy bras for the rest of her pregnancy and after the baby comes.

    I’ve always liked Jessica. I think she will make an awesome mom.

    Also, I would buy maternity clothes designed by Jessica as opposed to Beyonce.
    I think Jess would make her stuff more comfortable and affordable. I’ve never really seen Beyonce and thought,”Wow. Her outfit looks comfortable.”

  55. Penguin says:

    I think she’s already got a deal with weight watchers.

  56. ginger says:

    God love her! I also carried my pregnancy like a house, really, I looked like a caricature of myself almost from month four on! My happy size C boobs went all the way up to a size H and have never been the same since! Interestingly enough, my body is similar enough to Jess’s to say maybe girls like us just carry babies this way??

  57. Courtney says:

    @Penquin Mariah also had a laundry list or complications and with twins your supposed to gain about 50lbs but Mariah gained more than 80 40 of which were water due to swelling. yes Jessica has a deal with weight watchers to help her loose the weight and besides Mariah is 5’9″ not 5’3″ and each of her twins even though born 5 weeks premautre were over 6lbs. hopefully Jessica doesn’t have gestational diabetes and rumor has it she’s having twin girls at the end of April. personally I think she has a right to keep that private if she wants to my mom was the same height and gained 65lbs with me and I was 21.5ins long and 7lbs 11oz if she is expecting twins they could end up about 7.5lbs each give Jess a break

  58. eileen says:

    I got this big with both of mine-baby #1 was 24 inches long! She broke her collarbone on the way out, poor baby. I feel for her-but she still looks beautiful-swollen but beautiful. THIS is what happens to some women and good for her for not hiding until she pops the baby out or hiring someone else to have it. Its hard work carrying that around and the last month you feel like hell-I woke up with throw up in my mough every night from reflux. Thank God for the hormone that hits your brain and makes those memories total haze so you’ll want to procreate more.

  59. Isa says:

    I had an epidural during contractions with my first child. It didn’t hurt and I fell asleep on the nurses shoulder. The scary thing was I jumped each time I was pricked, which you’re NOT supposed to do. I was out of it until it was time to push.

    My 2nd was a scheduled csection and I had a spinal. That HURT. I think it’s better if you’re having contractions, since the pain of the contractions are so bad they take away your fear. Most of the women I know whose only fear was the needle ended up getting an epidural.

  60. JessSaysNo says:

    I personally think she’s NOT too big! On the other hand I would never wear her maternity line. I feel that she is actually very self conscious (maybe because the world tells her shes HUGE and shes not) but she only wear huge sack dresses when shes preggo.

    I think she would look amazing in some fitted, bump hugging shirts. If she wanted to do something for a maternity line, she should make some sexy and cute maternity jeans. But I know her entire line will be chunky heels, huge cover-all dresses and enormous handbags.

    She needs to let that bump fly free! She’ll look all the better for it!

  61. YeahSure says:

    This is several pics now where I see an extra lower bump. Is it possible she’s expecting twins?

  62. irishserra says:

    Isa, I did the same thing with my second child. I was terrified of the needle, they explained the process, made me sign the paperwork and then kicked my husband out of the room. I was so terrified and I kept jumping and they nurse yelled at me.

    In the end, it wasn’t administered in time and I got to feel the entire experience.

    All I can say is that it’s amazing how we seem to forget about the pain long enough to consider pregnancy and childbirth again. We are nuts!

  63. Penguin says:

    @ Courtney – good point, I’d forgotten she’d had twins.

  64. Tweakspotter says:

    My thoughts exactly…are we sure there isn’t two in there??

  65. Bobbie says:

    Wow, these comments are making me feel better. I’m like the poster child for how not to do pregnancy. I had four babies, and each time I went from around 150 pounds (I’m 5’9) to 215 pounds. It was horrible. With my last baby, I got up to 220. I felt sick all the time, and the only thing that helped was eating (I know, weird and counterintuative). My doctor would always say- it just matters that you get the weight off. Which I did, but I wish I hadn’t made it so hard for myself!

  66. Orange Cone says:

    OhMyGod! For ONCE, chick is dressed nice…this color looks great on her.

  67. Granger says:

    Can someone tell me how Jessica Simpson is qualified to mentor up-and-coming fashion designers? I’m assuming these are people who’ve worked their asses off in art and fashion school. She has no formal training in design and a huge team of people who helped her launch her line. It just seems bizarre to me.

  68. crazycatlady says:

    I sure hope she’s having twins. Otherwise that’s about a 10-pounder! LOL.

    Hasn’t she been pregnant like twice as long as Beyonce was?

  69. kitty bye says:

    That is incredible? Did her sister look like that? How is that possible, what is going on in there? is this normal? I just have no experience seeing anyone like this & honestly that scares the mess out of me.

  70. Courtney says:

    Ashlee gained 52lbs with Bronx. yes it’s quite possible Jess could be having twins and as I said before hopefully she doesn’t have the medical problems with a twin pregnancy that Mariah Carey did and have to deliver over a month early and watch her children be in the nicu like Mariah did

  71. Jessica says:

    Don’t eat a lot of junk food and you wouln’t be as big as Jessica.

    I think she is using the pregnancy as an excuse to stuff her face with whatever she wants.

    • TXCinderella says:

      You are exactly right. I have the same body type as Jessica and when I was pregnant with my son, I cut out all junk food and soda. I ate a very healthy balanced diet and did not give in to cravings. I only gained 28 pounds and was able to lose it pretty quickly after I gave birth.

  72. dee dee says:

    It justnd seems that hillary and jessica have been pregnant FOREVER and its like Beyonce mentioned she was pregnant and then all of sudden she has baby Blue???!!!!! Does anyone else see this? didnt Beyonce have that baby really really quick? Quickest pregnancy ever. And these poor girls are suffering like normal pregnant woman. Just sayin…….

  73. J a X says:

    Jessica’s made a killing in the fashion industry but she has no style, no charisma, and comes off as not too bright. lol That said, I like her better than most celebs. Hope she and baby have an easy delivery.

  74. Lin says:

    Looking at Jessica reminds me I was fat first pregnancy, skinny the second. Eating habits were about the same each time but I think the difference might have been all the extra activity (chasing my toddler around, etc.). But Jessica DOES seem extra large. She’s got to be eating for at least three.

  75. Ogechi says:

    I love both Beyonce & Jessica.

  76. normades says:

    I don’t aprove of Jess’s nutritional choices, but I really don’t think she looks THAT big and if she’s having twins that would explain a lot.

    Just because she’s short doesn’t mean she’d have a harder time pushing it out vaginally. I’ve known TINY THIN women who delivered BIG babies vaginally and bigger gals that had to have c-sections because their pelvis’ weren’t large enough. I think our outsides don’t always show how our bone structure is inside.

  77. die elepha beth says:

    I am liking the last photograph of her.
    Her hair looks nice too. A bit on the thin side, but it’s shiny and pretty and squeaky. And wow, she’s rocking them shoes off! Whoa momma. It looks treacherous, but she looks confident in it (I mean, I look at the picture and I don’t have this irrational urge to reach towards the screen; happened before, when I see people’s uncomfortableness being “telegraphed” through the pixels).

    And a very big YAY for her maternity line. they look FAB.

  78. mew says:

    Wow, she’s enormous (and it’s not a negative thing, just as long as she would be interested in health too), VERY different from pregnancies such as Posh, Giselle or Rachel Zoe.

  79. Minxx says:

    Gosh, I gained 35 lbs with my second pregnancy (16 with first but the baby was premature) and I thought I was huge! The kid was a bit over 8 lbs. The first 25 lbs came off in weeks and the rest with breastfeeding – he was always hungry! Jessica is definitely overindulging and she’ll regret it later on.
    As to epidural.. I had pitocin so I was dying for an epidural, no matter how big the needle. It took the guy 3 tries to get it right.. for a moment it was like heaven, but then my son’s head (it was in the 95th percentile) literally broke my back and that was hell! The lower back got so seriously messed up (vertebrae got pushed and twisted out of alignment) that I was in painful hell for the next 7 months- physical therapy etc. Good advice: if your baby’s head is so big, have a c-section, “natural birth” be damned! They got my son out with a vacuum – with 18 stiches and a broken back as a bonus :(

    • Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

      I would NEVER tell someone to get a csection due to baby size (big head or not) I had to have one with my second child and the pain/recovery/trauma to my body was a million times worse, and she was smaller and her head was tiny. My 1st was a 26.5 hour marathon labor and her head was the was in the 95 percentile as well and she came out in less than 20 minutes of pushing and I only needed one cosmetic stitch. Every body is different, but major surgery should not be a go to choice. JMHO.

  80. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Hi Asli!

    Whoo! Just looking at Jess, and reading the ‘totally true stories of what it’s like to produce a baby’, makes me soooooo glad I chose not to have kids. Weirdly, kids like me, but I am way too superficial to give birth and raise a young’n. Plus, I love being free to be with only my husband all these years.

    Besides, I’ve been a good assistant to my bonus son’s Mom and to his Dad, my husband. Son primarily has lived with Mom, with me babysitting through the years as needed: he is 18 now, college bound, and the three of us are all proud as punch!

    Go Jessica, may you be the great Mom and raise a happy, well adjusted child!

    • constance says:

      Good for you! While I am a mother of 3 monsters, I enjoy knowing there are stable people who understand themselves, put effort into their own life planning, and enjoy their happiness. I don’t think anyone is less for not having children. I can’t wait for some empty nest time with my husband. We’ve had children of all ages since we started dating.

  81. daya says:

    i think she looks disgusting….

  82. FinallyFr33 says:

    WHERE…CAN…I…GET…THE…BAG! I love it!!

  83. MissVJJ says:

    Looking at these pics remind me of one of the reasons why I had a breast reduction at 24. 4’11″ with 34F’s- didn’t have a very comfortable pregnancy future ahead of me (when I decide to have my first child). NO WAY. Off with the boobs.

  84. skuddles says:

    Jessica’s boobs are starting to frighten me :O

  85. Nan209 says:

    I’m guessing this baby is going in the 9+ lbs area at birth. I was huge when I was pregnant…not this huge…and had a 8 lbs 10 oz baby.

  86. Chrissy says:

    Poor gal. I’ve been there. No matter how rich she is, no amount of money is going to make her comfortable for the next month. I’m sure she’s kind of miserable right now. This is why so many people think the Beyonce pregnancy was fake: because she wasn’t a tiny gal before she was “pregnant” either. She should have looked at least somewhat similar to Jessica here. I wish Jessica nothing but the best with her new baby. If she doesn’t have a c-section she may have a hard time because the baby looks big.

  87. busreisen says:

    Hi there, just turned into aware of your weblog via Google, and found that it is really informative. I’m going to be careful for brussels. I’ll appreciate in case you proceed this in future. Many other folks can be benefited from your writing. Cheers!
