Story of the Day: Jessica Simpson is Struggling With Second Pregnancy


Jessica Simpson’s second pregnancy hasn’t been as easy as her first. She says her first pregnancy was easy and she felt amazing throughout, but this time she feels tired and rundown, in constantly need of rest. She also feels nauseous and unwell a lot of the time but is just trying to get through it even though it has been a struggle:

“(The pregnancy has been the) complete opposite (to the first)… With Maxwell, I felt amazing… I could do everything, eat everything. Do whatever I wanted. I had a lot of energy. This time around… I’m… exhausted, eating (antacid tablets) Tums. That’s my snack of choice!”

Speaking on once again piling on pregnancy pounds this time around, Jessica says she has tried to do a better job at monitoring her food intake. She reveals that her cravings are at an all time low this time so it has been easier to control herself and hopes she won’t gain as much weight. She also doesn’t want to put on as much weight because she learned the first time around how hard it is to lose the weight again once the pregnancy is over:

“The first pregnancy I… let loose and I kind of ate everything that I wanted to eat and I just really enjoyed it. This time around I think because I was doing WeightWatchers and I felt super healthy, I’m not really craving as much and I know how hard it is (to take the weight off) so I’m trying to make healthier, wiser decisions.”
