Have you noticed that whenever there's a pregnant woman on TV or the movies, they never seem to get bigger than about 5 months, and then they waddle around like they're huge. Maybe that's why people are looking at us thinking we're huge, because Hollywood has decided that it's only OK to have a cute tiny round bump. I was so enormous last time!! I have a short torso (well, short everything) and there's just nowhere for the baby to go but out. Just thinking.

I think this is a very valid possibility! I feel like there is such a standard from TV and magazines for so many things that are just not realistic because well they are not realistic!! I'd like to see one magazine that wasn't photoshopped!

Like this for example!! It's not quite related but i like the example...Before and after shots for a Candies advertisement!

You know I gave that a thought but your right! And why is it that they never gain weight anywhere else? No matter what they all have a tiny cute little belly.

Yeah well that's the media i guess, they can't have anything that's slightly below standard...which makes the majority of us look and feel inferior.

Hollywood makes everything smaller. It's not right. Because us REAL women get looked down on when we are beautiful...and real.

I hate when they photoshop magazine photos. I feel like I'm always hearing about some big controversy about photoshopping to make the already skinny models impossibly thin, but nothing ever changes.
