    @ Trudy
    Please consider the many diseases that cause abdominal bloating
    or require medications that cause weight gain before you judge that a person is obese due to over eating.

    Oveweight is defined as more than 20% over ideal weight. Morbidly obese is
    defined as 100 lbs or more overwieght. This mother is NOT obese. She
    is carrying typical body fat that is there after you give birth. It takes a long
    time for that fat to shrink down. Please – give this mother a break. I suspect
    you have never given birth, or you are so thin you are close to being anorexic.
    I was lucky to lose the weight I gained after giving birth. Most women lose
    most of the baby fat , either through breastfeeding or after the kid learns to run
    and they are running after the kid! Anyone can give birth early. I am just happy that mom and baby are doing well.

    Did you know that women need a certain amount of body fat in order to
    menstruate? Runners who lose alot of body fat cease menstruating because
    of the loss of fat. Your body needs fat to process fat-soluble vitamins such
    as Vitamin A. And, from what I understand, runners can stilll become pregnant though even if periods are skipped.

    I can understand that people have a hatred of fat, because excess fat causes
    problems. But we need to be realistic; our bodies need fat, in its proper
    proportions. The lady’s abdominal fat will shrink: trust me. It just takes time.
    And depending on her blood work, she may even be healthier than you.

    Why was Trudy’s comment removed?

    1. M B says:

      Because it was offensive and derided/demeaned the person in the article.

  5. LuAnn says:


    One more thing…..

    What you perceive as fat, may be just a uterus that has not shrunk yet.

    What a beautiful baby! Congratulations!

    As a mom who was in labor for 22 hours before an emergency C-section, all I can say is WOW!!!!!!. Congratulations to mom and baby Jaden!!!! At least you were in a place where people knew what to do.

  8. Guessing it wasn't her first child says:


    Pregnant women cannot stay at home the last couple months of pregnancy. Most women have to work up to the day they give birth because most are only allowed a certain (maybe 3 months, if lucky) off of work to have the baby. Most women would prefer to spend that time healing from delivery and spending time with their new baby. As I am currently pregnant and wishing for a quick delivery, I still go to work and try to get as much done as possible, so I can enjoy the time after birth.

    Do you thing she named the child Cash? 😉

  10. Jess says:

    It’s encouraged for women to stay active during pregnancy so that they are in good shape to give birth. If women sat on their behinds during the whole 9 months then they could have complications or a very long labor. My guess is that you don’t have children or know many pregnant women. You should know all the facts before you comment on something like that.
