Today Show Segment About Skinny Pregnant Women

Is Pregnorexia Just an Obnoxious, Upper-Class, "White-Girl" Issue?

Could the latest pregnancy trend really be Pregnorexia, or is it a just a problem that wealthy, self-obsessed moms bring on themselves?

This morning's Today show highlighted the skinny-while-pregnant trend focusing on the rash of celebrity moms-to-be who continue to keep their svelte figures while carrying a baby. The doctors and psychoanalysts participating in the segment highlighted the need to gain weight within the recommended guidelines for both the mother and baby's sake, but the show's resident medical expert frankly stated her disgust with the whole issue, saying:

Pregnancy should be 9 months of root beer floats and bliss . . . This is an Upper East Side, white girl, obnoxious problem. . . . And for the women who can't get pregnant right now, they're not liking this segment. Let's get real!

Watch an excerpt from the segment for yourself and tell me, do you agree with Dr. Nancy's assessment of the issue?
