Anna Faris: “When I was pregnant, I gained 70 lbs!”

anna-faris - Anna Faris: "When I was pregnant, I gained 70 lbs!"

On gaining 70 lbs of pregnancy weight:

“When I was pregnant, I gained 70 lbs! I wish it was all in my belly, but it was on my arms, my thighs, my ass. I remember at the time thinking, This is incredible. I’d never enjoyed food more and I didn’t care. My vanity was completely tidal-waved by the need to just nourish this thing. Nothing was going to stop me! Finally, my doctor was like, ‘Okay, you’re, uh, gaining at a pretty rapid pace.’ Well, yeah! For the first time in a long time, I had absolutely zero concern about my weight. It felt really good.”

  1. Admittedly I’ve never been pregnant. However, I do know that if you’re a healthy weight, you need no extra calories in your first trimester, 340 extra calories in the second, and 450 extra calories in the third trimester. With numbers like those, gaining 70 pounds is no laughing matter. It’s also NOT about “nourishing this thing”; it’s more about taking advantage of a perceived freedom to eat and gain at will. That perception could actually be detrimental to the baby e.g. gestational diabetes. It seems a healthy pregnancy should involve a little of watching one’s weight and caloric intake.

    • That’s true, but for someone who’s probably been conscious of what they eat for years and years, her body could very well have been ravenous, and her mind ravenous too, for the extra calories. She obviously didn’t hold on to the weight afterwards though!

      • exactly. from the way she worded this, it sounds like she was depriving herself before becoming pregnant, and there are no cravings like those you get after a long period of restriction when you finally let yourself eat ‘whatever’ again… there isn’t even a physiological reason for most of those cravings, its more psychological imo.

    • This is true and its a medical fact. Slight digression – my mom gained cca 8-9 kgs (cca 17 lbs) with me and my sis and i hope to be the same.

    • I just had a baby 2 months ago. I dont believe she gained 70 lbs – her baby was 9 weeks premature with her birth – she lost the last 2 months of the 3rd trimester.

      A person with a normal BMI is supposed to gain between 25-35 lbs; if you weigh less, 30-40 lbs. Gaining 70 lbs is actually outrageous, which is why i doubt it, especially seeing her pregnancy pictures.

      My ObGyn never failed to remind me that I only needed 300 extra calories during my 2nd and 3rd tri, and would get after me if I was gaining too quickly as it put me at risk for gestational diabetes, especially with my family background.
