Recently, I read an article in a secular journal that was titled, "Pregorexia." Apparently, this is becoming a huge problem amongst pregnant women in our culture, since we have so many images of picture-perfect pregnant celebrities. Women who have been diagnosed with "pregorexia" are starving themselves or exercising too hard and are depriving their babies of important nutrients that they need to develop well. Thus, there has been a rising number of babies with birth defects, mental retardation, and other serious health issues. So sad!
I have to admit... I am used to being skinny and being pregnant definitely makes me feel the opposite. However! Pregorexia is out for me... I would rather look pregnant and have a healthy, happy little girl. Ladies, we need to wake up... worshiping beauty cannot satisfy. Only Jesus can. Let's not sacrifice our children on the altars of vanity and pride.
