Imogen Thomas On Pregnancy Pounds: “I’ve Lost Control Of My Body”

Mum-to-be Imogen Thomas, 29, seems to be struggling with pregnancy weight gain and in a recent interview with Now magazine, is quick to refute the theory that most expecting women embrace their maternity curves.

“I know it’s natural and it’s just my body preparing for childbirth, but I hate how big I’m getting!” the Welsh glamor model and former Big Brother contestant reveals. “I’ve lost control of my body.”

“I’m putting on weight on my sides and I’ve got bingo wings,” she adds. “It’s depressing. And my hips have got a lot wider. I tried my jeans on the other day and I couldn’t even get them half way up my leg!”

Imogen continues to admit that the arrival of stretchmarks and cellulite have induced a level of panic.

“I’m really scared about my stretchmarks,” she says. “And I’ve got cellulite!”

The former beauty queen – who is currently 5 months pregnant with her first child – says that eating for two has definitely taken on a whole new meaning.

“I’ve always been a control freak about my body, but now I’ve definitely lost control,” she says. “I’m eating crisps every single day and I’ve got a whole cupboard full of chocolate, biscuits and crisps. My boyfriend [Adam] saw it and said he was disgusted!”

Before Imogen discovered she was expecting, she always believed that her favorite part of being pregnant would be her growing baby belly.

“I always said if I got pregnant I’d love a big belly…[but] I’ve got a tilted womb so it pushes the baby out so I look bigger,” she claims.

With approximately another 4 months to go before her due date arrives, it’s no surprise that the model has already derived a post-pregnancy plan of action.

“I want my size 10 body back within four weeks,” she reveals, “As soon as the baby’s born, I’ll be on a diet and working out like mad every single day as much as I can… I want to be a yummy mummy.”

Despite circulating rumors that she hates her baby belly, Imogen took to Twitter  to shut down the speculation:

  1. Poor thing. I know, it sucks to get big and not be able to do anything about it. Some people embrace it and some people just dont – and that’s ok. Everyone is different. People don’t need to be so hard on her. It’s her first time – maybe she will relax about it a little after the baby comes and she realizes it all in more of a sentimental way. I give her props for saying whats on her mind though instead of the typical sugar coated things some people say. I wish her luck. Don’t worry though Imogen, it’s just temporary and it will all work itself out in the end. You will be a yummy mummy soon enough, just don’t be too hard on yourself!

  2. Give me a break!! Just wait until the baby arrives, youll be surprised at how much you cant control….I would suggest that she stop obsessing about herself & realize that the body needs extra weight for the BABY”S health- its not all about her!!

  3. If she hated her weight gain so much she wouldn’t be posing in her underwear in a magazine.

    This girl needs to be focusing on the upcoming baby she’s going to have, not the weight she wants to lose.

  4. I have a question for the woman that have been pregnant before. She states that she’s gaining weight in other areas besides her belly. Did you also have this problem? Did you watch what you eat?

    In my mind, I guess I just don’t understand why she’s complaining. She even mentions that she’s eating unhealthy junk foods. Gaining weight is going to happen if that’s how you eat. If you moderate what you eat, in theory, wouldn’t you only gain weight in the stomach where the baby is growing?
