  • Yeah, i have heard of it. It's the most selfish messed up thing any mother can do. If you're so worried about being thin, that you cannot even eat enough for your growing baby....then they should not have kids. why get pregnant just to harm the health of your baby? From what i understand, it comes from celebrities wanting to stay thin during pregnancy, so that they can lose their baby weight right away. Sickening. Where is her partner in all of this? Doesn't he have a say in any of this? It's his baby too! There isn't much you can do other than encourage her go to therapy or see a nutritionist to tell her how much of a selfish bitch she is. You should also be the good friend that constantly reminds her of how selfish her behavior is & how it can mess up your baby. It can have life long effects on her child.

  • Why have they not hosptialized her yet? She obviously is not mentally or physically well. Needs to enter inpatient treatment ASAP
