Dr. Georgia Witkin: Hi I am Doctor Georgia Witkin. Kimberly Pauley: And I am Kimberly Pauley. Dr. Georgia Witkin: And I am Kimberly's mother. Kimberly Pauley: And I am the mother of two boys. Dr. Georgia Witkin: -- which makes me GG for Grandma Georgia. Kimberly Pauley: So welcome to GG and me. Dr. Georgia Witkin: We talk about everything. Kimberly Pauley: Well the reason I talk to my mother about everything is that she is a professor of psychiatry, professor of OB GYN. She has written 10 books on stress and she is a Fox News Contributor. Dr. Georgia Witkin: And Kimberly is a lawyer, a columnist, a college professor and pregnant. Kimberly Pauley: So we are going to talking about pregnancy, please join us. Dr. Georgia Witkin: Okay, I am sure this is your favorite topic of all body changes before and after pregnancy, but first say hello. Kimberly Pauley: My name is Kimberly Pauley and I have two sons and I am pregnant with my third son. Jenny Vynerib: Hi! I am Jenny Vynerib, this is Oliver. I have two daughters in addition to him. He is little cranky so I have to -- Susan Krauss: I am Susan Krauss; I have a three and a half year old son and a two week son. Dr. Georgia Witkin: Because you were putting body change the most when you are pregnant. Kimberly Pauley: My breasts. Susan Krauss: I think critically. Kimberly Pauley: Did obviously get so enormous that -- and before -- that it's annoying and difficult and yes that's the one I was saying -- very happy. Dr. Georgia Witkin: But the baby will be very happy. Jenny Vynerib: Yeah, I think obviously your stomach but the downside and that is that you know when the stomach starts to go the love handle stays kind of a residue Susan Krauss: I would say, probably like my rear area -- my rear and my bottom, the bottom half of my body. Its funny, I don't change that much up top, you don't have that issue that -- Kimberly Pauley: No I have that too -- Susan Krauss: Oh but that -- Kimberly Pauley: -- my seven year old told me about my butt is growing in the same proportion as my stomach. She said are you pregnant? Well if people get pregnant, do -- is that mean that their butt gets as big as their stomach? Jenny Vynerib: Till the time you carry in your tummy? Kimberly Pauley: No I told them he was not -- Dr. Georgia Witkin: How about husbands, I mean they making comments or you worried about, or do you say hey I'm carrying for both of us. You know they are going to have to deal. Susan Krauss: I actually interestingly enough --, my husband. When I actually -- no I think this is probably true for a lot. My husband likes me with the extra weight on me. Jenny Vynerib: Really? Susan Krauss: Yeah. I mean he thinks that I am -- he likes bigger women and thinks that I am scrawny. He has said you're too skinny, sometimes and likes when I have like more up top and more in the back. So with -- as far as him, it is okay, it's more me, it's more me. Jenny Vynerib: See, I knew I was mad when David watched into the bathroom one night and I was changing and he looked to me and he said, wow. Susan Krauss: Men are always like that. Jenny Vynerib: How you could measure my reactions like. Kimberly Pauley: I was actually telling my mother that I was -- when we are in bed. I think that was actually my last pregnancy, not this pregnancy, or may be even my first but I was backing up in bed towards him and he went beep, beep, beep. Susan Krauss: That's actually very funny. Kimberly Pauley: But I think it's funny because I know that he has no problem with that I had not concerned with him and I am more worried about myself and I know how I feel comfortable, what weight I feel comfortable and no concerned about him and he knows that if, you know he was ever going to actually say something that would hurt my feeling, but he would be the one ultimately to pay. Susan Krauss: Right. Kimberly Pauley: So, Yeah I think it is okay and funny as long as you know and you are comfortable with yourselves. Dr. Georgia Witkin: S
