Snooki: I am not a lunatic hippo


Snooki admits she “felt like a hippo” during her first pregnancy.

The 26-year-old former Jersey Shore star is currently carrying her second child with fiancé Jionni LaValle.

And Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, took to her blog to express how she is faring with a baby in her belly this time round.

“My first pregnancy I felt like a hippo the 2nd month because I was eating everything I wanted and didn’t lift a finger to attempt any sort of exercise,” she explained.

The Snooki and JWoww star is elated she chose to be active while pregnant, as all of the symptoms she suffered while carrying her now 19-month-old son Lorenzo have been dramatically reduced.

“The tiredness and crankiness subsides and I can actually function with a smile again. Unlike my first pregnancy, I am feeling awesome,” she shared.

“I think it has a lot to do with sticking to my daily routines, which is not being lazy, eating healthy and still working out.

“I’m so excited because I still have my muscles, I still feel strong and I don’t feel like a hippo yet.”

Snooki is preparing to release a series of workout videos for pregnant women.

She encourages all future mothers to take care of their bodies while they are expecting.

“I definitely recommend my mamas to try to be active during their pregnancy, because being both inactive and active during pregnancy, I vote for this one,” Snooki said, noting her husband-to-be has been a pillar of support throughout.

“So excited to have my energy back and give Jionni a break. I have been such a raging lunatic to him, he deserves another trophy for my mood swings. But babe, don’t worry, I feel great now & I won’t be such a pain in the ass, diva pregnant woman.”
