Is Michelle Obama pregnant?

Michelle Obama Pregnant?This morning I was reviewing photos of Michelle Obama while on her trip to Russia, and something seemed amiss.

The usually indefatigable, radiant First Lady looked exhausted. Even nauseous. And, then there's the possible bump. Maybe she just has a bad case of flu, but apparently others noticed it and the rumor that she might be pregnant has been flying around DC, too. This photo was taken as she was leaving for Russia.

If true, imagine what a nationwide journey and 24/7 non-stop media blitz for seven months that will be.

As Bonnie Fuller writes in the Huff Post, "There's almost nothing that this beleaguered country could use more now than an adorable Obama baby. In fact, we need it so badly, that if Michelle isn't already knocked up with #3, she and Barack should start trying immediately." Follow Me on Twitter | Find Me on Facebook

If MB is not PG and is just porked out a bit from her new lavish lifestyle, you will be in a world of trouble from the obama news police.

… i know the date was a while ago.. which is why i believe if she is pregnant she probably wasnt very pregnant that night, meaning she wouldnt be all that far along now.

h – Oh, I knew that’s what you meant. I was getting into speculation territory that I prefer to leave now. For her sake, I hope she’s just put on a little weight. I think the media circus for her would be overwhelming.

why would a forty-five year old woman with two kids be pregnant….the campaign trail kept her lean, now all the partying is catching up with her… OMG…maybe she is gaining weight!!!

She just needs to lose those belts, or reposition them!

Remember when Tony Blair’s wife got pregnant while he was in office? She was 45.

After all of the horrible comments about Sarah Palin getting pregnant in her 40′s it is something to be wished for now? Why the double standard?

Could abortion a possibility? It is legalized now isn’t it?

I agree. She looks pregnant.
If she’s not she needs to get busy in the White House gym. Or–as one comment stated,
not wear belts that cut her in half.
Her fashion sense is a little challenged anyway. She has a “thick” frame,e.g. not curvy, no waist. When you are shaped like she is (a hard body) you have to dress against it to look feminine.She’s so much better in a body-skimming sheath. No belts!! And since she’s been spending up to $1500. each on them, it’ll save Barack some cash!

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Obamas had a baby to improve Barry’s declining approval numbers

I hope the baby doesn’t have a big head like her

Are you an ignoramus – I thought only dudes get to speculate on womens’ bodies. You’re a girl, so you don’t count. Make sure you write some more articles about how women appear – do us all a favor, eh?

Wow, I saw her in some white pants or skirt the other day that is more a hip hugger type and her stomach was showing. She did look pregnant. I did not vote for Obama, but if they want a baby it is not anyone’s place to judge them on this. I didn’t know that other’s thought she was pregnant…Jackie Kennedy really impressed the nation with her pregnancies…I hope she is pregnant myself. Better that than the stories about her shorts or garden….
