kate middleton kim kardashian glamorous pregnancies Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian setting the bar too high for pregnant women?The Daily Star in the U.K. is reporting that baby products company Philips Avent recently polled 1000 women and found that 71 percent feel that glamorous moms-to-be like Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Kim Kardashian are setting the bar too high for normal moms by looking so chic during their pregnancies.

The poll also showed that more moms-to-be were worried about stretch marks and changes to their bodies than they were about the cost of raising their child, according to the Daily Mail.

However, over half the women polled are proud of their baby bumps, revealing that they have posted pics of said bumps on social media sites like Facebook.

And despite Kate Middleton’s fashionista ways making pregnant women want to look more glamorous, the Duchess is the celebrity that the polled women follow most closely. Over half of the women said they considering a “royal name,” like Henry or Elizabeth, and nearly 33 percent say they will be influenced by Prince William and Kate’s baby name.

What do you think, readers? Do these fashionable pregnancies make it harder for us normal women? Don’t even get us started on how quickly most famous women get back into shape after the baby arrives. It’s almost in-human.
