When you're in the spotlight as often as Jennifer Aniston, everything from your hair color to your fitness level comes into question. Hollywood gossip lovers enjoy a good story, and many are drawn from the sheer observation of the celebrities they watch daily. Now, Aniston is fending off rumors that she's enduring first trimester symptoms and looking forward to a new baby with fiance Justin Theroux.
E! News reported thatrumors begin swirlingthat Aniston was pregnant when she was spotted out and about with what looked like a baby bump. However, the actress quickly shot down the assumption that she was expecting and attributed her physique to a few extra pounds that she's gained over the past couple of months.
"Why not just wait until we actually get to have the fun of announcing something?" Aniston asked the news source. "Who wants to play the guessing game, whether it be [a] family wedding, this, that, the other thing?"
So far, it seems that Aniston is busy planning her wedding - not learning how to become a new mom. She also addressed rumors that her and Theroux have called off their long-awaited marriage while speaking on "The Talk."
"[Tabloids] like to create the stories, because it's not interesting, the story of we're really happy and in love and feel like we're married and eventually we're going to get married when we find the time," she said on the daytime talk show. "I don't think there's a rush."
Am I expecting?
While Aniston might not be preparing for a baby any time soon, you may be on the opposite end of the spectrum - perhaps you're expecting a little bundle of joy! But how do you know if you've begun your pregnancy calendar?
Over-the-counter pregnancy tests can detect the presence of a hormone in your system that indicates whether or not you've conceived, and your doctor can provide further confirmation if you've been trying to get pregnant. Some first trimester symptoms to look out for include nausea, fatigue and vomiting - common signs of morning sickness. As you inch closer to your due date, you'll gradually begin to see a baby bump develop. Stay in close contact with your doctor as you enjoy the thrill of the upcoming nine months!
