The Word: Vanessa Lachey on pregnancy, Nick

Lachey is encouraging everyone to save energy by only using cold water in their washing machines for Earth Day.

Vanessa Lachey is a very dutiful pregnant woman, saying she’s “only gotten better” as she’s entered her second trimester.

Really? She doesn’t miss, say, Scotch?

“Honestly, when people have drinks around me, the smell makes me want to vomit. I haven’t even missed coffee too much. I feel like you are giving up these things for a great reason,” she told us about her pregnancy while promoting “Take a Load Off” day on behalf of P&G Future Friendly and Tide Coldwater, which is encouraging the public to only wash their clothing in cold water this Earth Day to save on energy costs. 

However, this very pregnant columnist called shenanigans on Mrs. Lachey, as, come on, there has to be one complaint. (Vomiting? Swollen ankles? Give us something here, Vanessa!) And only after a little badgering from yours truly did she fess up to one complaint.

 ”Fatigue hit me hard,” she finally admitted. “Sometimes I’ll hit the couch for two or three hours and feel like I have to apologize to Nick, like: ‘I’m sorry I’m so lazy!’”

Vanessa Lachey is a better pregnant lady than I. Two hours on the couch is my exercise for the day — but it only counts as exercise if I keep my eyes open the entire time.
