Film, What to Expect When You're Expecting, Glamorizes Pregnancy

So, the movie posters for the film, What to Expect When You're Expecting were recently released. A couple of examples are below:

Here's what I'm getting from these posters:
-All pregnant women are beautiful, white, and in shape and look like there's a basketball under their shirts?!
-I think my biggest problem with these posters is that they make these women sound stupid. Isn't pregnancy about having a child not about how horny a woman is or how big her boobs are? So pregnant women are not capable of having thoughts due to "pregnancy brain"?
