How do you feel about your current pregnant body's overall appearance?
For the most part...pretty good! I haven't gained alot of weight & currently have NO stretch marks :yahoo::yahoo: I don't like having any pictures taken of me b/c I do feel like my face is fatter & I hate that! Only about a month left so I can hang with that
I'm okay, not in love with myself but don't hate looking at myself either. Lots of stretch marks and wish baby wasn't so low. I've gained quite a bit so kind of looking forward to postpartum where I can start going down again.
I hate it.
I look cute this time. I am all belly and so far I have only put on 32lbs. From the back you can't tell I am prego until I turn around and I am all up and down belly. I did gain some wight in my legs and boobs but I only know that because of how my cloth fit.
I also have been trying to do things to make myself feel good, I got my hair cut yesterday. Now it is a pixi cut and so SHORT!!!
I think I look fine but I feel like crud by the end of most days and it is hard to roll over, go up stars or get off the sofa. Lifting the laundry baskets or to fill/empty the dishwasher is the worst. I spend most of my day at the computer because then I can put my feet up on another chair next to me.
Ugh is all i can say.....:rolleyes:
Oh wait, you're serious.. haha
No, this time I'm doing "okay" I was 20 pounds lighter to start so that HELPS! I've gained weight in places other than my belly but not nearly as bad as last time.. SO that's good. So far I'm up 30 pounds, but at this rate I don't have much longer left. With DS I think I gained right under 30 pounds but again, I was already 20 pounds lighter this time around. I'm only 10 pounds heavier now than I was when I started my pregnancy with DS. After he was born I had no problem getting down BELOW what I was with DS by nearly 10 pounds. So I'm trying to just remind myself that this weight WILL come off and I need to not "freak" (especially considering this is a fair amount of water weight gain..) anyway, so now that I'm totally off track.. haha.. back to your daily activities.
Absolutely, horrible! My bump is so low
I feel really good about my body. Just wish I was more comfortable in it. I have had trouble gaining weight while on bed rest so total I've only gained about 15 lbs. It is all belly and all out front.
Bleh.... I do NOT feel cute... My bump had been super low (Robyn--- yours always reminded me of mine).... It finally moved up a bit at like 28 weeks.. and then fell low again a little after 32.... I have a few stretch marks on my hips I am not thrilled about. They aren't bad... but I didn't want any. My boobies touch my below now too.... like.. the bottom of them touch my upper stomach...yuck... I like them sticking straight out. My arms are not cute anymore either.. definitely gained weight in them and my hair just hasn't been itself since getting pregnant.
I'm pretty happy with how my body looks preggo. In fact I like that I get bigger boobs as i'm normally pretty small hahaha!
I actually really like my pregnant body, chubby butt & dimply thighs included I've had some body image issues a lot of my life, but when I'm preggo I am really good at letting it all go and just enjoying what my body is capable of doing. I am going to enjoy being back to "normal" again though
I loved my preggo body last time, but this time I'm just liking it ok. I feel really big a lot of the time and a little uncomfortable. However, I'm amazed at what the body is capable of doing.
I think it's alright. I don't like how I feel, big and heavy and achy. But I don't hate how I look. I like not having to worry about having a muffin top or anything! I think I like it more in the 2nd tri though, when my bump is still small enough to be comfortable. Now I think I am starting to swell a bit, and I don't like my face looking fat!!
I too noticed the FAT face thing just this week and I am not a fan.
I love it...just wish SO felt the same way! He does think it's cute, but not sexy *blush*. Anyway, I haven't gotten any new stretch marks yet (I was way bigger with DD) & I'm PRAYING I don't get any at all. My belly looks horrible from last time...that's the only thing I'd change, really. But I've got a basketball belly, gorgeous boobs & I still have a waistline. I'm not swollen all that badly & my ankles look fine. I cannot complain one bit!
clothed, i like my body - well, belly..lol. I did get some stretch marks on my gut area and i hate them, but whatever...... i have gained some weight, which i keep telling myself can come off..... i think it also depends on what i'm wearing, if i'm wearing a more flowy shirt i feel like a HUGE house especially from the side....YUCK! If it's more tappered and rouched sides, then i feel not so huge. I do like not really having to worry about how i look, since well, i'm pregnant!! I do not like though that my feet have started to swell with the heat....it's more uncomfortable and i hate the feeling!!!!!! I'm not looking forward to my face getting fat...i'm worried if i smile my eyes will disapear...lol.
I love it! In fact, at our birth class last week, the teacher paid me what I feel like is the ultimate compliment-- she said she'd never seen such a "well-defined, perfectly packaged little bump"! I was floating on air all the way home! She's had over 750 couples in her birth classes, so she's seen a lot of bumps!
I've only gained weight in my bump, no growth in leg, butt, face, etc. But I still feel like I don't have the best clothes to suit my shape and that my bump is way cuter uncovered than clothed.
