Pregnancy Insecurities

Updated: Aug 4, 2020

Hi guys!

Clearly, I have been absent for quite some time! I have missed blogging and being active on instagram SO much! However, internally I have been struggling. I finally feel ready to open up about what has been going on with me. I am sure MANY other women have dealt with the same issues or are currently dealing with them!

Here we go.. Ever since I found out I was pregnant my self esteem has been so low! Of course, I am so happy to be carrying my little bundle of joy but the changes my body has gone through have been extremely hard for me.

Very early on in my pregnancy I noticed that my face had gotten a lot more round and actually quite a few people around me would comment on it (without knowing I was even pregnant yet!). I was embarrassed to go out, post on instagram or even see myself on FaceTime! I really let the natural changes my body was going through affect my entire being. My arms were bigger, my legs were more plump, even my feet got chubbier!! I got to the point where I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror without crying- I realize that this is insane and everyone gains weight in pregnancy, but for me this has been VERY hard and I wanted to be truthful about how I have been feeling.

I feel the need to open up and be honest because this IS normal for some women to feel so insecure but still be so happy to be carrying a baby. I want every single pregnant person to know that if you also feel this way that you are NOT alone.

A few days ago, I decided I needed to change my attitude so I promised myself that I would start doing my hair and makeup, which I did today! Let me tell you what a difference it has made for me, truly. I feel so much better and plan to continue to do my hair and makeup and get back into my blogging routine because I have missed this so much!

To all my preggo ladies out there- our bodies go through a lot of change and it can be hard to see yourself gain so much weight, but we are creating little miracles which makes it ALL worth it!
