I know there are people out there who loved being pregnant and those that hated it. But if I could be about 6 months pregnant for the rest of my life – I really would. Here’s why:
5 months postpartum and with 2 c-sections under my belt, I feel like I’m wearing a coat made from soft, semi-sagging body parts. And even though people tell me I look fine; I definitely don’t feel anywhere close to fine. Going from having total body confidence in pregnancy to almost zero body confidence is pretty tough.
In pregnancy you have a massive belly, growing thighs and bum. And it’s a beautiful thing because you are growing another human being. After birth these things aren’t welcome anymore and a whole load of pressure (mostly from yourself) is chucked on top of you to do something about it. It sucks. I honestly feel that I looked my absolute best when I was pregnant.
Mine were most recently referred to as “Fun Bags”….
BAGS!! I don’t know if this is supposed to be funny, a compliment or a straight up DISS. Bags hang. Most bags need handles and they are usually empty until you fill ‘em up. All mine seem to be filled with at the moment is “fun”. What happens when the milk finally dries up completely? These bags won’t even sell for 5p.
And I don’t mean the baby bump! In pregnancy I had flawless, glowing skin. In that 9 months I forgot how dreadful my skin can get. Especially at that time of the month, I look like I’m 15 again! Not to mention that spots are painful man. Do I have time to be putting on concealer? Do I even own concealer? CAN NOT DEAL.
All the annoying symptoms aside; I genuinely really loved feeling and knowing that I had a little baby inside of me. I was in my own little bubble, feeling magical things that no one else could feel and loving someone who I hadn’t seen or met yet. It was wonderful, mysterious and of course it is nice to get the baby at the end of it. But I wouldn’t mind having the feeling of pregnancy forever.
Do you wish you could be pregnant all the time?
