I've made it no secret that I've struggled with body confidence - I've actually written a whole blog post about it here. I was speaking to one on my friends about body confidence the other week, and that I never in a million years would have guessed that I would feel more comfortable in my pregnant body than I have in my ‘normal body’ in years! I thought it would feel uncomfortable (and I know I still have a long way to go yet!) and almost like an 'out of body' experience, but actually I feel more confident pregnant than I normally do. You can stick your belly out for the world to see and it’s seen as cute/amazing/wonderful rather than something to change…
I also have a new found respect for my own body - I actually cried after my first scan because I was so proud of my body for being able to grow a human! I’m seeing my body in a whole new way and it’s not something I ever expected to happen, but I’m loving it and hope this feeling stays!
If you’re pregnant or have been pregnant, I’d love to know your thoughts on this! Did your body image change during or after your pregnancy? Was this in a positive or negative way?
