Q:

Hi! I am seventh month pregnant. I am happy and excited about my pregnancy but feel very ugly when I see my pregnant body in the mirror especially while changing clothes. I feel out of shape looking at my big breasts and belly and feel very ugly. Is it normal to feel like this for pregnant ladies. I know it doesn't mean that I am not going to be a good mother because I am so happy and excited and waiting for my little one to come. I want to feel good about myself, about my body, I want to love my pregnant body. How to feel good and love myself in everyway?

the fact that ur carrying a living soul inside of you and goin to give life to someone is reason good enough for you to feel proud of urslf and ur body. only we women have the privilege to experience something so purely blissful. ur indeed goin to be a lovely mother and having anxieties about ur body is normal. everytime u see urslf in the mirror remind yourself that ur indeed blessed to go through this magical experience and when you will have ur little one in ur arms all of this will b absolutely worth it.

hi amita...I understand what you are feeling.but it is very normal for the changes to happen with your body because your body is preparing for your little ones arrival and that is the nature the god has created. instead of feeling low I would say think this way.... the bigger ur tummy is growing the bigger is your baby ,ur nartureing the little life inside u infact be happy and privileged. when I was pregnant I would love the attention I got from hubby,family ND friends. so pls start enjoy ur pregnancy ND try to connect with ur child it really works and magical.I guess u can start yoga or some mom to be classes to pep u up and see the women same as u and feel nice.I hope my message helped u a bit. all the best to you.

it is very normal to feel so but do under stand that tgese changes are in favour of your child's needs in the coming time. once your child grows slightly older and things are back in floe, you can always work on your body and get back in shape, including shaping of belly and timing down the bust. stop worrying about being in shape right now as your baby is more important than how we end up looking right now

hey Amita.. don't worry and start enjoying these changes. post delivery you can again get back to what you were.
feel your baby inside when u r changing.. touch your tummy and see you will get to hear a voice..Mom you are so beautiful.
so enjoy these moments..do you know that people do photoshoots of pregnancy..as these r lifetime memories and only a mother can experience it.
