Getting pregnant is such an exciting time in your life. There are a lot of worries that go through your head as a soon to be mom. Probably one of the biggest concerns is how you are going to look during and after having your baby. I have women write in to me all the time that are stressed out about their after baby body. But, you can look and feel sexy while you’re pregnant
It doesn’t take long into pregnancy to start feeling like a beached whale. If you are wondering, “How can I look sexy while I’m pregnant?”, try these ideas.
1. Buy Maternity Clothes to Wear
I won’t lie, I was one of those women that struggled with the thought of wearing maternity shirts and pants. In my mind, I wanted to be that person that had the cute little baby bump, but sport my normal clothes. While there are some women that don’t need maternity clothes until the last month, it’s not the norm, and it definitely wasn’t me!
To feel and look sexy while you are pregnant, you need clothes that are designed to rock your mom body. Wearing regular clothes when you have a large pregnant belly, looks more like you gained weight then you are having a baby.
I’m actually a little pissed off when I see maternity clothes now. They are even cuter and trendier then when I was pregnant. Gone are the days of wearing tents. You can actually look amazing in maternity clothes.
2. Listen to Your Husband When He Says You’re Sexy
It is part of human nature for the father of your child to find you even more sexy while you are pregnant. He is not telling you that he thinks you are hot because he doesn’t want to feel the wrath of a pregnant lady. He truly means what he is saying.
When you believe you look good, you will feel better about yourself. Instead of hiding your belly from your partner, wear lingerie that accentuates your pregnant body. As long as you feel sexy, you will think you look sexy in the clothes you are wearing.
3. You’re Sexy, Act Like it!
Sex appeal is more than what you wear. Your attitude has a lot to do with the way people see you. When you act like the sexy woman that you are, you will look more attractive to your partner.
When you are pregnant, look at sexual encounters as a way to show your man how sexy you are. Don’t shy away from those intimate times because of your increased size. I’ll say it again, he thinks you’re hot because you are pregnant.
4. Take Care of Yourself
Let’s face it, when you are pregnant, you spend a lot of the time feeling sick in the beginning. If you are lucky enough to get over the morning sickness, other ailments bother you. It is hard to think you look sexy when your body feels run down.
Make sure you are taking care of yourself physically. It’s ok to take a nap even if there are a million things to do. Likely, you aren’t sleeping well as it is. Get the rest you need. And make sure you are eating healthy foods so you can sustain your pregnancy.
You can feel good about yourself and your body when you are having a baby. I hope these things help you regain your confidence during this time.
