Body image struggles??

Hi mummies, I’m at that stage where my body is starting to widen but my bump is too small so it just makes me look super bloated and big, and everything I wear just doesn’t look right. I’m finding it hard to accept this change not because I don’t like being pregnant (it’s a dream!!!) but I’m just not used to it because my favourite thing to wear was always high waisted everything haha. Anyone has tips on handling / overcoming this?

The only way you can overcome this is to accept that there is nothing you can do and it’s all for your baby. 😵‍💫 Being pregnant for the first time, watching myself put on 17KG and growing stretchmarks was a little too overwhelming for me to accept… But then again, other than accepting that I can only do something about it after I pop… what can I do 😂 I gave up wearing nice clothings and went for comfy oversized tshirts & maternity shorts 🙈

I just wear baggy dresses now and for bottoms maternity shorts because it's more comfy for the bump. If wearing t-shirt, I just steal my hubs one because I can't fit into mine at all.


I just wear something that hides parts I dislike. After giving birth it’s better
