What does being pretty really mean? Is it defined by race, color, ethnicity, body type, clothes, hair, or shoes? What truly qualifies someone as gorgeous? While today many people might argue that the body makes the person, this is not the case. Some people’s main focus, especially women, is on fitness and looking as sexy as possible to the other gender. They want to have the tightest abs, the nicest butt, and the best hair in town. So what’s a girl to do when she finds herself pregnant and all of those body parts start changing and morphing into something much less than the tight little figure she had before? Good news: the body does not define beauty. In fact, there are many other ways for women to feel and look gorgeous without the sleek six-pack.
One thing that men and women will almost always agree on is that confidence is one of the sexiest things a person can possess. Before a nice chest and a great set of biceps, a person will notice how another individual carries him or her self. When someone walks into a room, their “aura,” so to speak, enters with them. If they are positive, energetic, and spunky, others will just naturally gravitate towards them, as opposed to someone who is withdrawn and self-conscious. Pregnant women, though they may not always feel radiant and peppy, should work hard to promote an air of confidence and beauty. With that, others will begin to see that beauty as well.
Enjoy the Journey
Something that many women forget to do when they are pregnant is to enjoy their journey. It is not every day a lady gets to live with another life growing inside her. This is a miracle and something that should be celebrated and enjoyed while she has the chance. Women often get caught up in all the negatives of pregnancy—weight gain, acne breakouts, lethargy, and other depressing symptoms. However, what they forget to look at are all the positive things about being a mommy. They ignore all the little kicks and flutters of their baby to focus on their newest stretch mark or blemish. This is no way to go through nine months of life. Women who enjoy their time being pregnant are more apt to feel pretty and happy than those who sit back and “suffer through it.”
Another very important part to feeling and looking great when pregnant is to eat well and stay healthy. Lots of ladies take pregnancy as an excuse to sit around and get fat for nine months. They think they can east as much junk as they want because they are going to gain weight anyway, so what’s the difference. However, if anything, women should focus on being healthy more now than ever before. They are supporting a little life inside of them, and that growing baby needs as much nutrients and nourishment as possible. Plus, when people eat well and exercise regularly, they are just naturally going to feel better about themselves.
Dress the Body Right
Sometimes it can be hard for a pregnant woman to find something she feels confident and sexy wearing. Fortunately, there are so many options for maternity clothes nowadays that these ladies need not worry. There are all sorts of cute jeans, fun tops, and even pretty maternity dresses that can be found at any regular clothing store. Dressing the pregnant body appropriately and tastefully can make a pregnant woman look just as good, if not even better, than that lady with the six-pack and great butt. Sometimes, beauty isn’t all about the body, but rather how a woman presents herself, dresses, and takes care of herself.
