Pregnancy and body image

We see pregnant women all the time and we often think…. what a cute bump…. shes looks so cute pregnant…..

But what happens when its you? One thing you think you prepare for is the mind games that will happen with your changing body in the 9….really 10 months…. you’re pregnant.

I can say I thought I was ready, but man o man was I not.  I understand I’m not ‘fat’ I’m growing a baby.  it doesnt make me feel any less like a hippo on a daily basis lol. My big shirts are crop tops now – i’m out of breath getting out of bed – god forbid I have to pick something up off the floor.

The crazy part to me is that I still have over 3 months to go.  I am pretty sure I’m going to just start falling over because my belly just keeps coming straight out.  I am certainly thankful that I’m really all belly vs gaining weight everywhere out of control.

One of the more frustrating part that I have found is that extreme fatigue I feel and of course still getting sick.  I used to workout to feel better and of course build muscle and everyday I crash hard and skip a workout because I’m just not feeling good I feel even more like a blob.

End of day Luke is worth it, but man can the day to day play games with your head sometimes.
