I think we need to look at each part of the pregnancy as beautiful. From the start of the weight gain to hen the belly being as big as a house. Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman's life and as women we need to embrace this special beauty. We are carrying a new life and that in itself is beautiful.
Another part of pregnancy that people feel is not pretty are stretch marks. Last pregnancy I lucky not to have any. Everyone has their ideas on ways to stop them from happening and from what I understand there is not much we can do to stop them as much of it is genetics. I say that is it can's hurt to do things like use lotion, keep hydrated or use things like olive oil to keep the body happy.
I think that this quote sums up how we need to look at the beauty of pregnancy and our own idea of beauty. We are all beautiful and it is what we feel is beautiful that matters. We need to embrace the beauty that is our pregnancy let the opinions of others wash away if they bring us down instead of build us up.
