uncomfortable in your own skin? I'm having a really hard time with myself today. I feel uncomfy in my own body let alone the clothes that I put over it. My swimsuit and shorts from last year don't fit me because I had my baby in April and my weight has been bouncing up and down since. We have friends coming over and, even though I feel comfortable with them, I'm struggling with myself. Just having a bad Me Day
I've been having those days, but I'm still pregnant. I just cover up on those days or hide where no one can see me. I hate the feeling though, always feeds my insecurities. A stretchy dress/cover up always work. If its colorful, you'll feel better when you look in the mirror! Want to read a funny? 3 weeks ago I went to the beach. Told myself I wasn't going to take my cover up off. It was too hot for it. Nobody said anything but I caught my belly in the mirror. Something you'd see in a haunted house. Not really, but thats what it looks like to me. My belly will not be bared to the public eye again. Wish I could have seen the bottom of it before then..
I hope you feel better soon! I bet you look absolutely gorgeous today too!
Kennedi's Momma, I had a similar experience. We don't own a full length mirror, as useful as one might be I have a hard time looking at them. Well, one day, when I was about 7.5 months preggo, I was trying on nursing bras in a fitting room and I actually saw my full naked tummy. And I thought my first pregnancy left behind a lot of stretch marks!! The way you describe your belly as somethin out of a horror movie is exactly how I felt. And now after both my babies my stomach is wrecked! I'm really jealous of the Mommies that bounce back. I just have to get out of this funk and start working on it
And to think I accidently bared that to the public beach! I can't see the bottom so I had no idea they were that bad.
It helps when my SO says things like "We wouldn't have our daughter if you didn't have those." He rubs lotion on them and always kisses my belly, so it helps that he is still wanting to touch me and see me.
