Do you enjoy the way your pregnant body looks? Does your husband/SO?

pregnancy is the only time I really like my stomach, lol. I wear way more tight shirts pregnant than I ever would regularly. That said.. I still feel huge and puffy around the face and really not that attractive.

My husband has been loving it tho.. he swears I'm super sexy, lol. It definitely helps that I'm up at least one cup size, lol

No way. I don't like looking pregnant. I enjoy having a flat stomach and feeling tiny. I've gained 40 pounds and I feel like it. I don't feel fat, I just feel large and like I take up more space. I hate maternity clothes and I miss my skinny jeans. Oh well, I know it'll come off like it did with Walter. My hubby likes it though. Not in a fetish sort of way, he's just a great guy and seems to find me attractive no matter what.

Yes for both. I have been taking very good care this time and I feel so good and I just love how pregnant belly's look. With DH he just loves the miracle of being pregnant and having a baby so he just loves it.

I am not comfortable with how I look this pregnancy. I'm a normally small person, and so far I haven't needed any maternity clothes (got a belly band in the beginning and thought I'd need it) But I just wear a tank top under my clothes and I'm fine. I know all the weight will come off pretty quick, but I am very self conscious now! No matter what I wear I get comments about being too small or whatever! Ugh.

I think I look most beautiful when I am pregnant. My hubby also thinks I look beautiful when I'm pregnant.

I LOVE my pregnant body! I am super pleased with how I look right now. However, I do remember feeling pretty yucky towards the end with Cadie. Winter maternity clothes are not the most flattering. I'm hoping this time getting really big in spring/early summer will be a bit better in that aspect.

John LOVES me pregnant. Def in a fetish sort of way! He is in heaven right now. No way I can do this again though, so we are enjoying it while we can.

my PP body on the other hand, omg :x
Horrid.

I am not a fan of this whole pregnancy body thing going here. DH loves it. Beyond loves it.

I was impartial. I loved the way I looked in some ways, and how I could wear tight shirts without feeling too self-conscious. Sometimes I felt like a complete cow though, and I definitely didn't feel sexy then! lol

DH seems to feel this way too, he just finds me attractive no matter what.

My pregnant body is the only time in my entire life that I liked the way I looked in the mirror (I've been overweight underweight and everywhere in between but I have body image issues so it's never thin enough). I LOVEd it!!! And apparently I had beer goggles of sorts -baby goggles if you will - bc in photos my face was soooooo swollen but I always thought I looked awesome.

My DH wasn't really a fan. He didn't find me unattractive but the belly inhibited his favorte sex positions so he doesn't miss it.

And yes my pp body is horrid too. I look like someone used my skin as a liferaft and then let all the air out suddenly.

I LOVE being pregnant. I am normally very underweight, having some pregnancy weight makes me look healthy And I think a baby bump is the most beautiful thing. I miss mine terribly already. I find myself trying to rest my hands there...............and there's nothin. My dh loves it too - maybe that's why he keeps getting me that way lol. The only part he doesn't like is when my belly button pops out, that grosses him out.

I was indifferent. I was pleased with the way I looked, but by no means felt sexy. I like being a little more mobile and flexible again haha.

SO loved me pregnant. He didn't really get to enjoy it much because I'm pretty sure I slapped his hand away any time he got near me.

I love my pregnant body, I only wish my belly was a bit bigger. I know that's coming with time, though lol. My SO likes my pregnant body also.

I don't mind my pregnant body until about now (33w) and now I just feel like a cow, even though I'm only up 10 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight.

DH usually enjoys the second and early third trimester, but by this point, he's usually not wanting anything to do with me sexually, but that's not the case this time around.
