Insecurity over body image and guilt.
I know 99% of this is just hormones, but I’m having a really hard day with body image at almost 25 weeks pregnant. I got out of the shower and looked in the mirror and started crying and can’t really shake the feelings. I am having a hard time with the way I look, but I’m also battling the guilt I feel for even feeling this way to begin with. It’s not even just the belly; it’s where weight has distributed other places and changed certain things. I knew my body would change, but I guess I just didn’t realize it would this much. It makes me feel like a bad mom because I should be more grateful for having a heathy baby thus far, especially after going through a miscarriage last year before this pregnancy. Does/did anyone else go through these feelings, and how did you overcome it to love yourself a little more?
