Hello loves! I wanted to talk to do a recap of my makeup looks in the recent months. Most of these looks were done before I knew I was pregnant but they were all done while I was pregnant. And you can really see the “glow” grow. I also want to touch on a subject that has been difficult for me my entire life. I have never been thin/skinny/lean by any means… I had just hit a 40 lb weight loss when I found out I was pregnant. Now I am in the process of gaining weight, which sort of makes me upset… My body is transforming into an incubator, but I have never been more confident in my beauty.
If my due date is completely accurate I was about two weeks pregnant in this first picture!
It is kind of wild seeing some of these FOTD’s because I am looking at them knowing that I was blind to the fact that I was pregnant!
Going about my daily life as though nothing major was going to be changing in less than a year.
I can honestly say that since I have found out I was pregnant I have been more confident in my beauty. And I am not saying that in a self-centered way; I am not even meaning external beauty at all. I am saying pregnant women are amazing. They are growing a human inside of them and still handle daily life as though nothing ever happened.
Some are already mothers, caring for their children. MANY have steady employment and lots of other responsibilities. Not to mention the work of preparing for the newborn. Doctor visits crammed in where ever you can manage! Being pregnant is a full time job on it’s own.
This next picture was taken 2 days before I took my pregnancy test. I was about 6 weeks pregnant in this shot.
You can see that I look sort of sleepy in the next one. Pregnancy really wears on the body and really drains you of all energy.
But then after a really great rest, you just have to get up and do it all over again!
I am gaining weight, and although I am not happy with where my body is right now I know I am making it extra comfy for my growing child. This post is sort of an emotional one for me… Mostly because I am emotional but also because this is just me rambling about my inner thoughts that I never usually share with anyone. Please don’t make fun of me, as I am very sensitive right now! LOL
