    Hated it. Didn't feel sexy at all.
    With DD I just cried and cried. Past 30 weeks I wouldn't look in the mirror.
    I got a couple of stretch marks on my butt and was convinced my body was ruined.
    But then after I had her it was ok. The stretch marks disappeared and I lost all the weight.
    With DS I didn't like my body but I wasn't as bad as before.
    People made me feel very horrible because they told me I was huge! Every. Single. Person.
    Once I was picking DD up from school one of the mums said really loud "Jesus she is huge" then laughed. In front of everyone. I cried. People can be so mean to pregnant women.
    Over all I'm not a woman who enjoys pregnancy or the pregnant body.
    Maybe women would feel better with their pregnant bodies if society didn't look at them as freaks. Your only allowed to have a little baby bump one that doesn't make people uncomfortable.
    But I love my babies...

    I loved my bump. I do miss it but made sure to get plenty of photos, even videos when DD was kicking up a storm. DD makes up for it being gone

    Nup. I felt disgusting and still do.

    I refuse to let DP see me naked in the light

    I was already pretty chunky so for me it is actually an improvement I wasn't a fan of my body before I started showing, it looked like I had put on a lot of weight (when I hadn't) and the bloating was not helping. Now I look pregnant and cute, I don't feel particularly sexy though either lol. I think its just too awkward

    No I didn't feel sexy, but I was okay with it. Now 3 months later with stretch marks, a muffin top and loose jiggly skin I'm feeling even less sexy but DD makes it worth it.

    I loved my body whilst pregnant. I had days where I felt fat and yucky but I usually felt beautiful. My hair, skin and nails were amazing as well so that just added to it!

    I'm actually loving my post-baby body now as well - I have a few stretch marks and my boobs will never be the same but overall I feel pretty damn good. Even just after giving birth I was proud of my body, including my podgy tummy - I was so proud of what I'd done.
