Creeping up on 32 weeks pregnant and with each week I lose a bit of my confidence. It’s normal in the third trimester to feel like everything is getting bigger everywhere, leg cramps to itchy belly and heartburn all the things that are just NOT HOT hit even harder when you’re close to the end. It’s been very hard for me to feel “sexy” when I’m feeling like a massive cow but even if I do feel this way its extremely important that I put in the effort to look good FOR MYSELF because in return I’ll feel better mentally which goes a long way for me, baby, and the loved ones that surround us. So many health benefits come from feeling good- mentally and physically. The results are positive on so many levels. It surrounds you with good company, keeps baby happy, prevents postpartum depression, and keeps your relationship strong, healthy, and solid. I’m a married woman who has vowed to never ever lose myself even when things gets tough. I love my man, the relationship we have and it’s my duty to keep him on his toes so he doesn’t go searching else where. There are women out there that will give your man what you aren’t… I’ve seen it first hand in relationships close to me and have learned from that. “Michael the grass is never greener on the other side mutha f’errr… I will set FIRE to that grass!” Fear is how I keep him…. ahahha jk (kind of.) No, but really it’s easy to just let go but once you do a lot of the times everything else goes too. It doesn’t matter what size you are there is always an outfit or a special something that can put a smile on your face and get you feeling good when you look into the mirror. Mine are these Stuart Weitzman thigh high boots! They are magical to my preggo soul. ahahha Too dramatic? I’ve had my eye on them for a while and then one day I was waddling around Rodeo Drive with Michael and he went in and bought them for me. I didn’t want to get them because I didn’t feel good and didn’t think I looked nice in anything but as soon as I put them on…. oooh I felt like getting on a stripper pole and…. JOKING!!! Geez. No, I just felt womanly and nice again. Thank you Michael for putting up with me and thank you Stuart Weitzman for these boots that have helped my self esteem. ahahha Oh, and thank you son of mine inside my belly for allowing me to feel all of these things I’ve never felt before and allowing me to lose absolute control over my body so that I can appreciate it again once I have you in my arms. We will be doing a lot of working out together love of my life. Can’t wait to meet you, we are almost there!!! <3 E.
