That Hot Body
During pregnancy it can be easy to get caught up in all the negatives about your appearance: if the size of your belly is bothering you, then that’s probably all you’ll ever see in the mirror; if your hair or skin feels oily, than that could be enough to make you see the rest of your body in a negative light.
But one of the keys to feeling sexy is to focus on the positives that pregnancy brings:
- Beautiful Hair: Believe it or not, expect to see some beautiful, shiny, thick hair during the second trimester of your pregnancy. As your hormones kick in, they will begin to nourish your hair, making it feel gorgeously silky and smooth!
- Long Nails: If you’ve had trouble growing your nails in the past, you don’t need to worry anymore! Pregnancy often causes fingernails to grow faster than they would normally, which means you can show them off in a variety of styles and colors!
- Glowing Skin: You’ve heard people talking about that pregnancy glow, and you may be waiting for yours to kick in. Well, don’t worry, it will! The increased blood flow during pregnancy will give your complexion a rosy glow!
- More Cleavage: Pregnancy often increases the size of your breasts by one or two cup sizes. Enhance that cleavage and enjoy it!
Let's talk about sex during pregnancy!
Sex can often be a big issue with couples during pregnancy. You might not be feeling sexy enough to actively participate in your old sex routines for a number of reasons.
Some women feel awkward with the changes in their body and worry about their partner touching them in intimate ways. You may be afraid that your partner won’t find you attractive anymore or even want to be sexually intimate.
In fact, many men find that pregnancy only enhances your sexual attraction. That added weight gain, those new curves, and that pregnant belly are a real turn-on for most men, and shouldn’t stop you from participating in sexual activity.
If you are finding it hard to be sexy when it comes to the bedroom, talk with your partner about your fears. Keeping an open and honest dialogue often goes a long way to boosting body image.
Try cuddling, kissing, or showering together to get the heat going, or focus on other intimate activities such as body massages, baths, and candlelit dinners.
The right underwear can also go a long way to making you feel sexy, and you’ll be glad to know that there are a variety of pregnancy thongs, bikinis, briefs, and bras to keep you feeling and looking your best!
