Pregnant bellies have a unique beauty to them because we know that there is a baby growing inside the body. The fact that the body can even allow this to happen is so incredible.

Pregnant bellies are beautiful.

In many and any shape.

In many and any size.

If you’re pregnant now, I want you to take this to heart.

Because people say strange things to pregnant women.

You’re big.

You’re small.

You’re carrying high.

You’re carrying low.

That baby is going to come out so small.

That baby is going to come out huge.

Are you having twins? No? Are you sure?

You must be due any day now! No? Are you sure?

Where are you hiding that baby?

The list goes on….

Pregnancy is one of those times where you need to stay in your own body and your own space. Bodies carry babies differently. There’s really no use for comparison about your pregnant body to another body that makes you react or feel anything in a negative emotional way.

Bodies are different. Babies are different. It’s all fine. A body will carry a baby differently based on so many factors:

• First vs. subsequent pregnancy

• Alignment

• Your body fat levels

• Your muscle mass levels

• The tone in the abdominal wall

• Baby’s position in the body

Today, I want to share with you what different pregnant bodies look like at different stages of pregnancy. These bodies are all beautiful. They are all the right size. Exactly as they are.
