On Having A B Belly

I have a B belly, and no I don’t mean beer belly 🤰🏻⁣⁣

I think when you become pregnant you have all these expectations of what it’s gonna be like. Is there gonna be nausea, what are your cravings going to look like and also how is your body going to change? With me being #plussizeandpregnant, there aren’t a lot of pregnant role models out there for me to see. Most of the ads you see of pregnant ladies are adorably “normal sized” ladies with the perfect, cutest bumps. Round, perfect D shaped bumps. As I started to grow I had to come to terms that my baby bump would not look like that. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

I will say it made me sad because since I didn’t start out at what society thinks is the “ideal weight,” I felt my baby bump wouldn’t look like the ideal bump. For a long time I didn’t really “show” I just looked bigger. My B shaped bump didn’t look like a baby bump, it looked like a big muffin top and a muffin top that grew bigger as my baby grew bigger. ⁣

⁣As my B belly started to get bigger, I was just glad my bump was growing and my baby was healthy. I was glad to look more pregnant, even if my bump wasn’t perfectly round. And even though there are so many stigmas about being overweight and pregnant, my baby is perfectly healthy and growing right on track. Being overweight has not impacted the health of my baby at all, maybe just the look of my bump. I am so thankful that I also have a great doctor who has never judged me for my weight or made me feel less than because of it (Shout out to Dr. Latrice Allen, you are the best!). ⁣⁣

⁣⁣So I wanted to take this pic of my B belly bump for all the mamas who also don’t have what they think is the “ideal” looking baby bump. Just because it doesn’t look like everyone else’s baby bump doesn’t mean your baby won’t be perfectly perfect when he or she arrives. It also doesn’t mean that you are less than beautiful than all the other expecting mamas out there. You glow and grow that bump! 🤰🏻✨⁣⁣
