Feeling sexy??

My best friend says all the time that the way she used to feel sexy during pregnancy was to put on some black stockings, a short dress, and some heels and strut her stuff. She was 33ish weeks at my wedding rehearsal when her teensy dress and 6 inch heels frightened everyone while she was walking down the aisle. We all had our breath held until she made it safely to a stationary position.

I want to know what you are doing to feel sexy during pregnancy. See, I have given up and just don't feel sexy at all, and honestly, I don't really care. When sexy time comes with DH, I feel sexy enough to get it on and then that's that. 

I feel cute, not sexy. And large. And penguin like. Not like Mrs. MILF down there. That's about it. What about you?

Just saying-this aint me...I hope some of you are this confident.  image

    Nope, not that confident. I dont feel sexy at ALL anymore. I even tried to take a sexy pic to send to hubby since I used to almost every day. I agree, I kinda felt cute...but not sexy.

    I have to admit, my massive boobs are doing the trick. I think they take focus off my giant middle. They're pretty hard to ignore at this point - they precede me into a room.

    I am lucky enough to have a hubby who tells me everyday (sincerely) that he thinks i'm sexy, even as my tummy (and my arms, face & butt) are growing. For me I feel great just by not giving up, i stretch each morning, go for a nice long walk and do a pre-natal yoga routine. It's not super calorie burning, but it makes me feel like I haven't completely given up on myself. It also makes me feel like i have a little wiggle room to do things like eat half of a green bean casserole (a small one in my defense) for lunch. You won't feel sexy every moment of everyday, and i definitely am not rocking a short dress, but sometimes feeling "sexy for being pregnant" is enough for me.

    I deifnitely do not feel sexy. I am thinking of getting something to make me feel a little bit more that way. I hate it.

    I've tried a few and this is my favorite. It's so easy, it's actually relaxing instead of taxing like some others i've tried.

    I think feeling particularly sexy when pregnant is kind of fetishy. I still feel sexy sometimes, but certainly not more sexy than I did five months ago

    I feel incredibly ugly and unattractive. It's not the pregnancy itself, it's the changes to my body. I can no longer wear my contact lenses so I'm always wearing my glasses. My skin is all broken out (not just my face) and very dry. I got my hair cut shortly after getting my BFP and ended up with one of the worst haircuts I've ever had. Blech.

    I don't feel sexy at all! Actually, I tried on a little lingerie outfit that I have a few months back, and was physically disgusted at the way my giant boobs looked in the bra-top part of it! And so pale and veiny... NOT cute!!! Tongue Tied

    This makes me sad! No I am having trouble with my contacts too and have been wearing glasses a lot. I know that it's not a sexy moment when you're being kissed, things are getting heated, and either you or DH has to take off the glasses. So I get that. Your hair will grow! Feel better lady!

    Thanks Steph. You're such a sweetheart.

    I'm not feeling sexy, but starting to feel like my sassy self again.  I darkened my hair (it darkened on it's own but just looked dirty), cut it and am wearing mascara daily and eyeliner to feel extra good :) also trying to do pilates for at least 20 min daily.

     

    *eta:  I also finally went to the dermatologist and got something rx that is safe to use (finacea) and it is slowly helping my horrible acne
