Today I wanted to share with you something that is really close to my heart. I thought a lot whether I should write about this or not, but since this is my space feel free to ignore this post if you feel uncomfortable. To those who stayed thank you, I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
I was writing a post about our last travel experience to Disney Hawaii, but I kept thinking about something else. This beautiful blogger community is giving me the chance to know some amazing women, with some of them I’m coincidentally sharing this beautiful stage in life called pregnancy.
With pregnancy comes a lot of unwanted advice, but that’s no the theme of today blog post. Today’s blog is about BODY SHAMING. Yes, you might think who in the world would do such a thing specially to a pregnant woman, but trust me, I experienced it myself and I know many other pregnant ladies that will feel related to this.
We all know that motherhood as is it it’s hard enough. Trust me when I tell you that we know how our pregnant body is constantly changing. We have an entire closet as a reminder that we owned clothes and shoes we can’t wear for quite some time. ;(
We don’t need reminders, not even in a ‘sarcastic’ or ‘funny’ way, that our faces are rounder, our hips bigger and our ankles swollen.
Don’t get me wrong, I received the most beautiful compliments and for those I’m grateful. But not everyone has the support I have and some of them can’t deal with these types of comments. So maybe next time you see a pregnant woman remember that… One kind word can change someone’s entire day. 😉
