Great pics but I know I'll end up egg shaped from my neck to my ankles, it's the last two months that terrify me, I'm sure that l'll be the first woman to pop open like a ripe watermelon!
Did you put on a lot of weight?

:lol

It's not that bad, honestly! :D And feeling your little person move around inside your womb, watching your body become more rounded and work "miracles" (that's what it feels like! :) ) makes everything else from morning sickness - back pain, worth it.

I was under-weight before I ever had kids, so I naturally put on a lot of weight with my first pregnancy (about 28kgs!! :-O :D ), but lost most of it within 6 months of giving birth (you immediately lose about 10kgs after giving birth - and then if you breastfeed, the extra weight should "fall off" quickly enough) - but I was glad that I didn't lose all of the weight that I'd gained because I looked much better with the extra 5 kgs. Next 2 pregnancies I didn't gain as much.... about 15 kgs each time, and I lost the extra weight within 4 - 6 months of giving birth without even trying because I was breastfeeding SO MUCH (all the time around the clock!! lol) that it seems all of my fat was being used in the production of my milk (the milk being very high in fat itself).

All in all, I much prefer my body now to what it was like before I had kids. I was a scrawny, little, flat-chested runt.... and now I look more like a woman. :D I've actually got boobs now, which is a bonus! :lol Some women I know feel the same, but not all of course.... I have friends who gained a lot of weight and then just couldn't lose it. But if you exercise a lot and eat well, I'm sure you could avoid those problems. :thumbup

Well, he has all those concubines, and likes to go on about how women's only function is really to have sex and please men and all that crap.... so I'm assuming his gentlemanly behaviour toward you is all a ploy to entice you into his harem.... hmmmmm.... ;) :D

Okay.... so Suut's a no go.... what about Osweee? I reckon he'd be a goer. :thumbup

Indeed, pregnancy is beautiful. I always gained a lot with each pregnancy. I gained 25 kg with the first one, 20 kg with the second one, and at age 38 with the third child 25 kg. I have gained a total of 70 kg with the three pregnancies:-O . Even my shoe size went from a size 6 to a size 7. Looking at it this way it can be almost frightening. I was a size 6 and after the first two pregnancies I stayed a size 10 for a while. When I got pregnant the third time I had lost some weight without even trying. I had been running for quite some time and went down to a size 4, which was actually to little. With this pregnancy I started putting on weight right after the second month.

I felt good, with all three pregnancy. When I had the boys I was a full-time mother. With my daughter I had already been into my career for quite a few years. I never missed a day of work during this pregnancy, even worked a 8-hour shift the day my daughter was born. Did I get my size 4 back? No, not a chance. I am sure my age had something to do with it and the fact, that I had to have major surgery with a year of therapy right after her birth. Today at age 52, I am quite comfortable in a size 8/9. My husband always tells me he now has more to hug, and he loves it.
I run, I jog, I swim, I am pretty solid. Most important, I feel good and healthy, at least 99% of the time.

My advise to all the young women: find the man you want to spend the rest of your life with and have those beautiful babies.

Not at all. Pregnancy might be a great feeling for a woman - indeed, a big belly is not beautiful.

That's my opinion. By the way: Gestibus non disputandum est.

I think what makes a woman even more beautiful to her husband during pregnancy is the fact, that she is carrying this "Little Person" inside of her, created by both of them through the ultimate act of love, the most intimate act, where the mind, the soul and the body of two individuals become one.

I agree with Georgia. :thumbup

I can see how a pregnant woman carrying another man's baby may not be beautiful to a man who's not the father. Furthermore, if this were commonplace occurance (for men to be "turned off" by women pregnant with other men's babies), then perhaps there could even be a biological basis for it... like keeping a pregnant woman safe from sexual advances from men, other than the father of her baby. Maybe a baby bump could be like a sign to your average guy saying ---> "leave this woman alone... no sex here! She's carrying another man's baby!"



Pregnancy might be a great feeling for a woman - indeed, a big belly is not beautiful.
*sigh* Nevertheless, I do feel pity for those who see ugliness where others interpret beauty - regardless of whether we're talking about bellies, or anything else. Those who can't see the beauty within the bounds, miss so much. :)

When I was expecting my son, I regrettably didn't get the chance to be a "happy, beautiful, glowing" pregnant woman. Having a lot of conflicts and arguing with the father of the baby, I really didn't feel like I could focus on the baby or get some quiet time or something like that.
I truly regret not changing the situation (regardless the consequences) because when I had my baby, I saw, that my stressful pregnancy had effect on him. He was crying a lot, more than any other baby that I got to know and nearly always needed physical contact.
Plus i gained almost 30 kilos, most of the weight in the last 2 months, I had awful oedemas, barely could wear shoes in the last weeks. I put that down to not having the time or oppartunity to care for myself. :(

But: I did like my belly :)
And I loved the little person kicking me from inside.....

After giving birth to my son, I rapidly lost the 30 kilos without dieting or something, I just didn't get a lot of sleep and was always moving.

I would like to have another baby someday......but only under circumstances allowing a happy and relaxed pergancy. ;)

Interesting. I thought all men regarded pregnant women as being more beautiful than when they aren't pregnant, even if the child isn't theirs. It appears I've been mistaken.

Some of the women in the first pages of this thread, just looking at them and their big bellies makes my heart race! Especially women who are in late stages of pregnancy, it's just indecribable to me! Especially if the woman is blond. ;)

Someday I want to see a blond woman pregnant with, like, triplets or quadruplets. I think I would have to sit down to catch my breath! :)

Honestly? Sexy? Or just beautiful? I'm starting to wonder how many guys differentiate between the two... beautiful and sexy? :scratch

There's definitely a difference between being beautiful and being merely "sexy", though the two often coincide, particularly among young women. Still, it's possible for a woman to be sexy without being particularly beautiful, or to be beautiful without arousing a sexual reaction. Clothing is definitely a factor, even when most guys, including myself, usually do not notice or care about the particulars of fashion.

Actually, pregnacy sucks.

The woman gets deformed, eats a lot, sleeps a lot, YELLS a lot and is driving you crazy with her hormonal crisis every day...

But in the end, a new life comes out...a new soul will walk the earth..


I witnessed it all and a few days ago i finally met my first nephew! From my sister!

A good thing about pregnancy, is that women look really prettier, immediately after, while they tend to look uglier, when pregnant. Of course, this lasts propably for only a short time after the birth.

These are in all honesty my opinions, fcuk political correctness.

:rotfl It's true to an extent :D ... but if you think it's that bad as an outsider, just observing, I can't imagine how you could ever handle having to BE pregnant yourself! :D Yes, some of the pregnancy journey is hell, that's for sure. But it's a sacrifice in many ways that women make... and like you've said, at the end of it all, it's worth it. A new person is created.

And for this sacrifice, I believe women should be respected.

When I started this thread about pregnancy being beautiful, I intended to convey the beauty of new life being created... blah blah blah... not to focus so much on whether or not women are thin, have nice skin, look sexy etc.

Apparently i wont have to bear a child and be 'pregnant', since i am a MAN, so i wouldnt care in the least, IF i would handle being pregnant. I provide the seed for women to get pregnant so that i will live forever, and by the way women who oppose men according to their standards, ("you couldnt do it yourself") are plain ridiculous..







Yes, some of the pregnancy journey is hell, that's for sure. But it's a sacrifice in many ways that women make... and like you've said, at the end of it all, it's worth it. A new person is created.

Its a "sacrifice"? What exactly is it you re saying women are sacrificing because i didnt get it. Its just the natural thing for a woman to do, to enhance survival of her kind. Its not like a 'superhuman' thing women do, "sacrificing" theirselves. Its what women are made for, physically and in most other ways.

For this fact, i respect Nature, not women.

And this is because women many times have children that become worthless or even malicious and evil beings, because of the things done or not done by a woman before and after birth. Needless to continue, i wouldnt want to criticize women, though justifiably, in a thread were you supposedly feel good about yourselves..

I dont have to 'respect' women, women should learn to respect THEIRSELVES, and their role in creating and nurturing the new generations..in a RESPONSIBLE AND SUBJECTIVE WAY


There is an old saying in my country:

"Αν οι γυναίκες ήτανε σωστές, δεν θα υπήρχαν άντρες μες τις φυλακές"

"If all women were 'ok', there wouldnt be any men locked up in prisons"


..figure it out yourself




A good thing about pregnancy is that without it humanity would have died out before it really began. ;) Such things transcend "looking pretty" or "looking ugly".


Well, its not a secret that a good looking woman does not go unoticed






When I started this thread about pregnancy being beautiful, I intended to convey the beauty of new life being created... blah blah blah... not to focus so much on whether or not women are thin, have nice skin, look sexy etc.



It depends on the sex of the observer.

This thread is one of the most beautiful threads in the forum, a forum plenty of optimism, the optimism that gives a new life. In addition the white Europe needs children, a lot of them, and the economy doesn´t give almost any possivility to having, in addition, there is another problem, the mentality of many people.
But women are more beautiful and are mothers, one of the most beautiful things in the world.
