@gu3st yep. Also, the fake eyelashes look ridiculous on most people, as they've now gone from natural-looking to spider eyes
I know first hand how painful this is. My first love died unexpectedly in a terrible accident in 2019. We hadn't seen each other in 15 years, although I thought of him frequently.
As much as I hated all the unsolicited advice I received from the moment I announced my pregnancy, my one piece of advice will only ever be - if people ask me - "You do you". No-one has all the answers, you don't need to have answers, and all babies, and parents, are different. It's ok to do what feels right for you and to ignore what doesn't feel right.
Yep. Had mind removed early this year after 20 years. The only reason I got them in the first place was because I let an ex-boyfriend make me feel insecure about their size (a full B cup). They served me well for a while, yet I always hated not being able to hug someone tightly, hold my baby close to my chest, or lay on my stomach properly.
This. For me, the first 12-weeks post-partum felt like the longest time of my life and OMG GROUNDHOG DAY. I was overwhelmed, tired as phuck, had more hormones pumping through me than a classroom full of teenagers and I had no freakin' idea what I was doing. It wasn't until my baby was about 4 months old that I realised, "Hey, I think I've got this". I also had the support of my partner and family, but I wasn't prepared for how isolating it could feel at times, especially when everyone was working and I was home alone struggling to figure it all out with my eyes hanging out of my head. I suck at newborning, but I love every other stage.
Of course she can be proud of her body, I didn't say she couldn't. But posting photos of an near-perfect post-pregnancy body does nothing to stop vulnerable women judging and comparing themselves and feeling that somehow they don't measure up (because let's face it: social media is saturated with post-pregnancy "look at me" shots, almost as if it's the norm when it's not).
I believe Lauren when she says it was a big deal to feel like herself again after having her beautiful baby. That's only natural. But posting a picture on social media? It just comes across as bragging to me.
