Beautifying pregnancy

I feel like I need to brag a little about my pregnancy while I can, I hope you can excuse me for that. We’ve all heard about this special glow coming from pregnant women, right? Well, I’m not sure I have that (although my Grandma does say that I have a face of a pregnant lady whenever we Skype).

However, I must say that this whole pregnancy thing has been really beautifying for me when it comes to my skin and hair. I know you can’t see it from where you are, but trust my word. It’s almost too good to be true! My skin has never been so flawless in my life, I haven’t seen a single imperfection on my face for months now. And the even skin tone, too! Used to be absolutely unheard of.
As for my hair, it’s crazy thick now. I don’t think I’m losing any hair at all! Before I used to lose quite a lot while washing my hair or brushing it. Now, it’s more like one or two hair straws, if I brush it really vigorously!

Of course, these things can change overnight thanks to all the hormones. Although, I’m kind of hoping it’s going to stay that way at least for a while! The price to pay was that I was completely covered with red pimples during the first two months. I remember avoiding mirrors during that period. And then after two months the spots were suddenly all gone!

So yeah, that’s a pretty good bonus from being pregnant, apart from the obvious benefits. I almost wish I could recommend it as a beautifying treatment, but of course I can’t!

    It’s true – my hair never looked better than when I was pregnant. Unfortunately, afterwards, it got really thin but the thinness was only temporary…..and of course my babies were so worth it!!

    You are very beautiful now, it is true, and a kind of radiant!! It is really pleasant to look at your photos now, there is something very special about them!
    P.S. Maybe you will also write some words about stereotypes about pregnancy (for example, you drink coffee and paint your nails, as I’ve understood from the recent posts), did your life routine change a lot when you found out about your baby.

    You are always beautiful Antonia, and I’m sure you’ll be a gorgeous mom no matter what the hormones do =) By the way, would you do a post on something like what you do to take care of yourself when pregnant? Like about food, exercise, skincare, etc.? Just curious ^^

    I always felt so pretty when I was pregnant. It is not so for many woman! It seems you either feel fabulous or terrible! I’m glad you are having a great pregnancy, (maybe it is something about carrying a boy! That’s the old wive’s tale)
