Extremely Insecure :(

I feel so fat and pale and unattractive. I don't know how to make myself feel beautiful. I hate looking at myself in the mirror. Anyone have any advice?

Treat yourself. Dedicate an while day to yourself because you deserve it. And you are beautiful you're creating life and nothing is more precious than that.

It's always helped me to go get my nails done or buy a new outfit or shoes or make up product or something like that. I started getting Birchbox and Ipsy when I was about 16 weeks. It helped me so much to feel better about myself when I had new beauty products to try! If you have the extra money to spend, spoil yourself a little. :)

I am going through the same thing right now.. try self tanning for the paleness. It's completely safe. Try banana boats self tanner. I worked at ulta and it's the best one for like 6 bucks. It's a lotion and it's perfect. Try using Lorac makeup for sensitive skin. It's formulated with skin soothing antioxidants. The whole brand is made for sensitivity

(I was a beauty consultant and received regular training on product knowledge) I know what I'm talking about. I also did makeup for weddings and have only suggested banana boat self tanner

Don't feel that way ! You're beautiful . You're a mother && creating life . Nothing prettier than that . Everyone feels insecure at some point but just remember how great you'll feel when you're holding your sweet baby .
