please don't think i'm shallow but how do i get rid of the face puff

i'm 9 months pregnant and i'm not overweight at all, i've gained 25 lbs worth of baby stuff (placenta, fluid, and baby) and i've managed to stay in great shape but today my husband took a picture of me holding our cat and my face looked so fat in the picture. i have the aweful puffiness under my chin that makes me look like i'm 300 lbs if you only photograph my face. i almost cried and asked him to delete them. it's so embarassing and i don't want to be photographed at all. i don't have swelling anywhere else, not my hands, not my ankles or feet, just under my chin. is there any way i can get rid of this swelling? i know it might seem like nothing but it makes me so self conscious that i only want people photographing me from the shoulders down

  • don't delete your photos...i was the same way and now i look back at them and say "My goodness i was beautiful to be pregnant" and think i look fat now. You will regret not having any photos of your pregnancy

  • allow people to take pictures but not show you until after the birth. keep them atleast for your child, for a photo album. they'll never say you looked ugly.

  • I thought I looked horrible when I was pregnant, but when I look back on pictures I remember myself so much bigger than I actually was. If it bothers you that much there is always photoshop:)
