2 Bumps

I have lots of pregnant friends on FB.. & they post some pretty revealing photos, and ask where all mine are CONSTANTLY

They are of all ages.. 22 all the way up to 38 yrs old.. theres a few of them that put some pictures of them in the mirror, like totally looking naked, showing like half their boobs & what not on Facebook for the world to see.. and then theres one who has a pretty fierce looking belly that i cannot believe she even uncovers and puts on fb, but to each their own.. they constantly harass me asking where my weekly pictures are of my naked somach.. I have no stretch marks, and am not over weight and i have an adorable belly(i think, but i think most people think theirs is cute haha) but all my pictures it is covered up and im not doing weird things in them half naked.. anyone else think people post a little too much on facebook when it comes to naked pregnant bellies?/BOOBS?

  • Tell them there is nothing wrong with being conservative and its gonna stay that way so they can stop badgering you to show your belly like they do.

  • If you're not comfortable showing it, then you don't have to. And if you're not comfortable seeing it, then don't look. But what they see is the miricle of their belly expanding as the life inside of it grows. That's all anyone should see when looking at pregnant belly pics. You are the one putting perverted lables on something so beautiful. And you know what? The best way to see how a belly is changing is not when it's covered up with clothes. And that attitude about exposing a less than perfect belly is part of the reason people have body image issues. With all the stretch marks I got from my son my stomach looked like a bowling ball when I was at my largest. And after his birth my stomach looked like a bowl of bread dough that got punched down. And I don't feel any disgust when I look at my belly! It's beautiful because of what it has done and what it says is that I became a MOTHER!!

  • Its distasteful to show naked pics on a public forum, but some are cute (tasteful) and they are just excited mommies.

  • Not everybody has to show pregnancy pics on facebook. I don't do it, it's not everybody's business.
