Ladies: If you ever have been, or were to be, pregnant, would you try to remain sexy and attractive the entire time or would you let yourself go?

I don't consider my comfortable style as "letting myself go".

I certainly wouldn't want to gain 100 lbs, if that's what you mean by "comfy". That's just 100 lbs I'd have to work off afterward.

Fortunately, I'll never have to make the choice.

The 'comfy' picture doesn't show a woman who's gained 100 pounds. It shows a woman (Allison Hannigan actually!) all frumpy in sweats when she could be cute instead.

You seem to be missing my point. IMO, being comfy isn't letting yourself go. Letting yourself go is gaining 100 lbs. Or even 50 lbs, for that matter.

Yikes. I don't know. I think I want to adopt. Babies freak me out anyway.

It's true. Dressing down isn't the same as "letting yourself go."
If I'm gonna be pregnant, I'm gonna be comfortable. If that overlaps with cute, great. If not, everyone else and their opinions on what I should be wearing (or should look like) can f*ck right off.

I think 'let yourself go' is a little harsh. If I were about to bring a kid into this world I'd have other things to worry about than being sexy. Would I purposefully throw caution to the winds and turn into a slob? Doubt it.
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/28/09 - 11:34:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, because anyone who doesn't wear high heels and dresses is a pitiful careless person

I'm probably just going to be a foster parent...

Can't I be comfy and cute?

This.

Well, I probably wouldn't wear those shoes. Even though they are cute. I assume I would try to find clothes that resemble my everyday clothes now, except I'd wear flats. So jeans, tops, dress pants, skirts, casual dresses.

Of course! Carmella has the right idea. I didn't necessarily mean you have to walk around in heels, I just meant would you still take the time to dress like you usually do (assuming you don't normally walk around in sweatpants) and wear makeup and do your hair and still TRY.

Maybe some women think there are more important things to life than putting some make-up on to go to the store, especially when you're pregnant?
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/29/09 - 11:42:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Why wouldn't you want to look as attractive as possible? You're gaining weight, getting weird skin things, moody ... why not counterbalance that with making yourself look and feel good?
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/29/09 - 11:50:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
pregnant women have more than enough reason to forgo the entire make-up ridiculousness

they've got more pressing things, I think

Ok, first of all, there are plenty of people who think pregnancy itself is beautiful, so let's get that out there. Not everybody thinks it's this gross thing where you have to "counterbalance" in order to still feel beautiful/attractive/feminine/whatever.

Aside from that, it seems like you're being very judgmental of women who DON'T do makeup/cute clothes/etc. - this reminds me of those crazy women on "A Baby Story" who get their hair and nails done right before delivery, and pack a full makeup bag for the hospital, just so that their baby's first sight of them will be made-up beautiful, not ugly old au naturel.

This. I mean, I maintain good hygiene and I'll dress up for a special ocassion like anyone else, but for the most part, I'm a very casual person. I tend to wear jeans and my water polo sweatshirt as opposed to a sundress or skirt, and I never wear make-up.

But I'm glad I spend my time reading books and freely socializing rather than constantly fretting about my appearance.

Oh no...maybe I've let myself go?!

No, you just have healthy self-esteem.

Hahaha. I know, Harold. Complete sarcasm intended.

Frankly, I seem to "let myself go" (according to your definition) when I'm not pregnant.

I did the same when I was pregnant.
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/29/09 - 4:09:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, seriously, some people's self-worth isn't tied into their image.
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/29/09 - 6:43:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'll definitely not let anyone say "Well, you're eating for two now." Just eat like normal and see what happens.
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/29/09 - 6:45:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think of "letting myself go" as not exercising, eating unhealthy foods, not maintaining my appearance (hair, shaving, general hygiene, etc.), that sort of thing. I don't consider wearing different clothes to be a major change.

I would try to take even better care of myself if I was pregnant. This might mean cutting corners on things like time spent doing your makeup each day, but I can't imagine myself ever "giving up" on my appearance.
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/29/09 - 11:09:36 PM EST (GMT-5)

how about I just stay looking dorkish and normal as usual?
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 11/30/09 - 2:41:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Um, who says you can't be sexy and attractive in sweatpants? I don't wear a lot of makeup or high heels or what have you, but I feel pretty damn good anyway. I can't see why having a giant egg-shaped lump on my stomach would change this.
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 11/30/09 - 10:47:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah clash, but you have to realize, this question is coming from someone who thinks women who don't wear makeup must just be lazy. Or lesbians. (?)
