Pregnancy & Body Image: Illustrated in Women's Words
By 5resolutions on October 06, 2009
We interviewed more than 400 women for our new body image guide, Does This Pregnancy Make Me Look Fat? When we asked expectant mothers to describe their bodies, there was little hesitation. We were struck by the visceral quality of their descriptions, which were filled with enthusiasm, awe, and sometimes sheer frustration and disgust.
These illustrations from our book represent a sampling of the actual words women shared with us. What words would you use/have used to describe your pregnant body?
