Pregnant ladies are inherently beautiful, but they do not always feel that way. A few years ago one of my friends was pregnant with her first child, and although everyone praised her healthy glow and gorgeous hair, she felt less than fabulous. She couldn't see it, commenting instead on how she felt like she was falling apart. Because all pregnant ladies deserve to see their beauty and feel great about themselves, it’s important to note the real beauty benefits of pregnancy.
And yes, there are benefits. From a curvier form to that famed pregnancy glow, there are many ways that pregnancy boosts your inherent gorgeousness. Even if you feel less than thrilled about your changing body, those around you probably just see the good things. After reading about these pregnancy beauty benefits, hopefully you can also see that ways pregnancy has made you even more stunning, even on days when you’d give anything to just be done with the whole ordeal already. Read on to learn how pregnancy beautifies your hair, skin, and nails, as well as the surprising effect it may have on your other features. (Hint: you may not need any lip plumper for nine months.)
