You deserve to have a healthy sex life, so don't use your pregnancy as an excuse to rant at your man, make it all about you and slack off in the beauty department. None of that will help you maintain the chemistry in your relationship and keep that marriage hot and spicy.
Currently, I'm on a romantic vacation in St. Lucia with my husband -- aka our babymoon. We probably will choose not to get away for 10 nights in the next year or so, so this trip was our chance for a sexy checkout.
I've packed all my alluring ammunition - sting bikinis, form-fitting colorful dresses, my go-to pregnancy lotions & potions from Mama Mio and Naturopathica, and titillating evening lingerie. My arsenal of tricks are clearly working, as my husband can't keep his eyes and hand off me.
It's not easy being a belly bump on the beach. No matter how I try, I still have stretch marks on my inner thighs and a pinch of fat on my upper back. Oh and while my pimples are tamed on my face, my back is another story. But at six months, I feel confident because I know I'm doing everything to maintain my style and beauty. I'm not surrendering and I'm conscious of the role I play in preserving the intimacy of my marriage.
My husband appreciates this very VERY much. Pregnant or not, I'm his hot wife. And, in less than three months, I'll be a mommy; but I'll also be a MILF ... Mom is Looking Fabulous.
If you know that it's your right to have a healthy sex life and that you deserve to be loved, you will look like somebody who deserves to be loved on! Tweet me if you agree. Tweet me if you don't. I can't wait to hear from you.
