i have always been very self concious of my looks. i have always thought of myself as a very pretty, even sexy woman. i have always eaten healthy and kept in shape by working out. when i was younger i was a contestant in beauty pageant and did very well in a few even gaining a state title in 1999. I've always kept in shape by dancing which always kept my self esteem up. early last year i even started working as a dance instructor part time. then in september i found out i was pregnant. this is the 1st child for my husband and I. I am 6 months along now and I feel like a giant whale. I feel so hideous. I've always thought pregnant women were so cute, but i don't feel cute. to make matters worse I had to quit my job as a dance instructor and due to complications with my pregnancy the dr had told us we can not have intercourse. this is putting as strain on our relationship. I don't know how to get over this negative feeling i have about my body. i keep telling myself it's only temporary but i am so depressed over the way i look. i can't even snuggle with my husband because i feel so disgusting. how do i let go of these feelings? how can i connect on an intimate level with my husband if we can't have sex? how do i start to feel pretty again?
