Pregnant & Proud 

You know when I thought I looked my prettiest best?? 

Not on my 16th birthday. 

Not even on my wedding day

Not even in my thinnest, sexist avatar

I looked and felt most beautiful, when my tummy was popping out of my body, my walk was that of a penguin and my face had the pregnancy glow even though with the dark pigmentation of pregnancy mask. I was 15 + kilos of my normal body weight, my movements were restricted, clothes didn’t fit, but man! I looked and felt so sexy. So divine!!!


Ask anyone who knew me in my pregnancy. They will tell you that I was an excited bunny, who didn’t even need any makeup to look gorgeous. I was very happy in front of the mirror. 

Even my pregnancy photoshoot was done in my ” out of bed look” with not even a lip gloss on my lips or mascara on my eyes. It was ” au natural”, because that’s how confidently beautiful I felt. 


I saw #kareenakapoor walk down the ramp in her most gorgeous pregnant self, and I felt happy and hopeful for us women. Pregnancy and pregnancy weight is not something to hide or be ashamed of. It’s something to bask in and flaunt with no apologies. She said in an interview that she ” owned” her pregnancy, and in my own humble way, I did that too..


Pregnancy is not a disease. It can be inconvenienent and uncomfortable but it’s the most beautiful & surreal transformation both physically and mentally that you can go through. Feeling an alive, kicking, hiccuping human inside you is freaky and miraculous at the same time. Feeling the cocktails of emotions on a daily basis, crying at the drop of a hat and day dreaming blatantly feels like an out of body experience. It’s the time when you burp and fart out loud without a care in the world, you walk with your tummy popping out and never a care to sick your gut in for a photo. You are your natural best. Close to your own soul, connecting with a soul coming to life through you. 


Sharing with you guys a picture of me when I was pregnant and a picture of gorgeous Kareena Kapoor. Atleast on my page I can share a spotlight with her 😹😹😹


Happy Pregnancy!! ( Or the memory of it)

  1. I am expecting as well and I must admit the first few times I didn\’t feel that great. The changes were very dramatic and I had to adjust. These past three times however, have been different. I have embraced my pregnant body and I am in love with it! -Breyona Sharpnack

    1. Absolutely. I also had aches and pain and nausea like every other pregnant woman. I guess my focus was on bringing the baby in this world and hence I was feeling pretty super-womanish 😊
