  • Pregnancy changes your body, no doubt. It's inevitable, and it's okay. But every pregnant woman has her moments of feeling fat and ugly. Even Lara Quigaman, who's pregnant for the third time, still feels sad and insecure sometimes.  

    The soon-to-be mama of three opened up about it their family vlog. On the way home from her first prenatal checkup since the quarantine, she noticed that her face looks big and adjusting the frame. She also just found out that she had gained 18 pounds, way more than her goal.

    "Nakikita ko rin talaga kapag tumitinign ako sa salamin na lumalaki na yung mukha ko, nangignitim na yung leeg ko, yung kili-kili ko," she said. "Because of that din, the past few days, I have been feeling low," Lara admitted. 

    "Ayokong kumilos, ayokong gumawa ng kahit ano, ayokong mag-vlog kasi nga parang feeling ko na ang taba-taba ko na at hindi ako maganda," Lara added. The actress and former beauty queen is 26 weeks pregnant, and she knows that she'll only get even bigger as her pregnancy progresses. 


    Her feelings are intensified when she sees other pregnant women who doesn't seem to look changed. 'Bakit parang ang ganda pa rin nila, parang ang seksi pa rin nilang buntis, parang hind naman sila tumataba or pumapanget," Lara lamented. 

    To feel better, Lara reminds herself that it's a normal part of pregnancy. "It really helps na kahit papaano, we take time na mag-ayos tayo ng konti,' she advised along with eating healthily, take their prenatal vitamins, and engage in enough exercise.

    "Also, don't compare yourself with wth other moms," Lara stressed. "It's okay however you look as long as you know you're taking care of yourself, she added. She also credited her husband Marco Alcaraz for always telling her she's beautiful and taking care of her. 

    The preggo mama showed for the first time raw photos of what she looked like when she gave birth to her sons to prove that moms can reclaim their bodies.

    Most of the preggy body changes, such as dark skin areas, will disappear.  For the changes that may seem permanent, like stretch marks, Lara says she reminds herself that it's her body that bore and gave birth to her kids.  

    "When you see yourself in the mirror, and you don't like what you see, that's okay," Lara said, nearly about to cry. 

    "I-pony mo yung hair mo, suklay mo yung buhok mo, magpowder ka na konti, konting blush-on, and then look at your children. Isipin niyo na, galing sa akin yan," she said as tears fell down her cheeks. 

    Lara added that it doesn't matter how we see ourselves or how we compare with others women. "What's important is how God sees us, And God sees us as beautiful mothers, beautiful women, and he loves us so much. "
