Top 5 Body Insecurities of a Rookie Mom

April 13, 2016

"Grabe yung stretchies ko!"

Hiya, Rookie Mommas!

I can't believe that I'm making a blog post for this one. But, this should be funny considering the amount of people I have offended lately because of my petty complaints on some of my body part. 

The thing is, I am so lucky and blessed to be born with such a good gene, we look younger than our age, our skin is fair, and we don't get fat. But, becoming a mother brought me so much insecurities. At times, I like to complain about them, thus offending other people.

Here's a run down of the top insecurities that I have now that I am mom,

  • Flabby Arms

My usual line:

"Grabe yung flab ng arms ko oh, tignan nyo." *wiggles my arm

Their reactions:

"Kakahiya naman sayo, pano pa yung braso namin?"

Seriously, guys, slim or not, having flabby arms doesn't look good. For me, at least.

  • Stretch Marks

No offense meant to those who love their stretchies. I don't love mine. I hate my stretchies. I look at them everyday and it always reminds me of how I can never wear a bikini again. I mean, I could. But, I won't.

  • Flabby Belly

My usual line:

"Ang taba ko na grabe, yung flabs ko..."

Their reactions:

"Kung sayo ganyan ano pa itong samin?"
"Sa lagay na yan nanganak kana, eh kami mukang nanganak na hindi pa nanganganak."

Quoting my beloved office mates: Rodney and Maron for this. HAHA!

Remember this movie? I swear I have flabs. Meron talaga, hindi niyo lang nakikita! 

I.HAVE.FLABS. and I hate it. 

What's more frustrating is that I am too lazy to work it back to my previous belly shape. And, I love to eat. So, priorities. *chuckles.

  • Dark Underarms

Just like the image above. My underarms went dark. As in nag brownout after I have given birth. They say it's the hormones, pero intense kasi yung pag dark nya. I noticed an improvement after a few months but it is never the same. I miss my fair-skin underarms. *cries

  • ACNE / Breakouts

Okay, I don't solely blame pregnancy and motherhood for this one, but because I am constantly puyat and exposed to pollution and stress, I get breakouts and acne very often. As in it felt like high school days all over again. Ugh...

We all have our own insecurities and I guess it is hard to be vocal about them but people says that with today's technology, you can either just accept them or do something about them. :)

Rookie Mommy PH - I hate my stretchies.
