Online preggo pictures tasteful or distasteful

Now that I'm in my mid-twenties more and more friends from high school and college are getting pregnant. And there's a reason I chose the word 'pregnant' and not baby because people bombard the web with naked preggo pictures!!

No I didn't order a side of naked belly shots with my morning bagel!

What happened to sensors or where is the 'do you agree you are 18 years or older' button to click? Don't think I'm a hater on pregnant women, I think tastefully covered ballooning bellies are very adorable. I don't want to see the naked belly! I blame the 90s for this. The same girls who lifted their shirts to show their piercings or pulled down their pants to show off their tramp stamp are now exposing their belly.

I posed the question to a group of friends. Do you want to see an exposed pregnant picture of your mom. The answer was a resounding NO!! The pregnant pictures aren't for the future baby to admire and say 'aw look that's me!'. It's instead the mothers saying LOOK AT ME! So, make your photos private or better yet send texts to your closer friends instead of a mass wall post. One of my really good friends did the latter, and instead of choking on my bagel I said awww.

  1. Oh, I know. Many of my high school colleagues and some girls from college are posting porn-ish pictures with themselves being pregnant. I know I should be admiring the pregnancy beauty and glow but some of them can be, well...nasty. It seems there's quite a trend nowadays....unfortunately.

    1. Yes and probably won't be going away anytime soon

  2. Haha I totally agree with you on this one! It's so annoying! I always have to hide the post as it puts me right off. Every time I go on FB there's some awful photo that makes me think 'Why am I friends with these people?' Haha!

    Love your blog. Such real, interesting content. Makes a refreshing change to most blogs =)

    Thanks for following my blog by the way!
