I was watching Family Feud with FI last night & that was one of the fast money questions. I was SHOCKED by the answer!
So I thought Id ask the bees to see what you think men said!! On a scale of 1-10, how attractive do you think men find pregnant women?? (10 being smoking hot!)

@Barbiestylez: I voted 7. I have heard a few men say that they find a pregnant women to be SO attractive. One close friend actually said he’s really turned on by it lol There’s just something so beautiful and amazing about it.

Uh, I always thought it depended on who got her pregnant. If she’s knocked up with your kid, she’s beautiful. If she’s knocked up with some other dude’s kid, she’s gross.

DH said that he found me very attractive when I was pregnant. Not the very beginning, when I was exhausted and queasy, and not the very end, when I was swollen, cranky, miserable, and exhausted (again)… but the middle part. The part with the full breasts, the growing belly, the ‘glow’. I’m not sure what it was exactly, but he said something about it just being very feminine and womanly.

@Barbiestylez: I am not sure what Family Feud said, but it seems like evolution would make men find pregnant women attractive for the same reason that big breasts and wide hips are thought to be attractive, because it proves you are fertile and capabale of providing offspring.

I didn’t vote, but based on conversations I already had with guy friends, I think most men will find their own pregnant wife/girlfriend attractive and they are sincere when they tell her she’s beautiful. However, I don’t believe they find pregnant women attractive in general.
But that sounds normal too, right ? I might, logically, if we go back to nature’s basics, a pregnant female means a male can’t mate with her, so what’s the point of being attracted to her ? There must be hormonal explanations behind this as well, just like studies have shown strippers tend to make more money when they’re ovulating. Our hormones still play a big role in attraction/seduction even if we’re ”rational” beings.

I have no idea but I know my husband has been DTF every damn day since we found out we were pregnant lol

I know my FI finds pregnant women gross.
As other PPs have said, it depends who knocked her up.
ETA: I voted 1. I find pregnancy gross.. I don’t care if people don’t like hearing that. I don’t want kids and don’t like staring too long at pregnant stomachs.

@Barbiestylez: I voted “2” b/c I’ve never really heard guys talking positively about prego women in terms of looks. :/ It’s either, “Oh, she’s knocked up” or “Hope she knows who the father is.” :/ Guys can be total a-holes when they are hanging out together.
I wonder if it’s biological though. I mean, think about it – our mission biologically is to reproduce so why would a guy be attracted to someone who is pregnant and hence, will be unable to reproduce with him in the near future? Yes, it’s sad and simplistic, but hey, nature.

I’d say easily a 6 or 7…the thing is, you know a pregnant chick puts out…:p

Don’t you think that would be a difficult question to answer? Attractiveness is incredibly subjective. There’s no “right” or “wrong”, especially when being so general. Guess the answer would be “depends.”

My DH doesn’t find pregnant women to be particularly attractive, but he doesn’t think they’re necessarily unattractive. Overall he just is more attracted to an unpregnant woman.
I think most men probably find their own pregnant SO to be attractive, but I’ve known a couple of guys that just could not wait for their SO to be finished with the pregnancy and lose the weight.
I’d probably guess 4, but your reaction makes me think that its either a really low or a really high number.

Ha. A friend of mine was 25 wks pregnant with twins and we were out for a bachelorette party (no worries she wasn’t drinking). We got turned away at one bar because it was too full and she goes, “Come on…I’m OBVIOUSLY a good time.”

@Barbiestylez: I guess it would depend on how attractive they were before they got pregnant..?? I don’t think someone who looks like they got hit by a truck will all of a sudden be a total hottie just becase she’s pregnant. And vice versa, a very attractive woman isn’t going to look disgusting just because she’s pregnant. And I think a lot of it still comes from how the woman carries herself. Some women are crabby and miserable (regardless of uterine contents) and some are confident and charismatic… I think that has a lot to do with how attractive they are also.
