I kno Im not beautiful, but I dont think im ugly either. Im Normal- Okay looking.. atleast I think so. It breaks my heart to share this but it could be just my pregnancy hormones.. I live with my in laws who are beautiful people.. my husbands sister is gorgeous — and I mean it. like Gorgeous hair, face and bod. She gets all prettied up and dressed up while I dont because I try to dress as modest as I Can when im out ( due to religion ) – I Also dont always do my hair because I dont feel lke I need to, I have okay hair but I Dont wanna ruin it through heating devices so I just do it when nessacary.. I do use make up and still try to look as pretty as I can. Often times, My SIL would say– that she doesnt think our baby would be cute- which obviously annoys me.. and when I did my 3D ultra sound yestrday, I just felt so bad because I felt that my baby looked a lot like me. it looks like she has a long pointy nose, not wide and squished like other baby U/S. I showed the fam the DVD today and my other SIL goes ” She has your ears” and laughed and then my MIL goes, I kind of see that she looks like you.” I said me too but im still 28 weeks and Theres plenty of time for her to grow and her feautures are still comin together she said oh yea of course. Im sure it was a harmless comment but no one here calls me pretty, or attractive or anything positive about my appearance. I was used to hearing all the time how beautiful I Was when I lived with my family– from both friends, strangers and my fam. But moving here and with my In laws, its been so hard and made me feel so self consious and harsh with myself. I just wish my baby doesnt look like me and gets only the good features so she doesnt have to struggle with comparing and feeling ugly like me.
Gah, why is this post so sad!
( I was gonna share pics of the U/S but not sure if anyone wants to see )

1) Your inlaws sound like awful, rude people. What does your husband say about all this?
2) of course we want to see the picture!!!

@emilygrace07: He doesnt really comment. The only time he says anything is when I ask him and he says Im beautiful.

@Mrsgurzakovic: I feel so bad you feel like this. I’m sure you are more attractive than you think but what I’ve noticed, sometimes babies look like their parents in separate stages… for example I looked like my mom (super awkward looking) as a baby and now I look like my dad. So your baby could look like you then change a lot!!

@Mrsgurzakovic: You shouldnt be letting your feelings about their looks affect you. Everyone thinks beauty is something different.
Show us pics, so we can reaffirm how beautiful you truly are! 🙂

You know, I bet you’re a lot prettier than you give yourself credit. Why else would your sister in law get so insecure?
Congratulations on your gorgeous little girl – I bet you’re so excited to meet her 🙂

@Mrsgurzakovic: You are gorgeous and your baby will be too, no matter who she looks like. I knowit is hard not to but STOP comparing yourself to other people! You are different, unique and beautiful and you don’t need to be like anyone else.
I would love to look like you, just an FYI.

@Mrsgurzakovic: You have got to be kidding me. YOU DONT THINK YOU ARE PRETTY?
Are you INSANE?
You are SO pretty. And believe me, I’m not one to give false compliments. If I don’t like someone’s dress or ring or something, I just don’t comment at all.
There is no reason in the whole world why you should have low self-esteem. You aren’t even average looking! You are WAYYYY pretty, by ANYONE’S standards.
You have beautiful eyes, and lovely bone structure, and gorgeous coloring. Your face is extremely symmetrical, and you have a GORGEOUS smile. There is not a universe in which YOU are “Okay-looking”. You are straight up PRETTY girl.

@Mrsgurzakovic: Gorgeous, your features are stunning.. You need to give yourself a brake! Your little girl will be lucky to have you as her mommy!

You are beautiful, and if your baby looks like you, she will be beautiful too! Sometimes in-laws can be such jerks! Don’t listen to them.

Op you a very pretty woman and please understand that a 3d US is completely different once you hold that little one in your arms. My son, at first and I mean everyone thought he looked like his daddy. Which okay daddy is a cutie himself. But the more I compare my son’s baby pictures (like at 10 months or so he looks like me) and I am soo not a cute looking woman.
Anyway my son is almost 2 now and he definately looks like his daddy now. Babies looks change so much in the first few years of life. I wouldn’t worry about it.

You are so pretty(and I wouldn’t comment if I thought otherwise) if your baby looks anything like you she will be beautiful! I was terrified my baby would get my nose also after seeing the ultrasound pictures And he came out with the cutest tiniest nose. I wouldn’t worry about the ultrasound pictures because most of the time they look nothing like your baby!
