The Young Mummy Shares Hilarious Unfiltered Maternity Pics – Keeping It Real On The Mum Front

We love The Young Mummy here in The Healthy Mummy office. She’s young, vibrant, raw and her hilarious blog posts resonate with us.

She loves sharing pictures of herself, all glammed up, with bump on display and red lipstick. But she wants to show us that her life is not all glam and fab.

I feel like I deceived you all. I uploaded a photo of me looking pretty darn glamorous. And although I like that photo of myself, and I did put in effort to go out in the city looking ‘nice’ that day to perk myself up a bit – I feel like a lot of you misinterpreted me as a person. You see, there were a lot.. and I mean ALOT of comments… saying “wow you looking AMAZING” and “how do you look so good?” But the ones that really didn’t sit well with me were the “I wish I could look like you when pregnant ?” NOW LADIEZ LISTEN UP! I’d had a spray tan, one that’s now manky. My hair was curled, it’s now sweat-infested in a knotty bun. I had applied my ‘glam’ makeup look that takes 30mins and I had big sunnies covering half my face. I also SOMEHOW looked thinner, especially than how I feel, but I think it was just the angles and #instahubby worked some magic that day by nailing it with the first pic. Now whilst I am only 26 and proud of the fact I sometimes make a lot of effort in my presentation, I do things like tan, makeup, hair etc quite regularly… THAT IS NOT ME EVERYDAY!!!! I can ASSURE you that 5/7 days a week, THIS IS ME ?? I’m a 33 week pregnant extremely uncomfortable woman, one with furry teeth, I have a bikini line that I haven’t seen for over a month assumably in desperate need of a good wax and owner to a smell of sweat that I can’t quite figure out where it’s coming from. This is me in all my swollen-cankles glory. This is me doing my third load of washing wearing a bathers top & undies around the house because who needs clothes inside when you’re pregnant. This is what Jaryd deals with on a daily basis and is somehow still trying to bang me every single day. Please don’t say ‘I wish I looked like you’ because whilst I should take that as a compliment and I am grateful for your kindness, every person’s body is different, everyone’s pregnancy is different, and the LAST thing I ever want to seem like I am is the person who makes everything look OK all the time. We all know that’s bullshit, true? ??EDIT: Me glammed up and going out is still “real”. It’s still the person I love being and the person that I am… I’m just saying that’s not me everyday.

Real And Raw

Sophie Cachia is a young Mummy, a blogger, a wife and has recently become a public figure. But she feels like she has deceived us with her glammed up bump pics. Sophie is not a fake, she simply enjoys the glam life. She shows her following a little snippet into the life of a mummy blogger.

She says: “I feel like I deceived you all.
I uploaded a photo (2 pics ago) of me looking pretty darn glamorous. And although I very much like that photo of myself, and I did put in effort to go out on the city looking ‘nice’ that day to perk myself up a bit – I feel like a lot of you misinterpreted me as a person.”

You see – there were a lot.. and I mean ALOT of comments… saying “wow you looking AMAZING” and “how do you look so goodLove Heart Eyes Emoji?” But the ones that really didn’t sit well with me were the “I wish I could look like you when pregnant Weary Face Emoji?

NOW LADIEZ LISTEN UP!!!
I’d had a spray tan – one that’s now manky and gross.
My hair was clean & curled – it’s now sweat-infested in a knotty bun.
I had applied my ‘glam’ makeup look that takes me a good 30 mins and I had big sunnies covering half my face.
I also SOMEHOW looked thinner, especially than how I feel, but to be honest I think it was just the angles and #instahubby worked some amazing magic that day by nailing a good one with the first pic.

Sophie is an amazingly beautiful pregnant woman who loves putting time and effort into how she looks. But she wants you to know that she doesn’t look like this everyday. This mum is real and raw and she says “this is what my husband deals with on a daily basis and still wants to bang me everyday.”

The young (and hot) Mummy is due with her second baby with former Carlton footballer Jaryd Cachia, in January. 

Keep it real young mummy, we LOVE your honesty. Keep the rants coming and the hilariousness flowing.
