Beyonce told ET in an interview that her pregnancy makes her feel empowered.
“Beyoncé doesn’t just have that pregnancy glow. It’s more like a megawatt luminescence.”
My pregnancy made me feel free too – free to eat sausage biscuits and not worry about it. I was free for the first time in 10 years to not worry about the fact that my stomach poked out on a regular basis. (That’s just how it is – not particularly fat just never flat.)
As far as empowered, I actually remember feeling more vulnerable. I used to take MARTA home every Friday night because I would work until 10 or so on deadline with two sections. Michael would pick me up at the Marta station late at night. When I rode late at night after work, I felt like I had a big target on my back and couldn’t run or defend myself if something happened. I hated that feeling.
I think you feel special when you are pregnant, but I don’t think I felt empowered particularly.
How did you feel when you were pregnant?
