So I’m pregnant. And I am so uncomfortable and tired. It feels like turning inside out. It’s because I waited until I’m “advanced maternal age”. I have never been this uncomfortable in my life.

I know it’s not the baby’s fault - it’s just my stupid old body and the fact that I’ve always been sensitive and delicate with issues regarding my body (lifelong sickly but no diseases).

I’m glad it’s going to be a girl but oof it’s hard. I’m just ready to not be so tired and my guts feel like its gonna spill out onto the floor.

And it’s like, no body talks about it. Like yeah I know labors difficult or when something is really wrong. But apparently the baby and I are having a normal pregnancy yet UGH this awful feeling of not being comfortable in my own skin bc every position I sit or lay or stand is awful and I’m only in my second trimester.

Sorry for the vent. I guess I’m just upset I’m not some radiant earth mother goddess walking around barefoot showing off my growing belly.

This sounds scary and isolating, I send good wishes to you, mama.

Anonymous 18548


Thanks anon. I just hope I stop sleeping so fucking much. Like I currently am falling asleep at 5am and walking up at 5pm it’s so annoying.

It’s not scary as much as frustrating and annoying. I wanted this. It is isolating though bc I do feel alone. I don’t have any friends where I live. But I’m used to feeling isolated and alone (it’s nbd).

Really, I just want the 9 months to be over so I can stop feeling icky and get the annoying painful part over with if that makes sense.

How are you doing anon? If you still come here, of course.

Anonymous 18931

Damn, that sounds bad. What age is advanced maternal age? I want to wait until 30. Maybe I should just let it be, idk

Anonymous 19033

Iktf, pregnancy sucks. I hope you enjoy being a mom anon. :)

What trimester are you in? I slept a lot in first and second trimester but couldn't sleep much in 3rd trimester because I was so uncomfortable.

35. Before it was called advanced maternal age they used to call it geriatric pregnancy. If you can have kids earlier it is better, being pregnant at this age js considered high risk in obstetrics.

I love smile lines, I love to see other girls smile. There’s nothing wrong with smile lines. I’m 18 and I have had them my whole life, I guess because I’m always smiling. Embrace the face

Anonymous 19020

I know this is really late advice but you shouldn't really be developing these type of wrinkles at that age. Your best bet is orthodontics. Weight loss and sculptra can help too.

Anonymous 19030

Assuming you don't have BDD, there are fixes for these wrinkles as other nonas have said

Anonymous 19031

the side with the line is likely the side that you sleep on at night. Sleeping on your side deepens these lines even further. Try to sleep on your back, if you can.


compulsive habits Anonymous 18880[Reply]

Did/do you have a compulsive habit (nail biting, lip chewing, hair pulling, skin picking, etc) and did you improve it or get rid of it? Tips please, I bite the skin around my nails until they throb and get infected, I just can't stop even with bad tasting spray coating them or nail polish. I'm so tired of it. Before this I used to lick my lips compulsively until they were covered in a rash and peely. Seems like I have to replace one with another to kick it.

tracking my monthly progress with a habit tracker and painting my nails daily helped a lot for me

Anonymous 18959

Thank you, I am desperate enough to try it.

I have anxiety and adhd that causes my life to be neverendingly stressful (even going to the grocery store or dealing with mundane shit is enough to trigger it) so I can't really reduce stress to try and fix it.

I chew my fingers/inside my cheeks when I am stressed but I also do it when I am playing games or reading. Maybe the hypnosis stuff will work, I will try anything.

i’ve been a chronic nail biter since i grew my teeth as a toddler. for as long as i can remember i can’t stop, the only time my nails will grow is with acrylics, but even then i can’t stop gnawing at those too. recently i began to pick at my skin a lot, especially any acne that might show up, and now i have bad bacne scars from it. it really sucks, i wish i could stop all of these things.

Anonymous 19015

I was asked about skin picking at my adhd interview dumbass

Anonymous 19025

ive been a compulsive nail biter all my life, but i managed to kick the habit and my nails are super long these days. my tip is to use nail polish and replace the habit of biting with picking off the polish. had to reapply nail polish several times a week, but it worked

You can take T, it's why the bodytype is called "adrenal" anyway

going to have to turn to the black market for that. i'm glad there's a demand for testosterone already because of bodybuilders.

Anonymous 18954

pullups, trap, and delt exercises?

The ideal male body isn't really a thing because nobody cares how men look - they don't objectify them, they see them as subjects and evaluate them on traits like their personality, achievements, intelligence, humor etc.

You're better off losing the weight. Don't fall for bbls, they look stupid.

im unsure whether this should go into /feels/ or here but since this is the beauty board i think its better to go here. if this ends up being the wrong place im so sorry!!

i need advice on what places i can go to buy clothes in the same style as picrel. i guess my style at second glance is quite boyish, i really hate wearing skirts and dresses and really anything remotely "girly". i have tried places like ali-express and amazon, but the amount of choices is too overwhelming. ive never really had the chance to develop my own style or pick the clothes that i wear, i have really only gone with what i know my parents are okay with (which i all hate). all i know about "myself" (from other sources) is that i suit blues and purples, and the "deep winter" colour palette, and i like wearing baggy clothing. i haven't asked my friends anything about this because im too scared of coming off as out of the loop, so i figured i would come here as the ppl here seem very nice :) if you could give advice on just fashion stuff in general that would be very nice, and thank you in advance for saving my uni life…

Anonymous 18726

I'd check out Emmiol's website, they have a good selection of baggy jeans and shorts, as well as graphic tees. Thrifting's also great, I like getting my baggy tees from the mens section, and getting jeans/cargo pants from both mens & womens section. If you have access to a printer, you can use iron on transfer sheets and add your own designs to plain clothes to make them look like the left 3 images.

Anonymous 18997

I feel like the best way to find stuff like this is in thrift stores. I spend a lot of time in the men's section in thrift stores and buy XL or XXL men's stuff. You can make your stuff into a little project too if that's your vibe, painting on it or adding some "crafty" things like in picrel.

Anonymous 18998

So oversized sweaters/hoodies, graphic tees and baggy jeans? You can find that at mainstream stores on the high street, you just need to be able to see past the outfits on the mannequins and how the store has styled them but look at the individual items instead. And like >>18997 said thriftstores.


Fine Hair Anonymous 18857[Reply]

Does anyone else have very fine hair (diameter of each individual hair much smaller than average but a normal amount of hairs) and find that hairdressers don't know how to deal with your hair type?

Every time I go, they wash it wrong, dry it wrong, brush it wrong and then complain how difficult my hair is. It's like they've never seen fine hair before.

Anonymous 18879

i'd look online into places that specialise in fine hair. i have the opposite problem; thick, curly kinda fucked up hair and used to have the same problem. try figure out main culprit of shitty haircuts (for example, mine was when idiots used thinning scissors after i said my hair poofs lol). research into what others with your hair type are doing, and maybe even consider cutting your own hair if you are informed and confident. once you know what works for your hair then you can either do most the work yourself or properly instruct hairdressers.

but yeah try do those. try avoid cheap franchise hairdressers because they dont care and unless you are ultra specific theyll do what they do to every client so we get fudged over lol. good luck anon hair is a funny but dear thing.

Anonymous 18985


I have fine curly hair. Im not sure if the hair type matters, but porosity for sure. I have low porosity hair which requires lighter products, nothing heavy. Perhaps thats also what fine hair strands need? Everyone is always too rough with my hair so I do everything myself.

Anonymous 18996

I also have extremely fine straight hair and I, for one, have no idea how to manage it. If anyone has any tips on how to force it to hold a curl longer than 30 seconds and give it some volume that would be helpful

- surgical brow lift
- boob job

can't and never will be to afford all of that shit, and since the flaws aren't severe enough i'll be getting lip + nose filler and botox in about a month. hopefully looks good

Anonymous 10226

ah and to follow up, i want lip filler bc my upper lip is small and my philtrum is long (2cm), thinking of getting 2ml and most of it would go to my upper lip
nose filler to try to make the tip of my nose appear slimmer, as my issue is a bulbous nose
and botox to raise my eyebrows, i have nct + look like a child, i want that lift for a more sultry look

Anonymous 18979

have any of you had lip filler?
I got it done for the first time last week, but my lips feel so lumpy and it's freaking me out. Do the lumps go away?
The swelling has gone down already, to the point where the filler is barely noticable. I just hate being able to feel these lumps with my tongue.

Anonymous 18993

almost same as my list, but i need breast reduction + lift and instead of chin stuff i need orthodontics to fix my crooked teeth.

Anonymous 18995

Need an extreme breast reduction


Sustainable beauty products Anonymous 18986[Reply]

Does anyone here use zero/ low waste/ natural products? Eh shampoo, deodorant, makeup products. What has been your experience? What would you recommend/ avoid and why?

Anonymous 18987


op here, just bought the Wild deodorant that comes with a case and 3 different scents, will post a review once it arrives. Pretty expensive but i got a discount code that gives 50% off, let me know if you want me to post it.

Anonymous 18991

I use bar shampoo. It's okay? It takes some getting used to and it's a little less convenient than bottled shampoo because it doesn't spread at easily, even if it lathers up between the hands. I also tried a crystal deodorant stick, hated it. It only applies on wet skin so I brought it with me in the bathroom to apply after showering but I kept dropping it on the bathroom floor so it eventually broke. So I'm back to regular deo. I don't use low/zero waste make-up, I buy little make-up and use everything up so I feel like I don't have to go low/zero waste on top of that honestly.


Coping mechanism thread Anonymous 18955[Reply]

Been riddled with anxiety and OCD lately, therapy is terrifying so ive been trying meditation recently and its actually been surprisingly helpful. What are your coping mechanisms?

>what mental illnesses do you have?

>how do they make you struggle?
>whats your way of coping?
>would you suggest it to anyone else struggling?

Anonymous 18963


> what mental illnesses do you have ?

A lot of them, diagnosed

> how do they make you struggle ?

They handicap me in my everyday life. I live like a rat…

> what's your way of coping ?

I've learned through therapy that some on my coping mechanism are healthier than others. I punched my walls, I would hurt myself, had ideations of hurting others…

I still work on all of that. I have to, it's anchored in me. But I've learned to let it out in more gentle way. I journal everyday, I do art, abstract or whatever, to let it all out. I do go on long drive, like, whole afternoon, because it calms me so much
And I also like to go in the middle of the forest, or, in the middle of crops to scream. It may sound insane, but, it helps me so much ; and it's not like I'm hurting myself or others

> would you suggest it to anyone else struggling ?

I would suggest the healthy one to everyone and anyone. I really do believe in therapy


Learning beauty from scratch Anonymous 18960[Reply]

Hi /hb/. I'm new to the site.
I was always really shy growing up. I was too quiet and introverted to make friends, and my parents were terrible role models who didn't teach me anything. I'm an adult now, but I don't feel like one at all because of my bad upbringing. Eighteen feels so young, but at the same time, I feel like I completely missed out on girlhood.
When I leave the nest for college, I want to be as confident as other girls my age.
But I never learned anything about makeup, fashion, or anything… I just wore what my parents tossed at me.
I promise I'm not trying to throw a pity party. I'm just really overwhelmed by how big and busy the world outside my town is.
Where do I even start with beauty, fashion, makeup, things like that? I would probably cry if I had to ask this from a classmate I barely know… Please help?

Anonymous 18961

Welcome. I was in the same place as you where I didn't know a thing about any of that. I think you first need to decide what kinds of fashion you like and how you want to present yourself. One resource that helped me was browsing Pinterest for clothing styles that looked good to me, and then looking for similar clothing pieces that go with it. If you're not sure what you like, looking up 'minimalist wardrobe' can give you ideas for some clothing pieces you can mix and match together to get multiple outfits out of, which can give you more of an idea of how to layer clothing and wear different pieces. This similarly applies to makeup. Look for inspiration, watch any of the countless tutorials on YouTube, Pinterest, or even Tiktok if that's your thing. I think going for simple styles of clothes and makeup in the beginning will be a good step. Once you're familiar with that you can feel more confident branching/experimenting into other styles.

As for beauty, you can look up basic beauty routines other people have for some ideas? I think the main things to get into a routine for are washing your face, showering regularly, brushing hair, and applying skincare (which can be as simple as lotion and sunscreen). Starting with that is good, then you can do some research into hair care if that's your thing (like a weekly conditioning mask).

All in all, learning a lot of these things from scratch feels like a lot. Take it one step at a time and good luck

Anonymous 18962

Slight correction- searching up 'capsule wardrobe' will give you more pictures and ideas of sets of clothes that you can make multiple outfits from.
