It's no secret that a woman's body experiences a lot of changes during pregnancy and sometimes it can cause some insecurities.

Queen Naija opened up about those insecurities in a social media post on Wednesday. The YouTuber uploaded a selfie of her bare pregnant stomach and shared that throughout the last five years, her body has caused her "tears, frustration, insecurities, low confidence, and doubt."

"As much as I wanna write a motivational caption saying how much I embrace these, I don’t like them. I’ve watched my body transform in a matter of 5 years and it has been drastic," wrote the 23-year-old mom of one (almost two).

Despite those feelings, the "Medicine" artist said that her body's transformations have reinforced her belief of how powerful women are.

"It has caused me tears, frustration, insecurities, low confidence, and doubt. but beyond all this I still see how beautiful and powerful God created the woman. He created us to create more of us.. women deserve more respect and appreciation."

Fess up when you blow it. This is the best way to show your child how and when she should apologize.
