Bristol Palin Flaunts Her 6-Month Baby Bump: 'I Feel Like a Tank!' (PHOTO)

bristol palinCeleb mom Bristol Palin is showing off her 6-month baby bump, although "showing off" may be a Polly Anna–ish way of putting it. This outspoken mom fully admits she feels like a "tank." Or as she describes it, "tannnkk!"


Here's the pic below, posted on Instagram, of Bristol dressed head to toe in black, gorgeous shiny hair covering her face, a verdant green background behind her:

Start of my sixth month, feeling like a tannnkk already! Eek

I think it's a beautiful photo, but I love the caption all the more. I dig how Bristol tells it like it is, sans any sugar-coating. Because let's be honest: Pregnancy may make women feel beautiful at some points, but sometimes we just feel huge and freak out. And the great thing about Palin is she doesn't beat around the bush about how she feels!

In my mind, the word "tank" is a great choice. Because while it may not suggest "I'm a gorgeous pregnant goddess!" it's not exactly negative like "whale" or "blob" either. "Tank" has a nice "I'm a warrior and I will survive!" feel to it. And that's perfect for a mom who stands up to her critics.
