Skinny girls can gain more. If your body changes, like wider hips and bigger butt and thighs you may not lose those. That's hit or miss. If your bookbs balloon out they may never look the same. But I'm sure you're still going to look beautiful. If your husband only married you for looks then he's not a great hubby. I'm sure he loves you for who you are.

That's terrible! I've gained about 50 lbs. throughout my pregnancy, I'm glad my midwife didn't say something like that to me. Of course, she has talked to me about my weight gain but she is always very nice and encouraging about the subject.

So far, I've only gained about 7 lbs. I wasn't "small" to begin with, so I knew I shouldn't gain TOO much while pregnant. But I'm not worried about the weight gain OR the stretch marks. My pregnancy has been good and my baby is healthy, that's ALL that matters:)

Good luck. You'll be fine. It's us women that psychologically beat ourselves up thinking DH won't love us or think we're hot anymore. I really don't think they care as much as we think.

A good man should see you as a beautiful mother of his children. And if he lives u only for your body then that's now real love.

you'll be okay :) hubby will love you for being the mother of his child.. with my first pregnancy i didnt make it far, 5 1/2 months. i gained 15 lbs because i was so sick all i could stomach was MCD's =/ i delivered and two months later i was pregnant.. i started out at 126 lbs.. by the time i was 33wks i had gained 27 lbs.. i lost ten the day the baby was born but gained it all back withint two weeks =/ It took me a 1 1/2 years to lose the entire 37lbs i'd gained (i did give up several times though) i finally got down to almost prepregnancy size which was 116lbs.. prepregnancy was between 105-110 depending.. i ended up dealing with a lot of stress and gained 15 lbs back.. i got pregnant im only 10 1/2 weeks and 132 lbs :( im majorly disgusted with myself and im not allowed to exercise being high risk.. BUT i know as soon as the baby is out i CAN and i WILL lose the baby weight.. i think once my baby is bigger and its a actual baby belly instead of "oh damn i look like i ate a entire pizza by myself" ill feel okay with the weight. You'll do fine, just breathe and tell yourself that you will lose it.. I wrote on my mirror "you are beautiful" to remind myself no matter my weight prenatal or post natal i'm still beautiful & it helped.. ;)

That's a great idea :). You'll do it too! I guess its just the fear of not but it's definitely possible with hard work. Hope your pregnancy is treating you well!!!

yeah i totally get that! after having my babies i was looking at my prepregancy jeans and post pregnancies jeans and i was like holy shit.. how am i going to get into those?! so i hung my "sexy jeans" up on the wall for inspiration.. i measured myself every week and i cut out junk food and soda and i worked out five days a week.. 3 in the gym and 2 pole dancing (for fun lol) i ended up losing 14 inches on my chest, 14 on my stomach, and 12 on my hips... thanks, so far my pregnancy is eh. having some pains here and there.. but i go to get my cerclage in a few weeks so maye that will ease my worries
