I've started showing these last few weeks... but only a little . i didn't think it was very noticeable .. but i went over to my step-dads sisters house today and she was just like
'Oh my god, you're getting so BIG!"
like I look like a whale or something :/ ..
i've always been super self-conscious about my weight.. I cant wait to have my baby then work out as much as I can..

Yeah I just had one of the neighbors ask my SO if I was pregnant yesturday. But I hear you, This pregnancy I started at the lowest prepregnancy weight & was on a good track & feeling good about losing weight and BAM.
Anyway, I also can't wait to start working out & being happy when I jump on the scale. :)

I hear ya! My MIL tells me I'm getting huge every time I see her.. which is a couple times a week. I don't think she knows that "hello" would suffice as a greeting even when I'm pregnant. Are you working out now? I've had to stop jogging like I was because the round ligament pain with this pregnancy is ridiculous.

I had eating disorders before I was pregnant, and I would work out 12 hours a day, so Mom made me cancel my gym membership when I got pregnant, and monitors my eating. (I'm not being unhealthy though) I'm doing yoga lately, and walking. I hate to run if its not a treadmill lol.

While you're pregnant just take it as a compliment. oh, and get used to people saying random stupid stuff. Everyone has 100000 opinions and feels like you need to hear them all. YAY! If it makes you feel any better I got weighed this week and i'm 10lbs more than I was the day my 1st was born.... :S and I have 10 weeks left to go! :S Just eat well and stay as active as you can and you'll be fine. And when ppl say that you\re getting big remember, You're supposed to ( belly and b**bs anyway :P ) it means that your small is growing, and that is a good thing!

It's too hot for me to run outside, lol, I prefer the treadmill in ac :) I like sugarfit's prenatal yoga and workouts on youtube. If DS naps long enough I'll do one of each on top of my walk. Have you tried something like myfitnesspal? It really helps me keep everything in perspective, and keeps me accountable. I thought I was over eating and it turned out to be quiet the opposite.

It's a website, but they do have an app. You set goal to loose, gain or maintain your weight, and it helps give guidelines on your food intake based on your exercise plan.

I lost 5-7 kilo when I first found out I was pregnant I'm now 20 weeks and have gained about 15.. I gain around 20-25 kilos when I'm pregnant and I'm fine with it you need to think of it as your puttin on weight and growing a healthy baby all y kids are good weights at birth and as soon as I'm done growing them I can start to get back to my pre pregnancy weight :)

When I was 7 months with this one, I was at Target with my husband, an the cashiers eyes got huge and said, "Wow! you look ready to pop!"
I said, "No... I'm only 7 months..."At this point, I'm trying not to cry. Then she asked, "With just one?!"



I was seriously heartbroken. As soon as we got outside, I broke down. Recently I was told by another stranger that I'm "huge".



I have always been very self conscious about my weight. Very. I know the feeling!

Remember that pregnancy doesn't last forever, and it's totally worth the troubles. :)
